Imported (Grey Market) Canon 5DMk3 w/24-105 for $2600

If you are a fan of grey areas, you may also be a fan of grey market (imported) camera gear 😉 Among the latest eBay Deals, eBay Seller “Get It Digital” (99.5%) is offering the new condition Canon 5D Mark III with 24-105mm f4L IS for $2600 with free shipping, with a limit of one per customer. This does NOT come with a Canon USA warranty. Instead, the seller GetItDigital offers a similar warranty of their own.

The 5DMk3 w/24-105 goes for $3100 at authorized Canon dealers, but they offer a variety of free accessories and promotional rewards, such as B&H Photo and Adorama and Amazonia.

As usual, the trade-off of $500 vs USA warranty and free accessories is up to each individual to make based on their own preferences and circumstances and such.

Speaking of eBay, the current pole position deal of the day over there is the 13.3″ Apple Macbook Pro MF840LL/A (8GB, 256GB) for $1300 with free shipping with a limit of two per customer, offered by eBay seller “digjungle” (99.3%).

No Pre-Orders for Canon 5DS* yet

The new Canon 5DS DSLR duo is the biggest and most expensive new camera of 2015 so far. However, pre-orders are not accepted just yet. Amazon’s estimate says you will be able to pre-order it on 4/30/15. B&H Photo’s page estimates the camera will be available in June 2015. Adorama has a June estimate as well. Needless to say, this is too early, more details and more specifics will become available as we get closer to actual release. In a tech world of near-instant gratification, waiting for months before one can pre-order can feel a bit unusual.
