...Once the initial buyer rush is over, expect the camera to be included in Canon Rebate deals...

The frequency and length of rebates deals has grown significantly in the last few years. I would be willing to bet that the 6D will be on a spring or early summer rebate program.

I would also be willing to bet that the price drop for the 6D will be nowhere near as significant as that of the 5DIII. There are competitive reasons why the market is driving down the cost of the 5DIII (the D800). The D600 and the 6D are already competitively priced, so there won't be the same pressure.

The price of the 6D is not going to go up between now and July, so you can safely wait until May to see what happens. I wouldn't wait any longer because babies aren't always as accommodating in their schedules.

Past performance not indicative of future results, but here's the trend for the 5DmkIII since being available last summer (scroll down to see graph):

And here's the same thing for the 5DmkII (ditto):

http://www.canonpricewatch.com/product/02699/Canon-EOS-5D-Mark-II-price.html

Er...what's the deal with the 5D II dropping to $0 for...maybe a week...in the middle of November? Was Canon simply giving them away for free? And how in the world could I have missed that incredible opportunity!!!  ??? :o ::)
I missed it then too, and would miss it once again, for I can't find the mid-November drop to $0 you found on the website...  :P

The chart has changed since. It clearly showed a huge drop in price down to $0 for what looked like about a weeks time. The chart is back to "normal" now, it seems. :P

Well if it's anything like the 5D3 it'll be $600 by June.

Well, it looks like the 6D has already dropped by $130 to $1969.

With the Nikon D600 going for ~$1700 now, I expect the 6D to drop to that range in a couple months.

If we consider the recent election in Japan with the LDP winning who placed Shinzo Abe as Prime Minister who in turn has publicly stated his primary goal of driving inflation domestically by printing unlimited money, we can reasonably conclude that we should see price depreciation of goods from Japan (which includes the 6D).  How successful this will be remains a question, but it is because of this news that I bought a used 5D mark II for now and will revisit the 6D pricing in about 6 months.  I expect the price to fall also since I did not see the 6D out of stock after release due to too many pre-orders.  Anyways, I support the wait and see approach.

I hope they both drop to around 1500 or less.  It will be easier for me to buy one.

Shipped from Hong Kong and you have to add US$209 for warranty, seems fishy. Thanks though.

That is a warranty that would be in addition to whatever warranty comes with the camera from Canon. I am not sure what it means by WG version, though. I guess it does seem kinda fishy considering no one else on ebay can come close to that price.

Bought it on Amazon for about US$1880, after promotions. Only thing is it's temporarily out of stock, but I can wait.  It was 1,999 last night plus a 6% reward as an Amazon credit in about a month.  Good deal.
