The Mark 3 I got from them clearly says ebay on them though. Maybe they do a special receipt for these rebates?
Not sure, I don't remember what my receipt says for the Mark II I purchased a few months ago. I did have to send it to Canon after using it for a while (bent a CF bin, nothing to do with BeachCamera who was great to deal with). Canon had no problem with the receipt/wrranty card etc. FWIW.
Rebates are processed differently, so that's another story.
what is the lowest price that you guys found the 5D Mark II on slickdeals from a reputable dealer?
When the body was going for refurb at 20% off, it was like $1408+tax. Thats the cheapest I have seen it. Body only, I think the cheapest I've seen is like $1800. With the kit, its been as low as $2400-2450, with re-selling the kit lens you'd get it to $1600 or so.
If you can sell the printer for $100, this would be about the best deal you can get, when you add in Ebay Bucks and the rebate
any idea whether upcoming 6D is better than 5D Mark 2?
I've been looking to jump on a semipro camera for a while. The up coming 6d was an utter disappointment. 11 AF sensors epic fail on canon save yourself the money and go with the 5d mkii. 1499 - 40 eBay bucks sell printer for easy 100 = 1369. What a deal! Vs $2099 for a 6d. You only gain GPS and wifi. While cool it doesn't affect the quality of photos
Great deal after rebate, I guess they are trying to make room in their warehouse for the new D600. This is a great FF camera even for a 4 year old tech. If you are not highly invested in Lens for canon, I would really look into the D600. It might be the best entry level FF in the market,and pack full of feature that you will not be able to find in the MK2 and the new upcoming 6D.
I love my Canon lens so I will not be switching to Nikon anytime soon, but if I had to choose as of right now which body is ahead of the game I would say Nikon is giving more for the money. Lets hope they do so with their lens too. I hope canon learns their lesson from this year as they have been defeated to the market by Nikon, as they are playing catch up, and bring something new to the table for their body down the road.
