« on: March 19, 2012, 08:01:54 PM »
I wonder how come B&H have the BG-E11 Battery Grip for 5D Mark III  for only $349.00? Compare to Amazon $490.00, that's $141.00 cheaper.

Its $349 I confirmed it at my local shop. Pretty smashin deal if you ask me to have more controls than my 1dm3 in vertical portrait mode shooting.

It's because the original press release said the price on the grip was $490. That quickly changed as soon as B&H started pre-orders (around 3/6, I think? That's when I pre-ordered).

Amazon just dropped the price of the grip to 358.20. Seemingly random price, I know. But there it is for anyone going the amazon route. They also finally dropped the price on the gps receiver to 278.65.

It will probably take a couple of months.

Some people detest Amazon for how the MkIII was handled, and then others (such as myself) stay loyal. I've never had an issue with Amazon and will gladly wait a month or two for the grip if it means I get the first-hand tried and true excellent service from amazon that I've come to expect. I also don't see near the level of demand for the grip and can't see it being to difficult to acquire compared to the 5D body.

I quoted you by mistake :) I meant to quote "dturano" asking about the 3rd party ones. Sorry about that.

No harm done, David!
DHL, I'd not be surprised to see a few start popping up in a little over a week with them widely available in about two weeks. Assuming the late April date still holds true.

And with Amazon, they had the MSRP for so long, that the people that did want the grip ordered it from a lot of other places instead of Amazon.  So they probably did not get as many orders for it.  I ordered from them once it dropped to $358 because I had gift cards and points.

That is exactly my thought process. I personally ordered as soon as it went up hoping they'd adjust the price to msrp. So I'm hoping I'll not have to wait long.

Has anybody received an order update from Amazon? CR guy posted that the grips would be coming soon, but I've gotten no update from Amazon yet.
