Last Call: Canon 5D Mark III bundle for $2,999
B&H Photo, Adorama and Amazon are offering a Canon 5D Mark III DSLR bundle for $2,999.
Depending on the store, the content of the bundle changes slightly but mainly consists of a free camera bag, 32 GB memory card, and a battery.
I was told that Canon will start enforcing their MAP policy and these special prices will end in 24 hours.

Canon 5D Mark III bundle special price:
B&H Photo | Adorama | Amazon

The regular price for the Canon 5D Mark III DSLR body is $3,399.

Another place is Best Buy. They aren't showing the price but it's also $2999 there. Although you might not be able to get bundles like B&H and Adorama, you can get either 5% back through rewards or your normal 2% rewards with 18mo 0% interest.

Does this mean the 5D4 is on its way?

Is Canon's M.A.P. thing a button or dial that they turn on and off, depending on circumstances?

Everyone loves to save a buck of course, but I expect sine wave price fluctuations from the crackpot airline industry (services) not a stalwart like the imaging industry (goods).

Am I nuts? (neither PetKal nor "The Colwell" should answer that)

This only happens when you start getting PIXMA Pro printers for free and the body has dropped to around $2500 (for the 5D3)

That happened within a couple months of the 5D3 release. Beach was dumping pallets of dusty 5D3's which could be had for $2600 or less depending on how many you bought/sold.

Gotta love it when Canon plays favorites with the big guys. Try going to a local camera shop and asking them to match the price, and you'll find that the big guys are selling for under small dealer cost. Canon gives them a special price, then looks the other way when they violate the MAP dealer agreement. Talk about Canon throwing small business under the bus. This is one of the reasons why small dealers are going away.

No, the Sony has arrived. Time to start dumping the 5D3's they were expecting to sell to the LS & High MP crowd.

5D III is not exactly new, so it's not surprising that the price is finally decreasing.

Oh like I said the price has been fluctuating since just after it's release. When the pallets start collecting too much dust they have a fire sale. Genius.

I worked in retail for years and for products with a MAP requirement the wholesaler often discounts certain products for clearance or to reduce stock. They send out a new price list with temporary MAP with a termination date.

The 5D3 is still best camera in its class in my opinion. Especially when considering you can pare it with the 600EX-RT flashes.

If they didn't give these dealers a special price, they would be taking a loss. These companies are clearly in business to make money, not lose it.

Bummer. I went to BH and it says $3,400 for the body.

Any rebates running right now. Have a friend looking to pick one up but she's pretty new to the photo game so I'm trying to find the best price right now.

It is still overpriced for what it is, even at $2999. But that is just my .02 and one of many reasons I am considering dumping my 5D2 and just keeping my 1D3 for SLR work.

Unless they fix the AF pause-delay issue, I will never buy another 5d3.

The delay is, as I have stated before, quite dealbreaking for me. There is no way to get any lens to focus quite as fast as with the 5d2 because of the pausing behavior. The 5d2 locks faster in ALL light in One-Shot. It just does. Press focus button, instalock with 35L/50L... And the color balance of the 5d3 is yucky next to the 5d2. The only two things I like about the 5d3 are...lots of outer points and silent shutter mode.

I suppose I'm going to be getting a SSD for my D800 files next year...

I haven't noticed any AF delay with the 5D3. The Af is surely faster faster in low light that the 5D2 I had. While I do wish the MK3 would have been a bit less $ I'm still very satisfied.
