amazon - 5d3 -- $2999/3299 wo/w 24-105L...
« on: December 01, 2012, 04:20:52 AM »
wow...  dealnews.com (just a viewer, i dont work for them) listed that amazon has the body for 2999 and with the kit lens for 3299...

http://www.amazon.com/Canon-Frame-Digital-Camera-24-105mm/dp/B007FGZ1V0/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1354352708&sr=8-2&keywords=5d+mark+iii

i'm ready to pull the trigger, so to speak...  :)  but since they added the kalif tax deal... sigh...

would adorama or B&H or any other AUTHORIZED dealer price match this?

thanks...

Amazon has historically been combative with Canon on MAP pricing. It seems to have limited their supply of certain products in the past.  Doubtful that Adorama or BH would match it, but it never hurts to ask...

That's only $300 for a new 24-105L lens?! That's ridiculous, looking at these prices my eyes water when I look at the prices in Germany :-o

Wow not a bad deal.

Should I go with the Mark III with the 24-105?

or my original plan, The 6d with the Tamron 24-70?

decisions decision decisions.

This is no brainer.  Buy 5D III + 24-105L of course.

If f4 is too slow for you, then sell the 24-105 and get tammy f2.8.

screaming deal on the kit, hopefully some folks can jump on this.  Actually no reason to buy body only, buy the kit, sell the 24-105 for $700 (which should get it sold fast) and whammo $2600 5diii

Oh don't worry...the deal will pop up somewhere else (B&H, or adorama again...etc)... this is called a "managed slide" ;) ... low prices will pop up breifly, but then go up again, repeat the cycle, all along moving down till the body price hits probably ~$2500 stably. Lets not forget, it has already hit that ...but went back again. You just have to wait till they bring the baloon down slowly :)

But the amazon deal would have been a fair buy if one had been in the market for a 5DIII. But like I said, Just wait, same or similar deal will be back soon. :)

Oh well. I added it to my cart and had one second thought.

I came back and the deal expired :(

Let's wait then.
