I was one of the lucky few who got the $2800 5D3 deal from Beach Camera...  but in a mere couple weeks I went from thinking I got the best deal ever to thinking I got ripped off by $50.   :o  Can't say I'm upset though - at the time the $2800 deal was the best one yet.  Hopefully a similar significant price drop happens with the 24-70 II in a few months!

USD 2745 is about the correct price for a 5D III. About equal to or slightly less than what a Nikon D800 costs.
It will soon be the general price level, once all those orders by people who are willing to pay any price are filled.

With the Nikon D600 out Canon is going to suffer big time if they do not cut prices very rapidly ... and if the 6D will really be as crappy as the leaked specs indicate. I just love it. Got a 7D ... and do not mind waiting a little longer for my 5D for USD 2500.

Deals like this are typically one day or less.  Someone will be doing it again, so be ready.
As long as the global downturn in the economy continues, there will be bargains.

I paid $3499 in full for my 5D3 a couple months ago. I don't feel sour towards these new lower prices at all.

i'm so tempted to pull the trigger. Whats even better, its from a store i purchase stuff from without problems. Now, i just have to sneak it by the wife.  :-\
I see you have the same problem as me.  :-\

whats sad/funny for me, i tell her about how much i save, she just gives me that look. damn, i can't win. :'(

I see you both have the same problem I have =)  and no... the " but babe, I'm saving X amount of $" argument doesn't work with her either!

As soon as I saw the post and checked it out, I had to sit patiently and wait for my husband to return from an errand.  I pretty much jumped on him like an overeager labrador as soon as he walked through the door to see if I could go ahead with it and he had the nerve to say that he had to "think about it"... thus walking to his "office" aka, the bathroom.

After standing outside outside the door tapping my foot, I just decided to make an executive decision and go for it.

After he came out, 20 minutes later- I might add-, he said "Sweetie, I know you've been wanting this for a few years now, why don't you go ahead?"

I just smiled and said "Thank you"  ;)

Sorry you missed out this time around JasonATL, at least you know you have permission for the next time :)

Reselling mine on eBay as of Wednesday, taking offers at 3200 shipped anywhere in the lower 48 overnight.

Honestly this has more to do with the Jewish holiday. Adorama probably doesn't sell much between now and Tuesday night anyways they boost sales with this deal and don't offend canon because it's sold through their eBay store.

+1... me about a month ago. I love this camera! The purchase is worth it.

Hey, any of you used their Bill Me Later payment method? I could be wrong but it says in the payment section that even through Bill Me Later, you have to pay in full (the full amount of $2700+) at the time of purchase. Or am I reading it wrong? :/

Sigh, it seems that offer is over now.

For future reference, you do not have to pay the full amount at time of purchase when checking out with Bill Me Later.  The purpose of Bill Me Later is to let you pay later.  Sounds like you didn't put an order because you didn't know for sure which is a total bummer.  Hopefully another deal comes along and you can pick yourself up one.

Just got my tracking number.  It will likely be picked up tomorrow though.  I guess the Adorama guys are all working hard today trying to fill those orders.

Since Adorama does not close online sales over the Jewish holidays, how do you figure they make any difference??  B&H closes, but not Adorama.

Same. Crazy that they processed so many so swiftly. I was in the 600 range with my order. Now I get to watch the announcements tomorrow and see if I'm going to keep this body or sell it.
