Where are you seeing price drops? I'm not really seeing it.

Thanks.

G'day everyone, this is not a response about lens prices but one about discounted camera prices, so I hope that it's OK to post here.
For quite some time, I've been looking for a replacement for my Canon 40D with the aim of demoting my primary camera (a Canon 6D) to back-up and buying a Canon 5DIV to use as my primary camera. Over here in the ex penal colony, we're being bombarded with Easter discount offers and today I received a special offer of 20% off all Canon full-frame cameras. When I checked the retailer's website it was showing 20% off their already-discounted price. I don't know what you blokes over in the UK expect to pay for a Canon 5DIV but, with encouragement from the Director of Home Affairs, I bought one for about GBP1,450. The icing on top is that, in Australia, Canon offers a superior warranty of five years.

Only wish I had an airshow at which I could use it. Most events here in Oz have been cancelled and I am about to cancel our USA flights for Oshkosh 2020. :sad: Maybe next year...

Hope you are all OK and coping with the restrictions on movement and assembly. Stay safe.
Cheers,

George

Melbourne, Australia.
