Still $1796.00 USD here in the states. I'm curious about the spread relative to the D810 and 5DM4 in other countries. In the States, a D810 is $2800 and a 5D4 is $3500. I wonder if the % difference in those currencies is reflected in the new prices relatively?
Ummmmm . . . $1946 at both B&H and Adorama now.

Yep. JPY has appreciated 20% +/- versus USD the last six months as well.

Still $1796.00 right now on Amazon Prime. But yea it's $1996 at B&H and Adorama, so I guess the price hike is worldwide and Amazon will jack it up after the weekend. Glad I bought mine last week!

The price in Sweden has stayed unchanged at SEK 19 690 body only (~ EUR 2 038) but when I went to the shop to pick my up my copy there was a discount so I got it for SEK 17 690 (~ EUR 1830).

Where did you buy it? And when?

I see that at Fotokungen you get a 2000 SEK price cut. Also if buying a 15-30 they have a 1500 SEK price cut.

I hate to say this, but this makes me feel even better that I purchased my K1 when I did. My usual luck is to buy something and then watch the price tank just after my purchase.

I think we all suffer from this!

Can't imagine Brexit has anything do it with it all. At the present time, Brexit is a concept and a forthcoming event with strictly no changes whatsoever in current situation, structure, trade and circulation rules for the UK within the EU. The only ill effects are psychological at this stage. Secondly, Brexit cannot explain a 200€ price hike in Denmark...
It's the Yen, recently so strong Toyota had to shut down the lifts in their factories and offices to save money. If your economy is based on manufacturing exports a strong currency is the last thing you want, hence why the Germans cling to the Euro/Eurozone.

I don't think Brexit will be the big event everyone fears it to be.

It depends for whom... Great Britain is primarily an importing country, so a strong currency is actually desirable...

. . . which we know is totally unsustainable and a re-balancing (however painful) needs to happen sooner rather than later.

Frankly, the Euro is the Deutschmark in drag, and the ECB bitterly clings to the DM.

It is the Yen exchange rate - hence the Euro-wide impact.

What I can't understand is why the K1 is 10% more expensive in EU that US

I assume it's due to differences in import duties and/or sales tax / VAT (all our prices are quoted inclusive of VAT)...
