Wow, this looks to be a very interesting deal...w/the 5D Mark III.  This is a camera I'd interested in getting to use as my primary and my current 5D Mark II as the secondary.  As I've never purchased camera gears w/rebates, does anyone know what kind/type of rebate is this in the form of (Amex gift card?).  Also, anyone currently using the Pro-100?  What are your thoughts on this printer?  Also do you use the printer for other jobs aside from photos?

The AMEX $400 gift card is a debit card that you can use anywhere. :)

These deals should be clarified, because some people cannot see the price reduction right away (until they go to the cart checkout). Yeah, I know. Some people can't read. LOL

This is perfect timing for me, as I have been looking at buying the EOS 6D with the 24-105mm EF L lens by the end of September! :)

I'm glad I read this thread, because I am going to be buying my first DSLR and I have decided it is going to be from Canon. I've read horror stories from people with Nikon's service. Looking at getting the Rebel 5Ti, the new 70D (when it is out), or the 6D. Decisions, decisions... LOL

I heard there is a company named Nikon,
they produce cameras and lenses too.

You can check them out at www.nikon.com

The problem with Nikon is that the build quality of their DSLRs leaves something to be desired. I am looking at four other cameras right now, besides the new 70D to come. Since this is my first DSLR, I have the choice of going with APS-C or 35mm FF formats at the very start.

1. Canon Rebel T5i (APS-C)
2. Canon 70D (APS-C) - when available
3. Canon 6D (35mm FF)
4. Nikon D7100 (APS-C)
5. Nikon D600 (35mm FF)

This afternoon I was at Best buy checking out them (except for the 70D, obviously). I am not impressed with the build quality of Nikon DX/FX lenses. They feel so cheap compared to Canon's EF-S and EF lenses. Regarding the quality of the camera bodies themselves, Canon wins hands down, even on the Rebel T5i.

I found out why this is so... Canon manufactures their camera bodies in Japan, as well as their lenses. Nikon? Not so much, and it definitely shows.

Canon may be a little conservative in the way they build their DSLRs, but at least they are solidly built. If I am going to be investing thousands of dollars, over time, for camera gear, I want to make sure the stuff is going to last. Now, I know why Nikon has a four-year warranty on their lenses - they break down so often, so service is required over and over again.

After picking up and really examining the EF L series of lenses, I have to say that I am quite impressed with the quality of them. My thinking is that I could start with a 70D if the 6D does not woo me over and then upgrade to a 35mm FF model later on. I would only buy the EF L lenses, so I would not have to buy new lenses when and if I make a transition from APS-C to 35mm FF. Since I am starting from fresh I'd really like to start with a FF body though. :)
