I know everyone is eagerly anticipating a 5D update, but as I'm just starting out in photography, I've been debating whether to jump on a T3i or hold out for the next version (T4i?) considering Canon tends to announce the Rebel updates around this time of year. I've been following the T3i prices for a while, and it was hovering under $710 at a few places. Then I just noticed today that it has jumped to $799 pretty much everywhere (Amazon, Best Buy, Adorama, B&H). I'm curious why this might be the case. The Canon rebates were all extended to early March, so I don't think that is it. Is it typical for all retailers to increase prices in lockstep like that? Does this occur on other models as well? It seems like a big price increase considering it was released a year ago and they tend to release a new version annually. Is anyone aware of the T3i being in short supply? It's dropped from 1 to 5 on the Amazon DLR sales rank in only a week or so, behind the Nikon d5100 and Canon T2i and T3. Or is it possible that they may be getting ready to release a new version at a higher price point and are moving the T3i to be in line with that? Just throwing some ideas out there, but I'm curious what others think.
