    Another fantastic experience with CPW. My Canon 5D Mark IV arrived on the date promised. Simple and easy process and an excellent transaction and communication. Thank you.

    I have bought two Canon 5D MKIV’s, Canon 24-70 mkII, 7D MK II, Sigma 150-600 C and stuff I can’t remember. Solid service and never a hassle.

    I just made my first purchase through CPW and I can honestly say I will be making all of my future Canon purchases this way. I emailed in last Friday saying I was interested in the 6D with 24-105 USM Lens for $1759, Gordon responded promptly and set me up with an authorized dealer and I didn’t have to pay tax or shipping! My order was slightly delayed but only because they had to verify my billing address because it doesn’t match my shipping address. I’m honestly glad they do this because it prevents credit card fraud. My camera arrived yesterday (Wednesday) brand new in all the original packaging with the warranty cards. I am writing this because reading through all of the testimonials helped me with my decision to go with CPW to begin with. If you’re on the fence about ordering your gear this way take my word for it, it is completely worth the money saved. If I had ordered through Amazon (which was my original plan) it would have come out to $2133.93 after tax. CPW saved me $374.93

    I’ve bought 3 lenses through two transactions via CPW now. The first was a 100mm f/2.8L Macro which arrived very quickly after I ordered it through a page on the dealer’s website. The second and third lenses I just ordered today: 24-70mm f/2.8L II and 16-35mm f/4L IS. I was able to get the street price on both lenses from the same retailer (important for a rebate), and have already received the tracking info. I requested to use PayPal for this order and received an invoice through PayPal. In both cases, I filled out the request form and Gordon responded very quickly. I’ll admit I was a little skeptical with the fist order, but now I’ll probably be making all of my future purchases through CPW.

    This was my first time purchasing through CPW “street price.” I filled out the form and Gordon replied promptly. I was interested in a Canon 100-400II and an Extender 1.4x III. I provided some more basic information, and a couple e-mails later I was contacted by the authorized Canon dealer, sent an invoice via PayPal, paid it, and received both items two days later. I will admit, while this does seem odd, it’s totally legit, and a great way to save some cash. All of my future Canon purchases will be made this way. I highly, highly, recommend it. I was planning on buying refurbished initially, but the Canon stocking for refurbished items is so spotty, and in addition the sale tax eats away at any other savings. It was a little bit more going this route, but with the current rebates and promotions the difference was negligible and I get brand spanking new stuff! I like it. If you’re thinking about doing it, do it!

    This was my first purchase through CPW.communication purchase shipping all excellent recieved lenses in a couple of days. I have saved quite a bit through e-mail alerts about daily deals before I purchased. All in all they provide a real service to photographers who sign up,through reputable sellers all over. “Does it get any better than that” Thanks! CPW

    I was initially skeptical about using the service. CPW answered all my questions and concerns. Purchased an EF 24-70 2.8 ii USM, large dollars. Transaction was flawless, quick and seamless. I was very pleased as the communication was great, shipping excellent and everything promised was delivered. I will be using this service again for my next purchase.

    Thanks Gordon.

    I have been a long time follower of CPW and have eye on many good Street Price deals. But like everyone, I was very hesitant to actually pull the trigger to buy since the deal was to good to be true. But I said to myself, I going to see where this leads me and if I feel comfortable to buy, I will complete the transaction.

    So I click on the Canon M6 w/18-150mm kit deal. Which came with free genuine Canon EF EF-M lens adapter, a free Canon leather strap, and the opportunity to add an EVF-DC2 electronic viewfinder for only $45.

    Gordon reply very quickly with all the details but I continue with research on the seller which was from Canada. After I felt more comfortable communicating with them, I end up buying everything on April 27th as my Bday gift 🙂 It came faster then the tracking number stated with no additional fees. I am totally happy with my first transaction and I know this will not be my last. Even though the saying goes, if its to good to be true than…. but in this case it was a great deal!!!

    Thanks Gordon and the vendor for hooking me up.

    Ordered the 16-35 f4 L on Tuesday from Canadian Dealer and it arrived via USPS Saturday of the same week. No addt’l charges or fees, just a great price on a new lense. This is my 2nd time ordering thru pricewatch and both times it has worked perfectly and quickly. Will definitely use again!

    Ordered a 5D Mark IV April 27th and received it a week later on May 5th. Super easy process! Gordon responded to my inquiry less than 20 minutes after sending it and gave me a couple different ordering options and was super helpful. The camera was indeed brand new and came with the Canon 1-Year limited warranty as promised. Will definitely use the Street Price program again.

  14. May 1, 2017 at 7:28 pm

    Purchased a 5D Mk IV from one of the street price dealers. They allowed me to charge on several gift cards and had the camera to me free shipping within 5 days. Very happy with my purchase!

    Ordered 5D Mark IV. Super price from Canada dealer. Gordon promptly responded. Dealer was lightening fast to ship. Secure packaging, no up charge for express, and in my hands in 4 days. Couldn’t be happier.

    Here’s how my 5D4 purchase is going

    – I filled out my form 4/13 (Thursday) later afternoon
    – I received information from Gordon minutes later to place my order that the vendor was open for shipping and the upcoming Holiday would cause no delays unlike domestic locations which were closed. It was also about $500 cheaper than best price I could do on my own with full Canon warranty so a huge plus
    – I placed my order with the vendor located in Canada 5:30PM Canadian time same day Thursday 4/13 and it immediately cleared my credit card via PayPal
    – 4/15 Saturday 8A.M. received notification shipping label created and item would be shipping
    – 4 /17 Monday 1:30PM Canadian post indicates package not yet given to them for shipping check back later. Item will require someone to be home when USPS delivers it.

    I need it for an event this Saturday thus anxious however being located in WI I am very close to Canada so hopeful they will ship it soon just wish it would have been shipped on Friday. I will update with a reply on the final outcome.

      April 17, 2017 at 2:57 pm

      Please note that Friday 4/14 was a statutory holiday in Canada (Easter) and thus store + shipping was closed. Unfortunately you missed shipping cutoff on Thursday by about an hour. 🙁

      May 1, 2017 at 8:15 pm

      Just a follow-up. My 5D MKIV arrived on Friday so got it in time before my Saturday event. In fact the mailman ran it up to the door and said they only had a couple minutes left before it had to be dropped off…and then told me she’d be by later with the rest of my mail. So shipping turned out fine and the camera arrived new at a nice savings and with full U.S. warranty.

    Ok, here’s how my 5D4 puchase went.
    – I filled out the form. (Mar 20 evening)
    – I received the information from Gordon in ~30 minutes. (Mar 20 evening)
    – I placed the order online. (Mar 20 evening)
    – The camera was shipped. (Mar 21 Morning)
    – The camera arrived. (Mar 23 Morning)

    Honestly, I was expecting a little bit of discomfort as the price for the nice discount, but everything went very well!

    March 9, 2017 at 2:05 pm

    Thanks, Gordon! You helped me save $400 on my new EOS 5D Mark iv! I ordered directly from the website of the authorized dealer, the item arrived a day earlier than promised, and it was absolutely brand new, with a shutter count of zero. I’m very happy that I worked with you and I’ll be happy to do it again.

    1. Jason
      March 17, 2017 at 6:13 pm

      That’s awesome. I just ordered mine two days ago, crossing my fingers it comes soon. Did you have any problems tracking or any issues with customs?

  19. Dave
    March 4, 2017 at 9:39 pm

    I sent the e-mail 7:00 Sunday night and got the response with three options that evening. Monday lunch-time I e-mailed back the option I wanted. I got a response within minutes and a paypal invoice from the vendor followed quickly. The camera shipped Monday night and was delivered Wednesday afternoon. It came with warranty card and has been registered on the canon website without issue.

    It all worked just like advertised. Great service!

    I admit that I was skeptical about spending $10,000 for a Canon lens via this process. However, I now have the lens and it is a perfect, factory packaged, brand new, non-gray market lens with a full manufacturers warranty.

    The whole process was fast and just as described and the chosen dealer was reputable. I have already used this new lens to take several hundred photos so I know that it is functioning properly.

    I assure those who read this testimonial that I am being honest. I was wary in the beginning but now will make this my go to website for new photographic purchases.

    Excellent service! Amazing deals. I’ve used Canonpricewatch twice so far and managed to save hundreds of dollars each time

    I purchased a Canon 6D – a long awaited move to full frame. Simply put, Gordon made it happen. Saved me over $200 on a US warranted body with all the normal accessories in the box. Came from Canada with free shipping and no additional fees.

    Contacted Gordon via email, had the contact info within an hour, confirmed the invoice and I was done. Payment was fast and easy, used a PayPal balance I had built up and paid the rest with my visa. All online, no upselling, no nonsense.

    Only glitch was my fault – I waited until the next day to actually pay the invoice, and the body had sold, so I ended up waiting about 9 days while a new shipment came in. The dealer could have easily said “too bad, too late”, but they honored the original deal even though it was no longer available at that price. Gordon regularly checked in with me as did the dealer through the entire experience.

    It’s for real, folks, and I couldn’t be more pleased with the process or my new camera. I will be ordering a new lens soon, and will definitely come here first.

    Gordon, however you make a living at this, you deserve a raise!

    I have also purchased a Canon Mark IV and now a Canon 16-35 MK III via Street Price, still satisfied with my first experience.
    In both instances, there was a little hick up regarding exchange rates and the billing in Canadian dollars versus US dollars, but in the first instance that was my fault. Either way in both instances I was dealt with respect fully, and my matter dealt with promptly and courteously by both Gordon and the street price retailer. All the way through, my expectations were met. So I definitely would recommend anyone else to consider the street price option, which has provided me with a legitimate products as advertised, at a great savings, with only a little effort. I think that’s worth it for me. Thank you Gordon for the awesome purchase experiences! And the street price retailers you work with.

    Have fun and take care!

