And the price goes up again

I put together a shopping cart on Amazon yesterday for several items. Logged in today to review a few things and it notified me that the price of the 70mm f/2.4 DA lens went up from $549.95 to $699.95. That's more than 25% increase in price! I checked around and found that the price is up everywhere. I'm getting really sick of this! Why do they screw around with their buyers like this?!?

699 is the full MSRP for that lens. Try calling B&H or Adorama (1-800-815-0664) and they will sell it to you for 549.

Yes, but nice as they are you have a Canadian warranty and that is just not a great idea in the US. Try calling B&H as Adam suggested - good people.
