eBay Daily Deal: 5D Mark III (Import) for $1999 from GetItDigital


This hot deal is back: Get It Digital via eBay has the Canon EOS 5D Mark III for $1999.00. This is today’s eBay daily deal.

This is likely grey market / import, as Get It Digital via eBay is not an authorized dealer. As a result, a Canon USA warranty is not guaranteed (the store provides a warranty instead). Historically Canon USA has provided warranty service on grey market bodies anyway — but this is at the discretion of Canon USA, and can change at any time.

This retailer has been a reliable eBay seller based on eBay feedback and reader feedback. They’ve sold over 2000 bodies — most were at this price. We will caution that they have attempted up-sell calls (asking you to upgrade to a USA model for an extra fee). We recommend you stay firm and insist that they process your order at the $1999 price, there are no physical differences between import models and USA models, even though they may attempt to convince you otherwise.

For more details on grey market vs. USA model, you can read our FAQ on the topic here.

If you’d feel more comfortable with an authorized dealer and a guaranteed Canon USA warranty, check out our street price of $2239 from an authorized Canon USA dealer with a 1-year Canon USA warranty and great customer service.

20%-Off Adobe Creative Cloud Photography Plan: $7.99/month


Adobe is offering a great discount on the Creative Cloud Photography Plan. It’s now available at a price of $7.99 per month, a 20% discount from the regular $9.99 subscription price, on new sign-ups before the end of the month.

The Creative Cloud Photography Plan is an excellent way for photographers to get started with Lightroom and Photoshop. With it, you get access to the latest version of Photoshop, and the latest version of Lightroom for your desktop, mobile devices, and the web.

The newest version of Lightroom is fantastic — it’s much faster than Lightroom 5 (using the GPU to help offload some computation), and offers new HDR and Panorama merge features. With membership in the Adobe Creative Cloud you get access to new features as soon as they are available, without having to re-purchase software.

Sigma Art 35mm f/1.4 $769, Authorized Dealer CameraLand via eBay


UPDATE: Sold out 17 minutes after our post. That was fast… Sigma Art 35mm for Nikon $769 still available. They also have the Sigma Art 50mm for Canon for $799.

Authorized Sigma dealer Cameraland via eBay has the Sigma Art 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM for Canon for $769.99. They have exactly three copies available for sale.

Cameraland via eBay is an authorized Sigma dealer, and thus this comes with a four-year Sigma USA warranty. Free shipping, and tax only to NY state. Compare with our street price of $809 or regular price of $899!

Note their listing has condition “New (other)” and says “We had an in store demo and these were shown and put back in the box.” Readers who have previously purchased from Cameraland in similar circumstances received a lens absolutely brand new, and were extremely pleased with the purchase. “Open-box” items are generally exempt from Minimum Advertised Pricing policies…

Lexar Professional 1000x UHS-II SD 128GB $68, 64GB $39


More great deals on high-speed Lexar SD cards.

This deal is only a few dollars more than an Amazon Lightning Deal which sold out in only two hours, last month.

These are UHS-II Speed Class 3 cards rated up to 150MB/s read. Note that all Canon cameras at this time don’t support the UHS-II interface, but this card is backwards compatible and will operate as a fast UHS-I card. This is fantastic pricing for a fast card that is future-proof for later camera offerings.

EF 100-400mm (Old Version) for $1299 at Adorama via eBay


Adorama via eBay is clearing out the Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM (old version) for $1299.00.

This is a great price if you’re not interested in shelling out for the new EF 100-400mm II ($2199).

This is also notable as the price of $1299.00 is below Canon’s Minimum Advertised Price of $1499 for this lens. We’re not sure if this is a special exemption or an indication that Canon’s MAP policy is being relaxed.