    I have used CPW Street Prices twice. Both times there have been some glitches (credit cards not accepted, pay pal problems, out of stock, hard to track shipping, etc.)…but I have received the lenses and camera within a reasonable amount of time and in excellent condition. Gordon is very responsive as are the companies he deals with. Ordering is not as simple and straightforward as working with B&H or Amazon, etc. But the savings are good. Just be prepared for a few bumps in the road.

    Well, I couldn’t be more pleased!!! I ordered a 5Ds through Pricewatch. I saved about $400.00. I received a USA warranty 5Ds new in box, just the same as if I had purchased it from any other camera store, except it was about $400.00 cheaper. No problems, no hassles, just savings. I registered the camera with Canon and the whole transaction, start-to-finish, went through just as Pricewatch said it would. What’s not to like?

  26. January 12, 2017 at 12:34 pm

    Great First Experience: I paid $3199 USD delivered (saving about $550) for a Canon 5D Mark IV from an authorized Canon dealer, full US warranty cards, and express shipping with tracking. This will be where I check first from now on! Great communication from CPW and the Dealer

    My first purchase through CPW and one of my best online purchase experiences (I shop heavily online). Bought 5DMIII with 24-105 f/4L kit. Seamless and transparent transaction, received the kit in crisp condition in 3 days along with USA warranty cards. I will definitely use this site for future Canon purchases.

  28. Applejuice
    January 2, 2017 at 5:25 pm

    My first time buying I got a 24-105 L street price for nearly the same price as used lenses. It showed up in 3 days with USA warranty card. This site has saved me quite a bit of money and I don’t have to worry about used stuff problems. I was so happy I bought 2 additional items thru the site. Thank you.

    I am extremely happy with my purchase of a Canon 24-70 F4 through CPW. Gordon was very responsive and helpful. The authorized dealer was quick (same day) to ship the lens, and everything was as advertised (great price, new condition, included accessories, 1-year warranty, no hassles).

    I’ve used this website many times to locate the best deals, but this was my first transaction through CPW using the “Street Price” dealer. I wouldn’t hesitate to use this option in the future.

  32. November 26, 2016 at 5:47 pm

    I just had an incredible experience with a Street Price purchase through Canon Price Watch. Gordon responded to my inquiry within minutes and provided instructions on how to contact the store to complete the order. Despite being reported as back ordered, the store was able to ship my order within just a few hours of my placing it! On top of that, the shipment arrived 4 days ahead of schedule. Unbelievable! And I saved almost 10% compared to the current retail price.
    For anyone who is new to this arrangement, there’s nothing shady here. The reason for the secrecy is that dealers are not allowed to advertise a price below Canon’s minimum retail price, even though they can sell for well below that price and still make a buck. That’s where Canon Price Watch comes in. They are able to broker deals at reduced prices while honoring the advertising rules imposed by Canon.
    I’m a satisfied customer and plan to start at Canon Price Watch for all of my future gear purchases.
    Thanks again to Gordon and the team!

    First experience of dealing with CPW street price is so far good. Just received the 16-35 f/4 for the never before low price. Now the actual test of the lens will happen tomorrow. But I trust, it should not be an issue. Based on this experience I will not have hesitation to use CPW street price next time.

    4th transaction. One body and 3 lenses. All separate. All with flawless execution. Highly recommended.

  35. October 21, 2016 at 12:50 pm

    My second experience with CPW was even better than the first. The process is easy and hassle-free. I paid the lower price quoted by CPW for the 100-400 4.5-5.6L II lens with absolutely no switch and bait tricks or upsell tactics by the retailer. My lens arrived in record time with free shipping. It came in the retail box with a US warranty and all the accessories. If you are on the fence dealing with CPW, don’t hesitate. They are great.

    Super Smooth transaction! I contacted Canon Price Watch after getting an email alert about lowered street price for the newly released Canon 5D Mark IV. Received a quick reply from CPW with dealer (seller) information. The seller is a reputable dealer in the US. They processed the order quickly and I have the camera in hand a few days later. Nicely done, Canon Price Watch!

    July 20, 2016 at 1:14 pm

    This worked perfectly- I indicated an interest in a Canon 5D mark III and was contacted within the hour. The deal was set up with a recognized retailer- essentially a brand new camera with US warranty- even in the original box (- kit lens!). Ordered on a Thursday and it arrived Monday. Cant say enough about this process and will definitely order this way again.

    Snagged a 16-35 f/4 for $939 after missing both the refurb AND First day of summer deals -_-. Contacted CPW around 1pm, responded 10 minutes later, then was in contact with dealer by 1:30, paid PayPal invoice then got a tracking number by 4pm. Arrived 2 days later. Too easy. Wish my kit wasn’t complete so I could buy more.

    I just purchased a 24-70 II 2.8 through CPW. I received the product promptly from an authorized dealer well below the price set by Canon. I had no problems registering the lens with Canon. I will use CPW in the future. It is a great service! Thank you so much!

  41. Justin
    May 26, 2016 at 8:30 am

    Just took the plunge and purchased the 24-70 II 2.8 through CPW. Got a great deal at $50 below the advertised street price, just had to ask. The process was quick and smooth and I received the product within 24 hours of submitting payment to the vendor. Next time I need something, I will definitely come here. Thanks Gordon!

  42. May 18, 2016 at 1:43 pm

    I’ve ordered several L lenses and camera (5D Mark iii) from Canon Price Watch having great success and never any issues with any of the equipment I’ve ordered. I’ve had both my 5D Mark iii cameras (including the one I ordered here) serviced for maintenance by Canon with no issues and all my lenses are registered. The service is great and they are always so quick to respond. CPW was recommended to me by a friend and I always recommend it to others. It’s always the first place I check.

    May 17, 2016 at 1:16 am

    Ordered from a Canadian option. Arrived in 5 calendar days. No added charges or duties of any kind. No upsell. Payment via PayPal, which I’ve used before, so no new CC info exposure risk. Product NIB, very well padded in shipping box. Tracking number provided. Warranty card included; says Canada / USA warranty. Product: 100-400 mkII lens.

    Would very gladly use this service with this vendor again. And… Thanks, Gordon!

    I used Street Prices for the first time, purchasing a 100-400 II lens saving at minimum of $400. It was easy, fast and painless. BNIB and a USA warranty. Will use Street Prices again in a heartbeat!

    I ordered a Canon 5DSR last Tuesday and it arrived today from an authorized seller. The price was $3,259 and was new in box with US warranty, free shipping and tax free. It was not a grey market camera and I did not have to put up with any bait and switch tactics. It was good to know I was purchasing it from a retailer with a great reputation. Like probably a lot of people, I was a bit hesitant to use the “Street Price,” but I have to say it is legit and I will be using it again for any future camera or lens purchases. Thanks for your help, Gordon.

    This is my second time to use Canon Price Watch Street Prices. The first time was for a 5D MIII, and this time was for the new 100-400mm IS II lens. The first time was via a Canon authorized US dealer, and this time was via a Canon authorized Canadian dealer. I was a bit more apprehensive about the Canadian process, but I’m happy to report that the whole process was as smooth and quick as the US purchase. In fact, I made the lens purchase via PayPal on a Monday, and had the lens delivered to my home in Texas Thursday afternoon! Amazing service, free shipping, no taxes and no duty! As advertised, the Canon Warranty Card is Canon USA as well as Canon Canada. Thanks for another great experience along with great savings!

    This is the 3rd or 4th time using CanonPriceWatch “StreetPrice”, but the first time using a Canadian retailer. The Canon 11-24 lens arrived yesterday (no duties, taxes or delays) and the quality of the photographs is amazing. It actually arrived a few days early on Friday rather than the Monday “guaranteed” delivery. Thank you for another effortless transaction for a top quality product with a Canon US warranty at a great price.
    Thank you!

    I just bought a 600EX-RT via “Street Price”. This is the second time I’ve used CanonPriceWatch’s Street Price. Both experiences were outstanding. Gordon promptly connected me with a vendor and I ordered the product immediately (Sunday night). The vendor responded Monday, shipped the product Monday afternoon, and it arrived at my West Coast home today (Friday). The product was new, came with a U.S. warranty, packaging was excellent, and tracking information was provided and accurate. I’m very pleased with CPW and will certainly check here next time I’m in the market for gear.

    The day (technically, a few hours, really) before the price-hike in Canada was instituted, I managed to grab a 6D + 24-105mm kit for $400 less than it retails for here in Los Angeles.

    Warranty, brand new, no hassle.

    I’m stunned.

    Big thanks to Gordon for making the process so painless. Cannot wait to get my grubby little (big) hands on this kit.

    Thank you!

    Just snagged a 24-70 2.8 II through CPW. Took about a week from inquiry to delivery w/ free shipping. Lens is great and the process was super easy. No upsell calls, no hassle, price was as shown. I would definitely order big ticket lenses through CPW again.

    Gordon is THE best! I’ll admit that the first time I bought a lens through CPW, I was pretty hesitant (and I lurked for a long time before making the plunge). However, the process was super straightforward and clear, my lens arrived quickly and was in perfect condition, and… I got a great deal! I’m now on my 3rd purchase through CPW and I couldn’t be happier. Great service all around — both the service itself and the customer experience. Thank you!

    I have looking for a better price on Canon T6S for a few weeks. I found this website when doing a search on my phone. What a great website and resource! I saw the “Street Price” link and was skeptical about this price. I was given 2 options and decided on the lower price. Order was placed on Monday night and item arrived Friday morning. Free shipping/Warranty. Very happy customer here! Thank you Gordon for all your help

  55. Matt
    February 29, 2016 at 5:06 pm

    Thank you Gordon! I have been a lurker on this website for quite a while. What a great website and resource! You hooked me up with a fantastic price on the lens I was looking for. Within a week of ordering it, I now have the lens in hand while saving 200 dollars in the process thanks to you (and of course the great retailer). Very happy customer here!

