Full MSRP is always higher than what the street price will be in 6 months.  The early adopters are happy to pay full MSRP, but prices soon fall by about 20-25%.

It will settle in at about $1100-$1200 next year. 

We will see how well it eventually sells, but indications so far are that it is selling well indeed.

Well I just looked at the price of this lens online here in the UK... £1329
convert that to dollars.... $2000
price form B&H in US.... $1599
convert to UK.... £1025

so in the UK it costs £304 more.... or $400 more  >:(

so there must be something seriously wrong somewhere....
either canon is getting more profit, or there is tax involved somewhere...  >:(

I think I will get a 100-400L IS for £1069 and save £260.  ::)

this lens is short and solid a lot easier to use than the push pull 100-400.
you can hand  hold it all day, now i'm thinking about selling my 70-200 IS L II 2.8.

I'm traveling through China and just bought the lens for only $1350. I was so shocked when the salesperson told me the price I had him check to make sure he wasn't making a mistake. I tried the push pull on the 100-400 and found this much better as well. Images are super sharp as well.
