Canon is selling 5D3 at USD3000 in most local camera stores in Hong Kong and comes with warranty from Canon HK, not grey market goods without warranty. Canon is taking a big hit from a lot of their loyal fans from Hong Kong. Most of the accusation is that Canon get you hooked with your piles of L-lenses and dare you to sell at a loss to change to Nikon/Sony. I don't necessary agree with the accusation, but this general feeling is pretty negative to the brand and the rise of the mirrorless systems (especially with the anticipation of a Sony FF mirrorless coming in the next 12-18 months??), people are just playing the waiting game and does not want to be suckered by Canon.
