just curious, anyone know how much the 5D2 was eight months after it’s release?
As far as I recall, the 5DII price at launch in 2008 was as follows:
5DII body only - $2700
5DII body and 24-105 lens - $3500
I cannot remember the price several months after launch. However, the price in early to Q3 2011 was as follows:
5DII body only ~ $2200
5DII body and 24-105 lens - $2800
Hope that helps.
Worst UK Lowest Price: £2299.99 23/09/2008
approx exchange rate in 2008 2$ - 1£: $4600
Wow some difference to the 5DII body only - $2700 you remember, not ever UK taxes can account for that!
Worst Lowest Price: £2999.00 04/03/2012
@ current exchange rate: $4842
Current Lowest Price: £2399.00 25/10/2012
@ current exchange rate: $3872
Curently $3199 at B&H
Thats only $637 of a ($) difference which will be UK taxes and the current UK price is in line with the initial 5D2 UK price
Now there is a good chance I may have gotten my sums wrong somewhere so appologies if I have but it looks to me like someone leveled the playing field
