Switching over from Nikon Interested In buying a new Canon 5D MKII($1529.00) either body only or with 24-105 lens(2399.00).
I see prices on body only seem to be coming down a bit but holding steady on body & lens kit!
Do we think we will see any large price drops in the U.S. market and how long should I hold out?
Thanks In Advance
I think you're basically right on regarding the body, but I don't think you'll see the kit drop any more either.
Don't worry about the "old technology" ... its a great camera.
You can get the body for $1529ish, and the lens for $869ish... means the kit price should be just under $2400, and thats what you're seeing.
Folks will tell you spend on newer... but a healthy step behind the bleeding edge.... is much cheaper.
Unlike a computer, where a baby step behind bleeding edge is a good price and also offers some degree of non-obsolescence, the camera bodies wont cease to run, or run on newer software, they'll still do fine, they'll still take fantastic pictures limited only by your imagination, creativity and experience.
