Hey All,

Brand New Canon 5d MkIII for $2549.99.

Link (external link)

Just stumbled upon this deal on e-bay from BigValueInc. Not sure how many they have in stock or which warranty they are providing, but thought I'd post. Good Luck!

I bought one from them about 2 weeks ago. "New, never opened" turned out to be a broken up kit (retail box with 24-105L but missing the lens). Zero shutter count and USA warranty card, etc, etc. I'm fine with it because it saved so much money. Shipping was reasonable at ~1 week.

Ok so you have a warranty card. What happens if you do a claim and Canon needs to see your receipt? BigValue = not a Canon dealer. Do you still get warranty service?

The chances of needing a repair on a new body that will cost more than the savings from this deal are slim to none. If the Amazon deal was still active and I was looking to buy, I'd go with Amazon. But as it stands now, this is a sweet deal and the only one out there AFAIK.

And this note is clearly posted on their ad:

NOTE: The Canon EOS 5D Mark III Body may come in a kit box. The Canon EOS 5D Mark III Body for sale is 100% Brand New, Never Used. Lens has been removed from Kit box and sold on a separate auction.

The warranty card is not important, you can even throw it away. Whenever I sent in a camera or lens that is still under warranty, they always want a copy of the receipt.

Yeah, I never have ever sent a warranty card in for service... Always just a receipt and my CPS paperwork. I had service done recently from which the receipt was from a NON-Canon Dealer... They could care less and serviced it with no problem.

Lens Rentals also has mentioned Canon never gave anybody issues they know of from non-Canon dealers for warranty work. Unlike Nikon, for example who will not.

This question has been asked over and over and over. The consensus is that if you have a receipt that matches a valid serial number, then yes it will be service. It's interesting that this is always brought up but people will buy a white box lens or camera from a seller on most forums where they won't receive a receipt. In that case, item may be brand new but hmmm no receipt.

Yah...I know you'll get service. It's warranty service I'm questioning. :rolleyes:

If you are referring to refurbished items when you say "white box", then yes why not buy one? They come with a one year warranty AND a receipt. Why would it not come with a receipt? That makes no sense.

I was referring to warranty service. Knock on wood, I've never had a lens or camera that required it. White box refers to "brand new" taken from a kit. Note that I said buy from a seller on forums, indicating a private individual, which would mean the only receipt they have is from when they originally bought it. Of course, they could make a copy of it and send it to you, but most aren't willing to supply their personal information.
