I just looked on Amazon and the lenses have increased. I purchased the 17-40L around 1/2/09 for $619 through Adorama and now it's $685. The price has went up intraday as well. It was $638 around 9:00am central time. I'm glad I bought it when I did because it's went up 11% since I bought it 2.5 weeks ago. Looks like the price increases are hitting the US through Amazon.
