I thought 5D Mark III was to be deeply discounted? Already in Canada the price for body only is $3K from a dealer. Ebay deals starting to look better.

Actually same as the 24-70mm. Already purchased it cheaper in Canada.

YAWN

Same here. I really hoped the discount on 5diii would be more substantial  :(

So does anyone know if dealers honor the actual rebates or is this only from Canon direct? The 6D + 24-105 lens package has a $200 rebate bringing it down to $2399. But it's already $2399 from B+H and Amazon. Will they still give the $200 off? Just not super clear how it works. And this is the camera that I have been thinking of upgrading to.

Thanks.
in the past,  dealers were required to return their pricing to minimum advertised price to be eligible for the rebate to be applicable,  so you did see the price go up by a hundred and then drop by two hundred.   but last year canon forced authorized retailers to go to minimum advertised pricing which I don't think lasted long,  but I could be wrong about that.

I forget if it was adorama or b&h,  but they had their sale pricing at midnight and then the rebate kicked in so you could double dip.   and then the following day their price went to minimum advertised price.  so look around for what you want and maybe you'll find a good deal.
Upgrade  path.->means the former was sold for the latter.

Ive been tracking the price of the 400 5.6L on B&H over the last while. It has been dropping in price since Christmas and earlier in the week it was down to $1199. The lens is eligible for $120 rebate now and the B&H price has gone up to $1339. So in my mind the rebate is not passed on to the customer.

Call and negotiate.  It's minimum advertised price.  Throw out an offer of 1080 and see if they take it.  DONE!

What usually happens is the dealers know people are going to buy these items as soon as the rebates start so they mark them up, but after awhile they begin to drop again and after a few weeks of rebates they end up lower than before the rebates started. Say for example the 24-70 is now about $2049. The 200 dollar rebate might end up bring it down to between $1949 to $1999. I expect it to be that price in a month or so. In December with the last rebates. I managed to pick up a new 70-200 II 2.8l for about $1875 counting a 10% off amazon christmas coupon and 1% back on my visa card. Also no tax in my state :) You just have to wait it out.

That 6D kit (with the 70-300f4-5.6 IS USM), wow, it's like they're throwing one of their best lenses at you for free.

Edit: For clarities sake I think I should change this to reflect that I though it was the "L" lens they were giving away.

While the L version of that lens ranks among their top lenses, the non-L version included in the kit could hardly be considered "one of their best".  At 300mm, it's about as sharp as a bowl of pudding.  :P

Thanks for catching that.

I'll go to the corner now and hang my head in shame (I can't believe I missed the lack of an "L", the most important designation in Canon's naming scheme).

Where are all the 6D owners that should now feel totally screwed by Canon because they are taking 500$ off this camera when they bought it at full price....

Evil, evil, evil Canon....

How long has the 6D been available? 

If you are going to be a first adopter, you have to be willing to understand you are paying to have the device now... not tomorrow.  If you are going to be patient, you are going to save money.

B&H has now updated the prices on many of the Canon products. Unfortunately they are much higher than Adorama's, and some are even higher than the rebate that occurred in March.

70-200mm f/2.8 IS II: $2099
24-70mm f/2.8 II: $2049
5D Mark III: $3099

Very disappointing round of rebates at these price points.

It's too bad you can't use the rebates to any advertised price from an authorized dealer. Then, $300 discounts would mean something...  Why put out these 'Rebates' if you're not really saving? Just a waste of time and money...
