After you buy this you will likely need some lenses. I recommend reading reviews at http://www.photozone.de/ for Canon EOS full format lenses. If you want a full set of primes (14, 28, 35, 50, 85, 100, 135) be prepared to spend ~$400 for each decent lens, for about $3000+. That's double what the camera costs. You could buy one Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8 USM L IS II and one Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8 USM L II but that would cost $4800 for the same quality as a set of mid-grade primes. (You'll also want to spend $300 for a decent tripod, $30 for a circular polarizing filter, $300 for a flash, $20 for a wireless shutter, $75 for a 32gb 600x compact flash card, $300 for an IPS monitor, $70 for a color calibration device...)

pretty sweet deal if the printer rebate can be used.

$1600 for a 5dii + printer. Not bad.

Because it would be $1,599 after the $400 rebate.

The printer rebate is $400, that makes the body and printer cost just $1600. Post the printer with the hopes of netting $100 (very possible, I just got $125) and now you've got a brand new 5dII for $1500, which is better than paying $150 more for a refurb, or waiting around hoping for another $2400 kit combo deal.

One thing I would caution is to make sure you get a receipt with no mention that it was bought on Ebay, just because the rebate is very specific about not using auction/3rd party sites. But, I know with the Focus Camera deals from last spring, they would send you a receipt with no mention of Ebay, so it should be similar for Beach Camera here

I wouldn't worry. If becachamera says it'll work, they'll make sure everything is right.

they aren't a fly by night operation.

what I am worried about is my current 5DIIs. They just lost a lot of value. lol.

When I ordered one of the eBay deals through BeachCamera a few months ago, there was a "regular" receipt in the box. Not sure if they'll do the same, but just FYI. So assuming they haven't changed their procedures, you should be good to go for the rebate.

Get the $400, sell the printer, and you have a very sweet deal on a 5K mkII

Yeah, this is the slickest deal on the camera without the kit. I ended close to the same price last thanksgiving after selling the kit lens. Especially since I haven't seen these kinda of prices in a very long time.


NOTE: you will get 40$ in ebay bucks too. So, this is even slicker.

i was just saying that you'll get more value by getting it fully serviced and then selling it.
new shutter, mirror assembly and you basically have a semi-new camera. provided the body isn't beat to hell.

The Mark 3 I got from them clearly says ebay on them though. Maybe they do a special receipt for these rebates?

Theoretically, yes, its a little better (slightly better AF, general sensor upgrades), but, nobody will have it until December and that assumes that the pre-order back-up doesn't take a while to sort out.

Even then, its only a slight improvement

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.

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

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

Yeah, the beauty of this deal is that, with the printer, you get the same price from an authorized dealer, which can matter in case you get a dud. And then with printer selling it gets even cheaper.

I guess it could go lower, I'm just not sure by how much.

honestly, this is the sub $1500 camera people were dying for.

The only downside is the crappy AF system, but you're using the center point 90% of the time anyways.

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.

This is a phenomenal camera. I've taken some absolutely amazing pictures with it - the latest blew up nicely to 24x36 without any artifacts or pixelation.

The price is good but the 5DII is pretty ancient. Nikon just released the full frame D600 with a new sensor, 39pt autofocus for $2100 list. Maybe Canon will match that soon.

pauladams11 09-20-2012 10:54 AM

Why do you think they run this through ebay and not put it right on their own site? You can get only a "body only" from their site for $1899, but no body+printer package. Don't they have to pay ebay fees? Sure would make it more clear-cut on the rebate issue.

On the fence on this one. I got a 7D just to do video (most of my still photo gear is Nikon) and like it, but I could sell it and pick this up. Argh... curse you, SD! #FirstWorldProblem

I believe this is a daily deal. So ebay either cuts the fees or even helps the seller with some extra incentives.

ebay is trying to transtition to a BIN store.

thank for this heads up. i got it one of my ebay account so saved another $100 (it caps out at 100 otherwise would have saved $200).

so after all said and done - 1400 for new 5D MII body is amazing deal.

