Been noticeing the price on the fc40 on amazon from every seller has been going up and up and up for the last week or two and every time i look they seem to be about $20 each time. They went form about $449US from most sellers to $469 then $499 the othe other day and NOW over $550-560 ish. I also notice there seems to be less and less original parts for them on amazon to and the ones that can be had seem to of also gone up in price also. Wondering if any one knows whats up with that? I'm thinking maybe just Christmas price gouging.
