p.1 #1 · Speculation of Black Friday / Cyber Monday Deals



This is my first year with an investment in DSLR gear from Canon. I know that they have lots of deals on their Rebel and xxD lines but do they ever do discounts on more expensive items?

I'm basically looking for your past experience with Canon black friday / cyber monday to help me dream about this year.

I haven't seen much for higher end camera stuff in the past. Typically tv's and computers and point and shoots are big black Friday items.

Last year there were some stupidly awesome sales leading up to Christmas. I remember 70-200L II got into $1950 territory, and 35L was $1100 one day. Those weren't Black Friday deals, just part of the holiday piggy-bank-smashing craziness.

I'm waiting for a black friday sale on a 5D mk3, my price is $2500. If not then I won't buy, I'll just wait. The nikon D600 + 2 lens kit is selling at Costco for $2900, now that a good deal. At $3500 body only is asking people to switch to Nikon if you don't like Canon's price.

I'll wait until XMAS. The usual Black Friday sales are nothing special.

Canon had what looked like a fire sale last year. Too bad I'm mostly set on my gear, otherwise there were some very good deals.

Many stores already have Black Friday ads available online if you do a search.

Best Buy, Costco, Target, etc. Nothing really interesting for DSLR so far. Do a search.

I've been keeping my eyes on the ads, thanks for the heads up! I'm excited to see if there's anything Canon has to offer this year.

You can also watch this Fat Wallet forum:

http://www.fatwallet.com/forums/hot-deals/camera/

I think that is where I originally found the Black Friday links.

Most recent sales have been on previous versions - Canon T3i, Nikon D5100, D3100 - or Point & Shoot.

Good luck! (And share if you find anything interesting)

I wouldn't count on anything like last year. Canon caved into the demands of B&M stores with the MAP pricing and the only deals you'll see are for gray market gear.
