I just ordered a MK3 body for 3,099 on evil bay. USA retail, non-grey market.
Its really too bad your supporting evil bay by buying something they will get at least a 10% fee out of on the seller side, if not more when you factor in the PayPal fees as well. :\ (I really despise ebay these days...moneygrubbing greedmonsters...meh.)
Oh well, Too bad canon didn't turn out a product that I feel is worth the extra 500$ Retail.
Well, at least Canon would put that extra $500 to GOOD use! More money to fund better R&D, so that the next sensor they release IS as good as an Exmor, maybe? ;P All eBay will do with it is hire more moneygrubbing greedmonsters to figure out how to stick it to their sellers to and even greater degree! Yay...funding ebay greed...fun....
You bet, Canon would put those 500 Bucks in their pocket! LoL!
Look Canon should have just priced the 5d3 at 2999$ and everything would have been peachy. It would be an equal priced but faster camera to compete with the d800. When an extra 500$ get slammed on top of the other thing's I'll need to run the camera into my workflow, Its just bleh.
I probably would have just purchased the 5D3 at release if it was 2999$. No problemo.
