Is the drop due to the currency exchange, superior cameras from other brands, or is the 5D IV coming?

What you paid for the 5DIII from Canada is less than the "new low" price in the US.

P.S. The price probably won't drop in Canada.

Not selling enough cameras...not hitting their revenue projections. If they were selling like hotcakes, you would never see a drop.

Nah. That's what everyone said at the time the 5D3 was released. One even predicted the demise of Canon as a company.

There are many reasons to reduce prices on cameras. Some cameras, for example the 5D3 and 6D, have long ago paid back their R&D costs and met their profit targets.

In 8 months, the Yen has fallen 15 % against the US dollar. So a lower dollar sale price in the USA returns the same quantity of Yen back to Japan. Hence they drop the price to boost sales and rake in more profit, at no loss of Yen to the company.

The 5Ds is noisy and slow, so it is more of a niche camera and not a general replacement for the 5D III.

I agree the 5Ds is a niche camera, but how can it be noisy and slow? It has neither speakers nor wheels.

I shoots wedding and Portraits , 5 Fps is more then I ever needed. I never shoot above 6400 ISO.
Between 22 MP and over 50MP. the one with higher MP is always on my priority listed.

+1

Not even Canon's immune from the drop in camera sales. Plus the full frame cameras are a gateway to additional lens sales.

Are you happy with the 7D II at high ISO compared to the 5D III at the same ISO?

I own both camera and both camera will get the job done.

Long ago I used to shoot with Hasselblad film camera.
I chose Medium format over 35mm camera because is images quality and the
ability to crop afterward.

Canon USA responds to the craziness of import pricing recently. This is good for the consumer.

Actually, there is no mystery to the price drop. Once the new model was confirmed to be on the way, Canon is helping grease the pipeline to clear out the 5Diii in preparation for the new model. The same thing happened to the 5Dii when the III became available.

There is an even better deal at B&H than the thread mentioned. There is a combo body and printer deal. After mail in rebate, you get both for $2249.

Even if you don't need a printer, that is a great price right now for a new USA warranty 5DIII. http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/986049-REG/canon_eos_5d_mark_iii.html

Really, for a 3yr old camera. I would guess they are clearing stock before they announce a 5DIV and the 5Ds is released.

I disagree, I'm sure is due to the Mark 4 coming in just few months, Canon got their money on the 5D3 long time ago.