    First I have to say a big big thanks! My camera and flash arrived today and I am having a blast playing. I am so pleased with the experience I plan on making future purchases, i.e. more flashes and lens, through CPW.

    I had a budget of exactly $3900. (It was a gift to buy a Canon 5ds-r) Thus I could afford to buy the Canon 5ds-r at MAP from a number of reputable dealers. I have a few L lens and thus the camera body was the big need. BUT – No Flash, no extra batteries, no memory cards, sigh.

    I found CPW while doing research and then checked up on some reviews (thanks fellow reviewers, your reviews pushed me to give DPW a try.) I decided to go with the $2999 price from Canada. I then added in the Canon 600 ex flash for $379.

    Since I had a bunch of cash left ($900), I ordered from B&H 2 additional batteries, 2 Lexar 1066x Professional CF 128 gig CF cards (they were on sale for half price) a Lexar pro USB 3 card reader, a Vello screen protector, and finally, a Gary Fong Fashion and Commercial Lightsphere kit for my flash!!!!!!!

    For those who want to know how smooth it worked, let me tell you:

    I submitted the request to CPW. They responded with 30 minutes. They gave me two options. One US, one Canadian. I chose to save the extra money and go Canada. I wanted to confirm that the Canadian store had the camera in stock before I ordered, and I also wanted them to give me one order for both the camera and the flash, so I gave them a call and talked to a very friendly guy named Eric. He put together an invoice for me with a built in PayPal link and sent it to me. I paid the bill Monday morning, called him back to confirm they received payment, and then that afternoon received an email saying my order had shipped.

    Meanwhile, I ordered all the extra stuff from B&H.

    Thursday evening my B&H order arrived. Friday morning my camera and flash arrived from Canada.

    Yup. It was that easy.

    Again, I am thrilled with the process and have found my NEW go-to source for all of my major Canon purchases.

    Thanks Gordon. I really appreciated your prompt replies answering all of my questions and enabling me to a great price on the 100-400mm II. The purchase went exactly as you had explained.

    Thank you, Gordon! I ordered Canon’s 100 to 400mm lens through your link. The price was far below other advertised prices. The lens arrived in record time. I have been using the lens regularly and love the quality and sharpness!

    Thanks Gordon! I love your site and it makes it much easier to track pricing than me checking lots of websites. I had seen the Street Prices and they looked good, almost too good to be true. I ordered the Canon 100-400mm ii lens for over $400 less than I could find it anywhere else. I ordered the lens on Thursday, January 28 and it arrived at my home on Monday, February 1. A very easy process, you just gave me a link to your partner site and it took 2 minutes to buy the lens.

    I had been watching this site for a while and finally took the plunge on a Canon 100-400mm ii lens with a price that was $400 cheaper than anywhere else. The process was quick and easy. After emailing with Gordon, the retailer sent me an email with a link to the lens at the quoted price. Paid via paypal on a Saturday and picked up my lens from the post office the following Friday. Registered the lens online with Canon to activate the warranty. Couldn’t have been easier.

  63. January 29, 2016 at 9:33 pm

    Thank you CPW, Gordon, you are amazing, I was so frighten to spend all the money on my new 200-400mm 1.4x lens, after all its quite of G’s. Friend of mine said he purchased something trough you guys help and its legit, so I went for it, and to my amusement everything was exactly as Gordon explained, all was super quick and painless, I will certainly buy again, love to always get the lowest prices and when I can save thousands why not. Amazing service and of course the lens. Many thanks.

    This was the easiest way to get two great lenses at fantastic prices! The process was very quick and easy. Kudos to the Canon Price Watch team and the “Street Price” program! Because of this program, I was able to get a brand new Canon EF 100-400mm f4.5-5.6 IS II USM and the EF/S 10-18mm (both with full US warranty) for less than I expected to pay for the 100-400!

    I just purchased a Canon 5DSr through the CPW street price program and I can’t tell you how excited I am. I got an unbelievable deal on an extraordinary camera. It was extremely easy with Gordon’s detailed information about the street deals available to me that day. I chose one, the retailer contacted me via email, I paid via PayPal, and three days later the camera was delivered. I was skeptical at first, but I will definitely go this route again. I’m a very happy customer!

    I purchased both the Canon 5D Mark III and 50mm f1.2L through CPW’s street price program, and I could not be any happier with the service from both CPW and the retailer. They were prompt, accommodating and very professional in both dealings. Thank you so much for this great service!

    I was a bit skeptical about CPW at first, but I was won over by the great deal I got on my new EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II. The entire transaction was quick, easy and I had my lens in time for some weekend shooting. I saved $300 over the best deal I could find anywhere else on a new USA product (not gray market or otherwise). CPW has won another convert. Thanks Gordon!

    I purchased a 5D Mark III through CPW a few weeks ago. When I finally got around to registering my camera for the Canon CarePAK Plus I had issues entering my serial number so I contacted Canon. Canon said my serial number wasn’t “valid”. Needless to say i freaked out. I contacted Gordon and customer service where I had made the purchase. Talk about customer service! Both Gordon and the service department where I made the purchase literally sprang into action. They contacted Canon(after I had talked to them twice already) and got the problem resolved. Turns out it was an issue with the program that Canon uses to do the registrations. I highly recommend CPW . (thanks again Gordon and Sharon)

    This was a pleasurable buying experience…..I saved hundreds on a 100-400 II with free shipping from an authorized USA dealer. CPW was quick to respond to my inquiry & gave me dealer options to purchase either in or out of USA. The dealer was terrific and shipped immediately. I will definitely check in with CPW before making any Canon purchases in the future! Thanks Gordon!

    I purchased my Canon 5DIII a several months back through CPW and was amazed at the deal I received. It was even through a store I at times do business with so that made the deal much sweeter. I received fast courteous customer service through CPW and from now on go through them when getting new gear.

  71. Matt
    December 26, 2015 at 11:43 am

    Perfect transaction. Saved $400 on a 100-400 II, with free shipping. And the lens arrived just 3 days after ordering. This is how I’ll be doing all of my future ordering!

  72. December 22, 2015 at 2:31 pm

    This is the third time I used CPW today to purchase camera gear and I saved almost $400 on Canon EF 70-200L f/2.8 II USM Lens. Gordon is great at getting this price deals. He and the authorized dealers he arranges the deals with are very responsive. I don’t think I will purchase my gear from somewhere else in future. Prices posted here are unbeatable. Great work Gordon!

  73. December 16, 2015 at 4:32 pm

    This is the second time I have used Canonpricewatch.com for a camera purchase. It just keeps getting better and better. They saved me $400 on my new Canon 5ds camera. The retailer’s shipping was extremely fast. I can recommend Canonpricewatch.com to anyone looking for a great deal.

    I used Canon Price Watch to be connected to an authorized dealer and saved myself several hundred dollars from the advertised price of an L series telephoto zoom lens. I was a bit wary as a first-time user of the site, but could not be more pleased with the seamless process. I made the decision to purchase late in the day (in the Pacific Time zone), and quickly was connected to an east coast seller, enabling me to make the purchase before the sale expiration that night. My new lens arrived 5 business days later and is perfect. I truly appreciate the folks at CPW who provide this free service!

    Shout out to Gordon for his fast reply and great saving for my purchase. I was a little skeptical about the process since it’s my first purchase using CPW. However, Gordon’s replies were fast and prompt and the merchant was fast at processing my order. The package even showed up 1 day early for me. I’m very pleased with the purchase and their help finding the best price and great saving for me.

    Second purchase via CPW and once again everything was handled very efficiently and without issue. The response time from all involved is so quick, I barely spent any more time on this purchase than a conventional online purchase, but saved a very considerable amount over the big online sources. Thanks for this service once again,

    I would like to send a wicked big thank you, to you and CanonPriceWatch.com … I have since ordered the Sigma 150-600mm Sports Lens. Your customer service is perfect and I look forward to doing future business with CanonPriceWatch.com and yourself as well.

    Thank You

    Like those of you reading, I was super skeptical at first. How could you not be with the advertised prices? But sure enough, CPW delivered as promised. There is absolutely no risk as Canon lists their dealers online (you can even Google it to verify your dealer). The process was super, fast, easy. I literally turned my skepticism to being a believer in a matter of minutes by working with Gordon directly – free shipping, no tax, great service! Thank you Gordon, you’re the man.

    Purchased a 600mm II through the street price deal. Had a few questions, which Gordon answered very quickly. Did a bit more research and next day placed the order via a link provided by Gordon. Placed order on Tuesday lens arrived Friday from Canada. Everything was brand new with all paperwork and accessories. Saved a boat load of money. Would not think twice about doing another deal. Thanks Gordon.

    I ordered a Canon 70-200mm 2.8 IS II through CPW Street Price and I would gladly do it again! I was hesitant about ordering a lens this way, but pleasantly surprised at how helpful and prompt Gordon was in addressing my concerns and finding a dealer for me to do business with. The dealer also answered all of my questions and the transaction went smoothly. It saved me $200. Thank you!

    November 11, 2015 at 12:51 pm

    Recently ordered a 70-200 f/2.8L II using the street price program. I had priced them out in various spots and wasn’t crazy about the prices I’d been seeing. I had emailed some questions to Gordon. (wanted to make sure return policy was fair and that I wouldn’t be hassled by upsell etc) He replied promptly and I pulled the trigger. The whole process took a few minutes and went off without a hitch. The dealer did a great job, shipped the same day and everything (box, inserts, usa warranty card etc) was pristine. What I paid was close to ebay gray market pricing and not that far off from used prices on some of the photography forums… I also liked the haggle free nature of the transaction Overall, very happy.

    I ordered a 5DSR through CPW during Canon’s recent Instant Rebates. Gordon was incredible—does he ever sleep? He got right back to me on each query I made and connected me with an authorized Canon reseller right away. My purchase went through smoothly, the camera arrived on schedule, and I’m totally thrilled—both with Gordon and with the reseller. I saved several hundred $, thanks to CPW, and will definitely look here the next time I’m in the market for a Canon product. Thanks Gordon!

