I disagree.

Having used a 5d2 regularly, waiting for the 3 to come out and purchase, I bought a 5d2 after the £3000 price tag announced. I was expecting it to be between £2000-2200.

I recently managed to find a UK company that would sell me a 5d3 for £2100- That's £600 more than what I paid for the 2.

For this I get:

100% magnification
6fps (now I can shoot airshows!)
AF that's from this century, and pretty darn good too
Proper weather sealing
Dual card slots
A true to ratio screen

To me, that is £600 very well spent. The AF alone is worth it.
