You keep using those words. I do not think they mean what you think they mean.
Let me explain. No, there is too much. Let me sum up:
Production costs are of minuscule to no importance in determining retail price. Canon can charge what they choose. If you don't like the price, don't buy (or wait and see if it drops, ala 5DIII). A wheelbarrow is not listed among our assets.
Ahahaha! I love that movie! And as someone who bought the 5DIII early on, I completely agree with your point. (I live in Japan and bought it in June, and converting the yen came out to more than $3500). Sure, I would have been happier if it had been less expensive. But no Canon enforcers came by to drag me down to Yodobashi Camera and force me to buy it.
