And of course, for poor bastards like myself who live in a country whose currency has collapsed in recent years, the 5D3 will cost two or three times what the 5D2 cost here originally.   So, stop complaining  ;)

Or if you live in a country like Norway, where the Krone is very strong, but we just REALLY like high prices nonetheless :P

Interesting post on that "other brand" rumors site. They have a price list that shows the new Nikon D800 cost to dealers at $2,699.96 U.S. and the MSRP at $2,999.95. 

I would expect the 5DIII to sell for essentially the same price as the D800. If Canon offers similar pricing margins for their dealers, I wouldn't expect to see much of a discount.

Just took a look at netonnet.no . For the 5d2 price there,  you can probably take a flight down to Germany, buy a 5D2 and go back and have some money remaining in the pocket...  :o

Canon typically is able to undercut nikon prices by a couple of hundred dollars due to their lower cost of production.  The 5D MK II came in at $200 under the D700, the 60D came in at less than the D7000, the 7D sold for less than the D300S.

The only time I've seen a suggestion that turns this around is Canons estimated price of $6800 for the D1X versus $6000 for the Nikon D4  The actual price is not yet set, so we have to wait.  I asked my local dealer 5 days ago, and he only hinted that prices will be competitive and that orders were placed for both models a week before.
