Canon 5D Mark II and the Japan tsunami


I’ve been looking for a 5D in the Portland area, and am having no luck. There are some kits available (with the L lens,) but they run $3,300.

Phone call with [redacted]:
Me: Any 5D Mark II bodies in stock?
Sales Associate: No, just the kits.
Me: they run $3,300, right?
Sales Associate: No, the price just went up because of the tsunami.

Supply and demand. I’m all for capitalism, but damn. I can’t believe I’m having so much trouble finding a 5D body only in Portland. If anyone knows anyone selling a used one in Portland, let me know.
