[Rumor] EOS 5D Mark II May See A Substantial Price Drop Next Week (down to $1699)

Not the usual rumor about specs and features, but about an upcoming concrete price drop for the EOS 5D Mark II. Quoting Canon Rumors, the 5D2 could go down to $1699:

I’ve been told by a couple of people that the Canon EOS 5D Mark II will see a big price drop this coming week in the USA, we should see it in other countries as well. We’re told the new price will be $1699 USD for the body until they’re all gone, which won’t take too long I don’t think.

[Rumor] More Canon High Megapixel DSLR Tidbits (1Dx derived body)

A new rumor about Canon’s high resolution DSLR (46MP are rumored) showed up at NL.

In an update to the high MP info, we’re told [...] that a camera will eventually appear in a 1D X derived body, in the same way as the 1D C. The information said that the actual designation was not known, but it would essentially be a ’1 series’. There was also a warning that there would be a long wait between any ‘preview’ and any cameras [...] being annouced and subsequently shipping.

Hope this is not made using a special firmware, as Canon did with the EOS 1D-C.
