    ...Thankfully, word has it that that's exactly what Canon will be doing in short time...
    Doubtless at a much inflated price if their recent antics are anything to go by...

    To be honest it a trend across the industry. The poor exchange rate these days doesn't help either.

    Except the has been generally improving against the Yen for the last year...

    (Update)
    Canon U.K. do seem to be taking the mick on pricing at the moment though... I was talking to an American who was looking at buying a 5DIV in the U.S.A. for $2750 (from Adorama, a major dealer) and was amazed to see the U.K. best price is 3248 ($4375, +60%). All the more surprising as the exchange rate has been improving against the Yen over the last year.
    You can buy a Grey IV that's already at a U.K. grey importer (so no extra charges) for 2169 (1079 less). All my Canon stuff is non-grey as I like a warranty and a dealer to complain to, but you really do need to look for a deal IMHO. Also Canon are taking liberties considering the exchange rate. (I still bought a new 100-400 II from a London shop last week, but that does give me a right to complain.)