    Just received the Canon 11 to 24mm lens I bought through CPW. This was my first buy using CPW and I am very impressed. I got a great price and am very happy with the lens! I will be using CPW for more gear. I wish I had known about CPW years ago. Thank you, Gordon!!

    I have dealt with Gordon here at CPW and am so impressed with the knowledge, expediency, and communication with him and this organization that I bought three items through CPW in the past month. And the stores that CPW has referred were exceptional in service, prices, and communication. I have already recommended CPW to many photographer friends. 🙂

    I just completed my first purchase through CPW, a Canon 100-400L II, and couldn’t be happier with the amazing price *way* below MAP, great service, and fast shipping. There are so many scams out there one has to be really careful with any website claiming to provide deals on camera gear, and the whole “cloak and dagger” that MAP policies force on retailers who want to be competitive doesn’t help anyone. After many, many emails with Gordon (thanks, Gordon, for putting up with me!), I decided to go ahead with the purchase despite my initial concerns – I’m very glad I did. The lens shipped cross-country Monday via USPS and was at my doorstep this morning, 3.5 days later, with the box in pristine condition (unlike the boxes I usually receive from that brown carrier). Thanks, CPW!

    I was VERY leery at first to buy camera equipment (Canon EF 200-400) through CPW Street Price. I chatted with Gordon and he assured me that the deal was honest and on the up and up. I had never spent so much $$ on anything other than a car and house before! If I had bought this lens through regular channels I could not have afforded it. I put my trust in Gordon and am I ever grateful! The deal was as easy as I’ve ever done AND I got my lens earlier than was stated. It is brand spanking new and perfect, transaction and all, complete with USA warranty too! My only complaint is directed toward myself…WHY didn’t I shop here before I bought all my other gear!!!! Dummy ME! Not gonna make that mistake again!
    Thanks Gordon and CPW Street Price, you saved me over $1500!

    Just received a new Canon 70-200 f/4 L IS lens from an authorized Canadian Canon dealer through CPW. This is my second purchase through CPW “Street Price”, my first being a 6D body. As before, the transaction went off without a hitch, everything was as advertised and the savings were substantial. The Canadian dealer shipped via Canada Post and the lens was delivered to me in the U.S. by USPS. No duty, no fees.

    I was skeptical at first because the deals seem too good to be true. I have been eying the Canon 5D Mark III with 24-105mm F4 IS for a while now and have been hesitating to jump the gun. Saw an offer for an incredible deal with something called Street Prices, and thought maybe this might be worth the risk. Sent an inquiry the 20th, Gordon responded in less than an hour asking for my name and address. Next day got an email with the link to proceed with my transaction at a reputable and authorized retailer that most folks have purchased before. Bit the bullet and purchased the 21st, had it shipped same day, and just got it the 24th. Camera is brand new with USA warranty. Couldn’t be happier. Will purchase all my camera gear using Street Prices in the future.

    Some feedback on this transaction:
    Order placed Fri, 9/11, late in day.
    Order shipped Mon, 9/14, via Canada Post.
    Arrived in U.S., 9/16 (JFK I think).
    Delivered to my California address, 9/17, just before noon.
    Item was well packed, in original Canon packaging, inside a larger carton. USA/Canada warranty card included. I’d say I’m a happy customer–thanks!

    Got 5ds through street price. Was a little worried because it was $600 under the msrp, but figured if its a scam i can get amex to give me my monkey back. i was very pleasantly surprised. came in pretty fast, brand new, works, no complaints.

    September 1, 2015 at 10:17 pm

    The CPW process was amazing and simple. I jumped on it as soon as the notice came out on Friday morning. Within a half hour I had completed the order process and two hours later I got a shipping notice from the carrier saying they had received the package and it was on its way. The following Tuesday morning USPS showed up at my door with the lens. As advertised it was brand new, never opened, and came with a USA warranty. I’ve never had online order service as good as this!

    I was told about CPW by a fellow traveller about a year ago. I had been checking in intermittently just to check on prices. Last week I checked and found a great price on a new 70-200 f2.8 IS II, and decided to check it out. Of course I was skeptical at first, but Gordon reassured me that it would come with a USA warranty, brand new in original packaging. He was right. It actually arrived a day earlier than expected. Great service, great reliability and great prices. Would recommend this to everyone! Thanks, Gordon!

    August 21, 2015 at 10:59 am

    I used the Street Price service to find a good source for my Canon 5DS.
    Very good communication from Gordon and within a couple of days I received my 100% new Camera with US warranty.
    I could not have justified upgrading to this camera by buying it the regular price but this opportunity made the difference between the resale value of my 5D III and the price of the new camera more manageable.
    Thanks to Canon Watch Street Prices and to the dealer who did a great job! I will use the service again!

  98. pierre
    August 20, 2015 at 2:38 pm

    thank you again for the help. My 70-200 2.8 IS II came in this morning two days ahead of the schedule. Everything is brand new with US Warranty card as promised. Awesome deal and great service from both you and the lens supplier. Thanx again!

    The new EOS 7D Mark II was just delivered to my house. The process was super smooth and quick. Gordon is very professional and there were no problems at all. Everything was done within a week.

    I am extremely pleased with my recent purchases of a 100-400mm II and 7D Mk II through CPW’s Street Price program. I had not heard of one of the vendors before and was initially skeptical, but Gordon reassured me that many other Canon users have bought from them before without any issues. He was right – both transactions went perfectly smooth, shipping was free and quick, no tax, and came with USA warranty. They had the best prices anywhere on the internet! Thanks Gordon for your service to Canon lovers everywhere!

  102. Erich Varnes
    July 26, 2015 at 1:44 pm

    This is a great service. I purchased a new 7D Mk ii and new 24-70 f/4 lens via this program. Gordon was extremely responsive. Both items purchased through authorized distributors with free shipping and the price exactly as Gordon listed. The process was seamless – shipped right away and I got my equipment in no time at all. Overnight for both orders. And the price!!! When who wouldn’t want to save hundreds of dollars for authentic equipment. Especially at the prices we pay for canon gear! Thanks CPW! Already looking to make my next purchase!

Gordon was very prompt in returning my emails and getting me through the process quickly and seamlessly. The retailer was just as good to work with. A+ for both companies for offering a fantastic service. I will definitely check for street prices offers when looking for more gear, and canonpricewatch.com will now be my goto site.

    More praise for the Street Prices program. I purchased a new 11-24 zoom, paid several hundred dollars less than the standard price that everyone else in the world apparently has to pay for it, and received it a mere couple of days after it was ordered. Brand spanking new with a US warranty as represented and expected. And the service and process couldn’t have been easier or more trouble-free. HIGHLY recommended. You guys rock!

    Stumbled on to street prices and am glad I did! Was skeptical at first but when I received the link to buy it was from [name of store removed]! The reviews helped as well. I saved $150 off a new 6D!

  109. Randy
    July 7, 2015 at 6:39 pm

    Purchased a new 6D, my second, from what ended up being the same retailer from which I bought my first. The difference? CPW Street Price saved me hundreds of dollars this time around. This will be my go-to source for deals on the big ticket items from and for Canons.

    Purchased a new 5D III through CPW from an Authorized Canon Dealer. Everything was just as promised and the transaction went very smoothly. No haggling, no one trying to upsell or add accessories. Very happy. I will be buying through CPW again.

    Amazing. I came across this site over a year ago and saw it was still online so I took a chance and used CPW to place an order for my first L lens. I got the lens yesterday. This is a fantastic service that has saved me hundreds of dollars.

    It’s not a trick or a scam, everything is legit, I got my 70-200 f2.8L IS II exactly as described, brand new in box and perfect from an authorized retailer.
    To summarize shortly and sweetly, Gordon’s attentiveness and professionalism rank with the best of the best in the customer service world. I have no regrets and will continue to purchase through CPW for fantastic street prices on great items from authorized vendors.
    Thank you again and keep up the great work!

    I placed a Street Price order for a Canon 7D II on April 12, 2015. I received a brand new, in the box, USA warranty, as-advertised and as-promised, 0 shutter count (I checked) body with all accessories. Prior to, during, and after placing the order, both CPW and retailer were very responsive, professional, honest, cooperative, and a genuine pleasure to work with. The body did have some focusing issues upon receipt. Live view was spot on 10 out of 10 times, but the mirror-based autofocus was missing more than half the time on a stationary target in One Shot. I did consider and actually started the process of returning it for an exchange. The retailer was very responsive, immediately sent a return shipping label, and I was all ready to box it up and send it back. In other words, if I had wanted to exchange it, I am 100% confident that I would have been able to without fuss. However, after talking at length with several support folks at Canon, and reading the excellent Lensrentals.com article on autofocus systems and variations across bodies and lenses, I opted to send the body to Canon for service where they confirmed the issues I was seeing and re-calibrated it at no charge. At Canon’s recommendation, I also shipped back my 70-200 2.8L II (which was sadly no longer under warranty) and paid Canon to calibrate my lens to the new body at the same time. The lens and body came back and the autofocus issues were gone. The autofocus is excellent now, my lens is calibrated to this body, and I am delighted with the performance. So as far as my experience with CPW and the retailer they connected me with, I could not be happier. The money I saved more than covered the calibration of my lens to the new body, and obviously Canon honored the warranty on the new body. I now have exactly what I wanted—a tack sharp 7D II that is churning out a very high percentage of keepers. I will use CPW for my big-ticket photography purchases going forward. I admit I was skeptical at first, but CPW is for real, and it was actually a better buying experience than I was used to when buying from the big online photo retailers (you know who I’m talking about). It’s like you have an uncle in the business looking out for you. Thank you Gordon for your patience and encouragement throughout the process.

