Deals-all-year (99.7% approval) is selling the Canon EOS R body for $1949 for a limited time or until stock runs out.
This is likely a grey market item, but should still be covered by a Canon warranty should you run into issues down the road.
Canon EOS R body $1949 (Reg $2299)
I have bought grey market and had it serviced under warranty by Canon USA for free. There are no guarantees they will but so far I haven't heard of a single instance where Canon USA have denied a genuine warranty claim on a Canon product, though there was a big question mark on one or two of the earlier M cameras. because Canon USA never actually imported them.
Don't forget Canon USA is a wholly owned subsidiary of Canon Japan.
Its not on sale, do you understand gray market??
Mine does up to 1/8000 sec, shutter speed, same as my 5D MK IV. Why do you think its less, is yours different?
Canon is holding the price up longer than expected, I get a discount on all Canon cameras thru my employer, and normally even new models, but no discount on the R or RF lenses.
But his statement about nobody wanting it is spot on.
