Only two days after announcement, we’re pleased to have found a tempting 7D Mark II pre-order deal — with a catch.
Camera Canada, a reputable Canadian authorized Canon dealer, has the EOS 7D Mark II and EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM for $2298 Canadian Dollars (approximately $2139.00 US dollars after shipping, given current exchange rates).
This is a fantastic deal because Canadian cameras have been historically supplied with a Canon USA & Canada warranty card that is valid for Canon USA warranty. As the 7D Mark II pre-orders for $1799 in the US, it is like getting the EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM for only $340. This is a lens that is regularly $999 (and that’s only after a recent $500 price drop). That is an incredible savings.
Our readers report paying no tax, duty, or other custom fees when purchasing from Camera Canada. Click here to check out the deal at Camera Canada. Since this is a pre-order, you won’t be charged until your order ships (if you use a credit card), just place an order to be on their list.
This is one of several official pre-order deals that Canon is running exclusively in Canada.
The hottest 5D Mark III deal ever: ElectronicsValley via eBay has the Canon EOS 5D Mark III with EF 24-105mm f/4L IS Kit for only $2899.99. This is the lowest price we’ve ever seen on a brand new (import) kit. The previous low was $3080 during Black Friday 2013. This is today’s eBay Frenzy deal.
A white-box 24-105mm typically goes for $600, so this is like getting a 5D Mark III for only $2299 — an incredible price.
Who is ElectronicsValley via eBay, and are they reputable? Some sleuthing shows they are the same company as BigValueInc, an unauthorized dealer who has been a source of reliable deals over the last few years. They have a 98.9% feedback score on high-value Canon items.
This is an import version (physically identical to the US model, but not intended for the US market). A Canon USA warranty is not guaranteed, so the store provides a warranty instead. Compare with our street price of $3299 AR from an authorized dealer. Transactions on eBay have been generally safe as you can rely on eBay Protection, PayPal Protection, and credit card protection.
Canon just announced several new products, including the new and highly anticipated EOS 7D Mark II, with 65 cross-type AF points, a 20.2MP DPAF sensor, and 10 FPS capable, now available for pre-order at $1799.00.
Estimated ship date is November 17th; with this long lead time, pre-orders will be essential.
Also announced today were the EF 400mm f/4 DO IS II, EF 24-105mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM, EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM Pancake, and PowerShot G7 X.

An eBay Deal Frenzy began today, it runs until Friday. First up is Get It Digital via eBay: they have the Canon EOS 6D for $1349.99. This is an import model, but it has WiFi and GPS.
Get It Digital via eBay is a reputable unauthorized dealer, they have 99.2% feedback on high-value Canon items including a good track record on the EOS 6D. One small warning though, they are adamant about charging a 5% restock fee on returns (unless defective), so please be sure before purchasing.
If you would prefer an authorized dealer with a great 30-day return policy and a full 1-year Canon USA Warranty, we have a street price of $1459 after the $200 Canon mail-in rebate.
