ouch....if it was lower I might consider, but this is too much as far as I'm concerned...especially with 1d II's going for just over 2k.

No. The Nikon D2Xs was well over £3k on launch...

Canon have a habit of pricing their camera's high on launch, and then letting the price slide over the following few months.

Best to give it a couple of months and the price will drop. Also gives them time to iron out any software niggles.

How do Canon justify a price of $4000 versus £3050? $4000 equates to about £2045. With the extra £1000 one could fly to the US and shop in person! I suspect that those in the market for a body and some kit (lenses, etc.) will do just that.

Yep rgb seem to be heading the price war already.

£2500 makes more tempting, but as hobbs says, give it a while for the price to level off.

I understand that AJ Purdy are to sell the 1D MkIII for £2,200 after initial rush but will put an initial premium on of about £200 making it £2,400.The salesman said they do not want to "rip off" their customers. I admire that as we should all.

Lets just hope they do that because for them it makes long term business sense

Buy at £2200 & keep for 3 years before the new Mk IV launch. Sell at £1200'ish perhaps. £333/year.
