Maybe the camera market is different in Dubai. But in Toronto (and I think most of the US) new flagship cameras usually maintain their debut prices for almost a year before there is any drop. It's taken this long for the D3s's price to drop approximately $600 CAD.
At one of our larger camera shops their asking price for the D3s is back to the original asking price of $5200!!
As far as availability goes...first shipments are all for the "Pro's". You have to prove to the sales guys you are a working photographer.
For me...I'd rather wait for the head-to-head testing before I spend that much money for a camera body. I'm presently a Nikon shooter. But if the 1D-X proves superior...maybe I'll jump ship...and that's a HUGE maybe. The 1D-X goes for 7k CAD ($6300 CAD for the D4). Rather get a FF camera the size of either the 5D3 or D800. I want a camera with good native ISO range. Having a max of 6400 doesn't cut it for me (Nikon Rumours claims the D800 will only have a max native ISO of 6400). At that rate I might as well buy a 5D2 or D700. So I'm waiting for the 5D3 and D800 (hope there are 2 models...one with 100-12,800 native ISO).
All else fails (e.g. D800 and 5D3 end up with max native ISO of 6400) I might just go buy a D3s. Still a great camera today. Not that different from the D4. The D4's improvements are mostly incremental at best.
Plus, the battery life of the D3s almost doubles that of the D4.
I wonder what it is about the D4 that will require so much more juice.
