That's based on the fact that, lately, all new and significantly better devices from Canon have all been doubled in actual price versus their comparable predecessors.

Not true. The quality improves, but the release prices stay about the same. In fact, after inflation, they drop. Examples:

5D: $3,300 (2005) = $3,890 in 2012$
5D3: $3,500 (2012)

24-70: $2,100 (2002) = $2,480 in 2012$
24-70 II: $2,300 (2012)

That's all well and good, but Nikon has managed to maintain their prices and in some cases lower them....on newer and SIGNIFICANTLY better devices.
