The price of the 5D3 is coming down, I managed to get a 5D3 when it came out for the same price as a D800. Recently I have seen the 5D3 selling for less than a D800 although it has gone back up to being on a par with the D800 which is also come down in price as well.

5D3 should never have been priced above $3K.

Canon is missing an opportunity here. 6D should be around $1800, 5D3 around $2600, and a high res 3D(?) model, assuming it's not in a full size body, could be priced around $3500.

Canon still has an edge in glass but loyalty will be tested if they charge $4k+ for a high res camera while Nikon is offering 36mp for under $3K with a Sony sensor that allows for this kind of shadow recovery:
