Has anyone looked at the prices of the Nikkor 70-200 F/2.8 lately? I bought mine NEW for $1710Cdn delivered to Canada just before Christmas '07 (no, its not a greymarket one either, I have the full warranty). Amazon is showing prices of $2298US plus delivery! What the heck? I feel bad for all the people that want to get this lens now. I wonder what happened to drive up the prices that much. I mean, we are looking at a 35% increase in a 3 month period (currency conversion not included, but border fees, and all taxes are in the price I paid). Yikes! :shock: If I was still in the market today (and I am *SO* glad I bought it before Christmas!), I would be seriously looking at the Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 EX DG APO HSM for under $700. Already at a $1000 difference, I was borderline hard pressed to make the decision, but at a $1400 difference, I think Nikon *deliberately wants* to shoot themselves in the foot. What do you guys think?
