The 1Ds MK3 is listed as low as $6599 in Canada but no stock. If Canon is to come out with a new model typically whats the trend in terms of pricing. Would the new MK4 (if that's what it's called) generally be priced well over the past model and take several months to drop? Curious if anyone knows how the higher end digital cameras were priced with Canon.
When the 1Ds Mark III was originally released, it was $7,999 (US). Here's a link to a press release from 2007. The original price is listed about a page down, right above the section titled "History."
Judging by the increased cost of the new "L" lenses (70-200mm f/2.8L II, 300mm f/2.8L II and 400mm f/2.8L II), the replacement will be more than $8,000.
