Well upper management is beginning to feel the heat around here, so they’ve decided to drop the 50D price with $100 and are now offering an additional $100 instant rebate through certain dealers. Check it out on B&H.
I’m not ashamed to admit this. Anyone who has some common sense knows that you don’t drop prices like that without any reason just a month after availability of a product.
Galbraith was also bugging me again earlier this week about the 5D Mark II, so I told him it would be available by the end of this month. Notice that I didn’t mention how many would be available though. But let me assure you that unless you are at the very top of the waiting lists, you had better count on availability by the end of February 2009.
And you didn’t get this from me, but if you do actually wait till early next year to get your 5D Mark II, you should expect to pay significantly less. Just look what happened to the 50D price. 😉