Yep, the code made me bite the deal. $1499 is a similar price to the refurb I ordered from Canon a few months back ($1407+tax after 20% discount) and had to return because it was defective. I didn't order another refurb becuase it was out of stock and then Canon lowered the CLP discount.

pauladams11 09-20-2012 11:04 AM

I didn't see a restriction in the fine print on the rebate form, but if I got this same rebate a year ago with my 7D (through a different retailer, in case that matters), does anyone know if I'm ineligible to get this one?

nitrotang 09-20-2012 11:05 AM

Just read the fine print of the rebate form before biting. "This promotion is valid only for purchases made at Beach Camera or beachcamera.com or buydig.com store or directly through such dealer’s own website. This promotion is NOT valid for purchases made through a marketplace, auction or other third-party website portal."

Doesn't that mean buying through eBay won't allow you to get the rebate?

pretty sure, yea.

to make sure check the rebate promo number. if they match, no-go. if they don't match, go.

Good idea... though I'm having a hard time finding the promo code (is it the "Dept" line in the address you send the form to?), but then again I also missed the "(Limit 1 claim per household)" on the third line from the top of the form (I thought it would be in the fine print below). Still unsure if that only applies to the rebate on one bought through Beach, or if that's regardless of seller.

Good thing I'm a digital packrat... probably a PDF stuck in some folder somewhere.

Edit:
I looked up rebate forms from different retailers and found (on the rebate form PDF):
Beach Camera -- Dept. 819101178
B&H Photo -- Dept. 819101172
Adorama -- Dept. 819101042

They all seem to go to the same PO Box and address, but with these slightly different Dept. codes. Opinions?

ejicon 09-20-2012 11:27 AM

Coupon code expires on the 23rd & the codes are tied to your eBay account.

pretty random so to speak... I have close to 5 eBay accounts (3 of which I don't use anyways) and I always get coupons on the accounts I rarely use....So maybe they are trying to get new business.

What amazes me is that my primary account (with close to 40k activity in last 7 years) never gets any coupon

cobains 09-20-2012 11:50 AM

This is tempting. I've been looking for a good 5D Mark II deal and this is it, but now with the 6D and Nikon d600 I'm not 100% on this as I was.

I can't decide if I want to jump ship to the d600 since the specs on that are nice, but that means all new equipment...

P.S. sorry for bloating the thread.

EDIT: Just realized that the 5Dm2 won't shoot video at 60fps. I *love* the ability to do smooth half-speed slow-motion output, which I have with my crop-sensor 7D... not sure why they didn't include that functionality on the 5Dm2. Did it come out before the 7D? Anyway, might be a deal-breaker for me. :(
D600 too expensive for now... I'll wait for some deals/rebates... it does shoot at 60fps video, though.

ninjarobert 09-20-2012 11:56 AM

Been waiting for a good deal on the Mark II. Thumbs up OP!

I called BeachCamera. The guy said the invoice will come from BeachCamera so there will be no problem using the rebate. Weeeeeeeeeeeeeee!


EDIT: I was wrong about the package deal on the beachcamera site. They included the $200 rebate in their final price. :(
Quote:

By the way, there's a package deal on BeachCamera.com that includes the printer, memory card, and other stuff for $2,007.40.
http://www.beachcamera.com/shop/p...S5DM2#tabs (click value packages tab) I almost bought that, but I wanted teh ~$40 in ebay bucks :)

gnod 09-20-2012 12:06 PM

I guess it really depends on the invoice of beachcamera but in the rebate form it states: "Offer does not apply to purchases of refurbished or used products nor for a camera and printer packaged together and sold for one price."

Can anyone who previously purchased packaged deals like this, confirm that the invoice shows the final price is a combination of 2 prices, and not just 1?

thanks!

Canon already released the 6D, which is their replacement for the 5dII.

People called the rebate center for the B+H deal that sold the items in combo, and the rebate center acknowledge that they would honor the rebate despite the language, so you should be safe.

question for you photographers
 
What would you consider a better fullframe camera between 5D Mk II or upcoming 6D for an amateur photographer. My previous cameras were 650D, 50D, and 7D now looking to move up to a full frame.

The 6D appears to be a good starter camera for amateur photographers. No one has one yet so it's going to be a tough one to say it's better/worst than A&B.

