Well I just looked at the price of this lens online here in the UK... Â£1329

convert that to dollars.... $2000

price form B&H in US.... $1599

convert to UK.... Â£1025

so in the UK it costs Â£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 Â£1069 and save Â£260.
