    Sheesh, for that price I could have bought 2 7D's and a 24-105. I think I made out alright then. Guess I'll try to pick one of these up when the 5DIV comes out

    Pretty disappointing response to the D800, IMHO.

    Hope they still stock the 5DMkII...$3500 is a bit much for me to think about. Maybe the MkII's price will start to be discounted???

    I bought my Mk II new in December for $1,999. The price will most likely return to that, and Canon have said the Mk II will remain a current model.
