I guess this isn't new but "Wow" on recent price jumps.
May 12, 2011

I just realized that the retail on a 1DMkIV jumped 10% at both my favorite NYC online retailers. A BP-511 battery jumped 20% over the last few days (I ordered two to replace some old ones, so I know the price jump). Glad I got the 1DMkIV when I did.

Bought a EF-S 17-55 in 2009 and now its almost 15% higher.

I know things are tough in Japan, but wonder if this is the new "standard"? Due to $ vs Yen or other reasons?
