OK so I know that when you see what looks like a really good deal on-line its almost always too good to be true.

I have been watching this one place AllTimeTVs.com. The consistently sell the brand new 5d Mark III body for under $3000. I have also seen many reviews on-line and I know its easy for them to fake reviews but the fake reviews are also easy to spot. I just have not been able to find any significant negative feedback regarding this AllTimeTVs.com place. There are plenty of reviews on-line but just nothing bad.

Has anyone here ever purchased anything from them? Their prices on bodies and most lenses are great. Prices on accessories, grips, batteries. etc. are very average compared to Amazon.

I have also seen the 5d Mark III for sale at even lower prices than at AllTimeTvs but all their feedback came back as negative, dishonest etc. You have to watch the independent reviews... its hard for these place to just screw people over and expect no one to bark about it on the internet.

I think I'd stick to a more trusted site personally.

I think any place without a reasonable physical address is a red flag

What you save in dollars, you'll probably pay for in frustration if something goes wrong with the order.
