The grip is as cheap as $300. 5D Mark III from authorized dealers on eBay has been as low as $3149-$3200. Thus $3499 is a reasonable deal, but not outstanding.

I have been watching sales of 5D3 on eBay for few months now. Most decent deals have been around $3050-$3250ish...

I think we'll soon see $2999 from major US authorized dealers...Got to! :cool:

Some of these deals you guys are comparing to are not from companies with a reputation like Beach Camera. Compare Amazon, B&H, Adorama, etc, and this is like getting a free grip and $50 memory card. You can get a 5Dmk3 from companies like "Big Value, Inc", but pardon me if that seems like a risky place to send over 3 grand to.

The company I was referring to was Profeel/PMIdigital, which is an authorized dealer and has a very solid reputation and service. I'd argue as good as the top stores.

No...I was never once haggled by this retailer. I have bought upward of $30K from them in the past few years.

Taking photos with a fancy camera does not make me a photographer.

I know how you feel...I try to have a list of trusted retailers handy, so when these things come, then I woud not hestitate if they have a good deal on something I want.
