Thanks for the headsup! With the Canandian dollar almost par, I wish this was $700CAN but most likely it'll be $800CAN for greedy Canadian retailers. :mad:
you mean greedy Canon Canada. retailers in Canada buy from Canon Canada not Canon USA, who sets what the price is in Canada. Some companies are better than others, ie Nintendo, others are worse, ie music and movies

And it won't be dropping in price so quickly like the sony a200... which I believe retailed at $700 or so at launch... :(

If Sony had as big of a readily expansive lens lineup as Canon, I would definitely not be on the fence about picking it up (yes, I know that there's plenty of Minolta lenses on eBay, but they're not "readily" accessible).

Feature for feature, the a200 is at least AS GOOD as this thing.
