Re: this is why most expect $3999

Can't say for sure about the MKII, but the MKIIN whitepaper included the expected price, so this wasn't unprecedented for Canon.

Re Pitman Photo

When I am not buying from B&H, I use Pitman in Miami for my local purchases. They generally have very good prices.

Re the first post, I am on the waiting list (actually #1 or 2 I believe - as I was physically in the store and asked to be put on before they had a list and before I left, info was taken by the manager. They were laughing as they had just gotten a fax re it.) They know me as I have bought a lot from them also. I highly recommend them if you need a local dealer.

A subsequent conversation with one of their managers reveiled that the initial dealer orders had been canceled by Canon, but that only meant they had to resubmit them, and the internal waiting list was still in effect and I was still on it. (Might have had something to do with a new order number reflecting the correct price.) Apparenty they order X number of cameras and then distribute according to their orders. As of our conversation two days ago, the computer showed the retail price as $4,299. Of course that doesn't mean the price is etched in stone.

I agree

That startled me too. I hope that's right.

Actually the interesting part here is that it is shipping in 1-3
weeks...I thought we were still out by about 2 months.

maybe some new features?

What kind of announcement?

Any chance they are "adding" features along with the possible new price?

It might, which would be fantastic, but I'm guessing that since
Nikon didn't announce a D2hs replacement and they basically have no
competition, they'll do their best to get max profits from the
camera --> price going up. Who knows though...anything can happen.

Re: Interesting 1DIII Info

Lens price seems about right. Transmitter price is still way too high.

Yes, did you?

Ask for the price like it says, do something, instead of laying out a blanket remark! You will find out it says... $3999.00

Yes

I actually had clicked on the Request Price link and just got a blank page. Even if it had quoted 3999, their disclaimer on the MKIII page pasted below voids any price quote.

I wasn't making blanket statements or trying to be confrontational. I intend to buy a MKIII and would much rather pay 3999 than 4499, but given the fact that Canon has not set a price, no one can actually give a firm price.
