Price Increases Coming to USA? [CR1]
« on: January 02, 2011, 12:47:11 PM »
Unable to confirm as of yet PR has posted a report that Canon USA will be raising prices as much as 10% come February 1, 2011. I have been unable to confirm that is going to happen. The reported reason is to combat the weak US dollar.

It’s completely believable.

Didn't the same thing happen in 2008?

I wonder if the more recently released lenses, such as the 70-300L, will also be hit by this or if their price already takes this into account?

I just got an email from Robert's Imaging out of Indianapolis that price increase is Feb 1. They didn't say how much, but just it's going up.

There's now more confirmation with a detailed price list leaked on some sites.

This price increase only affects lenses and speedlites.

apparently it does ... which I'm surprised to see.  everybody was talking about the 70-300 L coming down in price very soon, but I wonder if that will still happen.

also wonder if the new superteles are going to get jacked up in price.  slow to appear and more expensive than expected seems like a nasty new year surprise from Canon
