I'm agree with gene_can_sing and scalesusa :D

It can be a marketing tactic, but after the stock is out, the new model will eventually come and I hope 5d3 will be announced at canon expo this May  ::) . I'm so excited  :)

First-time poster, long-time lurker here.

It seems there is a significant discount on Canon bodies everywhere. I managed to get a 60D for 850USD from B&H just now! Best Buy has the same price in stock as well.

Thanks for the news ;D

Bogus shananigans I tell you. Did you notice nothing is happening on the lenses? Especially the 24-70! I have been holding off on this one for 10 months now
I think it is just the expected production issues

You can say shenanigans, but im pretty sure Best Buy was just trying to clear out what they had.  Even if they only had them available at two stores in the whole country, they still have to put the price on the web.

The current 24-70 is a great lens, just get the damn thing!  You held off for 10 months because Canon Rumors said a patent existed?!  Filing a patent is just the first step, it could be years from that point that it actually gets released. 
5DIII/5DII/Bunch of L's and ZE's, currently rearranging.

Don't know.  :-\ I think maybe after the Expo in Shanghai. The lens is 8 years old so I really think in 8 years some things should change
