Canon Rumors:
Share
I mentioned a few weeks back, that if you were going to buy anything camera related, that was the time.
There’s lots of reports of price increases across the globe. This was bound to happen as retailers were and are still unsure what stock levels are going to be like.
New rebate programs and other things have been cancelled or postponed.
There have been no price increases from Canon, only from retailers. They were running on a 3-5 point margin, now they’re up to 10 points or more in some cases.
This isn’t news to some folks, but I had to clear things up for others.

So they're making more profit but more money isn't going to Canon?

Price gouging is rampant.

Before this all happened I was going to pick up an 85/1.8, was $419, now $599+.  Big box retailers (BestBuy, etc.), followed closely by Canon direct have become the cheapest option for anything they have in stock.

AverageJoe:
But more importantly, what camera was used in that image? an AE-1 with something attached?
