Sometimes, it's also the first adopters fault. I'm not saying Canon doesn't get any blame on why prices are not stable. Law of supply and demand states that the more the demand, the higher the cost of the goods especially if supply can't cope up. Well, it's a "sickness" actually. It's very contagious. I guess, if you really want good prices for Canon (as with non-Canon) gadgets and have it clean and bug-free, it's better to wait at least 3-6 months before buying one. I always restrain myself on buying the "newest" and the "best" gadgets. I had a policy for myself. If I really want something, I must be prepared to wait. Sometimes the urge just goes away after a night or two. If even after 6 months the itch is still there then it means I really want it. As of now, I'm really asking myself if I really want the 6D or the 5D3. Sometimes, one look at my pictures and I reminded myself that it's not the camera that counts. It's the man behind the camera. I've got a lot of friends with newer cameras than my old 500D but they're always asking me why they can't get pictures that they wanted the way I got mine even with all their new gadgets. I just told them that experience is irreplaceable. Just take your camera and shoot irregardless if it's old or new. The pleasure I get from photography is always from the feeling I get after viewing the pictures that I have taken and not after viewing the camera or lens that I used to take them. I'm sorry but I'm always pissed at seeing people with better gadgets and yet they are still complaining.
