Interesting that the ones who can't afford the camera seem to be the ones who have the strongest business advice for Canon.
I'm a non-pro that's been posting in the BH and Amazon threads like many many others that can't currently buy this camera (I've ordered, not in stock). Obscure shops may have a couple in stock briefly, but the big retailers like BH and Amazon -- good luck. You can go right now and will have to wait 1-2 months according to their website for body-only.
I've done pretty well in business (on a small business scale). I own a 7D, several primes, 2 L lenses, 2x583EX2's, Elinchrom 500W strobes, and now am buying the 5D3. But you know what? Still my coffee set up costs more than my photo gear put together. And as for business advice for Canon? Don't have any -- they seem to be doing great. Since all indications are that the 5D3 is better than the 5D2, it's going to be a pretty fantastic camera. 3.5K is reasonable.
whether or not you can afford it is irrelevant. people can still understand business models without tons of cash in their pockets.
