Canon General / "MAP" pricing....How long will it last????
« on: April 13, 2014, 03:08:52 PM »
So every so often Canon decides to enforce their "Minimum Advertised Price" policy sending prices for their cameras and lenses back to "MSRP" levels. Seems like price fixing to me but apparently it's legal. I was ready to purchase a Canon 6D With 24-105mm lens but went from being priced at $1999 to $2,499 overnight. I did not buy the 6D and I am glad because I decided not to compromise and buy the 5D Mk II. Having said that I will not pay MSRP. I am in no hurry and will wait for a sale. My question is how long do retailers go along with Canon before before they begin offering discounts on cameras and lenses. I don't see how raising prices across the board helps Canon sales, but I am no business expert. I am sure they know something I don't, but they will not get one dollar from me unless the gear is discounted. Any thoughts out there????
