Canon 5D MII discontinued?

My thoughts exactly on 5D MKII vs MKIII.
I have heard it will be continued for a while due to MKIII being more the D800.
But I would not wait and did pick up a Canon Refurb for $1750 with 400 clicks.
Thats half the MK III price and since I dont do action sports types - no way I will do a MKIII {not untill the MKIV anyway}. The CLP makes it 20% less.
Your best deals are always the older model and I think the faster and better AF is more Canon marketing hype than actual. Unless you can quote exact data in seconds to focus and # of OOF images with exact same settings lenes ... you really dont know.

The MkIII has gone down all that well in the U.K.
So the price of the MkII has rebounded and gone up slightly!

The MkII is an excellent camera and I did what El Pic described, I picked up a refurb camera from Canon as my second MkII, the 'just-in-case' body. With Nikon out there with a 36mp camera, Canon can't be too far behind; it may be until next year that they announce, but in the meantime I have the security and use of a second camera at a decent price.