    Just placed my first order through CPW. I got a response within an hour and Gordon was very friendly and helpful. Multiple options of retailers were provided with a full explanation addressing any possible concerns or questions.

    I didn’t really have any doubts about the service but after completing the purchase through who ended up being one of my favorite retailers, I’ll definitely be making all future purchases through CPW.

  117. May 24, 2015 at 6:17 pm

    I used CPW twice now — for the Canon 16-35mm f/4L and Canon 24-70mm f/2.8L II — and both transactions went great. It’s a terrific service. Thanks Gordon!

    I’m a very skeptical person when it comes to good deals. However, I decided to try the street price feature here for a 6D body only. I was contacted very quickly about an offer from a USA authorized dealer.

    Not only was I put in touch with them immediately, the dealer’s email contact was very responsive. I looked up the dealer’s name on Canon’s list of authorized dealer and can confirm that the street price feature uses Canon authorized dealers.

    I ordered the same day using PayPal (which adds some security for the purchaser) and was given a tracking number the next day. My 6D arrived as promised, with full USA warranty, and I was able to register it online with no problems.

    I would wholeheartedly recommend the street price feature for anybody trying to save a bit of money. Shipping was free and I didn’t have to pay tax so I saved over $300 from where I would purchase regularly. Thanks so much, I’ll definitely be using the street price feature again in the future!

    Just purchased a 7D Mark II last Wednesday – initial contact at 10a – had a UPS tracking number by 3p, and the camera in two days – NIB with a US warranty and a savings of $200. Thanks, canonpricewatch.com!

    I tried using Gordon’s Street Price option about a week and a half ago and the experience was excellent. I sent Gordon an inquiry about the Canon 16-35mm f/4L rather late in the evening and amazingly he responded within about an hour with a deal. I was able to get the lens at the listed street price and had it in my hands just a few days later. The transaction was smooth and efficient and I very much appreciate the service Gordon provides in arranging these deals. I’ll be back for sure!

    This is amazing. I purchased a Canon 7D Mark II using CPW street price.

    This is how the process went: I filled out the form on CPW, and Gordon contacted me right away with two authorized dealers. I opted for the authorized dealer located in Canada (I live in the US). The whole system is very safe and went smoothly–you place your order through the authorized dealer’s official website and you would normally, and not by giving your payment information to some unknown person. The shipping speed also amazed me. I was expecting a long transit time (Ontario, Canada, to Seattle, WA, USA) and custom delays; instead, the camera got to my doorsteps under 2 business days (shipped Friday morning, arrived Monday morning). Everything was in order (Canon USA warranty cards, item arrived safe and sound and in excellent condition).

    I am now enjoying my 7D Mark II very much. This would not have been possible without CPW (the street price put the camera within range of my budget). For that, I am exceedingly grateful.

    Great Service – I just purchased a 5D Mark III and 24-105 F4 IS bundle using CPW street price. Both from an authorized dealer and it went off without a hitch. I check CPW prior to purchasing any equipment now.

    Looking forward to more purchases in the future.

    In the last two weeks I have had two very positive experiences using canonpricewatch “Street Prices “. I purchased a canon 5d Mark iii and a few days later a canon 24-105mm lens. In both cases I got very timely responses from the website on possible sources. Once I chose one of the recommended sources, I was provided a quick reply on how to proceed to complete the purchase. Both of product providers also responded quickly and shipment was made the next day. The camera and the lens both arrived quickly and in excellent condition. I am very happy with how the process worked and will order again in the future. I believe this is a great service.

  126. April 24, 2015 at 11:31 am

    I just received a street price 24 – 105 F/4 as my third purchase from CPW. The email follow up is great, the price awesome, the delivery faster than anticipated, in less than a week from order to doorstep. Do not hesitate to use this site for great gear and great prices.

    I used “Street Prices” to order a Canon 6D. Gordon responded quickly, providing me with several options. The ordering process is simple and effortless — I used a reputable dealer who shipped me the camera in less than 4 days. Canonpricewatch’s Street Prices will be my first choice for my next purchase. Thank you Gordon!

    I bought a 5D3 at the new year time and I feel compelled to come back and give Gordon kudos for the wonderful experience of street price I enjoyed. I received precise information on what are the options of street price available in my case before I decided to move forward. Everything after that, the payment, the delivery, the package were all precisely as Gordon elaborated over email. Couldn’t be more happier!

    I just received my second camera via CPW, a Fuji X100t. Gordon is awesome at answering questions and responding to email. My price was through a Canadian dealer and both times, the camera arrived a day ahead of the estimated date. The entire transaction was fast, easy, and trouble free. I have no hesitation recommending CPW to everyone.

  131. April 7, 2015 at 8:41 am

    Very pleased with the shipping time and service received by CPW. Ordered 24-70 L II lens. Above what I expected. Quality people, quality service, quality product. Thank you!

    I am very pleased at the service from CPW and the store they connected me with on the purchase of a 7D Mark II kit. I placed the order on March 24 and received it on the 31st. Both were very quick to respond and very professional. I will definitely look into doing this again when I am in the market.

    I am very impressed. I can’t even tell you how i found CPW but glad i found it. I was looking to buy a 5D3 and came across CPW. The reviews / testimonials were so positive, i decided to email them to see what deals i can get. I kid you not, within 15 minutes I received a reply. CPW does all the legwork. Prices were great. I emailed back explaining what I wanted. He sent me the vendor info soon after. Now I own a brand new 5d3. Its that easy.
    I like is that it comes with the USA warranty. Order was placed on 3/26 and I received it on 3/30.

    My advice to you as potential purchasers is to do your homework. I’m glad I purchased from here.

    I am EXTREMELY satisfied with canon price watch. I bought my canon 6D through Gordon on CPW and between his Lightning fast communication and very informative/positive demeanor…he made the entire experience fantastic. The company that sold me the 6D also was quick and amazing with communication and information. I recomend this websites I anyone and everyone! Thank you CPW!

    This website regularly and quickly updated with latest deals and street prices for all eligible products. I was in touch with CPW before 6 months for purchasing 6D and lens. Again today I sent an email for a lens purchase and the response was quick as expected. Will recommend to visit this site to all my friends.
    I am a daily visitor of this website. I believe all those who made purchase thru this service are happy forever.

I was a little skeptical at first, but I the transaction went extremely smoothly and I was in direct contact with Gordon and the authorized dealer that I was purchasing through. Both were extremely responsive to any questions I had. I will be using this feature again in the future! Thank you CPW!

The camera arrived exactly as promised, with expedited shipping for a fantastic price I couldn’t beat anywhere. US model, with a warranty and in perfect shape. Very happy with the purchase and the great service from everyone involved. Will definitely look to CPW for any future Canon gear purchases. Thanks guys!

    I wanted to send you a follow up and thanks for you help on the Canon 7d II. I placed the order late Friday afternoon March 13, had no trouble with the site or checkout.

    I received a couple of status updates on shipping and the camera arrived today ( a day early) Thursday March 19 in Iowa (central US)

    The battery is in the charger and I’m eager to take the camera on a few shoots.

    Thanks I’ll be in touch soon on the 24 105 and the Fuji x100T.

    I am incredibly satisfied with my Street Price transaction! I sent an inquiry Tuesday night and Gordon got back to me with the details in a matter of minutes. Wednesday morning I called the sales rep at one of the reputable shops that you have almost certainly purchased from to give my credit card number. Today (Thursday) I have been happily enjoying my new Canon EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM lens that was delivered (free and without sales tax I might add) in one day, brand new with a US warranty and eligible for a $200 rebate!

    I was in the market for a white box EF 24-105mm f/4L and got the amazing 24-70mm lens brand new in retail packaging for barely more than the 24-105mm would have been. I am unbelievably happy and will shop this way whenever I possibly can! I got this lens for $140 less than the same dealer sells it to the public and they are already at Canon’s minimum advertised price. The price was even lower than buying a refurbished one from Canon! It’s hard to believe this lens was selling for more than twice what I paid yesterday just a year ago.

    Thank you so much!

    Gordon is awesomely awesome. Very prompt, reputable, and significantly lower in price than anywhere else. The dealer he referred me to is top notch. I got a 24-70 II at a price that I am still amazed at. I will not hesitate to use CPW again for my next purchase!

  141. Jonathan
    March 7, 2015 at 1:05 pm

    I couldn’t possibly be happier than I was with the Street Price purchase I made. I snagged the Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM for $749 shipped to my house. The retail price everywhere else is $200 more. How do you argue with that?
    After this experience, I’m done paying retail for any new camera equipment I want. Gordon… you’re awesome! Thanks for making this available!

    I have never heard of Canon price watch before and seeing all the good deals on cameras and lens for their street price. I wanted to get a canon 5d mark III for a long time. They had the best price offer with a U.S.A warranty from a Authorized Canon dealer. I thought this was a fake company that will rob you of your money. But after reading all the good reviews of what people say about this company, I decided to take a step of faith and order the canon 5d mark III. Gordon e-mail me back within an hour of a Authorized canon dealer that would offer me a good deal for the camera. I have never heard of this company but Grodon assure me that i would not have any problems. And he was right. I got my brand new canon 5d mark III yesterday for a very good deal with a U.S.A. model I’m very happy I went through canon price watch. Next time i need any camera item, I won’t be hesitate to order from canon price watch again. Thanks to Gordon! =)

    If your weary don’t be. I’m the most nitpicky, paranoid, expect top notch service and product person around. Everything is 100% legit and Gordon’s service is exceptional. I got a sweettttt deal on the canon 70-200 f/2.8 is II, from a highly regarded big player company and I received it from Canada, here in NY within three days. You can’t ask for more….honestly. I will be ordering all my lenses for now on through Gordon.

  144. February 6, 2015 at 5:58 pm

    Honestly I was a little nervous about the street price thing. Gordon connected me with a dealer, I paid through paypal so it was protected, and shortly after I received an invoice. The dealer was Canon authorized. I received a brand new 24-70mm for barely more than Canons refurb price. I highly recommend this. Gordon made sure I was comfortable every step of the way, and got me the best deal possible. Will definitely do this again.

