Any evidence of the weaker yen affecting camera gear prices?

I don't pay attention to other gear, but Canon stuff has actually gone UP quite a bit in the last 6-8 months. For instance, the 5DIII was well under $3000 last year--it is around $3300 now. (typical prices--you can find different prices occasionally).

The Canon 24-70 f/2.8L II lens is going for roughly $2100. Canon strobes, grips, even filters and hoods are really expensive and rising.
