Jessops (UK) - Canon price increases??
« on: October 25, 2011, 08:50:56 AM »
Hi all,

I've been reading CR for ages, but only just joined the forums - so hello to all you fellow Canon fans!

My current camera is a 400D, which I bought back in 2006... so it's been some time now that I've been wanting to upgrade. I had my eyes set on either a 7D or 5Dmkii, but just noticed that Jessops (here in the UK) have increased the price of both those bodies! The 5Dmkii + 24-105L kit I was about to order from Jessops has just gone up by £200! Does anyone here know what's going on or are they merely increasing prices for a short period so that they can then offer us some 'xmas deals'?

Many thanks in advance.

Prices at Vistek, a Canadian store, have risen due to the floods in Thailand.

They have posted this on their site.

Perhaps this is the reason?

I think the  actual currency rate of the Yen is one of the reasons of the price increase.

Wex are selling the 5dII body for £1475

Caution the kit with the 70-200 f/2.8 is the old, non IS version. Not that there is anything wrong with the non IS version - it is just not as good as the mk II IS
