Canon 5DmIII for $2,199
« on: November 16, 2012, 11:04:27 PM »
So I signed up to receive notifications from canonpricewatch.com for when there are price drops on the Canon 5D mark III.  Twice now I have received notifications for the 5DmIII for sale for $2199 from Dell, but by the time I check my email and go to the link the price has risen again. If you go to the "recent price change" page here: http://www.canonpricewatch.com/price-changes/p=03868 you can see the price drop listed.  I was just curious if anyone has been able to actually get the body for this price?

Yeah that's what I figured.  I was hoping there was just someone from Dell who was feeling really generous with the Holiday season just around the corner.

Saw as well.  Figured must have been a glitch of some sort.  Due to MAP I don't think we'll see anything below $3299 from authorized sellers -- at least with the advertised price :(  What fun is that?

Right now, $2799 is the lowest price I see.

Since it is happening multiple times, I would suspect them doing it on purpose to lure people to their site. You will not find the 5dIII at that price for a good 5 years lol.
