    I'm so happy I bought mine a few weeks back. I have 3 batts in total. Good enough for now.

    If you shop on Amazon, you can get them for as little as $113 here.

    ^^^ For us Canucks, Amazon.com DOES NOT ship them to Canada. :(

    B&H does but now at those prices, not worth it anymore.

    Moral to the story is when P2 batteries finally dropped in price. They never went back up. You could even start buying discounted 2 pack p2 batteries. I dont understand how P3 batteries were already lowering in price before the p4 came out. Once it was released p3 batteries went to an all time low at $119. Now back to the original $150. Same price they were when they first came out.

    Are we certain that it's not just B&H raising their prices?
