Lowest price on a new gray market 5ds

Is Canon dumping these cameras in the US. The price has been going down from about $1150 a few weeks ago and now is below 1K. If you prefer the 5DSR, it's 45% more expensive. You know where to get it:

Even though I have absolutely no need for a 5Ds, at this price it is mighty tempting!  Must resist GAS!

That is an international model from a seller with mixed reviews. You decide if you want to trust both. I'm trying to decide those two things myself.

I bought my 5D4 as a grey market model.  I have zero regrets going that route.  Good chance my next body will be grey market also.

I've never bought from this seller, but I believe they are one of the reputable ones on ebay.

Re: Lowest price on a new gray market 5ds

Your objections have been well discussed in other threads. The camera does not care how it is labeled.  It takes the same pics. You can always pay 4 times more for peace of mind.

No problem buying from either of the two big sites. Both warranty that you get what is advertised. Amazon is a bit faster on returns if the product is sold under the Amazon Prime label, but it will cost you a little more (from the same vendor).

If you are in the market for a DSLR. This is the best value money can buy.

A third of the launch price. Cannot go wrong.

is this on Ebay? i can see just little bit of it on the top right corner!

i purchased a 5DsR for $1550 on ebay a few weeks ago but now i am debating if i want to buy a 5Ds at this price as a back up. i would like to stay with dslr as long as i can, especially at this caliber high rez sensor! i have lots of fun with my 5DsR and learn more about it everyday. highly recommended.

With being able to get a Square Trade warranty with it, you can have your piece of mind. Nice deal!

Canon dumping--no

Some buyers bought several shipping containers of these camera and are trying to unload them before the "community at large" figures out they are yesterday's toys.

To some, these are toys to be discarded for something shiny and new. Yet, to others, these are powerful tools that can be had for a fraction of what one would pay for something comparable and new.

i love that, a great camera for 1/4th of the original price, and it will be just as good and versatile for another decade!
