It doesn't have to be less than the D7100 to compete with it- I'm guessing $1400 so it's "within reach" of the D7100 and can be kitted with a couple of lenses for under $1800.

Looks like I was high by 100 or so- at least comparing the t5i body only to the kit, it's 750 vs. 1099, which would put body-only about $1300.

It's in Canadian $: converted to USD it should be $1200, so the same more or less of the D7100. :-)

$100 off...soon will drop to $1500;)

The price in the picture is the kit price with lens, and even that changed to the latest [cr] - obviously Canon lowered the price in the meantime to counter Nikon...

.... but the pre-order price is released and THE RESULTS ARE IN (this is also in the first post):

25% of you were correct
12% guessed too low
63% guessed too high
- don't you Nikon trolls trust our favorite brand to be reasonable :-p ?

 I really hope the price for us in Australia are close to these often even when the exchange rate is good Aussie prices do not reflect it. Ok toughen up here, I will look and hold the camera when able and probably buy close to Christmas.

Today, my favourite shop in Munich sent me an "special" pre-offer: 1399.- 70D body only.....

 :o

This was the same with the 6d, offical list price €2099, the first offers were €2199 ... I guess due to the smaller market in Germany the shops that really get the cameras first (i.e. not some online discounters) try to make some quick €€€ from people who are desperate for the latest stuff. And then of course there's the weaker € vs. $ vs yen.

Good for me: As a Magic Lantern fan, I'd never buy a new body anyway and wait 6month+ for a ml release, that's why I'm also not that pressed to buy a 6d and can wait for the price to drop some more. As far as I can see it, the 70d will be no competition at all to ff regarding iso noise.

but it won't be a round number, 1399 is a damn good guess.

To not follow every marketing trick I used round numbers, so choose $1400 for $1399 and so on...

Hey Marsu, that wasn’t a criticism of the poll options I was referring to CanNotYet’s post, my guess like most was $1300....... and I'm sticking to it  ;D

Out of curiosity, how much of that has to do with taxes built into the price (VAT, etc.).  In the U.S. the price usually, depending upon state, 7% to 9% added to it (which is why I often buy from B&H because they don't collect Texas sales tax saving me 8.25%).

VAT here is 20% and over Europe it is similar to that, maybe plus or minus 5%. On European prices VAT is always included on the website unless it specifies it.

It is a bit odd though how they price it. Looking at the B&H website the 5DIII costs pretty much the same as over here whereas the 6D is a lot cheaper in the US. The 5DII and 40D I know where a fair bit cheaper in the US. Worst is the 200-400 where the price difference is so big that it would pay for a trip to New York including flights, hotel and dinners for a weekend and it would still come out slightly cheaper
