may not  be for long time...

... even so, given the weak € this is rather amazing - thanks for reporting! The 6d will have a very tough time finding customers for €2100, maybe Canon will be sorry to have omitted adding a swivel-touchscreen and a flash.

That's a great price for the 5D3. It has dropped in price from €3,600 in Ireland to €3,399 but that's still +700 euros more than the French price and we use the same currency. I've used Boulanger before to buy electrical goods whilst I lived in Spain, they are a very price competitive, high volume retailer. They have the Nikon D600 for just 250 less. Canon 5D3 vs Nikon D600 for almost the same price?

Why not? Nikon users are as unlikely to switch brands as Canon users are, and if many of them have been waiting for a ff cam but didn't want the 12mp d700 or the more expensive d800 then the demand for the d600 will be initially high.

The 5d3 will sooner or later reach the point when all people willing to pay €3000+ will have bought one, so the price has to drop to find sufficient customers - or they'll do discounted bundles with the 24-70ii which is what I'm waiting for.

That doesn't say much :-p ... agreed, the € is a strong currency in comparison to the North Korean won, but its exchange rate has taken a dive lately which reflects on consumer prices for imported goods (see links above). Back in the good ol' days you got 2$ for 1€ (well, it was DM by then), now it's only 1.3$.

CanonPriceWatch has the price dropping all over.  Even B&H is showing $3,199 so it looks like the suggested price from Canon has now changed.  http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?sub=cpw&is=REG&Q=&A=details&O=productlist&sku=847545
