I got my 5D3's for 3000$ and 2499$. This was little over 6 months into the release and I'm glad I waited for a good deal. The 5D3 is nearly the perfect camera for me, and currently see possibly never upgrading.

Yes, It's 1800$. I must have viewed an old page.
Not bad, but I can find mk2s locally for 1200$. Still A bad value.
The 6D is not a bad value. As a matter of fact, the 5D2 is the bad value... allow me to explain:
If you care about high-ISO noise performance, then the 6D is an incredible value at $1800 because it provides the same high-ISO performance as a $2500* 5D3 or $6000 1DX.
If you don't care about high-ISO noise performance, a used 5D2 is a bad value because it costs $1200 and has crappy autofocus whereas a used 7D can be had for $900 and has superior autofocus.
*Please do not say that the 5D3 is easily available for $2375 or whatever refurbished. That price is only when you buy direct from Canon, and Canon adds sales tax and shipping which drives the price closer to or over $2500.
