The price is $2699.95 (after the $200 Canon mail-in rebate; pre-rebate price is $2899.95), it is US model from an US authorized dealer with full one-year Canon USA warranty. Free shipping is included and the dealers don’t collect sales tax for most states. We can’t reveal the name of the dealers at this time, but we can assure you that they are reputable Canon authorized dealers, just like our previous group buys.
This price is really close to the lowest ever price for 5D Mark III body only (one day deal of $2675 in March of 2014). Note that this deal is for a body only from a split kit, it is a 5D Mark III kit box with the lens removed. There’s no difference to your camera or your Canon USA warranty, just the box your camera is packaged in.
