buying new 5d mk2 body only - taken out of the kit-box
-- hide signature --

Hello everyone

I am very close to buying a 5d mk2 and I am only lookin for the body only version.

My local vendor, whom I talked to on the phone, say they have only kit versions for sale ( in their stock ) but they have a good offer for the body only.
I assume this means that they somehow disassembly the kit, am i right?
Is it safe to buy the body like this? Could there be any guarantee issues?

Are they allowed to sell like this without jeopardizing the guarantee or smth else?

Is thin common and done by more vendors in order to increase their sales and profit?

I don't know if my problem is really an issue for you guys, i am just very concerned about my acquisition, which is now available after six months of waiting.

Please give me your best advice.

Thank you very much,