    You can say I’m in the “if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is” camp. I approached my first CPW deal, for a 500mm super-tele, no less, with great trepidation. But after reading the FAQ, reviews and corresponding with CPW, I decided to take a leap of faith. Fortunately, I was rewarded in kind. My new lens showed up looking like any other, straight off the authorized dealer’s showroom floor with USA warranty and flawless condition. And the best part was the extra effort CPW put forth in terms of customer service, something that’s sadly becoming a lost art. I won’t hesitate to shop CPW first the next time I need photography equipment.

    So, I am new to CanonPriceWatch and after seeing deals that are too good to be true on the likes of 42nd street photo, etc, I was very skeptical about street prices. But I read the FAQ and the site thoroughly and decided to have some trust. I bought a EF-S 17-55 f/2.8 IS through this program and couldn’t be happier. First, I feel like I got more personal service than buying regular through the usual companies. And I was provided with rebate forms, tracking numbers, etc. The lens arrived today and is exactly as advertised. This is a total success in every way. 5 stars to both the dealer here and to CPW. Thanks

  149. January 20, 2015 at 4:48 pm

    The sale could not have gone any smoother !!!! If you had any doubts, fear not .. Communication was fast.. The seller had OUTSTANDING seller ratings. Payment was sent via paypal invoice.. Fast FREE shipping. Camera was packaged well. Rebate forms provided and explained well. I would not hesitate to buy via CPW. Thank you CPW for a great customer experience !!!!

    CPW has been a great resource for me when shopping for gear in the past, but I was just able to take advantage of their street price service for the first time. What a great service! Within 24 hours I had email confirmation with tracking number for a Canon 85L, at a great price, brand new (in box with warranty, the works… oh, and still rebate eligible!) from an authorized dealer, whom is not only listed in this site, but I’ve made many purchases through in the past. This will definitely be my first stop for future Purchases! Thanks CPW!

    I use street price twice in the course of a month. At first, I was very skeptical. However, the process was exactly as laying out in FAQ. It was smooth and easy.

    CPW connected me with the canon authorized dealer whom I have bought a lot of stuffs from in the past. They already had all my information in the account, so I just needeed to call and tell them to process the order. It was quick and simple.

    Of course, the item is the same as buying directly from the retailer website. brand new, retail box full canon warranty.

    I like this service. I would recommend it to every one.

    January 14, 2015 at 1:07 pm

    If I hadn’t run across the street price for a new Canon 24-105mm f/4L on CPW, I would still be looking for a used price and vendor I could feel good about.

    Gordon had good answers for my questions and concerns about choosing to go with a Canon authorized dealer in Canada. He responded very quickly to my first question around 2:00 on a Friday afternoon, to another question around 6:00 p.m., and a final question on how to complete the transaction at 9:00 p.m

    I ordered the lens last Monday and it arrived on Thursday, a day early, without a single mark on the box from its travels, and with the Canon warranty card.

    I chose that option over the US street price. The price difference was enough that I could then add a quality protective filter without spending more. I don’t know where else I would have found this lens for the normal price of adding it to a kit.

    Thanks for all your help, Gordon!

    Without providing specifics I can confirm that I just bought an expensive L lens for less than most people are selling them used. I submitted my “Street Price” inquiry, asked a few more questions, then placed my order. 72 hours later the lens was in my hands, which was especially impressive given the distance it traveled. The lens is no different than if I had purchased anywhere else and came with the full warranty, etc.

    In the future I will buy gear here before over-paying for used equipment. I’ll spend less and get peace of mind in the process.

    My only complaint? I wish I would have known about this service sooner. I’ve been missing out!

    Thanks again, CPW. This service is absolutely fantastic in every way and I can’t recommend it enough.

  157. January 2, 2015 at 12:56 pm

    I bought three Canon lens from CPW street price, so far so great. Wish I could have known this site earlier to save money for my other three lens . Gordon provided excellent customer service to me. Thank you very much, will definitely come back if I need to buy more.

  161. December 20, 2014 at 2:34 pm

    CPW is the best service available for those sincerely looking to save substantial money on Canon equipment. Here’s the bottom line..we did an inquiry received a quote that same day, did the PayPal transaction that day and the lens was shipped the following business day…In less than a week we saved over $350 without having to worry about rebates, pay extra shipping or pay sales tax…if you aren’t using this service you ARE paying too much.
    Thank you Canon Price Watch…

  162. December 18, 2014 at 7:21 pm

    I bought a 70-200 f4 nonIS. Couldn’t be happier with the process. The retailer was a legit company that I would have thought of buying from to begin with. The process is smooth. Not as simple as type in a credit card number and wait for the delivery man to show up. For me I think there was an email and a phonecall and then bam. transaction processed smoothly. item shipped quickly. Smooth start to finish.

    Great/Best way to buy. This was my second purchase using the Street Price option on CPW. Bought a 500mm f4. (best price available). Fast great service. 2 emails, drain the checking account, 6 days later lens in my hands. The company I worked with was authorized and very professional and responsive.

    I HIGHLY recommend this service. It is a no-brainer…Thanks CPW!
    PS. This lens is a piece of art..… Will use CPW again.

  164. December 5, 2014 at 11:08 am

    A mixed bag, but all’s well that ends well. I received a defective 35mm L prime from an authorized dealer. It had focusing issues, so I returned it – for almost $1300 after tax I wanted it to be perfect, as God and Canon intended. Both ordering and returning processes went smoothly, great customer service and quick turnaround. Disappointed in Canon, I was ready to buy a Sigma Art (If I was going to have AF issues, I would rather have them at Sigma prices), when I received a notification from CPW that a refurbished 35L is available from Canon for $905. I grabbed it, and it’s perfect, and at an incredible price. Thank you CPW!!!

    I ordered a 6D and 24-105 L kit last week and due to an error by the retailer I didn’t receive it until today. However, the street price program was everything it was advertised to be. My interaction with the retailer was great both before and after their error and they were apologetic and quick to correct the error. There were no issues or problems from CPW’s end. I will absolutely use the street price program again and I won’t be upset at all if I end up with the same retailer as before as they fixed their error and made me feel at ease about the whole transaction. I’m loving my 6D so far and love even more that I got it at as good a price as I did. When I order my next lens I’ll absolutely use the street price program and save myself some money. Thanks a lot, CPW!

    I ordered a EF 24-70 F/2.8L II USM on 10/29/2014 through the CPW street price program. It was straight forward process. I send a message someone from CPW contacted me with 2 options. I choose one of them and I was asked for billing address and phone number. Few hours later I got a call from one of the leading camera dealer from NY. I paid $1899.99 out of that $150 is MIR. I submitted the claim and as of 11/28/2014 it says “Payment approved” So the price is $1749.99 after the rebate. Thank you CPW for the wonderful service.

    Street Price is awesome! Wish I had knew it before I purchased the 1635 F2.8L ($1699! no rebate! 08/2013). This August, I purchased 70-200 F4L IS for 1069 street price, awesome lens! Helped me to take tons of amazing pictures for my friends engaging party. Today, I just put an order for 50L from the street price, CPW street price is a big steel!

    Great way to buy. This was my first purchase using the Street Price option on CPW. Bought a 16-35mm f4. Fast great service. 2 emails, 1 phone call , 2 days later lens in my hands. Rebate is headed to my mail box 30 something days later. The company I worked with was authorized and very professional and speedy. This is the real “Easy Button”

    I HIGHLY recommend this service. It is a no-brainer…Thanks CPW!
    PS. Great lens corner to corner… Will use CPW again.

  169. November 8, 2014 at 9:31 pm

    Great, fast transaction and item was received within 2 days. I was able to do a photo shoot within 2 hours of opening my new 24-105 lens and was very pleased with the results. Awesome price and service; I highly recommend this program to anyone who wants a super deal and excellent customer service.

    My transaction couldn’t have gone better. It was so easy! I contacted CWP expressing my interest, received an email from an authorized Canon dealer, was sent a PayPal invoice, I paid. That simple. I ordered Monday & received my new Canon 6D Friday! Just to satisfy my curiosity, I did a shutter count using Shutter Count by Dire Studio (2.99 in Mac App store) & it was at ZERO! I also called Canon & they said that as long as there is a Canon USA warranty card included & it was purchased from an authorized dealer, that there shouldn’t be any reason for concern. I purchased my Canon 6D 24-105L kit @ $2299.00 + qualifies for a 200 mail-in rebate. Also, it was a compete kit & not the body in one box & the lens in another. For anyone hesitating or on the fence, I’d do it again!

    I got a brand new 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM telephoto lens for $2049.95 before rebate. I e-mailed CPW with the request and everything went so smoothly that the lens shipped on the SAME DAY and arrived the next day (today). The company I worked with was authorized and very professional and speedy.

    I HIGHLY recommend this service. It was far more efficient than my attempts at using a competing service. Thanks CPW!

    I got a 6d for $1440 after rebate from a Canon authorized dealer, as it turns out, whom I bought a lens from last year. The camera arrived in two days, and the dealer also included all the paperwork and instructions to apply for the rebate. I couldn’t be more satisfied. Next time I buy a Canon product I will go to this site first.

    I am very happy with my transaction through CPW. I purchased an EF 24-105mm f/4 IS USM L lens for an AMAZING price brand new. This was my first purchase using the Street Price option on CPW. I paid $659 USD for this lens currently worth around $1149. They were quick in response and gave me a list of options to purchase my lens. They also got in contact with the retailer almost immediately. Within a few hours the retailer was sending me information and had the item shipped.

    This was the best, smoothest transaction I have EVER had. I would recommend this to anyone and I know I will use it again. I saved $490…who doesn’t want to save that much on expensive camera gear?

    Thank you CPW and thank you retailer! Best experience EVER!

