If you're certain on purchasing the body sooner or later, just buy it now.

That's doesn't help, I just finished paying off the credit card, again. I was hoping for another small drop by the spring and I'll get it then. If not I really don't need it until summer time.

I saw Costco had a sale on d600 with kit lens bundle for $1999 during Christmas season. Oh so tempting! But the ergonomics were to ghastly for me. It reminds me of the old 1d2 cameras with crazy finger contortions.

Usually prices drop for Christmas then stay high for a while, that's just how the system is set up such that companies are trying to meet year end sales goals and get Christmas volume. Some credit cards were giving 5% cashback, those are probably gone till next Christmas. You can probably still get a good price, but it takes patience, they seem to come around once a quarter or so.

Were prices lower than $19k for 6d on reputable retailers, even on Christmas?

Canon seems to do that all the time. Price goes up, then a rebate is offered bring the price to about where it was before. People are tripping over themselves buying one before the rebates run out. Marketing is such an odd science. :)

I think the people who see a "sale" and rush to buy it are more odd.

By BIL just went through a store closing. It was a high end Men's clothing shop. The liquidators came in to sell out the store and brought in a bunch of other crappy stuff. They marked it up, then slashed the price and people snapped it up like craze even though they could have gone to a store like Kohl's for 1/2 of what their slashed price was.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

It isnt "odd" to buy when on sale when it is a good sale, I actually made about $200 per camera last year flipping several 5D2 when they were on sale then selling them on CL for a markup. I noticed that i wasnt the only one, some of the 5D2 refurbs on the buy/sell forum for the last year are people flipping them for a profit.


Photography is not defined by what gear you own.

My point is the word "sale" causes people to purchase irrationally, sometimes ( quite often ) spending more for the item than when it was not on sale.

Canon rebates historically were accompanied by a price increase so with the rebate taken off, you are basically at the same price before the rebates started...yet the rebate triggers this buying frenzy with people thinking they are getting such a great deal. Marketing leading sheep.

There is no rebate on 6d (body only) but the price still went up.
