With the furore expressed by some over the EOS 5D Mk III and the recent drop in price of the MK II, I thought I would take a look at the price of the refurbished bodies available direct from Canon USA. Sure enough the price there has dropped $239. You can pick yours up for just $1,759.20.
Buying refurbished can be a good way to save money on lenses too. How about a refurbished 50mm f/1.2L for $1,295.20 or a 85mm f/1.2L II for $1,759.20? Every item has a 90-day limited warranty, plenty enough time to check for optical or mechanical defects.
New lenses are available at competitive prices. The EF8-15mm f4L, for instance, is available for $1,399.00, There are savings to be had with other pro-level optics as well and you can pick up the usually 'out of stock' items, such as the outstanding EF 200mm f/2L IS listed at $5,999.00, and it's no dearer than Adorama.
