As always, buyer beware.  This is most certainly a grey market camera (some people care about that, others don't) and this seller has a reputation of selling used cameras as new, or missing parts: http://feedback.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewFeedback2&userid=bigvalueinc&iid=230828116912&de=off&items=25&which=negative&interval=30&_trkparms=negative_30

Not happy to see CR promoting shady dealers like this.  I don't come to CR to find back alley deals.  ::)

I have a small business and sell on ebay.  About 0.5 - 1% of the buyers act like total idiots, they expect much more than advertised.  Many with a issue do not actually send a e-mail, they just think they did.  Documenting it by using the ebay email system really helps.
The biggest issue is wrong addresses.  A seller is going to ship to the address provided by ebay or Paypal, and a certain percentage have moved but not updated their address, or, they just plain do not know their correct address.  Then, its the sellers fault for not knowing!!
I immediately correct any problems that are made known to me, but there are a lot of people who do not read and want something that was not offered or listed, then they complain.
Negative feedback goes with the territory.  If a big seller has about 2% or less of issues, they are doing a reasonable job.  If they were perfect, they would still have up to 1% negative feedback.

Of course, there are definitely a ton of positive comments too.  As I stated earlier in the post, some people don't care about grey market -- others do, so yes you can always make your own decisions.

The trouble with the type of feedback that has been given is that it is often for shipping used cameras when the buyer purchased a new one, or taking out some of the included accessories.  Slow shipping, poor communication, shipping damage -- that all happens, and I've sold about 2500 items on eBay so I know the complaints that I've had against me.

There are numerous 5D mkIII listings where it was shipped without accessories -- that should never ever happen. It just pays to do a little research and decide if you want to chance such a large purchase from a dealer who has been known to have honesty and trust issues.

I'm with you crimson blue....if a person is going to make an $6000 purchase on a precision instrument like a 1Dx, then you should buy from a reputable canon dealer.  If you don't, you're just asking for trouble. 

BH and Adorama are "quality" sellers with good prices.  When buying high end items of any kind, buy from a "quality" seller.

I agree. I do not think CR should put promotions on the home page unless it is from an authorised dealer, and even then it should be checked it is genuine and not new age advertising.

1D X + backup + different L lenses etc.

BigValue is a Canon authorized seller. Any more questions?

I'd have much better gear if so.  ;)  Try looking them up on Canon's web site before you jump to conclusions...

Can you point us in the right direction?

This is Canon's list of authorised dealers in the US:

http://www.usa.canon.com/CUSA/assets/app/pdf/dealer/CanonAuthorizedDealers.pdf

This is a recent thread on CR about said company:

http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=11200.0

I also looked at their own website and you would think an authorised dealer would be proud of such a thing and use it as a selling point yet it does not mention it anywhere.

I have nothing against them, but now you have peaked my interest.