Base on the specs and what's on paper, the 6D will have a significant upgrade in technology and performance over the 5Dii but will be shy of the features that the 5Diii currently has. Canon always plays it safe not to take away the spot light from any of their cameras on their current line-up. Figure the 6D to be a stripped down 5Diii.

I would label the 6D as a entry level full frame camera for people wanting to get into full frame photography. It's a different world that everyone should step into sometime in their photography career.

5d mk2 would be your best bet. since the AF on the mk2 uses old school 5d mk1 tech you will get better AF with the 6d specially in low light since it has a -3 ev sensitivity ( which is crazy for any camera in the market ). The 6d would be better for video special if you have STM lens so it auto focus in live view ( that's no biggy if you use magic lantern ). 6d use SD and 5D use compact flash. You see what you need. I would choose 5d mk 2 for the price , but i would choose d600 over 5dmk2.

If you have a lot of EF lens then you wouldn't want to go with nikon, but if you have a lot of EF-S lens maybe it wouldn't be a bad idea.

I love my MK2 and my Mk3, but really what matters the most is the Lens i put on it.

Also I forgot to mention VF coverage is 97% on the 6d and 98% on the 5d2 and 100% on d600. which ever gives me the best coverage would be the camera for me since I know what I see is what I'm going to get out of my shots.

pauladams11 09-20-2012 12:46 PM

Called Beach and they confirmed #1) receipt would come without ebay markings and would work with rebate, and #2) since I'm using this rebate for a different body than the last time I used the $400 body+printer rebate, it would still work. So, I just couldn't pass this one up. $2000 - $400 - $100(printer) - $40(ebay bucks) - $20 for using Discover through Paypal = $1440. I've got a 5D ("mark 1") I was using to play around with full-frame, which I can probably sell for $800-$900, so I upgraded for about $600.

Also, I checked used prices on 5Dm2 bodies on craigslist, and they're all listing above $1500. Pretty slick. Thanks, OP! Repped.

EDIT: Anyone actually using the PIXMA printer? I was going to sell it, but if it's decent, maybe I should consider keeping it since I'm only losing out on $100-$150 in sale-price on CL. With ink/paper prices, it's always seemed (in the past) to be a better deal to buy prints from photo-labs.

m109rider 09-20-2012 12:55 PM

liquidcool 09-20-2012 01:08 PM

For those comparing 5D II and 6D:

http://www.dpreview.com/products/...anon_eos6d

Basically, the 6D is a 60D/5D2 hybrid. It falls short of the 7D in some areas, and the 5D2 on max shutter speed, flash sync speed, and megapixels. Of course, there has not been any extensive independent testing and there won't be until (probably) January or Feb. of next year.

I've researched the 2 extensively and I think the 6D is worth $200 more, but $500 is a tough call. It depends if there are any must haves for you in the specs. For me, even though the 6D AF is a disappointment, I'll take any improvement I can get.

I'm really hoping that deals on the 5D2 bring down the 6D price, as I agree it's overpriced right now.

I emailed them a couple of hours ago, and I still haven't heard back.

The 5DMII was out before the 7D.

Have been on the fence for a 5D Mark II for a while now. However, I came across a preview article on the upcoming EOS 6D a couple of days ago, it changed my mind. In terms of capability, the EOS 6D is placed somewhere between 5D Mark II and III. That is what I will get in December. Cannot justify plopping down ~2K on 2008's technology, which 5D Mark II is.

blooper 09-20-2012 02:41 PM

I'd personally rethink that. I guess it depends on what you are going to use it for.

ejicon 09-20-2012 03:23 PM

All in all, the 6D and the 5Dii are Cameras that can take HD videos and are NOT camcorders.
They're meant to shoot photographer and take a quick video while you're at it. Like many users have posted, it all depends on what you're going to do with the camera. Personally.. I'm a photographer. I shoot stills, so image quality, is the most important thing to me. The technology, HD function, Wifi this and that and GPS are bells and whistles for me. When it comes to the images that the 5Dii and the 6D produce, if there are no differences, my $500+- extra dollars will go to the 5Dii.

P.S.

