Re: Prices...What The...???

I am not sure if you are following, but prices for Nikon lenses (specially pro glass) are becoming less and less reasonable. I am not sure whether it is due to a strong yen vs. weak American dollar or not, but buying 2995.00 USD for the 70-200 F/2.8 VR II is absolutely ridiculous.

In Finland the price of that lens is 2100€, which is 100-200€ less than I recall paying about 15 months ago. Pretty normal price development I'd say.

Perhaps other countries' trust on your currency is failing, resulting in price increases. Or it could be opportunist camera stores who want to exploit the chaos due to the natural disaster in Japan.

I do not know what to expect, other than I hope the Japanese people recover quickly.
