How so? Canon 6D and Nikon D600 simply follow the formula that Sony A850 did four years ago. The price has pretty much stayed put. However, more important is the price of lenses themselves.

Exactly - an FF system is now more affordable because so many already have Canon/Nikon lenses, flashes, etc.  (Actually, if you include the free or rebated accessory incentives of Dec 2012, prices of the 5DII and D600 dropped below A850 levels.)

Chances are, their replacement won't be starting at that price point. Lower sale prices are not indicative of incoming pricing strategy. It is a marketing strategy. I suspect that manufacturers see camera bodies merely as the goose that lays golden egg anyway.
