I was ordering a new canon SLR from warehouse express yesterday. The salesman was telling me that they are expecting the price of cameras and equipment to increase due to the problems thats going on in Japan. Something i hadnt really thought about but a lot of gear will be made over there

It depends which one, as many are made outside Japan. So L series lenses and top bodies a concern, the rest less so.
I would imagine that if you are preparing for a major purchase now wouldn't be a bad time to go ahead assuming you have the ££££s.
Some dealers will probably raise the price on the stock they already have.

of course its called -- Capitalism.
With a % of the cost going back to rebuild Japan it's not all bad news.
Price rises are happening all around the camera world and its not all just due to supply shortages, its also due the the strength of the Yen and the weakness of the Doller.
