With your luck over there it'll be £599.00 or so.
The US expected price is certainly going to tempt me.
I would guess the price in the UK, based on the US price, would be £399.This would be about £150 lower than the 11-22, which is faster and has a more rugged, weather-sealed design.
One reason I suspect UK prices are not released far in advance is that the Japanese manufacturers peg their price on the dollar. The UK/dollar exchange can change a lot in 4 months.
