(1/5) > >>

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

Interesting... but still out of my reach - unfortunately.

Upon further "shopping", I see that 60D prices are also falling, and that there are two "versions".  US Retail, and NOT...  Of course, the NOT pricing is lower.

SCORE!  We Win!

It is important to note, they are not a Canon authorized dealer.

And they are a fairly well known scam/upseller shop. Sure, you'll order the 5dIII, then you'll get the call telling you the battery only lasts 30mins and you need the extended battery with service plan (for only $179.99!)...oh, and their unbranded 16GB CF card for $179.99 too. If you don't upsell, your order gets cancelled as they don't have it in stock anymore. If you do get the camera, the warranty is through another shady company, and it will likely be grey market.

Listing a popular item for 15% off retail when nobody else is doing discounts is exactly how you hook people into a scam.
