I am not sure, 2 days ago i went to buy my 5DM2 and shop owner told me he is out of stock (lucky for me) he was selling body for 3,745$ (Singapore) and today price drop to 3,167$ (Singapore) with all taxes.
When i ask show owner he told me there is revision in price, is 5DM3 coming?

After reduction
3,167SGD= 2,260USD

If you are tourist you will get 7% off :cool:.

Too bad a plane ticket is over $1000 USD =P

Maybe the store owner is confused? I know the new firmware is coming out... no need to liquidate the old ones tho, firmware is free, lol.
