Nick49: I paid £1800 or thereabouts for the mark II. 4 years later and a 35% ish mark up? Canon must think the mark II was underpriced. This is making up for that.
1 Look at what was your GBP worth then and compae it with what it is worth now.
2. Much of value of the camera is in the value of the sensor. And much of value of the sensor is ( besides obvious megapixels) in its noise rating, sensitivity and colour depth ( bit resolution). Considerably imroved sensor can easily "lift" camera value.
Let's wait for the real tests.
For now, mkIII seems to be everything I expected - modernised mkII with improved sensor.
