Canon Announces Price Reduction for 5D Mk II

Hot on the heels of the announcement of the new Canon 5d Mk III, Canon has reduced the price of the 5D Mk II by $300 to $2199. This move matches Nikon’s recent price reduction for the D700. Both cameras have the same retail price now. I’m not sure I would pay that much for a camera with an 8 year-old autofocus system (which is getting more dated by the day) but the D700 doesn’t have video capabilities. Ken Rockwell has a breakdown of the two cameras here. Either way, it’s a great time to move to a full frame camera if you are still shooting on a crop.
