Great price! Would pick it up if I already didn't have it.

I got lucky and caught that they had the sale running yesterday and picked one up. Been waiting a long time to get this and am so excited.

Ditto.  Only thing I am looking for is a 600 F4 II and I don't see those being discounted much (if at all).

Oh, come on....the price for the 600 II dropped $200 since it was launched.   :o   Think of all the money I could have saved by waiting!  :'(

Actually, it's a LOT cheaper at Canadian retailers.  Just sayin'.

Good deal.  Gosh, it's only $500 or so more than I bought my 5D MKII a year ago...

Nice price! I was lucky to buy a combo and after a good sale of 24-105 I got the price to pretty much the same level back a year ago. But now just looking at this  deal i'm instantly getting wild thoughts of getting an extra body....

I find it odd, that if you check their ebay feedback, the last 25 straight(didn't read past the first page) ALL of them are NEGATIVE feedback.
many state that the 5D3's they are selling, are actually not even new, but used bodies

The feedback page you saw was a Filtered feedback link that Only shows negative feedbacks.......

I just got my 5DM3 from this sale yesterday and it seems completely legit. It even came with the warranty card. I compared it to another 5DM3 and it matches identically. I also did some quick testing of pictures and video, and it worked great with no problems. I would recommend buying from Big Value Inc. if you're looking for equipment. I've purchased a couple lenses from them as well and they've all been great.

I'm canadian and I thought so too, BUT... add 13% tax and it all equals out.
Luckily, foreigners do not need to pay tax.

I just purchased the EOS 5D Mark III Body $2549 deal from BVI. The package arrived in 4 days. The box indicated that a lens 'was' in the box but it had been removed. Otherwise everything was as if I had purchased a new 5d mk iii body including USA/Canada warranty card. So far, so good. I can't complain.

Just received this deal.

False advertising that this is "NEW - unopened" instead should be changed/labeled to "NEW - other". As the previous poster mentioned above, the original listing was described for a BODY only, however the box that was shipped was labeled with the 24-105 kit lens that obviously was missing. Contents were shrewn and disorganized upon opening, the battery charger was out of packaging and the EOS CD packaging was bent and nearly torn off.

I did verify that the camera they shipped me has a 0 count from eoscount, so most likely they opened the box and were sloppy when removing/selling the lens. Given that no warranty was mentioned/implied, it is highly likely the camera body is grey market and not USA making the "USA/CANADA warranty card" that was supplied in the box (which is pretty easy to dupe/counterfeit) useless.

Given that the description was not completely honest to begin with I'm slightly thrown off and disappointed. Pending how Canon and BigValue respond I may end up returning the camera.
