Wow... Canon can go just screw themselves. This lens has an awesome prices in the states... in Japan, it's 300,000 JPY which works out to $2600 USD. Guess this will be another lens I will have to purchase in the states. Man, really Canon.
No, it's not.
Yeah I saw that, but was quite skeptical as I wasn't seeing that price anywhere else. I did see the following where the MSRP is set at 30man yen though. Since the $2200 price listed here is the MSRP in the U.S. I thought it would be prudent to compare MSRPs.
But it seems a lot of retailers are offering that lens for 26man so that's actually cheaper than the states. So it seems I over-reacted a little bit. By why would they set such an outrageous price right from the get go?
