Yes & Yes.
Mk3 seems like a great camera for 2700. Seems like an ok camera for 3k. But asking 3500 is just too much. Coupling it with a grip and a new 24-70 it borders to ridiculous.
I've been with Canon since the 650 came out, now that was a revolution. I wont be selling any equipment in the near future but i will have a look at d800 as soon as it comes out. I wont touch the mk3.
Its not only the jacked up price, its mainly the stance of Canon as a company. Too few of ideas/innovation , too slow on implementation, too obvious on nerfing down products (5d series), too self assured of their userbase loyalty.
ps. Canon should consider themselves lucky that Nikon went the stupid way with d800. Cant imagine what would happen with a 3k$ 28/5 or 24/6 d800 instead of 36/4 vs the $3.5k 5Dmk3...
