As you’re sure to already know, Canon has recently brought forth their highly anticipated EOS 5D Mark III DSLR. This launch has been met with much praise as the camera itself has been in development for quite some time. Luckily, Canon justified this prolonged development period by equipping the Mark III with top of the line specs.
But, while having a top of the line camera like the Canon EOS 5D Mark III is a luxury that few would turn down, the $3,499 price tag is sure to be a turn off for some. Fortunately, if you can settle for the Mark III’s not-so-distant brother, the Mark II, there seems to be light at the end of the tunnel. Reports have just surfaced that, come March 4th, Canon will drop the price tag of the Mark II from $2,499 to $2,199 – netting consumers a savings of $300.
Of course, at the end of the day $300 isn’t a very substantial savings when there’s such a high price tag in question; but in this kind of economy any savings are unquestionably welcome. On that note, exactly what retailers will be the first to offer the Mark II at the lowered price we’ve yet to learn. But, once we do, you’ll be the first to know as the price cut is, again, expected to be effective no later than March 4th.[PhotoRumors]
