The indicative price of the 1Ds Mark III on Canon USA is still $6999.00. It remains to be seen whether there will be any difference between the announced 1D X price and actual purchase prices. Meanwhile, the 5D Mark II comes in at $2,499.00, despite the also significantly lower real-world price (and the rebate too). I don't see enough information to make any judgments about how a 5D replacement (if and when it's coming) will balance against the 1D X in pricing, but I've said before that I expect it to at least keep pace with inflation. That said, what that actually would represent is unknown (inflation has been pretty low for the entire period the 5D Mark II has been released) and I don't see Canon making a move to throw 5D Mark II cameras into the bargain bin just because a new camera will come along that may be close to the same price.
