i wouldn't consider them scams. they clearly want you to buy from their vendors. they don't want to undercut their own vendors who are out there pushing their product for them.

I actually bought this lens about 10 days ago. Mine was produced in August 2009 (UX08xx).

Do you mean if I broke into the lens factory right now I might see lenses being made that will not be announced for months? Wonder if they allow cameras on factory tours.

Yes that's right, and nhbeast said it's $570 US, so for the first time it's cheaper here in Australia than the US. We usually pay alot more than you.
