Should I wait or get the body only?

Scanning the "bundled" prices over the past month or so... the average body price seems to be ~$2600 if one apportions a certain percentage to the different items in the bundle. In this specific case from amazon for $3,299 (before the price went back up), one could allocate ~$700 for the L-lens...that brings the body price to ~$2600. Needless to say, we had a couple of weeks ago the body for even lower at $2500.

So if you pay $2999 for the body alone now...that's about $400 more :). Only you can make that call.

The deals are usually 1 day deals, and end when all the excess inventory is sold.  You have to be ready for the short sales and jump on the deal.  Even a 5 minute delay might see them all sold.

Yeah.

I hope we get something like this again. Otherwise, I'll just get new lenses for me :)

Cheers and thanks,

Eduardo.
