This is the price it should be.

Until it reaches $2700 I won't be buying. I don't make money from my gear so I can wait. I'd love to own a 5D3 but it's pretty low on the general household needs/wants at $3499 Can +13% HST (as in $4000).

Wow, they've sold 417 so far. That's over a million dollars worth in just half a day.

Sales tax for NY buyers even though it is shipping from NJ

Ha ha. What it means is I need to watch the Daily Deals and see if the 24-70II miraculously appears so I can save some coin.


Ha... I already have my eBay alerts set up for a cheap 24-70 MkII but suspect we won't see any deals on that for a while

453 now. The number is already much bigger than previous deals. Wonder how many units available this time.

Maybe they forgot to keep and eye on sales number. I hope they have the bodies to cover this.

I guess a lot of people who bought the camera in the last 30 days for higher price may still jump on this one and return their last purchase.

As I predicted....just a few months earlier at about $2700. Now this camera gets a price tag which is more reasonable. It will drop further - the camera is not in high demand I guess.

I got in! I can't figure out how to tell what number I was, but there were 'more than 10' left when I bought mine back at around 130 central time. Of course, Ebay managed to dig an old address out of their file someplace and communicate that to them...so hopefully I can get a hold of Adorama and make sure to get this shipped to the right place. I don't really want to buy a camera for the owners of my old house.

I'd hope its correct that people suggest the camera will drop to this price regularly. I doubt it though. It doesn't seem to be sinking in that these deals are Ebay subsidized. When we start to regularly see deals like this through the websites of these shops, that might be a true portent of an imminent permanent price drop.

I still can hardly believe its real. I'd kind of already decided that even if the 6D comes true, the MKIII would be worth the extra cost if I could get in on one of these deals. Woo hoo! (fingers crossed its not a dream!)

I cant imagine that they have 500+ of these things. That seems like an awful big shipment. Maybe someone forgot to set a cap. Granted they are a large store, but it just seems like a lot. I got in before it hit 200, so hopefully everyone who ordered one can get it

Hey, it's only $50 more than it should have been at release, what do you know....this is what happens when a camera isn't selling well, the price comes down to reality.

Inventory, profit margin, even a loss can be applied to "taxes" which equates to ending profits. None of these shops are a cash basis business...the photo show is but a few days away as are holiday sales, new stuff will be here soon as will be the yearly migration to the bling...but the best deals are in Jan/Feb when last yrs inventories must be cleared before the corp taxman arrives

I don't feel let down by Canon. I just have sound business practice.

Very happy why thank you. The photos from two summer trips and a many locally in the past 6 months are well worth it for me. Sure I would like to get the $750 back, but not at the cost of photos taken in the last 6 months.

Technology depreciates. No point in rubbing it in ;-)
