Chances are good that we will see more deals.  Its a way of reducing excess inventory without officially lowering the price.  As long as the economy is slow, Canon is going to have surpluses.

Thanks for the optimism! But, I'm still kicking myself over missing this one... I'll certainly be checking ebay more often now.

I belive we'll see a lot of $3000 and above prices, but not as low as Adorama's.

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

Same here.  I love this camera! :)

I ordered one Sunday and got a message Sunday night. saying that a UPS label had been generated.  A tracking number was included. 

I saw somewhere in the Adorama messages that orders placed on Sunday would be sent out before the holiday.  Unfortunately, my order apparently did not make it out of the building before they locked the doors and went home.  UPS says they still have not received the package.  :(   

Good thing I have plenty of cameras to use while I wait!

Has anyone else been watching their tracking number?

I ordered Saturday afternoon (about 6pm Eastern) and, per UPS tracking, mine is on its way and will be in Colorado Friday.  I was about #515.

I got in mid-day Saturday..in the 400s I think.  Got my tracking number and it should be here Thursday.  I still don't really believe its real.

Maybe B&H will respond with $2,699.00.  Price war!

I think it is possible. Again, I´d like to thank libertyranger, the guy who posted the first link. It was a party!
The last 100 orders:

I am waiting new offers like this. Afterall, I will have to buy the lenses :)

You're welcome!  I'm happy for everyone who saw the post and was able to get one!

Not sure which number I am, but it still hasn't been picked up by UPS.  I won't believe it until I'm holding it in my hands.  That may not be until next week.  It'll be a looooooong weekend.

Definitely me  ::).  I think I was in the 280's on Saturday early afternoon.  Since I'm on the West Coast, UPS tracking says Monday delivery... it will be a V E R Y long weekend for me

Adorama has sold 818 5D Mark III's on ebay alone, which has netted them well over $2,400,000!.. not too shabby.. 100 5D3's were sold alone in the last 9 or so hours of that sale!! and that was when everyone was likely sleeping.

I hope you are not in business. They didn't "net" $2.4 million. The grossed $2.4 million. What they netted was the sale price less wholesale cost, less shipping, less overhead. If they actually made $50 net on each one (which might be more generous than you think) that's about $41,000. That's not bad for a one-day sale, but it's a far cry from $2.4 million and assumes they actually made $50 in profit on each one.

There is obviously a very large group of people who are willing to buy this camera at 2700 bucks, so why can't everyone (B&H, Adorama, and the rest) just drop the price already

No one who missed the temporary price drop will buy the 5D3 now. :P

Everyone will just wait for the next.
