How'd you manage that? Did you also buy a printer? I've used BuyDig many times, but see the 5D III listed as $3,299 on their site.

Same question here... If I can get one for $2800, I might spring for it...

Just got mine on Ebay $2886.06 from bigvalueinc. 5D Markiii body only. Everything good except one small important detail.

It says "All brand new Canon USA warranty" but no warranty card included.

Will contact them tomorrow and see what is forthcoming.

Print these adds that are not ebay and take them to Best Buy for a price match. I got mine for $2804 but I did have to pay sales tax.

Does best buy price match non-authorized retailers?

Avoid the gimmicks and questionable dealers. Take a look at these recent threads on Canon's MAP, and the responses from Henry at B&H. Then do what he says, and call or email them. You probably won't get a $2800 price, but you won't be too far from it. And if you don't live in NY, you won't pay sales tax. And you'll be buying a Canon USA warranty product from a well respected and certainly authorized Canon dealer.

Thank you Henry and B&H...

Missed those threads. Thanks for the pointers. Looks like I'll be emailing a few retailers after my next paycheck...

Best buy matched East Coast TV for me as well 2 weeks ago at $2,804. To all the doubters out there, PM me and I will send you a copy of my receipt.

As a follow up to my previous post, yes, BestBuy did price match EastCoast TVs pricing with no question. When I got back to my office, I had an emailed quote from Henry at B&H. His price, including all the "extras" was a better deal than $2718 plus tax from ECTV. I returned the camera to BB and happily placed my business with B&H. They have never yet left me unhappy as a client, and that means a lot to me. Email him, he's more than fair.

I emailed B&H last week on this, and got the same 3299 is the lowest price. Don't really want the add-ons that the major retailers are throwing in - maybe it is their way of trying help us, but how many camera bags do I need? The memory card and extra battery might be nice but I have bunches of memory cards and I use a 7D now so have lots of batteries that work with the 5Dmk3.

I understand now it is not B&H's fault. I've bought tons of stuff from them over the last few years and this bothered me a lot when I received the email.

I've currently got an order in with someone listing it lower with USA warranty, but as described elsewhere that may-or-may-not be accurate. It is scheduled for delivery tomorrow, it will be a game-time decision on whether I accept it or not.

Edit: Well crap. I just saw Prevelige's note. My email from B&H is dated November 13, and their suggestion (when I said I didn't need all the extras and can I just buy the camera for less) was that I should sell the extras.

You might want to call B&H again. I got mine last week and paid considerably less than 3299. None of that extra fluff, just the important stuff in the box, like a USA warranty card...

Another customer happy with B&H. I'll bet if you stick with them you will end up with a better (and safer) deal than you can get elsewhere, everything figured in.

Just found the 5D3 for $2,679 at 42nd, here's the link

http://www.42photo.com/pd-productid-106517-k-canon_eos_5d_mark_iii_223_megapixel_digital_camera_body_only.htm

Edited post:
The bad reviews are not my personal experiences with 42nd, I have purchased bodies, lenses and filters since my film days...sad to see times have changed so dramatically.

I'll def call or email Henry at B&H...appreciate the tip!

^^ Whole string of 1 star out of 5 (worst) ratings on Yelp:

http://m.yelp.com/biz/42nd-street-photo-new-york-3

Basically selling grey market, slimy practices, strong attempt to upswell you to US body, sell warranty, etc by all kinds of lies imaginable.

Also look at Reseller Ratings. They bribe unhappy customers to try to get them to change negative ratings.

Spend the extra $50-$100 and go with a reputable dealer! Save yourself a lot if anxiety and stress.

As Henry said in some other threads, email B&H for their best price. See if they will match the $2,886 eBay sale, or another lower price.
