I was really hoping to see a lower priced Full Frame by September.  I am beginning to have my doubts.  With the 1DX and the 5D III selling well (dispite the price  >:(), plus the recent firmware upgrade to the 7D I'm afraid we may have to wait until next year for a 7D II, 70D or 3D.  I got about $2,400 hundred but away now, and am socking away $150 a month so if they continue to "hold out" I will be in 5D III territory in the late Spring.  I'm hitting the limits of my 50D (resolution, low light performance, focusing) so I'm looking to upgrade.  Good camera but I do so want to upgrade.  A 5D II is 4 year old technology and a 7D is 3 years old.  I'll continue to be patient
Beach camera has the 5d Mark iii for $2800 today on ebay. That's pretty close to what you have saved up.

That'd be a really crappy deal if you got a mark II. I got in on one of the Beach Camera Ebay deals and got my 5D Mark II and 24-105 for $2400.

5D MK II with 24-105 L IS for $2400 is a great and believable deal.
B&H has the 5D MK III with 24-105 L IS for $4098, which is also a really neat deal coz one is basically getting the 24-105 L IS lens for just $600
