EOS Bodies / Re: 5D mkii at $2,219 on Amazon today (12-7)

If Ryusui is correct- you could get free shipping and pay only $1,979.22 USD from here: http://www.henrys.com/


Henry's has been sold out of the body only for a while now.  At least - it hasn't been showing up on their website.  just the kit.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon 5D3 Announcement Date & Poll (and your thoughts)
« on: November 29, 2011, 06:58:57 PM »
I was recently told by a Canon employee (I will not mention their seniority, affiliation, etc., as to protect their identity) that he has seen "hints of a new EOS body" being unveiled at "the 2012 CES show".  CES 2012 is scheduled for January 10-13.

The employee I spoke with admitted that he was not privy to product launch information, or "in development" EOS bodies, and that specific launch date details are heavily guarded company secrets.  However, he did mention that Canon had plans for a "larger than normal" CES booth/presence this year, with arrangements being made for high level employees and product reps. to be on hand.

It's definitely a "read between the lines" kind of scenario - but interesting none the less.

EOS Bodies / Re: 5DM2 Purchase From Canada (Henrys) to USA

P.S. the paypal currency conversion is not very advantagous for you (paypal takes a %)

I guess it's relative...

Even with Paypal's 2.9% currency exchange fee, the 5D MKII is still only $2,070 [Canadian] shipped to the US.  That's still a heck of a lot cheaper than the $2,349-$2,499 USD prices that the 5D MKII sells for here in the states.

Just got this back from them, about 15 minutes after I emailed....

"You will be charged in Canadian Funds and Paypal will make the necessary conversion.  We have 18 bodies as of the writing of this email."

EOS Bodies / Re: Photo gear insurance?
« on: November 06, 2011, 01:37:38 PM »
Anyone recommend any good (value) photo gear insurance. Preferably in the UK?

Thanks

Don't know about the UK, but here in the states, I have a rider on my home owner's insurance policy for all of my photo gear.  It's only about $18 a month for coverage of all my gear - with a $100 deductible.  Premiums vary depending on if you're covering gear for personal use, or professional use.

Just a head's up to those posting photos in here...

You should repost your photos in the Official People Thread category if you want them to be considered for the contest.  It would be a shame for your photo to be disqualified by not posting in the proper thread!!