BeachCamera is shipping orders right away. Shipping confirmation already emailed. Great Scott!

ti97 09-20-2012 03:29 PM

The 5D Mk II, although older than the 6D, has a better build. It's a more professional body with complete magnesium alloy body. The 6D is built towards general consumer in mind. Smaller body with plastic and magnesium. The 5D Mk II takes phenomenal pictures and the announcement of the 6D doesn't make it any less of a camera. Given how the senor of the 5D Mk III compares with the 5d Mk II, my guess is the image quality of the 6D will be similar. Overall, great price for this camera + high quality printer. I would put the difference towards some nice glass.

I have 5D2 and at this price point, I would not hesitate to buy one again if there's a need for it. If I had to upgrade, I would get 5D3 not 6D for obvious reason. I would invest on L lenses than camera body IMHO.

ejicon 09-20-2012 03:55 PM

Also remember the good old fashion saying: "You have to pay to play."
As with the 5Dii and the 7D and just about every camera Canon has released in the past, you're going to pay a premium for new technology. Canon released their 5Diii with a $3,500 msrp when it was first released. Now, it's down to $3,349 in a matter of months. At the rate the Nikon is pushing out cameras that are beating Canon's cameras on paper, the 6D, 5diii and 1DX's msrp prices will be all over the place between now and next year.

benlg 09-20-2012 04:41 PM

Sweet deal, nice find OP. Seriously thinking about trading in my nikon for this.

OptimumG 09-20-2012 04:56 PM

Debating between getting this or waiting for the 6D to go on sale. I definitely don't want to pay the extra $500+ for the 6D, but there probably won't be a sale for another year or so.

ocZZZ 09-20-2012 04:58 PM

You would take this antique over the Nikon D600 for $500 more? That would be a mistake. Also, this printer typically sells for 120-150 on craigslist.

Hah, okay, I'll look more into it. Upgrading from my XTI, so I'd need to get a new walk around lens since my 17-50 sigma won't fit on it anymore. Need to factor that in before I jump on this deal.

Anyone know how long it'll be at this price?

You're right about the printer, since you can get it for $120 from online retailers (after instant rebate and $200 MIR).
By my math, after MIR, ebay bucks, 1% Discover cashback, and selling the printer, I'll be in the $1450 neighborhood, making it $650 less than the D600. The choice probably has more to do with what kind of glass the potential buyer already has. Anyway, a 5Dm2 is still selling for $1550 and up on CL around here, so I figure I can use it for a while and break even or only lose a little in the resale if something comes out I'd rather use.

indeed. i have a d300s, and might just keep on using it since CL here is ~850, in 2 years itll be 700 or 650 while a brand new camera like the d600, in a few years, itll only be 1400$ used or so. Though i am a nikon fan the 5dm2 is nice but dont know too much abou canons

if you dont have any lenses, you should look at the d600. The specs are SUPERIOR to the 6D. dual sd slots, line in for sound when recording videos, pop up flash (useful on the go) 39 AF tracking etc you can look it up

i dont use canon, but if you are upgrading, for nikon at least, d700 is good for shooting (like 5dmarkii) and the d600 is fx too (like 6D) but lacks the quality (lots more AF, no CF slot, Noisier, etc). I assume its the same for the 6D. The 6D, however, is poor quality technology for todays age.

The reason i say that is because the 6D, in 2012

Does not have:
Dual memory card (only 1 sd card slot)
No pop up flash (for on the go)
less than 20 AF points (so low in todays technology even amateur dslr entry levels have more and is bad because FX is much larger area span)
No line in like every fx camera made today has to listen while recording.

theres more than that, you should look it up
a comparison between 6D and D600, you will see (spec wise) that 6D failed big time and in my opinion, it looked like canon took literally only a few weeks to make this camera (just tweeked up a the 5dm2 a bit)

i say you should try to save for the 5dm3 The superior FX in todays market (D800 isnt as good as it, and im a nikon user)

a comparison between 6D and D600, you will see (spec wise) that 6D failed big time and in my opinion, it looked like canon took literally only a few weeks to make this camera (just tweeked up a the 5dm2 a bit)

i say you should try to save for the 5dm3 The superior FX in todays market (D800 isnt as good as it, and im a nikon user)

dual memory slots is really personal preference. some people demand it and some people don't care for it.
Canon doesn't do popup flash on FF cameras. no real need. most people don't use a FF for on-the-go shooting.
it's 11 cross points. the d600 is only 9 cross points. as everybody learned from the 5dii, non-cross points are crap.
eh. i think serious video people will upgrade to the 5diii. and serious video people use external audio and just sync in post. the audio processing in dslrs is crap.

