hope for Canon the price will be not higher then 2700.00 USD, then they will sell good. Kit with the 24-105 maybe 3500.00USD.

dont think it'll be as low as $2700.  I'd probably $3000 for the body and then $3500 with the kit lens.  Seems a sensible guess I'd say.

I don't think so. The kit lens normally is around $1100 and when bought with the 5D it comes down to $800. I don't think they'll give more than the $300 discount.

Eg. $2700 body = $3500 kit OR $3000 body = $3800 kit

I think I will go for TBA, even though I voted 3300.00. Can I find out from you guys, is the price on B&H consider the lowest available? I.e 2,399 for 5dmk2 on B&H consider street price or somewhere else is lower.

The MSRP of the most anxiously awaited Camera of all time...  I'm going with $3500, do I win one if I'm right?

European prices tend to be higher than elsewhere, that is the same amount as in the USA but with the US$ swapped for a € instead, so 3 grand over here (for body only) will price all of the 'enthusiasts' out of the market. It has to be priced in euros no more than 1 grand above current 'new' 5D MKii prices  that puts a ceiling of 2700.

I don't know where the rumor of $3500 really came from. Even keeping in mind that the 5D3 is going to be incredible, charging nearly double is asking too much and would probably take many potential 5D3 buyers out the market.

$2700 - $3000 (max)

Canon has recently charged a bit less for bodies than we have estimated for the 1dx and the 5dii, both were priced less than their replacements. the economy is weak, the last they want to do is overprice the 5d3 when the 5d2 is about 95% capable of the what the rumor'ed 5d3 is anyway.... and the 5d2 will probably goto $1999.00 soon, so $3500 would be a stretch.

$3500 may be too much for you, but what makes you think it's too much for everyone else?  Sure I'd love the thing to be $1500, but I'm trying to be realistic.  The first batch is going to sell before it even hits the shelves, why should Canon not take advantage of that?  Out of the kindness of it's multi-billion-dollar heart?

My point exactly. I'd love to see it at $2,700 ($3,500 w/ 24-105), but I'm afraid it will be $3,000. In the latter case, what we take from the $3,500 rumor? If it only was $3,500 for the kit w/ NEW 50 1.4  ;D

$2700 makes sense ($3500 with kit).

I have been doing a lot of research on pricing over the last several months, as this will be my first full-frame camera (I was considering the markII until I realized markIII was coming).  I have to admit that when I started I did not even know what "gray market" was.  I know that B&H will match any price that is listed from a canon authorized seller and their customer service is amazing, so I won't buy anywhere else personally.  I found that every price under what they offered was either gray market or used.  I don't know if this helps, but it was helpful for me  ::)

Wouldn't a better poll be "At which price might you purchase a 5D3 within the next 6 months?" 

If they could sell it with kit lens for $3500 Canuck Bucks or less, I could probably swing it this year. If not, it's either get another Rebel or sit the purchase out for at least another 12 months...
Don't take my advice. Don't even take my advice not to take my advice.
