    True...I keep thinking of it lol. But luckily not to the point where I can't sleep every night and tossing and turning till I buy the cam.
    hehe
    by the time price has dropped significantly, it means that new model will be released, then you will wait for the new model to compare, the cycle never ends. hehe everyone goes through this....

    Been there, done that lar... hehe. 5DII should be upgrade-proof for quite some time....21MP should be enuff. (haha)

    Seriously look at the original 5D classic....still going strong after more than 3 years! Before anyone tells me "go buy 5D", well I've more or less made up my mind on 5DII liao...the poison is too strong. I guess its just a matter of how long I can resist...

    Haha, CS is the absolute worst place to be persuaded not to buy anything. If it helps, there's likely a significant initial price drop within the first six months - happened with most of Canon's new releases. Might wanna wait a just a little while more. i got my 5D when it went just under $6k, a few months after release.
