Why not wait for the MK III?

The fact is that until a new model is actually anounced, none of us knows what features it will have or when it will be available. The MKII may not be available until 2012, and may have only minor improvements over the MKI (like the 30D compared to the 20D). Or, Canon may decide to further move it up-market and push it out of your price range.

If the model currently available meets your needs and you can afford it, buy it. If it doesn't, don't buy it. But don't hold off just because there may be a better one coming.

(I've been tempted by the 5D, more so by the MKII, but I'm holding off for the MKIII - not because I hope it's better, but because the MKII doesn't really meet my needs given its cost.)
