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.

Yes I believe. I was actually more concerned with the US price.

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.

That's actually more of what I have thought. Based on the fact that the yen is still strong, the euros strong and the US dollar weak.

This is the Yen vs Dollar (it is very obvious here: The yen is strong, the US is weak)

This is the Euro vs Yen (the chance is less significant)

The Euro vs Dollar (the Euro is getting stronger those days)

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