The price is not out of line

Back in 2005, my first 5D (Classic) was a little over $3000. The price dropped, and my second body was $1800 just a few years later.

In light of the improvements in the 5D3, and inflation over 7 years, I don't view a $3500 introductory price as outrageous. It will drop.

I guess I totally missed it. I always thought the 5D line was about affordable FF. Of course bouncing the price back up to $3500 seemed like a step in the wrong direction.
