I have been tracking the price on the Canon 5D Mark II with 24 to 105 lens for a week. I found several places selling it for $2,640 I am ready to bye and in one day all those place raised the price $160 is a conspercy, how can a camera jump that much that has been on the market for years.

is 5DII production discontinued? If so that makes sense. Amazon often list "new" discontinued items at higher price than even the newer item that replaces the old one.

Since when do you have to pay tax on Amazon?

It is not what Amazon want, but few states require Amazon to do so. (Their home state and states where they have affiliates)

Your state would require Amazon to collect taxes if it has any facility (warehouse, office, affiliate, future store plans) in that state.
