That's by far the highest price I've seen, and I suspect this is a scam as speculated above.  However, Canon jacked the price of the original version as soon as the v.II came out.  I had been waxing and waning for two weeks about buying a v.I. and hoping it would come down in price when the v.II came out.  it had been $1400 at both B&H and Adorama the whole time then suddenly B&H went up to $1500.

The next day, it was $1600 at both B&H and Adorama.  I quickly went to check Adorama's Ebay store and was still able to get it for $1400.  The day after that, it was $1600 at Adorama's Ebay store too.  I feel like I narrowly dodged a $200 bullet and that the bullet came directly from Canon.
