I tried reading tea leaves to divine the significance of this, alas, to no avail. B&H has dropped the price of the Canon 5D Mark II to a mere $1999.95, its lowest price ever. (Plus, note the freebies thrown in.) Does that mean B&H and some other purveyor are contending to see who can offer the lowest price? Does it mean the Canon 5D Mark III is closer than its rumored introduction at Photokina 2012 in September, and the Mark II is entering a closeout phase? Canonistas might have opinions; the tea leaves are silent.
But speaking of closeouts, the Canon S95, extremely popular during its brief lifetime, is on closeout, for $299.95. That's because it's been replaced by the $430 S100 that's out of stock virtually everywhere (unless you want to pay jacked-up prices). But there's nothing wrong with the S95. That's what the tea leaves said.
The elves at B&H tell me they also just received (today) their very first shipment of the brand spankin' new Nikon SB-910 Speedlight.
