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.

Body only that is. 24-105mm kit is still a good price.

Thanks for the link!
So what do you guys think is the reason for the price increase?

Either end of Canon wholesale discount/incentive or exhaustion of stock.
Prices could drop tomorrow if new incentive on offer.

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.
