With this deal, I'm tempted to pull trigger on 2nd body.

As am I! 58 sold last night, and it's been re-listed with 50 more...

Pricewatch Deals / 5D Mark III + 24-105mm + 600EX-RT - Smoking Hot Deal!
« on: November 23, 2012, 09:09:18 PM »
I just got this e-mail from CanonPriceWatch:

You are receiving this e-mail because you are signed up for a price notification
on the 5D Mark III.

Adorama via eBay has a bundle deal on the 5D Mark III.
It includes: 5D Mark III + 24-105mm Kit + 600EX-RT

http://www.canonpricewatch.com/bundles/1126

The price is really good, and too low for us to write here (due to MAP).

Thanks. I thought I'd never see the 5D2 refurbished that low.

The price in US for this lens is $2300. Where do you see the price drop? The price will remain as is even on black friday(same for 1D X).
It was a short term sale and is over now, I posted a link at the time.
At first, that is the type of sale we will see. 
On Black Friday (or the following Monday) last year, B&H had a blanket 10% discount for all their cameras and lenses.  It only ran for a few hours.  I cannot guarantee that it will happen again, but it is likely. They tweeted it to those who were signed up to receive their tweets.

That sale is back now, check at the link above for $2249.

The EOS 5D Mark III is now in-stock new for $2799.00, which is below your price target of $2800.00.

You won't receive another price notification for 5 days, unless the price drops even lower.


They're an authorized dealer, they ran a sale last week and many people had positive feedback on their quick shipping.

Pricewatch Deals / Re: New Canon INSTANT REBATES for October - December!
« on: October 28, 2012, 09:45:03 PM »
Oh great.  So last week I ordered the original (non-IS) 70-200 2.8 from Adorama at regular price because it was not on the last rebate.  Only the version 2 IS (which I cannot afford) was on the rebate.  Now they have a new rebate that DOES include my lens!  Oh well, from the prices shown on the link, Adorama is only discounting it 36 bucks from what I paid, so not a huge loss.

B&H has it for $1185 though. Which is $150 cheaper. Worth doing a return for, or at least calling Adorama and asking them if they'll help you out.

Never mind. B&H went back up to $1299.

will there be an even bigger price drop in December?
or should i purchase now?

The current set of rebates will probably be extended in December to last until January, but stores may further drop beyond these rebates.

You can get cheaper from an authorized dealer. Copying from someone else's post on the POTN forum:

Current cheapest 5D3 is PMI Digital via eBay for $3169.75, less $63.40 in eBay bucks, for net $3106.35.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Canon Announces the Canon EOS 6D DSLR
« on: September 19, 2012, 03:59:39 PM »
Well the low rent autofocus system and a top shutter speed less than my current 50D have put my wallet right back in my pocket.  I have $2,600 burning a hole in my pocket and I don't think this camera is worth what they are asking.  It really looks like they took out as much stuff as possible and hope the "full frame" would sell it.  Disappointment.  In another 6 months I'll be able to afford a 5D3.  I think that is the way to go
Could of just about had one yesterday as they were selling the mark iii for $2750 on Adorama's ebay page.
I've heard that in a number of places.  I look at canon price watch daily and I did not see this .  Does Adorama have a separate ebay page?  Do you have a link?  I would have jumped on this but I keep missing these.  Thanks

It was certainly there, that's how I got mine. Try signing up for e-mail notification. I got emailed it 11:02 am, and when I went to the ebay page only 1 was sold. It was linked off the usual 5D3 page.

You can also try the in-stock notification tool built into canonpricewatch, which works really well for refurbs. I picked up a 24-70 and also the 70-200 II last 20% discount, this way.

It's handy in that it tells you when something was last in stock, which gives you an idea of how rare something is. On their facebook page, they mentioned that they check every 15 seconds and get notifications out within seconds of that.

The real question is, why is this site so quiet?  Canon seems to be getting a lot better at keeping secrets.

Looks like a G15 leak just landed at CPW: http://www.canonpricewatch.com/
