Why so many 5D MK III's for sale?

I see no evidence for this claim, at least here in Australia. Has anybody got proof from a reliable source? Links?

"My mate said" and "I know people who..." does not count as evidence.

=Ingerson"PCD";1505591​6]Is it having issues?

I cant seem to get any out of focus photos with mine like with my old 5DII

I see tons of 5Dc and 5DIIs for sale on Craigslist in my area and maybe 2-3 5DIIIs

I guess it means that more people are upgrading and dumping old gear ;)

It's most likely a U.S. only thing because of Adorama and Beach Camera's sales in the last month. Lots of people just going for a quick buck. While the actual margins are slim if you go for volume you can make a good amount (if your credit allows it). Certainly not the most cost effective way to make money though.

Wouldn't there be warranty issues selling over-seas?

Warranty is not transferable period, even in the USA. I'd never purchase a 2nd hand camera unless it was at least 25% cheaper than what I could get it new.

Yes, it does leave a bad taste. By using credit to insert yourself as a middleman and take a profit you are artificially keeping the price higher than it should be for everyone else who just wants to buy a camera or lens and use it. It's bad enough that we have to compete with people who won't save and instead use credit to buy everything.

Don't you see that free flowing credit makes the price of everything higher?

How much do you think a car would cost if everyone had to save up for it instead of getting a 5 to 7 year loan?

If a price is too high, don't buy. If the price goes up, how "artificial" is it? We live in a world where the people building our goods are often children earning next to nothing. We're far beyond credit card price effects.

Did you pay cash for your house too? My family uses credit for everything because of the rewards, but pay off every month (only debt is mortgage... 22 months left).

I figure if you can re-bay something and earn a living off of it because of a line of credit, congratulations! I flip bike stuff all the time. My team deal on bikes is so good that I can buy a new bike every year, race the tar out of it, then make a bit off of it when I sell it.

The 5 DIII is just an amazing camera. Never in my life have I had so many keepers. Gorgeous pictures with all my lenses. An auto focus that makes it difficult to take a bad picture even in poor light. Ability to take excellent photos even at high ISO's makes natural night photos with flash take on a new dimension as you are able to get the ambiance of the surroundings in night photos. By far the happiest I have been with a digital camera ever!

I highly doubt that. What if someone bought me a camera as a surprise gift and it wasn't under my name? I'm sure that if you have original receipt you are fine.

The first thing is they check to see if it is not a grey market purchase. If you have a receipt,they repair it within the time period.

Second page, right above Canon U.S.A.:

"THIS LIMITED WARRANTY SHALL NOT EXTEND TO ANYONE OTHER THAN THE ORIGINAL PURCHASER OF THE PRODUCT, OR THE PERSON FOR WHOM IT WAS PURCHASED AS A GIFT, AND STATES YOUR EXCLUSIVE REMEDY."

So all you have to do is show a receipt and tell them it was a gift. When you get the receipt, make a copy of it and write down it was a gift. Warranty is still intact.
