If its true, it could mean a production issue, or a shift of internal resources.  With Japan spiraling into a depression, the cost of raw materials and employees demands for higher wages may force low profit products out of production.
 

Most economic signs point that we are improving and ending decades of stagnation. While raw materials are getting more expensive because of the yen, I don't think spiralling into a depression is quite the right term. Most people are quite optimistic. Unfortunately, wages remain low.

I think your other suggestions are more realistic (shifting internal resources).

I wanted to have an all around zoom that reaches a bit over 70mm when I travel. I went to a local dealer and tried both Canon and Sigma's 24-105, I find the Sigma sharper at 24mm and at 105mm. Then again, no AFMA done with the Canon upon testing, perhaps the copy needed AFMA on my camera body.

I am very impressed with the Sigma.
