p.1 #1 · Canon Lens Price doubled in India


All of a sudden the Canon has increased the listed price of their lens in India . The increase is almost double in the Indian market. Why only in India this has happened? Any reason? . Surely this will increase the share of gray market .

The upward trend of photography gear, mostly lenses, has taken place for awhile, and not only in India. Just to cheer you up and to make you feel some what better.... .

In the USA at least they wait until they bring out a MKII version before doubling the price. Whatever, it's a good excuse to hang on to my ancient L optics.

To OP: Are you sure these are the same lenses and not the new MKII versions? Those have doubled in price.

Almost anything with a mk II in it's name except the 16-35L mk II, and 24 f/1.4L mk II, which have come down to more reasonable levels since launch.

I was actually asking the OP, as I was going to buy the lens in India to get the Indian warranty. Canon India's website does not tell me which ones increased in price, just the present prices.
Thanks a lot, though

As far as I know, the increase is in all lenses. However the magnitude of increase will differ. If you are taking a lens from US to your friend, you will get it cheaper in US anyways (my experience so far), specially if you are taking a L lens. However, be ready to slug it out at airport with customs.

Cheers,
Kartik
