How can you say that a $1,500 camera is “already pretty close in spec” to a $3,500 camera? That $2,000 price difference is a damned big spec if you ask me. And it has to buy you something, too. I’m guessing that that extra $2,000 will buy you a whole lot more camera.

where I live price is not considered a 'spec', and obviously I'm refering to the rumoured D600 specs referenced a little higher up in the thread. Those are definitely very close to the 5D3, although one cannot judge everything (e.g. build quality) from specs.

My point was that the $3500 price for the 5D3 is ridiculous if the $1500 D600 as described turns out to be true; lowering the 5D3 price a bit will not help in that case.
