Title: 5d3 and 1dx preorders
Post by: niccyboy on March 02, 2012, 05:06:28 AM
Just added a 5d3 and a wireless trans to my 1dx preorder from Steve in the pro dept in teds Melb.

Excited for new kit. Their list price for the 5d3 is 4200 for some reason but they said it won't be released at that.

I went to preorder from bh but with customs and postage that added 450 to it so it wouldnt be a big saving.

Hopefully I book a job os around the release!

Toyyysss!

Don't go to jb, they'll rip you off. $4500+ for body only. $5000+ for a kit with the 24-105mm. And $6000+ for a "premium" kit, which they couldnt tell me what it was. Harvey norman is similar.

Premium kit would have a 24-70 f2.8II i guess.

at those prices i'd buy a kit and sell the lens.

I will find out when hopefully i get my preorder tomorrow.

Anyone want to take a punt on how many months (or years?) it will take canon Australia to lower the price of the 5dmkiii? E.g it was a fair while before the 70-200mkii's price dipped....then rose again
