When most were whining about the new price of the 5DIII compared to the street price of the 5DII there were a significant number of reminders that the street price of the 5DIII would be significantly less than $3500.

I am guessing $2500 will be its eventual street price

eBay is selling it for 3,192.89. Seems to be a good deal.

Price drop is inevitable, but I did not expect it to be this soon by such amount.

Some place called rythercamera.com has the body only for $2,989.  If I knew that this was not some sort of deceptive sales tactic, I would jump on it.

This caught my eye...5DIII pricing under $3,000! It was inevitable, but so soon? It's $2975.

I don't see their phone number or address under Contact Us. It doesn't look legit to me....NO THANKS.

Suit yourself. I've bought a number of lesser items here. No problems, fast free shipping with tracking.

A couple legit authorized US dealers (Profeel or PhotoVideo4Less) have been selling it in the $3250 range, and have touched as low as $3149. You just have to watch and wait, as ebay prices fluctuate a lot.

I suggest using canonpricewatch -- they track the authorized dealers who sell using ebay too:
