Has there been any indication that this will happen any time soon?  This has been the rock bottom price we've seen thus far. 

Looking to purchase next week.

Any concerns with this seller datavis_sales?  I know it is Canon authorized resller and the sale is the same price as last week or the week before.  I was wondering if anyone who ordered last time had any feedback or have received the camera  from this seller.

Thanks...

After reading this on The Digital Picture, I decided to go for it and place my order now. They can't ship today due to Hurricane Sandy, but hopefully soon.

Canon will begin cracking down on minimum advertised pricing (MAP) starting tomorrow, Nov 1. The retail prices for several DSLR cameras as well as some lenses will be changing significantly. If you plan on buying a DSLR camera in the near future, I suggest buying it now.

I hear ya, silversurfer96, same for me. I've read reviews and forum chatter 'till I was blue in the face. What tipped my scales (beyond the sale price) was hearing from a pro-photog friend of mine up in Alaska, earlier today. He just ordered his second 5DIII last week, telling me it's an amazing camera that's worth every penny. We shall see!

Just remember one very important thing regarding MAP, it ONLY applies to the minimum price a retailer can advertise an item for.  It does NOT establish a minimum a retailer can SELL an item for.  So if you see the 5D MkIII listed or advertised for $3,499 starting tomorrow, call them and just ask would you be willing to sell it for $2,999?  If they say no, they can't do that because of Canon.  Explain that no factory or distributor can legally set a minimum sell price, they can establish a minimum adverstised price in the United States.  Big difference between the two.

You're making it way more complicated than it really is...the way the big box places deal with that is they list it lower and put "add to cart to see price" or something similar. That way no services can pull the info on the pricing, yet someone looking for a deal can still find it.

That said, if Canon goes the Nikon route, good luck finding an item for even a dime less than retail. The D800 is $2999 everywhere with Nikon's lock-down. And if a retailer wants to try and get around it, Nikon can pull their authorized status. PLENTY of options out there, the camera makers have the power in that struggle.

Misinformation!!!

bigvalueinc is not an authorized dealer! They will lie to your face that their products have Canon USA warranty. They don't! If you know about Canon warranty and complaint enough, they will give you extended warranty through Consumer Priority Service (CPS) for free.

This happens to a friend of mine who bought something from them and their product didn't have Canon USA warranty card.
