So, in case you haven't noticed, the dollar has been on a run of late. It's backed off a bit to $1.10(USD) to the Euro today from last week's peak of $1.05. But it''s still a great rate. In addition, many things sell for much less in Europe than they do in the US. Add the two together and you can get great prices for things. The Sony A7R body is now under $1400 from Amazon France. That's $600 less than Amazon US. There are some caveats. The primary thing is the warranty won't be valid in the US. There are other things that are a great deal. LA-EA4 for about $235 QX1 for about $260 RX100 for about $320 A bunch of lenses. These prices all include shipping. Make sure to check the various European Amazons, Amazon.fr/Amazon.de/Amazon.it are the big ones. The other countries don't seem to have quite the same selection. Each one has slightly different pricing.
