Canon 5D Mark II Now Available on Amazon

The much anticipated Canon 5D Mark II is now available at Amazon. The whole holiday season, third party sellers have had this camera in stock using the Amazon storefront at exorbitant (or perhaps that should be extortion) prices, with nearly a 50% premium markup.

While the camera originally exhibited problems with black spots and banding, those have been fixed by Canon's recent firmware release.

UPDATE: It appears that Amazon sold out of their stock of Canon 5D Mark II's within a matter of hours. The 5D Mark II appears poised to be the new Wii of digital cameras.
