Spoke with Regina @ BVI, It is the USA model, but it does not include Canon warranty because they are not an authorized reseller (her words)

So there's that.  As some said, they're new and they're USA, Canon MAY choose to honor the warranty.

That said, I was waiting for this, now I'm nervous. *rofl*

So you don't want to pay retail price and you want Canon to give you 100% warranty?

What a pu**%...let roll those balls and pull the trigger NOW ;D

Whew! Now I don't have to spend all that money..... I almost did, even though I really can wait until Fall. I have a feeling the price will go even lower around Christmas. I am sure many of these sold will end up on ebay for several hundred bucks more. That's kind of disgusting, but obvious.

Well, that WAS quoted both out of context AND out of order :P

We'll let that pass though ;D

1) A MK3 body refurb is $2977 w/tax  -- I wouldn't begrudge Canon that, NEW, but I do begrudge the state of CT, since I pay city, state, land, water and (wait for it) car tax --- it's a principal thing :P
2) It's roll the bones BONES, not balls. If you roll balls, they keep rolling, because they're, well, spherical
3) @ $879 w/ 1-year warranty refurbed, I'm going to hop on that 7D deal from Adorama and wait a bit on replacing the 5DmkII

I just need a new toy that's an upgrade from what I got now ;D  I can't afford a Panamara Turbo, which, in my opinion, is the only way to upgrade from my 2009 Mazda6 GTi w/manual transmission (and 100k miles) . . . so the 7D is cheaper.   Now that I think about it, if I buy BOTH it's cheaper! Bwahahaha

Well... I jumped. I have a 40D (1st camera), skipped the 5D2 and waited for the 5D3. When the 5D3 was released for $3500 I was crushed. I was expecting $2800 max. I missed several of these types of sales, and hesitated when I could have bought it for $2850 some months ago. I was going to just wait for the 5D4, 2015/16, but then those plans went out the door when I saw the 5D3 at this price. With that, unless the 5D4 is a work of art in comparison to the 5D3 (doubt it), I'll be skipping the 5D4. 

I like my 40D a lot, but became annoyed with the ISO and focusing limitations. However, those limitations helped me to improve in other areas, especially lighting. I'm excited and nervous at the same time, especially since I've only ever used the 5D3 once in a camera store. Guess I'll have to get an 85mm to replace the 50mm field of view on the 40D to round out my collection of lens.

Ugh . . . gawd.

Um. ughhh oh, it hurts me.

I'll answer:
1) Those are PERFECT to really toss out in the middle of a really good argument of pertinent things, but how are they pertinent?
2) 2 pics in response to a decently comedic layout . . . do you have ADHD?
3) You get my arse a pink/lime green/neon yellow 5Dmk3 with 1 year warranty for $2k and I am all over that stuff; I'll own it, you can market me using it . . . all day every day.

Soooooo, well, here it is.  Your intervention.  The images are really cool and wrought for for a slick, snarky response (which I'm all over), but geeze, did you get those today and are dying to use them?  :( New to the internet, yes?

It's okay. We love you. We accept you for who you are. You'll learn.

Need a hug? I'm good at hugs. ;D

People think you're cranky and offer to hug you!
