"I know what you mean. Last week, I tried to look up a place on eBay called "PMI Digital" (they're selling the 5D Mark III for $3,200). Their page said they were an authorized dealer, but I couldn't find them on the list. I finally figured out that their "brick & mortar" establishment is called "Profeel Marketing, Inc." (Profeel?!?), which is listed."
"PMI / Profeel sells on ebay for low prices. They aren't much for customer service, but they are a authorized dealer, and many buy from them. I've even bought a lens from them.
Undoubtedly, there are some inactive dealers on the list, and many times, the parent company name and the DBA name are totally unrelated, so its not easy to tell.
I'd worry more about companies that are not on the list than ones that are, and are inactive, temporarily or otherwise. You can always ask a company if they are authorized and under what name. If they do not reply, or put you on hold, its their loss not yours."
You may have gotten lucky with the model that you bought from them, but this one clearly states that it's an import model (which means no Canon US warranty support) if you click on the 'What's in the box' icon.
nice to see 6D going down bit by bit... HIt $1500 and ill say goodbye to my 500d.
A few months ago, when someone mentioned 6D at $1500, you'd get a "What you talking about, Willis?!" response.
Now, with the 6D going for close to $1600 authorized reseller, it's looking like $1500 is definitely a reasonable possibility - perhaps even before Oct, when the deals really start to pop up.
Sometimes it's important to understand exactly how much you don't know.
Don't use SnapSort, don't cite SnapSort. (WikiPedia, on the other hand, is actually pretty good. Don't dis WikiPedia).
