Yeah I'm kinda fed up with people complaining about prices too, but I'm not going to tell them to shut up. I've spent the last month trying to tell people that $3500 was accurate and what I noticed was, people didn't really use reason. It boiled down to this:
1) Anyone that couldn't/wouldn't pay $3500 didn't want it to be $3500
2) Anyone that could/would pay $3500 didn't care
It sucks when you really want something and it's released and not in your price range, but come on it's not like no one saw this coming! The price has been up for a month, and it's interesting that people welcomed and accepted every single spec except the price. "Oh well the rest of the list looks good but the guy must have misheard/misread the price." or "that's gotta be the kit price"--- even though that would put the body within a couple hundred bucks of the 5DII, which would be foolish. I even saw someone suggest $3500 was the price with the 24-70 II, which seriously made me laugh so hard I was almost crying.
