We have previously seen reports of discontinued notices, so its not surprising that amazon is finally running out.
Canon has likely had their factory churning out the Mark II's for some time. It takes a few months to build up a backlog big enough to send stock all around the world.
Canon must be pretty confident that sales will take off. I plan to pass and wait for the next FF. I expect a $1799 price, and that's too much for a crop body. If it were under $1000, maybe.
agreed on the first 2 points. And like you I will be passing on this - but not due to price - I just rarely find the need for more fps than my 5d3 has (and I shoot on silent mode 95% of the time). The reach would be nice for some scenarios, but, overall I just don't do the type of shooting the 7d series is geared towards.
I do have to disagree on price though - at least your statement about being interested if it were under $1000. If it were under 1K it would not be a worthwhile release, no new nothing really, it would be a 70D with weather sealing. I am hoping it is a 2k+ PRO crop body. LOL, I will still pass on it because I don't shoot sports or wildlife, but, if it's a 2K body then it will display some of the new tech that will be in the new FF bodies, and that does excite me!
