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.
The Canon Refurb Store restocked — they are featuring newly lowered prices as a result of the large price drop earlier this month. Check out our refurb stock tracker for the full list of what’s in-stock.
Adorama has a smoking hot bundle of the EOS 70D and PIXMA PRO-100 for only $799.00, after a $350 mail-in rebate. You also get free photo paper, a bag, and a 32GB SD card.

Rumor sites are ablaze this morning with a leak of photos and specs of upcoming Canon products for Photokina. Leaked today was the new EOS 7D Mark II, with 65 cross-type AF points, a 20.2MP DPAF sensor, and 10 FPS capable — one of the highest performance crop bodies seen (except for maybe the sensor, which looks to be a version of the EOS 70D sensor).
Also leaked are the EF 400mm f/4 DO IS II, EF 24-105mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM, and EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM Pancake.
