About BigValueInc

They are indeed a legit seller on eBay. We have received one complaint in the past, and BigValueInc corrected the issue in a timely manner. They sold hundreds of these cameras on “Black Friday” for $2499, so this deal is indeed real and one you should hop on if you’re in the market for a 5D Mark III.

They don't specify in their listings when things AREN'T US warrantied or white box/imports.  Double check with them to make sure...  I'd be surprised if they give you a straight answer (They didn't with me).

I bought my 24-70 f4 from them because it was $90 cheaper than retail (not enough to have warranted a white box or lack of warranty I didnt think).  The conversation about the warranty was painful to say the least (they played dumb and acted like they didnt understand what I was talking about and instead of saying "It does/doesnt have a US warranty" they kept saying "its brand new". 

Eventually after attempting to cancel the order they said they were in fact sending a US warrantied copy.  It came with a warranty but in a white unmarked box.  I would not go through them again to save that small of a percentage and end up with an unsealed white box... but the 5DIII deal seems like you can't go wrong.

I always get nervous just thinking about ordering something expensive from one of these sites. I'm not talking from experience, just being cautious. I guess use PayPal obviously as a way to protect yourself?

Also, I've heard Customer Service is not very consistent.

Serious question:  How can one distributor sell a camera for significantly less than other distributors?

It can't all be due to markup (which I know happens).  I am a bit leary when I read of one distributor selling the same product significantly cheaper than other distributors.  A deal that is too good to be true probably is.

So assuming that this is a legit distributor and they are selling the same product with the same warranty, how can they afford to sell it that much cheaper?

I bought a camera for 2499$ from BVI. It took two weeks to get here but It was indeed a USA camera.

I think they must be getting a special order/deal from Canon, I bought mine about 10 months ago on a special price similar to this, it was $2750 from Adorama and it was fully legit, came with valid warranty, USA model, the whole works. I think Canon needs to sell certain volume/year to keep the assembly line running at a steady rate and they were ahead of schedule so they are dumping a few hundreds at a fire sale.

It's funny how the same retailer, BigValueInc is listing the same camera twice for 2 different prices, once as $2866 and once as $2545, and both listed as brand new, which 5D mark III would you like to order today?

Different quantities. Drums up business.

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

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.
