If you shop around and look for cash back, rebates, etc, you can get a decent deal now. I ordered one Monday from Crutchfield, looking for all the discounts I could muster. I ordered the kit with the 24-105. The price was $4,299, free shipping, no sales tax. I signed up with a crutchfield account which gave me 5% cash back ($215) to spend at Crutchfield at another time (does not expire). I also linked to Crutchfield through ebates which gets me 2.5% cash back ($107.50). Finally a made the purchase with my Amex card which doubles the warranty on the purchase and gives me another 1% reward ($43.00). In sum the camera kit will be $4,299-365.50= $3,933.50 and I have a two year warranty. Plus, the camera was in stock and according to UPS will be arriving tomorrow.
