The Canon 5D Mark II has not even begun to ship yet and we’re already seeing the original Canon 5D take a hit in price. Just last week, I noticed the Canon 5D + EF 24-105mm L lens was around $2700 for the kit at Amazon. Now, the original 5D combo is available for $2590. Also, the Canon 5D body is now selling for under $2k.
So, if you can’t swing a 5D Mark II, you might consider the original 5D at a substantial discount. Personally, I’m drooling over the kit’s price point right now.
