Well I've had a couple of e-mails from a UK seller that they have the 5D MkIII in a sale, they've knocked a whopping 95p off :P.

My Refurb thru Canon CLP arrived 15 minutes ago.  $1407.  I put a battery in it (same as my 7D battery), and used EOS count to check the actuations.  379 shutter actuations.  The battery is dated 12/2011.  No marks or other signs its ever been used, except for the refurb packaging.
I'll be checking it out this afternoon.

Via Canon Price Watch: The Canon Direct Store 20% off refurbished coupon has returned: D2B712 (until July 11th).

I just checked, the 5DII is in stock as of a few minutes ago. $1,407. No need to scrounge up a dead camera to trade in.

The 5D2 is excluded from the 20% code promotion. That is why it is still in stock.

Just got mine today as well. I had to pay tax and shipping, so the total was closer to $1580 for me. Mine has signs of having been mounted on a tripod previously, but otherwise I cannot tell it's a refurb. Will check the shutter count later today :)

This is my 2nd 5D 2, after returning my 5D MK III, and selling my D800.  For the price, its a very good deal.
I checked the viewfinder dor dust - none, then a f/22 sky shot, no dust on sensor and finally a black frame.  Its a bit better than my first 5D 2, with no red hotspots at all.  If you crank up the exposure by 3-4 ev, the banding becomes visible, but for correctly exposed images, its fine.
 
I also put on my 40mm and snapped three or 4 shots at f/8.  Everything was in sharp focus.  i'll do some checking wide open later, to see if it can benefit from AFMA, and will do all my lenses over the next few days.
Here is a severe crop of a rose in my yard.  I pulled the exposure down 0.44 ev.  The other images were also slightly over exposed, but not clipped. That 40mm lens picks up fine detail very well.

I just called the CLP number. She told me that I still need an old broken canon camera. I asked the price point for 5d II. She said it was $1584 that included the state sales tax! Is this a good deal or what? Compare to B&H, it saves $500.
 :D

I noticed that B&H has dropped the 5D3 price from $3499 to $3484.  Its a start I guess...   :-\

The $100 price drop is not worth it. Assuming the new entry level full frame to replace the 5D Mark II is priced the same, why not buy new technology over this camera that is starting to age.  I am making certain assumptions but I think it may pay to have a little more patience over the impending release of this rumored full frame.