    I am so pleased with my transactions thru CPW; their responses to my inquiries were lightning fast, thorough, and inspired confidence. I saved several hundred dollars by using CPW to purchase my 24-70 mm f/2.8L II and 70-200 mm f/2.8L IS II lenses. I’m a very cautious shopper; this site is totally recommended! Thank you, CPW!

    Canon 24-70 Mk II for $1,899.95 before rebate from an authorized dealer with a 30 day return policy (same as Amazon) as opposed to mrp $2,099.00. Courteous service, awesome experience. What else could I ask for?

    I definitely recommend the cpw program. I will be back for my next purchase hopefully in a few months

    I contacted Canon Price Watch instead of my normal “go to” vendor when doing a substantial (for me) upgrade to my lens collection.

    I purchased a 24-70mm f/2.8L v2, 70-200mm f/2.8L IS v2, and the 50mm L f/1.2 thru CanonPriceWatch.com (CPW) and the saved $900 dollars on the purchase.

    $300 of those dollars were in rebates that I would have received regardless of how I purchased, but the additional $600 off the MAP was a bonus I would not have recieved elsewhere just clicking “BUY” at any of the vendor web sites.

    I was hesitant at first, and did not commit until the vendor contacted me thru CPW’s coordination. I expected a small unknown vendor, grey market, and I would have declined. Instead I was contacted by my second favorite vendor (very large and well known…) directly, US products, and the sale was completed without a single issue. The lenses were in my hands less than 72 hours later.

    I think it’s very important people understand CPW does not commit you to the purchase, they just facilitate talking directly with a vendor. You have plenty of time to evaluate the decision to buy or not.

    Using the CPW site does add a couple emails (2) to the purchasing event and a phone call from the vendor, but these events took place quickly in one day. For $600, I’ll write a couple emails and wait for a vendor to contact me versus just clicking BUY on the internet every time.

    I contacted CPW on 7 Oct 14. The vendor contacted me the same day and the lenses were shipped with tracking numbers via UPS on the 8th. In my hands on the 10th.

    Very Happy with my experience and will definitely use CPW again.

  177. September 30, 2014 at 12:46 am

    Ordered the Canon 6D with 24-70 f/4 is lens from [dealer] through the street price deal. Was advertised as being 2649.95 minus a 200 dollar rebate for the body and another 250 dollar rebate for the lens (2199 final price). I think the next best price was from a known NY dealer at 200 more for the body, but that dealer said the lens rebate could not be piggybacked with the 200 body rebate. The folks at CPW convinced me it could and they would stand by their claim, so I took a chance and ordered the kit.

    Ordered the 6D and lens on 9/3, received them shortly thereafter in brand spanking new condition with Canon USA warranties just as they should come off a dealers shelf. Sent in the rebates.

    Just received a total of 450.00 in rebates from Canon today 9/29 so CPW and [dealer] were right about being able to piggyback the two rebates, camera and lens. And since the [dealer] price on the body was already cheaper than A****** or B***H I saved really big bucks on this purchase.

    Could not be happier!

    This was my first time ordering through CPW.

    I’ve had my eye on a 70-200 f2.8 IS II for awhile now and CPW street prices made it happen. Gordon from CPW was friendly and helpful and hooked me up with a reputable dealer for a quick, smooth transaction. With free shipping and no state taxes a brand new lens came in just under what I would have paid for the same lens from the Canon refurbished store. I’ll definitely be back for future purchases. Thanks!

    Wanted the 24mm TS-E II f3.5 lens and Gordon found a really good price from an authorized dealer that I knew and his price was better than I could get from their site. Ordered the lens only to find out they didn’t have it in stock like they said. Gordon jumped right on issue and found another dealer, with a price within a couple of bucks of the after rebate price, so I didn’t have to hassle with Canon Rebate which was even better.

    I would never buy another Lens or Camera without giving pricewatch first shot at it. So far the service has been great and the so have the prices.

    There is no reason not to use their service, hop in and save yourself some money!

    Got the 24-105/4 IS L lens for a great price, from an authorized dealer. Very smooth service, fast transaction, no surprises.

    Don’t hesitate to use the street prices program.

    Got a 70-200 F4L IS for $1059 after rebate from one of the biggest authorized seller. Loved this service, I wish I can discover it before. Just found that I was over paying a lot before! The seller sales was nice and patient. He was able to match other lens’ street prices.

    September 9, 2014 at 8:57 pm

    I had a price-point in mind while looking for the Canon EF 500mm f/4L IS II USM. For months and months, no one was interested in meeting that price. CPW popped-up with their Street Price deal on the lens and it was one dollar under my number, so I jumped on it! Not only was it under my price-point but it arrived with the Canon box inside another protective box that was also nicely packed. I appreciate the extra packing and boxing so that the original box, as huge as it is, was well-protected too. A great deal put together by CPW and supplied from a well-respected source. And what an incredible lens that thoroughly exceeds all of my expectations!!

    I have been eyeing a full frame Canon for quite a while and had been holding off on doing it for some time, mostly because of MAP pricing. Finally with the rebate incentives here it was too good to not ask about it.

    The biggest thing to me was assurance I was getting an authorized dealer camera. I asked a bunch of questions, and I was impressed. Detailed answers, and response times to my emails was 20 minutes to less than an hour. Once I bit the bullet the process was smooth and painless. The person even helped me make sure that my rebate form was filled out correctly afterwards.

    Anyway, I am now the proud owner of a 5d3 with 24-105 lens and Pixma Pro-100 printer. With the savings from street price, rebates, and tax savings I got from ordering through an online retailer the package was almost $1000 OFF of what I would have gotten locally. I usually love to support my local camera shop, but for future big purchases I am sticking with this. Thinking the 70-200 F2.8 II will be my next purchase pretty soon.

    Bought both a 70-200 f2.8 IS USM II and a 24-70 2.8 II lens from the recommended street price vendor. Both times the lenses came within 2 days with no issues. Both Canon rebates (at the time) came in as well.

    This is a GREAT program .. take advantage of it.

    September 9, 2014 at 4:55 pm

    I purchased a 70-200 f2.8 L II IS using street prices. It came to $1999 after Canon’s MIB. No problems whatsoever, everything went on smoothly. I would definitely do it again, I now check CPW almost daily 😉

    September 9, 2014 at 4:18 pm

    I’ve used Street Price/CPW service 3 times. First time I purchased 70-200 f/2.8 II IS and 135mm f/2 – in addition to a discount there was a manufacturer’s rebate. I received rebates for both without any issues. A few months later I purchased Pixma pro-100 with paper at a discount, also with a rebate. I received my rebate and printer cost me NOTHING in the end. I also bought 16-35mm f/4 IS lens at a discount (no rebate on that one yet, alas). Each time I received incredible support, as well as advice from CPW. I wholeheartedly recommend CPW and their program. I am a very happy customer, and I am planning on going through this service again in the near future. Thanks CPW, you rock.

  187. September 9, 2014 at 3:47 pm

    Purchased the 24 70 F2.8L II via the street price. You will be very pleased when you see who you are buying from! You do not have to provide any credit card info before you know who the retailer is. Most likely it is one of the companies you are already doing business with if you buy out of N.Y. I placed my order and received the lens the next day. New in the box with USA warranty how can you beat that!

    September 9, 2014 at 3:44 pm

    Received my brand NEW EF TS-E 17mm/f4 L lens (US model) for which I just paid the “street price”! This has been awesome! Thanks CPW!!

    September 9, 2014 at 3:27 pm

    I’ve made 3 “street price” purchases. All went well. I also tested the seller’s return policy. That, too, was easy. Will use the service in the future!

    I purchased EF 135mm f2 using street price. It is nearly $200 lower than any other sources I can find online and yet from reputable retailer. And I have received $100 rebate from Canon without any trouble. Great experience! Thanks CPW!

    I just bought the EOS 6D and the purchase was so easy. I had previously been burned by one of the NY grey market sellers and was very cautious, but this was completely legitimate and arrived on my doorstep in 3 days, no shipping and no tax. Highly recommend this service!

    I recently purchased a US 70-200 2.8L IS USM Mark II for $1999.95 after rebate. Free shipping and no sales tax was a bonus as well. I was apprehensive about Canonpricewatch initially but feel real confident about it now. Wish I had bought my 5diii through them,,,would have saved at least 200USD!

  193. Niko
    September 9, 2014 at 1:58 pm

    Honest, quick, great price if you combine with a rebate.
    bought a 40mm pankake and a 70-200 f4. CPW set me up with ********* which is a canon authorized retailer. prchase was made on 7/1/2014.
    its not a lie, its not too good to be true. just do it. you FIRST get an invoice from a legit camera store, the invoice comes from an employee with the designated store’s domain and you pay the invoice, they confirmed you payed and give you a shipping/tracking number.

  194. September 6, 2014 at 12:29 am

    Amazing! Got a Mark III for 2,899 + $200 mail in rebate (that I have yet to process) which will end up being a full 1,000 off the sticker price

  195. Don
    August 26, 2014 at 7:26 am

    I was trying to get a dealer who was offering the Canon EOS 1DX camera for the $6899 retail price with what they represent on their website as $300 worth of extras (that I didn’t want or need) thrown in. I tried to get them to substitute an extra battery pack ($165 retail) for the extras and they said no, you will have to throw in another $40 to get that. They didn’t think I was going to walk for over $40, perhaps emboldened by membership in the Canon MAP cartel, but I decided I would keep looking. Shortly after that I found CPW and was able to buy a Canon EOS 1DX for $6199 through the street price program. It came from a different dealer I’d bought from before and the product was new in the box with full U.S. warranty. I added an extra battery pack to the order for a total price of $6364 (free shipping and insurance, no sales tax), a savings of almost $600 from what the other dealer was willing to do. The camera works perfectly and is spectacular. Thanks to CPW. This is a great service. By the way, the dealer I bought the 1DX from has become my new preferred retailer and I have since bought a Canon 16-35 f4 IS lens through them (with a $50 discount that they offered without me asking for it) instead of through the retailer that let me walk over $40 on a $6900 order. A certain big camera equipment retailer better get its head out of its rear end and become a little more flexible.

