"... get away with this..." is a polite way of putting it for this particular lens at its new price. I can't believe that their costs have risen that much. I guess that I'll be hanging on to my last EF lens somewhat longer.


The dollar has depreciated about 5% against the yen in the last six months.  So on a $2,000 lens, Canon actually gets about $100 less than before.  From their point of view, they have just reset their margins to what they were before.
