Although Canon lens prices have gone up this month, but camera body prices have no increased and seems to be going down. I have just found out that Echo Photo & Audio have dropped the price of the EOS 5D Mark II again. It is now selling at HK$18,900.
The previous lowest price I knew was HK$19,000 and for awhile, it went back up to HK$19,200. There are ample supply of the 5D Mark II in Hong Kong apparently, and this is probably the reason why the street price is going down. This is good news for people wanting to buy new camera body, it may offset the psychological effect of lens price increase partially at least.
