Canon Price Drops on L Lenses

It would be interesting to see what Pentax does with their lens prices...

Some of the drops quite substantial, too. Hope Pentax goes (back) to lower prices, as well.

It looks like the lower sales figures in the DSLR market are hitting Canon harder than expected. Most likely lowering the marginals to keep up market shares.

Who really knows what the reasons actually are:
  • Yen/Dollar trade - a year ago the relationship was quite different.
  • Inventory adjustment - What do they have in their warehouses vs on the dealer's shelf.
  • Production allocation - The production of various lens vs what has been selling of late.
  • The whole mirrorless - dSLR question and the relationship it has on what lenses are selling?
  • What is selling vs what is not?
  • What is generating the most profit?
  • What they want to encourage the selling of?
  • New lens announcements vs current inventory - what is replacing what perhaps?
You can only make some educated guesses from reading the tea leaves of the financial statements.... Then there is Photokia in a few weeks.

They are reducing inventory of all their current EF mount lenses because Canon are changing their lens mount again?
