I haven't seen a lot of 5DIIIs available at any significant savings. At least nothing in the 2,000s. I saved about $600 on mine that was one month old, had a grip and spare battery. The previous owner is a pro, and bought it on the spur of the moment. He sold it as he prefers to stick to upgrading to digital medium format.
I chose the 5D Mk III, because it is up to date. It is the most camera I can get inits class, and won't be supersceeded, or out dated anytime soon. That, and I've always been Canon oriented. I don't need to pay twice as much for a 1Dx for a few more FPS. This should be all of the camera I need for the next few years.
Paid Cash, Wife approved. No remorse.
John's right. Having been a Timberframer myself, that carpenter. . .would be an idiot.
