I think the fact that they feel there are only 48 states in the USA should make their approval rating 0%!

Does anyone know the Canon warranty status on these items? Gray market? I couldn't find anything other than 6aves' own 1-year parts and 90-day labor warranty. I know how good Canon service is...I don't really know what 6aves service is...do they farm it back out to Canon?

They used the term "lower 48 states"...that's a pretty common and well used term, and they certainly don't think that there are "only" 48 states. They only ship to the lower 48, and not to Alaska or Hawaii, because they always cover shipping, it's free for every purchase.

I wondered the same thing. I just figured the money saved would help out with repairs if needed, but for a brand new model, I certainly would hope that I would not have to send it in for years to come anyway.

I know this didn't help answer your question, it was just my reasoning. If anyone does know, I would love to gain insight as well.

Blah! They sold out the sale overnight. It said there were 16 views an hour, and they sold nearly 60 of em. Oh well. Guess I gotta wait for the next sale.

Right. There are 57 states, after all. My President told me so.

When I bought my 5DIII from B&H a year ago December, it was $2975, and that included a 16GB SanDisk Extreme CF card and a 3rd party LP-E6 battery (which the camera bitches about since its most recent firmware upgrade, but still operates with).

It's interesting that B&H's price has floated back up to over $3,100, although the current offer includes a couple more free goodies (bag & monopod), in addition to storage card & spare battery. I wonder if this is in response to higher demand or the result of a poorer position of the dollar relative to the yen.

I'll buy a 2nd 5DIII when the price settles down to around $2,250 or so, at which time I'll retire my 5D Classic.

I would think the $3100 price is simply because post-christmas sales are finally ending, now that were into February. Short-term exchange rate fluctuations don't filter down into product prices that quickly. It takes a longer settled trend for exchange rate differences to result in meaningful price movements, or say for a brand to move the location of its manufacturing.
