31 000 Swedish kronor

translated

4 654.805 U.S. dollars




While it seems simple to compare the pricing " injustice" by simply using an exchange rate, that is would be so far from how pricing is actually determined in different countries and markets. The USD price of the camera is based on US consumer purchasing power, the exchange rate and fair market value.

It's not fair but hey, if you think that US consumers are getting a great deal, go ahead and exchange your money, buy the camera from a US seller , and see what price you end up paying. After you do this and pay about an extra $1000 USD you'll understand the price and exchange rates don't work out that way. It's all based on relative purchasing power... Not the actual exchange rates.

For those interested in market pricing strategy

In Romania 16 000 RON means 3.680 EURO or 4.878 US$ ... so, jbwise01, just empty words

I'm fed up of reading this forum today and hearing people complaining about the 5DIII pricing. Did you ever think it was going to sell for less than $2500? The prices will be lower when it hits the high street stores when it first comes out. But most importantly,

1) Do you NEED a 5DIII?

if not, shut up.

2) Can you afford a 5DIII now?

if not, shut up.

3) Can you ever afford a 5DIII?

if not, shut up.

4) If you can afford it but are not considering buying it

shut up

5) If you want to buy a 5DIII but will wait for a year when the price drops, then why are you complaining about the prices NOW? It is irrelevant.

shut up

6) If you actually need a 5DIII and really wanted to buy it now for pro use. Well done. You fall into the 5% of population here on this forum. Your opinion and rant is valid.

Everyone else, stop jumping on the bandwagon and stop complaining.
Too many shut ups from one people  ;D
I think you are a teacher in real life (or a little dictator) and you take theese things too personal  :)

EOS Bodies / Re: Hugely Disappointed In 5D III Price

I would never really consider a 40mp 35mm sensor. Not until a second generation version at least. Image quality is king and even with my 1Ds3 I've taken landscapes that print a meter wide.

High MP = Small pixels = not good for IQ
When Canon offered 21Mp senzor the Nikon's users said the same because they had only 12Mp at that moment. And Nikon was leader in high ISO ...
Let's wait for proff reviews and comparisons   :)

The 3500US and maybe 3500 EUR here is huge in my opinion. For the moment 5D2 is great.

A spec list tells me nothing like how good a dynamic range the new sensor has or how well it performs in low light. Based purely on it, it is impossible for me to decide weather or not i'm going to upgrade. We'll see.
Agree ... I will wait for first reviews

For kids growing history the IS is fundamental over any IQ or extra reach. For portraits or landscapes IQ is more important.

Canon General / Re: Canon Destroys Nikon in DSLR Marketshare for 2010
« on: April 21, 2011, 02:37:48 AM »
Honestly does may sound a wee bit ridiculous but I believe it is because Canon entry level (and well all DSLR's) are manufactured in Japan, whereas Nikon crop sensor cameras a manufactured in Thailand (I know many people that got Canon over Nikon for this very reason).
Agree, Made in Japan is a terrific selling tool. But it is a very important parameter for determining the value of an object on the second hand market too so people are right to be attracted to this label.

Lenses / Re: Will there be an updated 2.8L Macro?
« on: April 19, 2011, 06:52:57 AM »
Anyone have any idea if there will be a Macro 100 2.8L II ?  I am more interested in getting the new optics that come with the II than the IS.  Canon seems to be slowly making II versions of the L series.  Just my guessing that is.
My opinion is : don't buy canon 2.8/100L Macro, this first class lens doesn't function on nikon's bodies ...
Just a joke but, really, first thought through my brain after read your question was: this is not a canon man ...

I have owned this lens for a month, but I sold it and now I have a 24-105L. I think 18-200 is fair for the price, excellent all-around and family photos in the park. Good sharp, good close-up capabilities. Not so good: zoom creep after one month of intense use between 18 and 135mm.

Lenses / Re: Which two lenses should I get
« on: April 11, 2011, 10:47:02 AM »


So... if compact travel gear is ur top priority, go for the 24-105+70-300 option.

If you want a balance btwn size and picture quality, try the 24-105+70-200(f/4) option

If reach is your biggest concern, the 24-105+100-400 would be the best.

If you really have to make room for sports/fast action shots, the 24-105+70-200(f/ 2.8L) is probably the best choice (though be warned... your back will start hurting soon).


Excellent. Thanks. I have the same dilemma and your answer start to solve the problem :)
