$499 for the 600 flash
That 6D kit (with the 70-300f4-5.6 IS USM), wow, it's like they're throwing one of their best lenses at you for free.
I'll look at harnesses and holsters again but I have found that when I am in crowd situations, (I can think of multiple news and sports events where I had to thread through crowds of people to get to the front or out of harms way) and if I don't have hip pack/think tank gear pushed behind me...towards my back, then I am whacking every person in the crowd with my gear (ie hip holster type things) and it tends to piss them off...
Something that has engaged my attention is the user feedback on Amazon for both the 5D3 and the d800. Both have around 250 reviews however, negative reviews for the 5D is almost non existent while its considerable for the d800. Leads me to believe there are issues with the d800 that left many buyers disappointed. I hope it comes down even more it might drive me to get one.
So does anyone know if dealers honor the actual rebates or is this only from Canon direct? The 6D + 24-105 lens package has a $200 rebate bringing it down to $2399. But it's already $2399 from B+H and Amazon. Will they still give the $200 off? Just not super clear how it works. And this is the camera that I have been thinking of upgrading to.
canon lacks some glass Nikon has, and vice versa. In this day and age, both systems are so well stocked, you're really just buying your camera choice
After my experience with even Canon Grips flexing with a 70-200mm f/2.8, I've just lept away from them. Having your camera mounted to a heavy tripod with a expensive head and then have a spring between them was very frustrating. I'd be interested in hearing how stable it is and if it droops with the new Canon Grip. I'm also wondering if they inproved the attach mechanism where many users have had stripped threads.
The Canon grip doesn't flex all that much - though it is felt when attaching a heavy lens. But then whenever I use heavy lenses and the grip together, I mounting the setup using the tripod collar on the lens instead of the camera so flex really isn't an issue (for me at least).
