Here's why 5D2 price has dropped, BEWARE!

This is CRAZY, 5D2 + 24-105 f4 for $2799 or 5D2 for $1999. Is this a sign of Canon's... . . .

1. Manufacturing prowess in spite of the natural disasters in Thailand and Japan.

2. Plot to lure potential CLOSET 5D2 user from other brands(N,S,P,F,O) in hopes to fully abandon their current gear as soon as 5D3 is released.

3. Marketing department seeing huge profits potential due to Nikon/Sony's inability to manufacture ample supply of their competing products.

4. Banding, noise at low ISO, and inadequate AF is a bargain trade off for the price and consistent skin tone colors in an indoor lighting environment.

5. Correct implementation of their first TRUE 1080p(not 720p VCD quality) HDSLR in a FF chip instead of a crop sensor like the Nikon D90(out sold by 5D2 despite its cheap price).

6. 5D3 is coming soon.

7. Competition like D3X is too expensive for a marginal 3mp gain, D700 has no video, plastiky/waxiky skin tones and only 12mp, A900 has no video and its a Sony, A850 again no video and a Sony.

8. 5D2 SUCKS so bad that it created a HUGE stock pile of supply that the only way to get rid of it is to put them on sale. On top of that Most of these bodies in the stock pile got wet(tsunami)dropped(earth quake).
