There seems to be a bit of discounting around on the 5d3... any gut feeling this might be a precursor to a replacement?

Canon didn't have a very good 2013. They are probably giving incentives to dealers to push as many out to end the year better.

Awesome deal though...   :o

There have been some incredible deals on 5D3's, 6D's and lots of high end lenses over the past three months.  Unfortunately, I bought most of my gear at much higher prices in the year or so before the discounting began.  5D's are now going for just $400 over what I paid for my 6D in December 2012!

That is a great deal!

A 1D body is next on my list but if that price gets much lower, it will be hard for me to not think really hard about a second 5Diii.

Lots of people seem happy with them but I'm not.  I bought one of their supposed "New In Box" 5D MkIII's before Christmas.  What I got was a crushed box, a camera that was obviously a return (factory stickers had been removed, scrape on top LCD), and to top things off, a 5DmkII neck strap!  The box crush was not due to shipping (to me at least) as my shipping box had no damage.

They have agreed to refund my purchase price (when the camera arrives), but I'm still out $63 to ship and insure the thing back to them.

If you scan their neg reviews, you'll see this isn't too isolated.

I picked up a refurb 5D3 from Canon last year for a little over $2200, weird how a year later I still got a screaming deal compared to what is being offered. The camera has run great for me and I'm so glad I picked it up when I did.