Hard to answer this -- kindof like "when should I buy my first car with a V8 engine?" Many pros work with crop-sensor bodies, so it's not a huge limitation on your artistry (IMHO).

Maybe the best answer I can give is a combination of: 1) when you can afford FF glass, 2) when you want your WA lenses to capture all they were intended to capture, 3) when you want your fast lenses (e.g., f/1.8 and wider) to get closer to a medium format look, 4) when you are tired of the limited view (through the viewfinder) in your crop-sensor body, 5) probably a couple other things I can't think of right now.

#1 is (for many people) the biggest limitation. After you get a $100 50mm f/1.8, there's not a lot of "cheap" autofocus FF lenses to choose from, if you're accustomed to thinking $600 is a lot for a lens (in the crop-sensor world). An 85mm f/1.8 is a good (relatively inexpensive) choice, esp. if you get one used.

That's the scary thing, the 6D only has 1 cross type sensor, not 11, AND it only works if you're using a lens with a max aperture of 2.8 or greater. It's marginally better than the 5D2, although supposedly is much better in low light, but we have no proof if it's accuracy in those conditions. The weakness of the D600 AF is that the points only cover the same central area that the D7000 has, so your subject has to be pretty well centered, or at least not off to the sides.

woah. reread the specs and yea, it is only a single cross sensor. the early specs said all 11 were cross.
wow. this really kills the 6d. the d600 af is vastly superior then.

eh, the 5dii sensors were really tight too, so even if you did have high contrast ont he edge points, they weren't too far way from the middle.

Amen. This has been a pet peeve of mine with all the FF bodies. Even the flagship ones have this limitation. I'm sure there's a reason for it, but it can be frustrating.

I read someone tested the 6D focusing on a really dark test subject and focus was very good. If you use center point this might be a good camera.

The wife wants a new camera and while she would be happy with a t3 or 4 I just cant get myself to buy those. I need something of better quality and in the mid range (about $1000-$1500, if thats considered mid). I was seriously looking at the 7D but now with deals like this I would consider the 5Dmii. I dont know much about these camera besides the hours of google research and SD posts. I understand the FF and crop but have not used a camera like these ever. I would appreciate some opinions (pros/cons) between purchasing the 7D or 5Dmii at this price. I would also probably buy a decent lens for it as well (any suggestions for that would be great too) Also, the camera would be used for stuff like family get togethers, sports, trips etc. The average Joe use.

You need to look up what a camcorder is. I don't care if WHAT SHOW or movie shot with the 5Dii. They are not Camcorders! Nice try.

Since when does the average Joe need a Full Frame DSLR?? :lol:

Jokes apart, based on what you are saying I think your wife would be better off learning on a smaller Rebel series like the T3i or T4i or even a T2i before moving up to the full bodied SLR's like 5D M2's. The CMOS sensors on these Txx camera's are nearly identical and produce great images......

I jumped on this deal after 4 years of using different Txx models before deciding to upgrade. It took some time and learning to fully appreciate what a 5D can do and not be as intimidated..

A T2i can be found for $400 on a good deal like this which is just 1/4th the cost of a 5D 2 at today's price...... it's a great camera for lugging around for general use, takes great pictures and video..... and you won't feel as bad if she loses interest in the hobby ;)

And if you need good info on all these models, the forums at dpreview.com are very valuable. Good luck!

I think if the argument here is if a 5D M2 can be used as an "everyday camcorder" then the answer is NO mainly since a camcorder serves a lot more functions, is easy to use, works well under most conditions (low light), is compact etc.

Can a 5D MK2 do all this? Sure. But not as easily as a camcorder can. And not to mention it's bulky and requires different kinds of lenses to do what a camcorder does effortlessly. The end result may be a lot better than a camcorder (excellent DOF, isolating the subject from the background and a real film-like feel for the video) but for someone shooting their kids recitals or soccer games, it may be unrealistic to expect to carry a 5D M2 around. It's primarily designed to take great images and just so happens to shoot good HD video too.

