Although their behavior is frustrating (releasing a $3500 body, then dropping the price significantly several months later, discontinuing 24-70mm and replacing it with a far more expensive 24-70mm II only to have a rumored 24-70mm IS seem likely, at which point the 24-70mm II may drop in price)
Might want to re-check that rumor, as its already been updated, and there is no 24-70 f/2.8 IS on the way.

Price the product competitively upon release and it will sell well without much fluctuation. D800 is a great example of this, as I don't believe we've seen ANY deals since it's original release.

um. it's actually because they're cracking down on unauthorized discounts. and they will no longer sell parts anymore.
Yep, and it wouldn't surprise me if Canon goes that way in the near future as well...they've already cracked down on US shipping to Canada.
