Yeah, except a brand new 5D Mark III is running 3,299 with Canon's $200 rebate that's in affect until March 30. Factor in Sales/Use Tax on that, and the extra 9 months of warranty just doesn't seem worth it.

You can get one for $2,949 brand new on BH with free shipping and no tax with a 16GB CF card for free.

5d III -- $3000 shipped to my door (Hawaii) from B&h.

$2500 (refurb) to my door...

Looks like I can afford to buy that 135 f2 L instead of the 50mm 1.8 II..!!

For anyone that has bought refurb, would you happen to know Abouts how long it takes for the order to leave the Canon warehouse/center/facto​ry...? My order is showing "Status: Pending Shipment" "Shipping Date: N/A"

Placed my order on the 15th March...

I know, I need to calm down LoL

If you placed your order after 12:30pm Eastern on Friday March 15, it will probably be processed today and shipped out this evening.

Looking at some of my previous orders...
Ordered on a Thursday morning... Arrived on Tuesday.
Ordered on a Monday afternoon.... Arrived on Thursday.
Ordered on a Saturday... Arrived on Wednesday.

They are known for holding orders from new customers until they confirm the order details over the phone.

If this is your first order with Canon Direct, you may want to give them a call. Otherwise it may take them a couple days to attempt to contact you.

Picked one up. Now I'm scared of the word refurbished. Wasn't even a thought in my mind until I hit purchase.

I'd rather pay an extra $300 for a brand new one that comes with a 12-month warranty.

I have insurance that cost $5 a month that is zero deductible, and covers anything (stops working, I drop it, leave it in a cab). I don't really care if the camera comes with a warranty or not.

What insurance is this? I want in.
