I'm not looking for a debate, there are no "correct" answers when you ask how people feel.

I'm just curious what people's feelings are now that 5D III prices seemed to have adjusted down to the market.

Do you feel that Canon knew that $3495 was above market, but figured that initially early adopters would purchase as many as they could make, so they could get an extra $500-$700 out of them?

Do you feel that in the long run, the temporary extra revenue from the higher price will offset the long term loss of sales due to people switching brands?

For those who switched to Nikon, would you still have switched if the 5D III started out under $3000?
