This price "change" means absolutely nothing, other than that they have bodies in stock. It is a very common practice for the price to rise when Amazon does not have it in stock. Often times the higher price you see listed is not from Amazon itself but from one of the "featured merchants" in Amazon Marketplace. As soon as Amazon gets the stuff in stock the price magically falls. This happens especially on items that are having a sale on: when they sell out, the price goes up to the list price, but when they get more stock the price falls to the sales price.

Now you see them selling the 5D3 for $3200 or less, that's the time to get excited.
