Canon won't start discounting this camera until their inventory starts piling up.

They are definitely going to be under pressure to bring this thing down to $2999 once the initial early adopter frenzy is over. Feature vs. feature the D800 at $500 cheaper is hard to resist if you don't have a big glass investment. An argument could be made that the D800 should be priced higher than the the 5D3.

To pretend they aren't going to be super sensitive to D800 sales vs. 5D3 sales numbers is a fantasy.

I'd buy it today @2999. I feel like I'm getting taken to the cleaners at @3499 with the D800 where it is.

Maybe they will start discounting when the new 28-70 II comes out. Let's hope so because I want that as well, and it is similarly over-priced.

Of course let it be known I did buy the 70-200 II IS at @2499 (over-priced?) and haven't lost a day of sleep over that one, awesome lens.
