We now have a few street price specials on lenses, brand new from authorized dealers with a full Canon USA warranty, free shipping, and no tax collected. The prices on the EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM and the EF 500mm f/4L IS II USM are fantastic, they are the lowest street price we’ve seen yet.
While quantities last.
The Canon mail-in rebate on lenses ends January 31st, check out the list of items with street prices.
Many of the recent deals have been on bodies (and body plus printer bundles). Remember, we still have extremely popular street prices on Canon lenses, brand new from Canon authorized dealers with full Canon USA warranty, and free shipping. The Canon mail-in rebates were extended from the Holiday season and expire on January 31st. We’ve been told the rebates won’t be extended in their current form (although we are waiting for solid confirmation of this).
It’s not too late: you don’t need to mail-in the rebate form until March 2nd. As long as you order it during January, you can receive the package after the rebate deadline and still be eligible for the mail-in rebate. You can buy different items and claim multiple rebates; but you can’t claim the rebate on two copies of the same item during this rebate period (which started November 23rd.)
Several readers have already received their EOS 5D Mark III ($2149) and EOS-1D X ($4199) from AllNewShop via eBay‘s on-going sale. They have excellent prices (the lowest we’ve seen), and readers report receiving brand new items as advertised.
The catch is: although the auction (as advertised) is for a grey market / import body, readers report that the store will call and attempt an up-sell to the Canon USA model (claiming that the grey market body is inferior). Do not fall for this. The grey market version is physically identical to the Canon USA version, and is not a different product. Stick to your guns, politely remind the retailer that as per the eBay agreement, they are obligated to sell you this camera body at this price. They will process your order at the eBay stated price, and our readers report that they are shipping Canon USA models with Canon USA warranty cards anyway — win!
(Please note, it’s possible that they really do have both grey bodies and Canon USA bodies, and you may not have the same experience in receiving a Canon USA model.)
As they do eventually process the order, and ship a brand new camera at a fantastic price, this is just an up-sell (not a bait-and-switch). We still think it’s a great deal, but want to warn our readers to expect the call and stay firm during the up-sell. The deals are still live now.
Thanks Chris & Toni for the reader reports. If you also ordered this deal, please comment on what you received in the comments below.
This hot EOS 6D + 24-105mm f/4L IS bundle deal is back! It sold out in 90 minutes on Monday.
Adorama has a bundle of the EOS 6D with 24-105mm f/4L Kit, PIXMA PRO-100 and free paper for $1749.00, after a $650 mail-in rebate ($300 on camera + $350 on combo.)
Click here to check out the deal at Adorama. This is the lowest price we’ve seen for the EOS 6D with 24-105mm f/4L Kit in a bundled form. It’s similar, to a deal seen during Cyber week (although this price is $100 less than last time, and last time had a slightly better printer).
There’s also a similar deal for the EOS 6D (body only) and PIXMA PRO-100 for $1249.00, after a $650 mail-in rebate, which is still an extremely good deal (but not nearly as good a deal as the kit.) You can click here to check out that deal at Adorama.
The Canon mail-in rebates (including this Combo rebate) are extremely reliable, and many readers have already gotten them from the Cyber week sale. If you don’t need a printer, nor want to deal with the extra combo rebate, our street prices are $1829 AR on the EOS 6D with 24-105mm f/4L Kit and $1299 AR on the EOS 6D from authorized Canon dealers.
The 5D Mark III has now dropped in price to the lowest level seen yet ($115 lower than the previous low), brand new, with free shipping: AllNewShop via eBay has the Canon EOS 5D Mark III for $2149.99.
AllNewShop via eBay is not an authorized dealer, but is a reliable unauthorized dealer, the same store as GetItDigital. This is an import and a Canon USA warranty is not guaranteed; the store provides a warranty (but historically Canon will service it anyway.)
AllNewShop via eBay has the Canon EOS-1D X for $4199.99. This is the absolute lowest price we’ve seen it ever for this camera, it beats the previous low by $450.
This is an import / grey market body, which is not guaranteed to come with a Canon USA warranty (although Canon has been historically known to service them anyway.) AllNewShop via eBay is a very reliable unauthorized dealer, the same store as GetItDigital. We would only caution that they have a firm returns policy (if returning for “elective” reasons), so please be sure you want this item before you purchase it.
