A new 5D II for $1,699 is a steal, and the 5D III should be down to $3,000 most everywhere in the next couple of months. If you search daily, (or check back here and at the digital picture) they notify you of price drops. Numerous times the 5D III has sold for $3,000, and that fire sale adorama had on their ebay store saw them go for $2,749 (almost made me buy).
Totally... The 5D2 is a steal at $1,699. And you can already get it RETAIL for less than $2,000. The 5D2 is an AWESOME camera even with its age...
I hope the 5D3 will be $2,499 before next summer. Which I think is the price it should've been from the beginning. The superior ISO and AF is awesome, but not worth an extra $1,300.
It might not be worth it to you and some other people, but for me the 5d3 is vastly superior camera for everything, it's not a5d2 with more af points... that being said, the iq isn't really better. The 5d2 has great iq but it misses almost all of the great moments of movement the 5d3 missed less of. The reason I switched to the 1d isn't obvious on paper, but very obvious when using it. Best Canon ever made, and is sure to be a legend as well. If more people could afford it And see what it can do that others just can't.
