I want to buy an 5D mk ii + 24-105 L IS kit over internet...
« on: August 15, 2013, 03:24:30 PM »
I was looking for a new camera for a while.
I have bought a  canon 10-20 f3.5 and 70-200 F4 IS from B&H photo, but 5D mk ii is out of stock...
One of my friend is now in US. I want to buy it over internet and ship the kit to New Jersey.
I have checked canon us autorized dealers, but most of them don' t have it in stock.
I give an order to new york camera&video yesterday, but today they make a refund because it is out of stock :/

Could you plese help me to find a reliable dealer which has 5D mk ii  + 24- 105 L kit?
Best regards,
Burak

You know the Canon 10-22 will not work with the 5DII, right?

In fact 10-20 works but crops the corner :D
I know it is discontinued, also  i bought my 50D when it was discontinued ...
Kit is available in Turkey, but the price is about 3700 USD...
Body is about 2700 USD ...
24-105 lens is 1600 USD...

Its going to be difficult to find a discontinued camera that is still new.  More expensive as well.
 
Why not get a 6D with 24-105mm lens, for less money and everyone has them.

Agree with Spokane. 6D is superior in almost all ways. If you can't manage the 6d, be aware that Get It Digital on ebay is currently selling the 24-105 for $660. You can always pick up a 5DII later.

6D is new, has better proccessor but for me 5D mk ii is best choice.
6D has smaller and lighter body so someting must be missed.

I have found one more web site, but i' m not sure the kit is available

For 6D, i can wait because it is a new camera and my 50D is still in good condition.
6D has some technical advantages but for me 5D is legend :D
I have checked the 24-105 really good price. If i'll not order the kit i can buy it.
But in the details of the lens it is writen as "lens was a part of kit" So there is a little risk...

No. Not really. The only advantage of the 5Dll is quicker access to more advanced functions via dual function top buttons and the thumb toggle switch. The improvements of the 6D are numerous. I won't get into the polycarbonate vs magnesium argument here.

A "white box" kit lens is identical in every way to a retail packaged lens.

I' m in a hurry because of 5D mk ii is discontinued and still expensive in Turkey. I did not test /use 6D. Also non of my friend has it.  I'll not buy 6D for now because it is a new body, i have enough time to test & check , because my 50D is alive...
Thanks for explaining "white box". At least i'll get 24-105, i hope 5D also :D

Are you serious?

If so, I have a 6-7 pound 1998 Dell laptop to sell you for the price of a current 2-3 pound model.

The 6D is an upgrade from the 5D2 in virtually every way, especially image quality.
When people see you arguing with an idiot on the internet, all they see is two idiots arguing.

It shows 5D II kit in stock for $2,999.99  and they do ship for free worldwide.(click help and check international shipping)  Do your country charge custom duty and tax for import ? Will Canon in Turkey honor warranty ?

6D has policarbon top cover, 5D has magnesium .
6D is new but flash syns is 180, 5D has 200
6D has a smaller sensor (a litle bit)
6D has smaller viewfinder coverage etc. 
6D is new and chipper (than i have question marks:D :D ) , weight just was an example :D
The body can be made from titanium, or polycarbon.
Save your laptop for memories :P

It looks like the kit in the stock but i'm not sure it is realy in stock.
Because i give an order New York Photo & Camera and new day they refund my money because of the kit out of stock. Also if you check http://www.canonrumors.com/cameras/canon-rumors-price-watch/ for 5D, it shows buyding.com has the kit and buyding web site gives no warning, but there is no order/price link in the page :D
I' ll ship it to my friend in NJ and she'll handcarry it for me. If they send it directly to Turkey, customs apply %18tax :D
