Yesterday I checked the price of Canon Primes on Amazon and was surprised to see some price increases . For ex
1) 50mm f1.8 used to cost $85 now its $91
2) 85mm f1.8 used to cost $355 now its $429
3) 50mm f1.4 I don't remember the exact old price but I was pretty sure that it used to cost less than the current price of $355.
Also Amazon says that all these lenses ship in 1 to 4 weeks which might indicate that they are getting a new lot of lenses from Canon and they have increased the price for these lenses. These price increases are coming a few weeks after the price increase this year. I hope that its Amazon not Canon increasing these prices.
B&H and Adorama still have the same price but except for the 50mm f1.8 the rest of them are backordered or out of stock. I was wondering if any one else has any news about price increases on these primes
