Re: Another over priced 5D III post.

I haven't followed the 5D3 prices but Canon must have priced it too high compared to similar Nikon and Sony models.

You get the same feeling (getting taken) when you buy something and a month or two later a newer model comes out with better features. How about driving that new car off the lot and seeing how much it's worth 2 months later compared to what you paid for it?

When the 7D first came out I had planned a trip to Death Valley and up Hwy 395 to Lake Tahoe and they were few and far between and I wanted one for the trip. I found one at a smaller camera store that was charging $100 over list and paid the extra $100 and have never regretted it because I wanted the camera. That was over 3 years ago or about $30/ year.
