    5d Mk3 release - How does this affect Mk2 Prices?



    I see the rumours about the 5d mk3 suggest it will be available later this year, does anyone have any idea what this will do to Mk 2 prices.





    I'm thinking of an upgrade from my mk1, Clearly the residual value of mine will drop a bit when the new one comes out, but 2 questions that you lot may have previous experience of;





    Is the Mk3 likely to be a lot more expensive than the current Mk2


    Will retailers drop the prices to clear stocks of the current Mk2





    The above, plus the second hand value of mine will help me deide to take the plunge now, or wait for the new one, so does anyone know what happened whith previous releases?????

    Thanks guys, I heard slightly differnt


    "The 5D Mark III will come at least 6 months after the 1Ds replacement. If a 1Ds is announced in April, that would put a 5D3 in the Oct 2011 timeframe. That would be just over 3 years since the 5D Mark II"


    Hmmmm, I

    I just checked sauces and they only expect tomato and BBQ sauces because one week from Friday is April Fools day.


    I have been toying with the idea of getting a 5Dmk ll for a while now and the prices here of the new ones on the good old "grey" market have all gone up about nearly $200 over the last week or so. Stock of the 5Dmk ll is also very hard to get at the momemt, with just about all retailers saying they have some arriving soon. I don

    It will be two years and 2000 more. I said it now you do not have an excuse.


    You should go back and look at the canon rumors website 1Ds IV thread. They have been predicting it
