A few reputed stores have it at $949. Looks like a decent price.

General rule, if a place is selling something for significantly less than B&H or Adorama, ask yourself why. Is it a grey-market camera that won't have warranty coverage in your area? Are they removing the OEM accessories with the intent of trying to sell them back to you at an inflated price? As they say...caveat emptor.

$949 is a good price if everything is legit...it's not if there's some shadiness they're not telling you about.

It's a crap shoot at best. Something is not as it seems,myself I would not trust it.

It appears everything is on the Up and Up, Amazon dropped their price and B&H moved to match:

Amazon $949

B&H $949

I see it's the body only, not the full camera with lens. That is still $1,249US.

Re: Sellers are Amazon, B&H

Sorry I forgot to mention it is for body only. My source is here (http://www.techbargains.com/). B&H's advertised price is 1199 with 100 instant saving but once I click on "more details" to put it in the cart, the price is 949. Amazon's in-cart price is the same 949. However the link for Adorama still shows the 1199 price even if I put it into the cart.

Myself I am glad I went with the full camera and STM 18-135 lens, because Best buy messed up my first order, I got  two $50 gift card right away,then B&H dropped the original price to $1,249 and I price matched it at Best Buy and I received a $200 gift card.

So after getting the full camera, I ended up with $300 in gift cards. I will also get $25 from Best Buy for being a rewards customer. So because I already have found that the STM lens,really is a big improvement over the standard 18-135 lens when making a video,it was a good choice.

A certain brick and mortar store in NJ  is at $849 with shades of gray me thinks.

For another hunnerd bux, I'll fly with the guys who tell it like it is straight up front.

Merry Christmas to all Good Girls and Boys.... and me too !

Amazon is selling the 70D with 18-135mm stm kit for $1099.00, it's $150.00 less the the 18-55mm stm kit, good deal.

Also a good note for Amazon I purchased the 70D body only last week for $1049.00 and today they credited me $100.00, Merry Christmas to me.
