Amazon has the same price and you'll get 2% back!

According to canonpricewatch (http://www.canonpricewatch.com/product/03868/Canon-EOS-5D-Mark-III-price.html),

All 3 of B&H, Adorama, Amazon have it for $2990 (minus 2% rewards, so $2930)
Profeel (auth dealer) through eBay has it for $2979 (minus 2% ebay cash, so $2919)
BuyDig has it for $2975

eBay is the cheapest if you regularly use it, then B&H or Adorama or Amazon if you can use the rewards in January, and finally BuyDig has the lowest price. Phew, that's complicated!

Always check the Ebay Deals of the Day. Beach and other authorized US dealers have been having pretty consistent sales every day.

Canon Direct Store has refurbished bodies for $2799. http://shop.usa.canon.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product_10051_10051_309850_-1 I've never purchased refurbs from Canon, but have for other companies. I'm going to be purchasing soon, but don't have an immediate need.

However you'll pay about $200 in taxes. I know in Ohio I wouldn't pay taxes on an Amazon purchase.

Does anyone know if the refurb body is included in the loyalty program? If so, it would be 20% off the refurb price. If I were in the market for a new camera, I would call the loyalty number before I bought anywhere else.

B&H are the best to deal with. There are often "unpublished" deals to be had too. Call and ask, or email Henry as he casn often sweeten the pot.

It is NOT included.
Plus you pay tax, so it's the same price as a brand new mail ordered one...

I should look for Henry's info. I have dealt with Helen at Adorama a lot and she is great. Looks like they are $3200 vs $3000 for the B and H. I bet they will match.

I should have waited little longer. It is $2599 on Ebay right now. http://www.ebay.com/itm/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=230892739424&item=230892739424&lgeo=1&vectorid=229466

Wow, $2550 w/ebay bucks for a camera like this. It's not even a black friday sale... IMO this is the current price for the camera...too many sales like this to think they are special deals.
