Strange 5Dlll in Thailand
May 11, 2012

I went into Bangkok today to check out a new Canon MarklV. Ended up buying a new Canon 300mm f2,8 ll lens. What a great piece of engineering that is. And sharper than my 300mm f2.8 IS USM also.

Anyway I went to several stores looking and they all had the Mark lll sitting on the shelves. Bodys as well as kits. The last place I stopped, where I bought the 300 had a slew of them. I finally asked the guy what was up. Also I asked him where the Nikon D800 was I wanted to see one.

His exact words to me in Thai. Was, we cannot sell the Mark lll. And the D800's are sold out before we get a shipment? I don't know if that is an indication of the sales or not? But here in Thailand they are in everystore. I asked him how much they were. After buying the lens. He said wait they will be on sale in a month or so, was his thinking.

So they aren't to popular over here anyway it looks like to me.

Anyone else notice that in Asia? Or is it just a freak thing I saw so many. Maybe a big shipment just came in or something?
