I have a 1ds-Mk2 which I love really dearly, but need more action-ability.

Anyway, it's a damned large purchase, but I look forward to it.

Going to India and Maldives at the end of the month, so should get some nice shots there.

Gotta love buying from Montana dealers -- nice folks, and no tax -- though we're tax exempt anyway.

More to come!

Yes, discounts are coming big time as high end camera sales slumps.

Someone posted a graph from CanonPriceWatch recently The decline in D800 prices was about the same as the 5DIII, etc.

I don't know if you saw that Adorama had D800 refurb bodies at $2,500 last Friday.  I almost bought one, but only 90 day warranty.

How do you figure that? Nikon's financial results are way worse than Canon's.

There may be a reduction in prices, but not a decline in sales for the 5D Mark III.

Take a look at the Amazon Top DSLR Sellers list.. 5D is in the top 5, besting both the D800 and D600..
