Saw this on another forum, figured I'd clue in anyone here too:

If you're into that sort of thing :)

I don't think it's MAP that's the real hangup.  I think most of the retailers don't think they  have to take a hit as long as no one else is doing it.

The 5d3 and 1dx are great (new) products that will continue to generate orders . . . my experience is that vendors are more concerned about losing orders to other retailers.  Amazon and Newegg were going at it (watching each other, bestbuy and walmart) last year, but this year the deals have been pretty much ho-hum across the board.

I think that every time we declare a sale DAY, they pull back because of guaranteed orders . . . this year Cyber Monday was the new buzzword on everyone's lips that wasn't one of us doing 99% of our holiday shopping online.

We may still see some price drops, but it's a moving target.

(I changed sales to orders where appropriate to avoid confusion)

Hrm; I think it's like one of those magic-eye puzzles, where you just have to stare at it a long time for it to jump out at you . . .

If you look at the list of buyers, some folks purchased 3 or 4 bodies, all within a few minutes. Love the impulsiveness or maybe they are needed to set up a 3D project

These are people that make their money off of buying/selling merchandise like stocks.

I'm (sort of) one of them with regard to Legos.  It's that selling part I haven't quite gotten around to  ;D

Well, so far, I'm sitting here reading this and waiting for Fedex to Deliver my Dell.  Later, i'll go into Spokane and checkout new HD TV's at Costco.  They seem to be beating everyone on prices for mid level models.  I don't bother with the low end come-on prices that people fight over.  I'll have plenty of time to review the available models and decide.
I'm not keen on 3D either, so I may avoid that.
I successfully talked my wife into a new entry-level macbook pro, for the sole purpose I can give my old one, that my wife stole to my mother.  Actually, Costco's prices were even beating decent sale prices on TVs next week.  My only qualm is that they usually carry the mid level models and I've finally convinced the wife to do an upper-tier one.

One of her friends tried to get some doorbusters but couldn't find a deal on a parking spot  ;D

UPDATE! I got the BEST Black Friday deal in all of Western CT: I woke up, looked at the clock, then the temperature outside and went back to sleep.   ;D

It's supposed to be in the mid/upper 50's in here New England today, and you're complaining about the temperature?   :P

It's that first 4 miles on the way to work that are the hardest this last week; 4cyl japanese engines do NOT kick off heat quickly enough for my liking. ;)

Sun doesn't come up all the way until about 1/2 way through my 38 mi commute and BOY does it get foggy lately.

Yesterday WAS awesome around noon though.

Saw this first thing and decided to let it pass as it wasn't authorized.  Got me pretty excited though.

No direct link.

Click "Black Friday Deals" banner, then the right arrow over until you see it.

Probably worth the price if it's $400 or less -- when I moved to a good tripod, it made a big difference (I'll actually USE it from time to time, as opposed to before)

I think that CR trusts their normal vendors; let's reserve early judgement and see if they come through . . . Adorama aren't just normal internet jerk wads, they do have deals.  Maybe this was all premature.

I love your signature. 

It is possible these are what will be on sale Friday, but the sale prices aren't shown yet....we  will see.

It's not as bad now; The whole D600/D800 had five people that were literally thread-jacking every other post.

I think they moved over to slashdot where they try to get an apple-related thread on the front page every 12 hours to incite riot  ;D

When does this go into effect?  I'm asking before griping that it looks like the same pricing . . .

Then I guess either jewelry or an expensive bag can compensate to an EOS1Dx? (at least if you add the total value of jewelry bought recent years  ;)

Pricewatch Deals / Re: Black Friday at LensRentals.com

saw the used listings earlier and wondered why the 40mm and 24mm (new lenses) are being retired already . . .

I'd assume because they bought more units than the data show they need to keep on hand.  There's also likely a high rental demand when a lens is first released, then it settles down to steady state, and stock on the shelf doesn't earn money for them...

Good point, and since these are 'inexpensive' (for them) turnover is easier.