      September 9, 2014 at 4:07 pm

      I need to correct something. I am looking at the invoice and I paid $6099.99 for the Canon EOS 1DX camera, not $6199. The total with the extra battery pack was $6264.99. I was skeptical about this program initially, fearing one of the low rent Ebay sellers who are notorious for gray market items, extra charges for stuff that’s supposed to be included, etc. I said in my first email that I only wanted to deal with a reputable retailer. The retailer that Gordon referred me to was one I’d used for several previous large purchases, including a color monitor and a refurbished 24-105 lens. Even if you are skeptical about the program, email Gordon and ask all the questions you want. He is very responsive.

    Purchased a 85mm 1.2L using CPW street pricing and got a great deal and saved me about $200 than the best “deal” showing around town. Thanks CPW.

  197. August 24, 2014 at 6:11 pm

    I purchased a Canon 5D Mark III w/ EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM and a Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM through CPW Street Price program. Gordon was great in setting me up with a very reputable dealer. My order came in quickly, I got a great price, and my rebates came in shortly after. Everything went smoothly and I will not hesitate to use this service again when needed. Thank you!

    I purchased a Canon 500mm f/4L II IS lens from an authorized dealer thru street price – saved me $1500! Gordon was great and very prompt with setting up the deal. The dealer was a very reputable store with whom I’ve done business before. The lens was packed securely and shipped via express mail and arrived quickly (free shipping!). Everything was in brand new condition, in factory sealed package, just as promised. I will definitely use this service again.

    I purchased a Canon 5D Mark III in June 2014 from an authorized dealer. The price after the rebate was $2699 with free shipping. Gordon was great in answering questions. He helped me get the deal I wanted from a reputable dealer. Very happy with purchase! Thank you!

    August 15, 2014 at 9:17 am

    Used street price to get a 6D w 24-105 of $2,229 + $200 rebate = $2029, free shipping too. It was a big name 100% authorized dealer. Any future purchases will most likely be through the street price. Gordon from CPW was responsive to all my questions. The customer service from the dealer was great as well. I can’t say thank you enough!

  201. Steve
    August 10, 2014 at 2:13 pm

    I purchased a 400mm f2.8L IS II. Fantastic lens, fantastic seller, fantastic savings and a special thanks to Gordon at pricewatch, who went above and beyond to make sure this deal went smoothly. Thank you!

    July 30, 2014 at 12:42 pm

    I was scared to use CPW’s “sreet price” at first. It was kind of secretive, and the price straddled “too good to be true”. My first instinct was to think I was going to get a grey market item, or fall into a bait and switch scam. With a little research and a better understanding of how MAP’s work I concluded that things were on the up-and-up, and I needn’t fear. I’m really glad I did! The transaction was flawless, the people I dealt with were very friendly, and I got exactly what I wanted, got it on time, and at a great savings over the MAP. Win!

    I purchased a 24-105 L series lens and love it! It retials for around 1050 and I got it for only $659. I’ve been using it for over a week now and love it! Thanks so much CPW for the amazing deal!!!

    Street Price is great. I received a 70-200 f/2.8 II for $1999.99 after the mail-in rebate! Product arrived after 3 days. thanks!

  206. Tom
    July 22, 2014 at 8:33 pm

    Street Price was great, Gordon send an e-mail quickly after I had interest in getting a New Canon 24-70 f2.8 II lens. $1799 without the rebate mess, US warranty and free shipping. That was app $200 less than anyone else had it for! Street Price will be by first place to check when I want something. Can’t wait for the 1DX replacement with the new sensor and the price to drop on the new 16-35mm f4 lens.

  207. July 22, 2014 at 4:52 pm

    Street Price was amazing and easy to use! I received a 70-200 f/2.8 II for $1995.95 after the mail-in rebate! It was very smooth and an easy transaction! Thanks!!

    Requested the 6D+24-105 kit yesterday; received it today. The process was very easy, and I’m pleased with the money I saved. I will check “street prices” the next time I’m ready for a purchase.

  210. Brad
    July 11, 2014 at 9:25 am

    Bought a 6d + 24-105mm kit at “street price” and couldn’t be happier: saved a couple hundred dollars, the communication from CPW and the authorized dealer was prompt, and the item shipped far sooner than I ever expected. I wouldn’t hesitate for a second to complete another purchase using this method!

  211. Kevin
    July 1, 2014 at 9:08 pm

    Among other items, I have been watching the price of the Canon 6D + 24-105mm for a while on CPW. I saw the price fluctuate prior to MAP and missed my opportunity to purchase one. The price that I saw on CPW’s “street price” (in combination with Canon’s rebate) dropped to a point fairly close to my “biting” price…. and I am so glad that I took the bait!

    CPW put me in touch with an authorized dealer with excellent service… easy payment process, very quick 2-day priority delivery.

    Thanks!!

  212. June 27, 2014 at 12:40 am

    I just receive my Brand New 6D+Kit with “street price” and I am really happy with the entire process. Saved more than $300. Seller very reputable. Super professional. great communications. I ordered last Monday and received in less than 3 days. Canon Warranty. I really recommend CPW and “Street price” deals. Definitly will buy again!!!! Thank you

    I bought 6D with grip, 24-70 Ii 2.8 L and 70-200 Ii 2.8L through the street price program. Excellent service and highly recommended. No tax and lower price is an bonus

  215. Jeff
    June 25, 2014 at 12:39 am

    I did the street price deal on a 6D with battery grip. I couldn’t be happier with the experience. Once i submitted my info indicating my desire to participate, the site admin here e-mailed me confirming my interest. I confirmed I was and the next day I got an invoice from the Canon Authorized Seller for the $1599 agreed upon by mail. I paid via Paypal and my 6D arrived just a few days later. The 6D was part of a split kit (ie. it was a body that was part of a 24-105 f/4L kit where the lens had been sold separately) which didn’t bother me at all. I saved a good amount off the listed price advertised on various major photography vendors, got genuine non-gray market equipment, and the process was as painless as any purchase I’ve made. I’d recommend and participate in street price deals again via this site.

    Bought the 70-200 IS mk ii last week at the street price of $1999.95 (after rebate, no tax, free shipping). I am very glad i searched around for the best price. I was not sure and felt skeptical when i saw the price at first. So i emailed CPW and asked a bunch of questions. I gained confidence very quickly through the email exchanges and then went ahead with the purchase. The authorized dealer contacted me right away and was also very professional. He actually worked late to process my order and it was shipped out the next day. Will definitely come back here for future street price purchases.

    June 24, 2014 at 3:37 pm

    I bought a 6D with battery grip for $1599. Both are genuine and completely new. Very happy with purchase.

  219. June 24, 2014 at 10:00 am

    Everything went perfect with a 5d MIII. Within a week I had paid for it, received it, and sent off my rebate and warranty cards. Camera is in great condition and I’m thankful CPW helped me save so much money.

  220. June 24, 2014 at 9:55 am

    I also purchased a 6D with a genuine Canon battery grip for $1599 at an authorized Canon dealer. The personal service was great – everyone was very helpful and quick to respond be it through email or phone calls. The person I spoke to at the dealer/store was very nice and didn’t mind answering any of my questions. I liked that I was able to pay through Paypal. The package was shipped out within a couple hours of purchase and I received it in just a few days. It did indeed arrive with a USA warranty card and everything is working great, Highly recommend.

    I purchased a 6D with a genuine Canon battery grip for $1599 at an authorized Canon dealer. I saved $270, and the processing was similar to that of any online retailer. It was even sent via express shipping for no additional charge.

  222. Brenda
    June 24, 2014 at 9:39 am

    I purchased the 24-70mm II USM for about $500 less than I could get it elsewhere. There was no tax or shipping and I was able to use paypal and therefore keep my credit card info private. It arrived very quickly and I am enjoying using it.

  223. Chris
    June 22, 2014 at 2:27 pm

    I got a 24-105mm thru CPW street price from a retailer. Came with the full Canon USA warranty, the paypal invoice was prompt, and the item came quick…shipped as advertised. It was a great experience!

    June 21, 2014 at 10:02 pm

    Got a 24-70 f/2.8 for a steal. I was sent an invoice by the retailer in Paypal and was a little nervous forking over the money, but I received a tracking code the same day and a few days later I have my brand new lens. Great experience, couldn’t be happier about saving a few hundred bucks!

  225. June 15, 2014 at 10:27 pm

    I bought the 70-200 f/2.8L II $200 cheaper from authorized dealer (no tax, free shipping) than most other authorized dealers using CPW street price form. I don’t know how they do it, but it works 🙂 Thanks!

  226. David
    June 6, 2014 at 3:02 am

    Bought a 70D body from an authorized dealer at $939 via street price which was $60 than the lowest priced retailer. Very good experience with that dealer. Fast shipping and great communication. Will definitely use it again in the future.

    I got my 5D Mark III yesterday. CPW’s street price saved me $500 over the major online retailers. I will be watching for more deals in the future!

    Purchased mine for $2299.99. I haven’t submitted my rebate form yet but once that goes through the price should come done to $1999.99. Excellent deal. Extremely satisfied. Why would you go through any other channel. Highly recommended.

    Purchased my Canon 6d using “street price” and couldn’t be happier. I got a great deal from an authorized dealer and feel that canon price watch is doing a phenomenal job at getting it’s customers quality products and fantastic prices. They stand behind their buyers and I always feel safe when purchasing gear through them. Highly recommend!!

    I purchased a US 70-200 2.8L IS USM Mark II for $1999.95 after rebate. Free shipping and no sales tax was a bonus as well. Transaction went perfectly. 🙂
