5D Mark III price hike?

Hi everyone,

I had been contemplating the 6D vs. the 5DIII for the past few months, and recently decided on the 5DIII for it's superior autofocus, build, etc.  I was about to pull the trigger, but over the weekend Amazon, B&H, Best Buy, etc all hiked the price on the 24-105 kit by $200 to $3688.

What's odd is that the 6D body and kit prices remain constant.  Does anyone know what's going on here?  I live in the US and the dollar/yen conversion is better now than last week, so my suspicion is that it's canon driving the price up... but why?

Also, any thoughts on the pricing over the next two months?
