Pricewatch Deals / Re: Ended: Canon EOS 5D Mark III Body $2559

welp just received and unboxed it. it looks like it was def not packaged completely, like someone let it slip out of the warehouse before the final packing steps. Def gray market (no warranty card).

It is def a brand new 5dmkiii though, with all the accessories.

Charging the battery now and will be testing the pants off it to make sure it's properly functional. Will update here when done, will test across my entire lens range as well.

Pretty stoked so far.

*edit* No manual either, but I don't really need that wouldn't be buying such a camera if I didn't know what I was getting into hah. But still provides to the "gray marketness" of this overall. Wish the battery would charge faster :: ) What a beast compared to the t2i it's sitting next to right now lol.
Well that's exciting... enjoy!!! I haven't picked up 5D Mark II since the III arrived!!! :) ;)

Random... I just don't trust them...I bought my 5D Mark III from Best Buy here in CT 4/7/2014... I chatted with the manager and she was able knock $300 off the price. It wasn't the $800 off as they are offering here. Everything that glitters isn't gold either...  I looked through the feedback on some of these ebay stores and saw that some of the buyers of these large dollar purchases (5D Mark III & 1 DX) had to deal with high upsale pressure on the extended warranty and other crap. Some had to go through ebay to get their refund some didn't get the camera until weeks later also some ended up with used items. Hey it's your money... I'd love to save a buck too  :) :) :) ;) ;) ;) ;) I just choose to deal with a reputable seller that's all but in the end I wish those who choose to buy here good luck.  Just in Canon now offering a $200 off on a mail in rebate for this body....

To each his own.  I used a similar deal about 1.5 years ago to get the 5D III for 2500 for a brand new unit with the kit lens removed (which I knew was going to happen).
Hello Random I may look that way for the 1DX I really like the 5D Mark III but I truly love the DX

LOL, I'm afraid to try the 1DX -- I might like it too much and I really can't afford it!
LOL You will. I kicked the tires on the DX @ B&H Photo and what a machine it was!!!

I took the bait and snagged one, it will arrive tomorrow, so basically ridiculously fast shipping. I had also read the reviews, ebay's got you covered for anyone that is skeptical about a seller like this.

You can get your money back, shipping included, extremely easily if you follow the procedures ebay lays out.

It's def one of those "to good to be true", but in the slight chance it is an actual brand new gray market 5dmkiii for that price? I will take it happily.

If it's reboxed, or anything off, it will just go back and ebay will be notified right away.

I will update my post here with the info for anyone who cares, fingers crossed.

Cheers
gni.... I wish you well. I'll be looking for the 1DX soon. I saw some @ 5600 and that's a great deal.....

Hi I recently purchased the 5D Mark III camera and found that the Lightroom 3 would not process the Raw files. Wow... I thought I would have to purchase the lightroom 5 but however there's an add on you can use to process the Raw files for your Lightroom 3 :) :) :) I know that this works for windows 8.1. I hope this helps: http://blogs.adobe.com/crawlspace/2011/03/why-doesnt-my-version-of-photoshop-or-lightroom-support-my-camera.html

Start of a nosedive??

Maybe the first hint of the pre-dev announcement of the marketing campaign for the dev announcement of the 1DX Mk II.   ;D

Gray market deals like this have been popping up for some time now.  The 1D X has also shown up on the Canon USA refurb site for less than that.
I'll take the chance with Canon

Sometimes it just isn't worth the crazy hassle of saving a few bucks!!! SMH!!!  :-X

840 is off 3399 is more than just a few bucks...  The warranty is only good for a year, and you can get 3rd party insurance coverage for much less than 840.  Plus 6ave is offering its own warranty to cover the year, so much much risk is there?

If anyone wants to save money, they should wait for the holidays, or else wait for a "refurb sale" from Canon USA (and sign up for the updates on canonpricewatch...also consider camel x3 for amazon price updates).  Or you could consider buying used.

I have a feeling the 5D3, full USA model, will sell new at or under $2450, sometime in the holiday season.  And of course it will go well below that, if you factor in lens kit deals (it's already done that this past holiday season).  I wonder just how low it will go?  Also wonder if there will be a 5D4 development announcement sometime in 2015, or before?  Surely there will be a rumor of one in development, if not an announcement.  Of course whatever the next full frame body that gets announced (if it's not the 5D4 replacement), might factor in to the timeline of a replacement.
+1  :) :) :) Yes I agree that it's a good idea to wait for the holidays for major camera purchases. Dealing with these gray market stores on ebay not so good. Yes the feedback says 99.3 % but what if you're the .7% stuck dealing with a 5D Mark III or a 1DX  that you can't get a warranty for... I say that's money wasted.

This is funny. A lot of people would get a sh*t load of cr*p & only a few would rather focus on quality. Quality over quantity any day!

10k:

5D3 x2
35 mm prime
85 mm prime

That's about it and pretty much 10k spent and a perfect set acquired for general shooting.

I would so much rather have a 24-70 and 70-200 2.8ii over a 35 and 85 prime...not even a contest for me.

or you could say it will not be earth shattering because canonrumors had no clue about an "annoucement" prior to the teaser... but then.... that´s always the case isn´t it?   8)

Agreed
