What is the cheapest official new price on the net.
In Belgium the price is 3000 EURO. Is there a good webshop (reliable) where I can buy it for a better price?

A place in Monsey, NY called Profeel Marketing Inc. (an authorized Canon Dealer -- I looked it up!) has it on their eBay site (PMI Digital) for just $3,199.75.  Anyone ever dealt with them?

Canon's USA Authorized Dealer List:

If you get their address from Google, then find it... you can't do a street view, but satellite view shows it to be a nice house in a residential neighborhood.

What are your expectations for the price around the holidays, do you believe it will drop more? Do you think it will be affected by the performance of 6D?

Thanks for your guestimations :)

I predict a $150 rebate at the most and probably not until after the holidays. 

I don't see the 6D sales, good or bad, affecting 5D3 sales up or down.  These two cameras are too far apart, it would be like Rebels affecting 7D sales.  I'm sure Rebels affected 60D sales and 50D and 60D affected 7D sales.  There should be a body between this 6D and the 5D3.

Just my guess and the way I see it.

Well, in Canada the MSRP went quietly from $3800 to $3600 and in addition Canon Canada offers $100 discount. That, I guess, explains why some large retailers are selling this camera at $3400. Looking forward to holiday deals!

I agree that prices may be very good over the holidays.  However, surveys of Dealers that I've seen seem to indicate that they are not planning any big blowouts.  If sales are slow though, the price pressure will be on.

bit of recent price lowering pressure has now put the 5D MK III Body at £2456.99 with reputable UK sellers.

There's been another drop.  The kit can now be bought for $3,749.

This is exactly why I think those that don't Canon sales have been hurting, are wrong.  I've never seen rebates extended this long before either.  No one discounts their products if they are selling well.
