    The word out in the far-east is Canon accessories would go up by 4% come Feb. Haven't a clue about the overall sales numbers but 5DII's appear to be selling well.

    China's currency is still tied to the dollar.


    Japan's is not...





    Stuff at Walmart, still cheap.


    Stuff made in America, rare, but a weak dollar makes it easier to export, doesn't change much for domestic prices.


    Stuff made in Japan, gets more expensive, assuming their currency doesn't tank as quickly as ours

    Yeah I've heard that they will go up 4% just before the "Cashback" and the Cashback will hide this development. I have seen some changes here in Sweden aswell. I was thinkin about buying the 5DMkII but now I do not know. We have not had the Cashback here in Sweden since last spring.

    I have been lookin on one specific lens and I've seen the price go up. I do hope you are correct and that they will not put a general higher price (more then the lens I've seen).
