    are you talking about brand new or used set?
    if used set,i can see the price already plunge today and expected to plunge below $2k when the 5D3 is launched locally.

    Can wait 5 years. Price would be from 1.2 - 1.4

    As suggested, wait 5 years if you can. Otherwise wait at least 5 months when 5D3 hit the streets.

    5D3 is hitting the street end this month. Definitely 5D2 price will be affected.

    Forget about the Mk 2. Since you do not have any camera now, I suggest you do saving up over the next 2-3 months and go straight to the 5D III. This will save you from saying "Haiz I should have bought the newer version...." a couple of months later.

    If you die die need a FF cam now, just lookout for any used 5D classics in the resale section. This camera is not much different from 5DII, and I really mean NOT MUCH, based on my own usage. I have also sold 2 of my own 5D to professionals who sold their mark II for the classic and it came from their mouths (I am not 1 though). If you want to do video, renting or buying a dedicated video camera will be a better choice. Frankly spending over 2k on the 5DII at this current juncture MAY not be a really good choice, as it is widely considered to be still overpriced in the resale market.
