do you complain about the depreciation of your car after you drive it off the dealerships lot? because that is alot worse than what any of the camera companies are doing.

this is not a new trend....its the primary reason i dont buy camera gear within the first year of its release. sry you feel burned, but this is how it goes and its been this way for a while.

chalk it up to a learning experience and show a little patience next time.

Which car are you talking about?
By the way, many people know cars will depreciate and for the most part you can pretty much KNOW how much in how long.
Did you know that this camera would loose over 25% of it's value in 6 months?
With the car, you can make a decision based on an educated assumption.

If I knew the camera would drop almost $1000 since release, I would have waited.
If I knew that I could purchase the camera for the same price that I did(at release) now, and get a free L lens... I would have waited
Point is, I believe that these price drops occured too soon.

Honestly, how many of you purchase items that drop this much of a price in 6 months?
when I purchase an iPhone, its the same price until... the next iphone comes out.

The flat screen TV that I purchased for $1500 when it came out almost a year ago, is till $1200

I tried to sell mine for 3,000 on CL a few weeks ago. Didn't get one single bite.
they are going for about 2800 around here. Many of them claiming to be unopened boxes

Sounds to me like someone who is trying to sabotage a damn near perfect reputation of magic lantern. Seems a bit like a troll to me

I should have waited to purchase mine smh. The price of this camera seems to be dropping quicker than a brand new vehicle. Almost 15% since release.

EOS Bodies / Re: Lasers Can Damage Your Sensor
« on: August 16, 2012, 08:14:58 PM »
This has been known about for quite sometime. I believe it has to be in liveview as well when the laser hits it.

Im just curious how canon would handle a warranty repair on such instance as there is certainly no warnings from them about the possibility of this happening. So would it be user area and no free fix/replacement from canon?

« on: July 26, 2012, 03:18:01 PM »
I knew I should have waited  >:(
I've even seen it as low as 2800.
A canon authorized dealer were selling them not too long ago on ebay with the battery grip and memory card for 3200 and change SMH.

such a huge price drop in such short time. I really wish I would have waited.

And I don't like to read the lamentations about "D600 is better than the new Canon FF" - both do not exist in our hands and we cannot compare them really. And ... I have spent a lot of money in some glass for the Canon EF mount - switching to Nikon is not a matter of saving (hypothetically) 500$/EUR, its to buy a lot of Nikkors ... oh, impossible, I cannot replace all the glass I need because Nikon has not these options ...

I agree, too much spec racing going on and we dont have confirmation yet, the D600 could end up being the same price for all we know.  And the D800 feels so cheap I'd be scared to see what a $1500 D600 felt like, probably all plastic and flimsy as crap.
One of the major differences between the 5d2 and 5d3 is the autofocus. That to me is the reason why the 5d3 costs 1500 more. Although this entry level full frame wont have an AF as good as thre 5d3, it is rumored to be an upgrade from the 5d2. So why isn't it worth the same price as the 5d2 again?  Basically the only difference between the 5d2 and 5d3 is the AF and thats worth $1500 in that case. but this AF UPGRADE isn't worth the same price? Im lost. and this is coming from a 5d3 owner.
