In Germany the 5DII body is now at 1700€:

Look at the chart and you will know that this is still not the end. I am pretty sure that a replacement body is coming very soon.

If you search for "Canon 5D mark" at www.google.de, you can see "Canon 5D Mark III | Amazon.de" on the top of the results as an advertisement of amazon.de
But the link only shows other Canon EOS products.

zacuto (a firm selling high-end movie accessories) just introduced a discount on its EVF

IIRC, last time something like this happened was just a few days before the 60D was announced

which tells me there's probably a new FF with swivel screen coming very, very soon  ::)
or maybe it's just the camcorder that's broadly expected for nov 3rd

Just found a dealer in Toronto selling a 5D II with the 24-105 kit for $2799.00! That's a great deal considering that lens alone sells for around $1400 new.

http://www.photoprice.ca/product/02699/Canon-EOS-5D-Mark-II-price.html confirms the price drop, however; http://www.canonpricewatch.com/product/02699/Canon-EOS-5D-Mark-II-price.html shows a different story!

There must be something coming our way as I have never seen the price of this body drop anywhere below 2400CAD  :o.

I'm in the market for a FF and I'm curious about it's replacement and what it has to offer but if the price drops further to 1500 I may just pull the trigger on this bad boy ;)!

Update...just noticed the USA rebates begin September 25th - DOH!

I'm feeling the same way elmo. Though I doubt it will get to into $1500 price range. That's 7D territory.
Thought for someone looking at a 7D now, the choice is no so much driven by price anymore, but more on features, since the 7D and 5DmkII have different strengths.

that mean something new coming?

Not necessarily.  Most of the folks here are hoping it does, because it's been 3 years since Canon last announced a new Full Frame dSLR (3 years since 5D Mark II; 4 since the 1Ds Mark III).  There is a "Pro" announcement scheduled for today (see link, below), however we don't know which products will be announced.  Just have to wait and see.

I'm ready to go from 60d to 5D III.   I rented 5D II few weeks ago, I love it. That was my 1st time shooting with FF. Hope the new 5d III will be around $2500 - $3000.  ;D   

Thanks for info,  D

i heard rumors that this batch of 5D2 is affected by nuclear pollution from Japan.....  ;)

we should all wait and not buy, then Canon will introduce heavier rebates, so we can possibly buy a 5D2 for $1800?

I think you should detail where you "heard" those rumors because that would really affect all their business!
