While sitting at my desk yesterday, I came across the "sale" at best buy. I was shocked to come across it, especially with the talk about the 5d3 being around the corner and me thinking - should I just buy it now, or wait. Only one store in the Miami area listed 5d2's in stock. . . . I quickly called a friend at Adorama to find out if he could match it. He laughed and said "no way". He thought I was bluffing and said, if they are selling it at that price, i'm going to best buy to pick up a few. So, i printed out the internet price, drove to the store, and there was one in the back. It rang up at $2499.00 + Tax with no indication of the sale. I showed them the online price, they didn't hesitate, and I walked out. Happy new owner of a 5d2 now.
As for the Aussie Canon website. I could believe its feasible that canon could inadvertently create a 2nd webpage - but to also call it a 6d which has been rumored as a possible new name? Thats perhaps a little more than pure coincidence. I gotta say, it shows something is up. Only time will tell.
