Thanks to Adam for writing this in. The Canon 5D Mark II is currently on sale over at BestBuy. I just checked pricing over at Amazon, B&H, and a few other popular websites. Indeed it is a few hundred dollars cheaper. Not as cheap as a refurb unit (if you could ever catch it in stock), but it's been a little while since we've seen these 5D Mark IIs on sale.
Available in stores if you can find it (with tax) or grab it online (maybe no tax?) following the link (click here).
