Just ordered mine. It was over $1600 for me after tax/shipping :(

But it will be my first full frame so I'm excited. Trading in my old Powershot A590 IS point & shoot.

Got my 70-200 f/2.8 IS II for $1700 on CL.

I didn't even want it, I was planning to sell it for more than I paid... until I actually tried it. Now I take it everywhere. Despite the weight it's just too awesome not to have with me everywhere :P

Why would Low Budget full frame buyers buy High-Dollar L-glass? Seems likely they would buy a 5D3 if they had L-glass money.

Not necessarily. I own a 70-200mm f/2.8 IS II and a Rebel T3i. Bought the 70-200mm practically new on CL for $1700 with intent to sell it for more, but decided not to after seeing how FREAKING AWESOME it is.

The 5D3 is waaay too expensive but a sub-$2000 full frame is of great interest to me, whether it's a new body or a price-dropped MK2. Anything I can use to take advantage of my L glass without hitting my wallet too hard.

The box is definitely worth keeping for items you plan to sell.

Would it be at all possible to hand-carry the camera bodies but break down the boxes and fold them flat to lay on one side of your suitcase/luggage? Then reassemble the boxes once you're back home. Not sure how strict customs would be about this but it might be worth a try.
