anybody heard anything about this as of yet? Does this mean that there is indeed the mythical 5D MK III coming out of hiding? Your thoughts......

Well the price reduction is on in Canada. Widely available for $2000 hich suggests that a MKIII might be here sooner than we think.

We've seen Jessops in the UK reduce the body to £1549 and the body + 24-105 f/4 L pack to £2095 (a £50 drop in both instances) in the last few days.

I've got a 40D and I'm buying the 24-105 f/4 L in the next few days - was tempted to buy the body + lens package but I think I'll hold off for now to see how far the mkii falls or the reason as to why this is happening i.e. an imminent mkiii announcement...

Don't sweat it, with the way this economy is going they'll be giving these things away soon.

A return to pre-tsunami pricing maybe?

First time seeing this low of a price for the 5Dmk2 in Canada.
Usually, our neighbor down south always has better pricing.

I predict that the 5D Mk III will be here on March 5th, 2012...the 5th day of the 3rd month...5D 3.
