Is this yet another "only in the U.S." discount?

Maybe it's a limited time promotion. Both Wex Photographic and Castle Cameras in the UK had the lens available on pre-order for 1,572 vs the previous - and current - price of 1,849. I don't see too many people in the UK being prepared to pay the higher price when there is evidence that discounting has already taken place during pre-order, and is therefore likely to happen again. It could even be a strategy to give Ricoh more time to produce the lens in sufficient numbers...
