In the recent post http://www.canonrumors.com/2012/03/5d-mark-iii-availability-update
there is a rumor that prices will be regulated.
"It’s also rumored Canon will regulate the price of this camera starting in May. Which means, there will be a certain price point that a retailer cannot go below to sell the camera. This sort of regulation will also make such things advertising “free” things to bundle with the camera not allowed. This is good for retailers if true."
Does anyone think the prices could rise come May? Is this some scare tactic by Canon to spook the channel and perpetuate sales? Or does Canon want to maintain the MSRP as long as possible to avoid devaluing the new offering?
