The Canon 70-200mm f2.8L IS II USM currently goes for $2000 in new condition at authorized dealers. If you are comfortable with refurbished with a one year Canon USA warranty, you can get it for $1679.20 by the official Canon USA Online Store.
And we are finally back, and back to the eBay Deals where the GetItDigital eBay store (99.7%) is offering the imported grey-market new condition Canon 5D Mark III body only for $1900 with free shipping with a one year warranty provided by GetItDigital (not Canon USA). Limit five per customer.
At authorized Canon USA dealers, in new condition, this goes for $2500, along with a variety of free accessories and extras and promotional rewards, such as B&H Photo and Adorama (multiple bundles with different freebies) and Focus Camera and Amazon itself.
Somewhere in the middle between the two price-wise is an open-box version for $2250 at Adorama (no freebies but retains the one year Canon USA warranty).
This particular offer ended with 150 units sold, but fear not, there should many more 70D offers in the future at various retailers…

Of speed-demon interest, among the latest refurbished Canon DSLR specials at the official Canon USA store, with a one year Canon USA warranty, you can get the manufacturer refurbished Canon 1D X DSLR for $4239~.
Optionally they have a finance offer that gets you 0% interest for 12 months if you make 12 equal payments. The offer is subject to credit approval. See details over there.
Strategically, this squeezes right in the middle of imported ($3900) and new condition at authorized dealers ($4600 with free accessories). For those options, check our earlier post.

The Canon EF-M Lens Adapter Kit for Canon EF and EF-S Lenses, model 6098B002, is new condition as a White Box product, is offered for $32 by a couple of 3rd-party sellers with the order fulfilled by Amazon so it is eligible for free 2-day Prime shipping. Non-Prime members need an order of $35+ to get free shipping (three of these tiny AB camera cases will do it, currently $1.47 each).
White box is often used to describe situations when a lens or something else is removed from a kit or a bundle and sold separately. When a kit is significantly discounted, some retailers “break it” (aka the term “broken kit”), and sell, for example, the camera and lens separately for a slightly higher price.
PS: “broken kit” is a rather unfortunate term, how many consumers will get excited when they hear something they are about to buy described as “broken”?
Adorama is bundling a free Audio Technica mic with the purchase of one of these 17 cameras.

No coupon and no rebate needed. While this promotion is running (you will see it mentioned on the individual camera product pages), Adorama will include the free Audio Technica mic (and other eligible freebies) automatically.

These have been added to the growing list of New Lenses in 2015 tracking page.
