It was around that price this time last year -- but it didn't have all the extras thrown in. I came within a click of buying it then.

This is a great deal!! A lot of folks might be hard pressed not to buy it as a second body.

You'll be better of with a 6D.  Just wait a little bit and it'll go down to around 1700 to 1800 just like the 5D3 price going down.

5d3 kit with 24-105mm is now $3499 at B+H...

5d2 for $1599 is tempting but I;ll also wait on the 6d or 5d3.  I tested the 6d with a 24-105 at a local camera store last week and was impressed with it.  I think my wife would use a 6d alot more often due to the wifi and her not having to deal with the "hassle" of manually transitioning sd cards to her laptop.
5d3 --- 60d --- 50mm-f1.8 --- 18-135mm --- 60mm macro --- 70-300is --- 100-400l --- 24-105l --- 17-40l --- 430ex ii

Not quite. It was 1999 last year with a CF Card and a little Lowepro bag, from B&H. I got one. I kept a pretty close eye on sales last December, and I didn't see anything lower than that.
In landscape photography, when you shoot is more important than where.

Gear: Canon 5DmkII, 17-40mm f/4 L, 50mm f/1.4, 70-200mm f/4.

You may be right. I don't remember well enough to say for sure. But I seem to remember it was the week between Christmas and New Year, and it was lower than $1999.

Either way, doesn't make any difference. My 5D3 arrives tomorrow. I've been suffering the AF of a T2i for almost three years now. What a relief!

I'm very much happy with my 5DII I just recently got an amazing deal for, it was "used" but only about 3K clicks, even once the 6D comes down in price, like to 1700 (not a chance, gotta wait at least a year for that to happen!). The extra ISO performance and the AF that works better is great and all but not $1000 better (for me), especially with that grip, the 5Ds have that comfortable well fitting grip, the 6D feels like a rebel and won't stay in my hand for long with a 70-200. And no joystick... and that not-as-fast flash sync... should have added that swivel screen even if it meant more work for the weather sealing and weight

Smart Canon response to Nikon's D600/D800 deals. :D

The last post that I saw said that there was an extra battery and battery grip included as well as a CF card so I bought it on the bhphoto website and now your post has changed to say a camera bag and a CF card. Is it because the battery grip one has been sold out?
