Adorama is accepting pre-orders for the EOS 6D with the 24-105 for $2699 - that includes a $200 instant rebate. That was quick! By comparison, B&H's pre-order price is $2899.

I scored a MK3 for 2499$! What does that say about canon camera prices dropping?

Be patient and you won't have early adopters regret.

+1

I said something similar on a different post that asked "will we have an FF at $1000 ever"...pricing like this for 6D suggests where the market is headed.... yes ~$1000 strip-down FF's are clearly on the horizon.

$1200 seems pretty optimistic, I'd expect something closer to $1500.

I have a 6D with the kit lens pre-ordered from B&H. I just received the order confirmation yesterday and it was $200 less than retail even though online it still said $2899. I thought there was a nice mistake in my favor.
I just looked again online just and it's showing $2699 now :)

Ditto.
$1,800 retail
$1,500 eBay

I wager $20 on it.

Not optimistic at all...in fact, 12 months after release I fully expect 6D to be about $1200, and perhaps even $1100. Read the tea leaves with 5D III price trajectory.

While I too think this is overoptimistic, I hope you are right.  For that price, I would face the wrath of the wife to add this as a second body to my 5DmkIII.

;) I stand by what I say, but remember, its not such a risky prediction. After all, 12 months really is a long time especially in the tech world. People who claim this pricing could never happen would have conveniently "forgotten" by then or remain mum when that day does come... as it always inevitably does.

Importantly, the fall in price would be well managed by the retailers and Canon. That is, a sale here for $1800 first, an ebay deal for $1700 there, a $200 rebate here, a hard-to-pass up "bundle" price there.... it will be managed so smoothly that the early adoptor who paid 2K+ doesn't throw himself off the cliff. :)

But again, 12 months is a long time. By then, the hot item that the folks here would be defending "will never drop below a certain price" will not be the poor 6D (which by then would be yesterday's news) but some new fangled 51 MP EOS 3D.  The same suckers...er... I mean fans...will be pre-ordering it at $5,600 ;D

Is it really wrong to want to have the latest and greatest as long as it's in your budget?

Although, I for one am quite excited to see that B&H and Adorama are both apparently selling the 6D w/24-105 kit for $200 under original suggested price.  I was planning on going body only, and picking up a used 24-105mm, but with the price drops, it's better to buy new.  Or even just buy the package then sell the lens on eBay.  It's nice they are helping out early adopters somewhat.

6D might turn-out to be your first body if all the remarkable images it's churning out as against 5D3.  Of course, that is if you're not into sports or something where you need a lot better AF.

Besides 61pts Vs 11pts, 5D III has better center focus point than 6D (dual-cross Vs single-cross).

AF in 5D3 center point is better but depends on what or when you are shooting.  You can also argue that 6D can focus @ -3EV.

Saying that, it seems the general reaction to 6D images that its DR is closer to a 1DX than to a 5D3.  Shadow recovery is a little bit better with 6D.  I'm withholding judgment till I get hold of 6D though.

We've almost hit that year, and with warranty on eBay we are looking $1,667 right now.

You may have missed the mark, but your theory that prices would drop substantially from the original $2,099 list definitely came true.
