5D MARK II Discontinued
It might drive more people to buy one now rather than put it off for later.
Depending on what you shoot and how tight the budget might be, I would think that a used 5D MkII would be a better investment compared to the original 5D.
Consider that the MkII has a larger display with far more pixels, ISO expands to 25600 (and very good even at 6400), better focusing system, and a number of other improvements.
