Sorry, but when you're buying the equipment that most 5D Mark III's owners are, and like myself, who paid $3499, the differential is meaningless. $2599 vs $3499? Who cares? Not only that, I've been using it since early April and I bought it new, not refurbished. That's 8 months of use of it. Do you wait 10 years to buy a car just because the price comes down? How many people buy a brand new car and then 3 years later, go, "Dang that car company! That makes me so mad I paid $24,000 instead of $18,000!!"? This is ridiculous. Feel bad for hungry children in Africa, not people who paid $900 more for a DSLR in April.