Hah, I've been using my Canon XTi for about 6-7 years and I finally bit on this. Definitely start on one of the T series as busnest said. Unless you do have a largely disposable income, then go ahead and buy this, but also make sure you budget enough to buy nice lenses since that will be a limiting factor.

Anyone considering the squaretrade warranty? $210 (+105 for accidental) for an extra 2 years. I normally wouldn't even consider getting one, but I've had my old camera's power supply break a year after warranty and it cost me about $200 to change it. Any input?

Look into a personal items insurance plan. If you have current home-owners insurance or no insurance at all, you can easily contact Farmers Insurance and sign up for a few bucks a year. All my gear is insured.

If anything happens, they'll give me the value of the lens based on their evaluation and can put that money towards buying a new one.

If you read the terms and conditions of the rebate - a certified mail receipt is required for any claims of lost/stolen mail. On $400 of rebate, that is a YES.

For the rebate, which barcodes do we need to cut out? On the camera box, there is the one with the sticker and there's also the one with the picture of the camera on the bottom. On the printer box, there's the part that says proof of purchase, but there's also the part below the dotted line.
Thanks!

Actually, for the printer, I'm assuming I just cut around the dotted line of the UPC that says proof of purchase. How about the camera?

Get the $400, sell the printer, and you have a very sweet deal on a 5K mkII

I've called beachcamera and asked them about this. They will send itemized receipt along w/ the camera, so it does not say ebay.

All things being equal I would take the 6D over the 5DII but I'm hoping that when the 6D materializes (at full price no less), the 5DII will be possible at around $1200-1300 or so as an SD. I don't think that is too far off given this deal puts the body alone around $1500. The only problem is if they really have stopped production, the stock will eventually end.

For a combination deal, nice.

I don't see how this is a great deal..

The camera, body only, sells for $1300-$1400 on e-bay (My analysis from seeing a few bids end at this price and from seeing buy out prices. You can also buy the printer from e-bay for $149 from a reputable source of cheaper if you're willing to buy from someone without the top seller mark. This means you're paying $1459-1559 by buying these items separately. Which in the end is cheaper than the $1559 you'd be buying it for from this deal and you also wouldn't have to worry about the rebates and all.

Unless of course i'm missing something....

Damn, coupon code doesn't seem to be working anymore =/. Is anyone else having any trouble with it?

Would these be new cameras from authorized dealers?

New versus old. Warranty versus no warranty. Canon repairs start from $250 and up.

Yeah - checked today. Rebate received, audit completed, Rebate approved ;)

Wow, they rejected my rebate since it was purchased through a "marketplace, auction, or third-party website". Beachcamera is saying I gave the rebate center the wrong receipt but they only gave me the ebay invoice. Canon rebates is saying a whole bunch of other untruthful stuff like I didn't include the UPC.

Anyone else run into this situation?

Awww crap. Found the receipt hidden in the box. Let's see if I can convince Canon to still give it to me.

ashishdc 11-13-2012 09:21 AM

Need the price to come don further. And I don't need the printer, there are too many of them in the market for resale

LOL seriously WTF just happened???

vastmax 11-13-2012 09:33 AM

OK, now it kinda works on their site. the code is active.

Total is $1948 shipped for 5D and printer minus $400 MIR = $1548, which is better than the price listed on FP!

Well, what people ask on CL and what they actually sell for is another story. Your $1500 is within a reasonable range but I doubt the people asking $1850 are getting any kind of valid responses and I'm sure when people offer them $1400, they just think they are getting "low balled" instead of realizing they are asking an unreasonable price to start with.

joogle 11-13-2012 10:14 AM

how is this 2 month old thread now on the FP?

vastmax 11-13-2012 10:34 AM

does anyone know if the code will be valid until Friday (payday)?

cdog90260 11-13-2012 10:35 AM

sweet deal. I LOVE my 5D2. Shot crap, I mean crop for 6 years before going FF, and my only regret was why I waited so long.
