There are enough of the pricing threads out there and at this point that most of voices and opinions have been heard on the matter. The willingness, or means, to buy is purely subjective and a personal decision.
The OP, who appears long gone and has failed to respond to a number of questions despite being active, had concerns about the price of his gear being brought down by the newer model. Most recognize that this happens and give it little thought. In the OPs case, it appears tougher given his previously stated finacial issues, as stated in his for sale threads. For the OPs sake, I hope his situation has changed in a month, but again, we should not further encourage another argument over the merits of Canon's pricing structure, something none of us have control over. We can only control whether we think it is a good personal decision to purchase it. If enough people choose not to buy, then the product will suffer. In this case, that does not appear to be happening despite the bickering over $3500.
