Found this through Amazon. I'm not familiar with them so do your own checking.

Just a heads up, Ryther Camera is not a USA authorized dealer.

Took a quick look, I don't see them listed on the Canon authorized dealer list.

Who cares if they are authorized?

I don't know about you, but for me reliable customer support is very important. $3k is a lot of money and i'd rather not risk losing it because I can't contact a dude from ebay that sold me a broken $3k camera

I have purchased heaps of new and used gear, selectively, and never had a repair. At this stage I am so many thousands ahead of Canon retail price that I could afford huge repairs and still come out on top.

LOL. Well, go ahead and try to buy from anyone you want then. There's a lot of so called "retailers" out there selling the 5D Mark III for "$2,000" and the 7D for "$699". You'll quickly learn why it's important to buy from authorized dealers and reputable retailers.

When I hear this sort of talk it usually strikes me as something a dealer would post. Nobody in this forum could be naive enough to be dealing with retailers.

Their reseller rating seems to be good:

Hmmm. Thinking about pulling the trigger. That's a good price.

I talked to them -- that price is for a gray market 5DIII with their warranty.

If you search for Canon 5D and scroll WAAAAY down, you will find this link for the "Body only - USA Retail Kit" for $3299 (still not a bad price.)

read other reviews as well, the positive ones look shady... as if they were written by ryther camera employees.

Yeah, that's what I figured. Too good to be true. Went with Amazon instead.
