Just curious about other people's experience/thoughts.
Everyone knows that the best deal from traditional retailers like B&H and Adorama is to buy the 24-105 mm "L" kitted with either a 6D or 5DIII.
But, lately, I've noticed that the bargain dealers on eBay often run specials selling the white box lenses and the 6D or 5DIII separately for less than what they offer the body and lens kits for (or at least that's what the math seems to be to me when I compare prices).
I get why retailers would split the kits and sell them separately to make a bit more profit, but I would think they would be just as happy to offer the same discount for the unbroken kit, yet I'm not seeing that. Anyone else getting that impression and any suggestions why that might be?
If you bought a full frame recently, did you buy it as a kit or separately?
