Indeed, but I'd be amazed if the MkII is still being made.

I wasn't expecting much so I think the new camera is pretty nice. The joystick is the best bit. Having only just bought a Mark II I'm not too bothered really, but if I was in the market for a Mark III, I would only really have been disappointed that they didn't make both card slots UHS-II, and didn't manage 60fps 4K.

I think keeping the Mark II on sale is a good move. In the future, they need to make regular incremental improvements to stop the expectation bandwagon.
