Some corrections needed from me. I had stated that bodies had gone up by $100 the other day but, with the exception of the non-kit 6D, they were raised by $200 in one fell swoop. And although the earlier report about refurb stock at Canon Price Watch was accurate, I must have caught them in an update period that morning. Stock across refurbs is low but apparently not to the level I indicated. My apologies. With the dollar up against the yen by 30+%, due to a concerted effort by the Japanese government since last fall, you would think there would be a certain amount of price flexibility in the downward direction instead of up. However, such times are prime time for padding the margin before price competition restarts. The ~6% price rise this week added to that yen change is a 36-40% price movement, a price increase if you will (I have chosen not to start the comparison with the low price points prior to the "rebate"). Nice work if you can get it. It should be remembered though that up till last October Canon, like other Japanese manufacturers, suffered some from the exchange rate. Still, this aggressive, planned move of their currency is not a flash in the pan, it is a long term policy that I expect to see maintained as they try to get their moribund economy back running again. It remains to be seen if Canon's (and others) pricing will reflect that or if our demand will allow them to charge these newer prices. It's not going our way folks, good time to wait and watch.
