Well I thought it was overpriced and waited until it dropped $600 bucks before buying.  That didn't take long.  I was interviewed, and then had a conversation with a professional newspaper photographer (circulation 1,000,000) who was using a Mark II and he thought the III was over-priced so he is waiting still.  I was hoping that Canon learned their lesson but I don't think so.  The pricing of the 6D and new lenses seems out of whack.  I'd just as soon wait for the prices to come down before buying.  I'd love to see the sales curve of the 5DIII.  I'm sure it was OK to start with, but after 2 months it must have dropped like a stone.  A couple of months after that and we are seeing $2,800.  The lesson is clear.  Wait 6 months or pay the early adopter 20% mark-up
