There is one that are listed on Canon's authorized dealer list (and I remember I got my 40D, 5dmark II, 7D from them back when bing throwing out cash)
is pmidigital , right now list body as $3,267.75.
The receipt is "PROFEEL MARKETING, INC."
I have my 7D service without problem.


Amazon.com is selling it for $3249. 42nd Street Photo is selling it for $3079 and Best Price Photo is selling it for $2899. These are Amazon and amazon sponsored vendors.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007FGYZFI/ref=s9_simh_gw_p421_d3_g421_i1?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_r=1H0CGBR91EWHB419N19J&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=470938631&pf_rd_i=507846


Not for long, I think it will be around $3000. Do you think that is a fair price for a 5D III?


The Best Price Photo 5D III has the USA Warranty.

Today at amazon: body only in stock for $3349 with free shipping, kit backordered but listed at $4099




And about my 5D2 vs 5D3 decision: I woulnd't hold the 5D2 for 5 years, just one or two. Over that period, I think the 5D3 will fall in price faster than the 5D2. Because the D800 is a lot better and is selling for $3000.
(If it doesn't, I'll just wait for the next generation, for me the 5D3 is not worth a $1500 premium over the 5D2; also, I've decided to wait for the next generation before switching brands: anybody can have a mishap...)

A fair price for the 5D3 is around $2800.

I would gladly pay $3500 or more, if the 5D3 offered a bump in IQ, resolution and DR.

You know.. like the D800 does..  :-X

That's a funny video..."yeah, but I've got a 1d"?.

also, when I finished that video on YouTube, i noticed on the same page there was a hilarious video of Ricky gervais and Gordon Ramsey that's worth watching....gervais is a comic genius

I gladly did pay $3500 for awesome AF, high ISO and a great all-around camera...which the D800 isn't.

Have you ever put your hands on these cameras & do side by side comparision?

Why not jump to D800 while it has better IQ, resolution and DR? Why wait for 5D III to come down?

I'd be interested to know how many of the mk3 bashers here actually own or have used one?  Just saying

If bestpricephoto.com was Canon authorized dealer, I would jump in for 2900.  You don't really get warranty from Canon if you buy it from a non-authorized dealer.

Doesn't matter where you buy, it's still an inventory unit produced by Canon.  They get their markup from the
initial sale to a distributor, to a dealer or direct channel (where they get the dealer's share also).  The pricing
on the 5DMkIII is Canon's call - but a Nikon 800 at $2999 is appealing to a number of current Canon  users.
As Canon releases more MarkII lenses with a 100% price increase from the "older" models - buying all new
lenses for an 800 is not as terrifying as it once was (and still is!),

Well, i just got my 3,099$ mk3 from evil bay. Shot some High ISo B&W's to see the cameras limits and was just blown away. Usable 51,200 ISO compared to 6400 on the 7D! Just shocked. :o

Good enough for a 4x6 print and thats fine for ISO 51,200!

I sent these guys an email about 24 hours ago asking about the warranty situation.  No answer yet.  Bet I don't get one.

I was all set to buy the 5DIII from B&H for $3350, but it's back to $3500 now for some reason. Amazon is back to $3500 now too. What gives? I'm definitely not buying it without the warranty. Anybody know another place to get it for around the $3350 mark that is authorized by Canon?
