Canon Rumors has mentioned a $700 savings for the 1DX from an eBay seller. Wonder if this is the start of lower prices for the 1DX, now that the 1DC is the most expensive 1D series camera? Perhaps sales for the 1DX have flattened and this is one way too boost sales? Has anyone purchased their 1DX from this outlet?

I didn't buy one from that reseller, but I did buy one from a real brick and mortar shop here in Shanghai for a little less than US$5700.  Now I'm sure taxes, CNY/USD/JPY exchange rates may have had some influence, but I can't believe it could amount to that much.  And I'm sure the dealer didn't sell to me at cost - being charitable to foreigners is not one of their strong suits.
