Well I was looking at the 24-70 2.8 (BRICK) on B&H and it's $949. I checked kakaku.com (Reasonable Japanese site) and its 150,800Y. I'm just estimating, but that is near $2000 USD! Why would a Japanese product be that much more expensive in Japan? Even when the exchange rate was better, it was still more expensive . Any particular reason? What are your thoughts?
I'm guessing because photography maybe more popular here vs America? I don't know...Thoughts?
