Any word about how big of a rebate?

And does the end date of the USA rebate suggest that any DSLR announcement will more likely happen after?

I wasn't sent the literature for the rebate. However, if Canada is $1999, I'd expect the US to come in around the same.

I suddenly worry for myself that a 5DIII might be coming before a 1Ds...

If tomorrow we see a 5DIII, I hope the 1Ds is right beside it.

Don't you think it's time to set the recommendation for the 5D at the camera section to "hold"? Imho it's pretty obvious that there is something going in the FF area in the next six months.  Or do you have some kind of a "system" when you change the status?

Regards, Dave

1,999.00 is a great deal for a brand new 5D II.  It might just get some of us to buy it when it hit the USA.  I sure hope this is true :)

In Germany we have not heard of big rebates yet, but the price is continuesly dropping since July. You can follow this trend here:

The current price is 1750 Euro, which equals about 2300 USD (incl. 19% VAT)..

in the uk, it appears the 5dmkii is at it's lowest price yet (according to camerapricebuster.co.uk).

it's currently sitting at £1549.90 ($2427.45).  This appears to have dropped by about £200 ($313.24) over the past couple of months.  who knows why!

The UK has seem price drops on both the 7D and the 5D Mark II.

5D Mark II body only :-
Jacobs Digital £1549.90
Jessops.com Collect At Store Service £1549.95

7D Body only :-
Jacobs Digital £1088.00
Jessops.com Collect At Store Service £1088.00

Both these retailers are on the high street and don't usually do big reductions like this often.

curious how the 2nd hand market will react to the price drop. Currently monitoring ebay and my local u.s. craigslist area, they roughly are going for around ~$2100 or about $400 off a new for a 5d2 body with under 8k actuations.
