Another Canon killer deal, probably the best I have seen so far for an EOS M kit.
Top Rated Plus eBay seller Bigvalueinc (98.3% positive ratings) has the Canon EOS M with both the EF-M 22mm f/2 STM and EF-M 18-55mm IS STM lenses and the SpeedLite 90EX for ridicolous $389.99. New item in original box. That’s the best EOS M deal I have seen so far. All color option available. Please note what the seller says:
This camera may be an imported model. It is completely identical to the USA model and is produced by the same factories. This product comes set in English as a standard, with USA connections, and English manuals. Imported models do not carry a USA manufacturer warranty card. Your purchase is covered by a BigValueInc store warranty which covers you for 1 Year. Please view below in our terms and conditions for details.
The seller doesn’t have a stellar rating but eBay regularly feature them in the Daily Deals section. Hurry up, this deal wont keep the price for long (usually they raise it after a few hours).
Another killer deal on eBay, featured in today’s Daily Deals.
Seller beststopdeals (98.4% positive ratings) has the EOS 6D with the EF 24-105mm f/4L IS lens for just $1999.99. New USA model, free shipping in the US. Hurry up as such offers usually won’t last long.
Btw, there is another super deal that still alive. Top Rated Plus eBay seller Bigvalueinc (98.3% positive ratings) has the EOS 5D Mark III for $2550. USA model in original box. That’s at least $550 off compared to other sellers. bigvalueinc’s note: The Canon EOS 5D Mark III Body may come in a kit box. The Canon EOS 5D Mark III Body for sale is 100% Brand New, Never Used. Lens has been removed from Kit box and sold on a separate auction. The seller doesn’t have a stellar rating but eBay regulary feature them in the Daily Deals section.
A lot of brands have embraced the retro look for their cameras (especially if mirrorless). Some comments suggest that Canon will not go that way.
Instead, Canon will put focus and attention on lenses in the next years, since lenses are better suited to build a “brand stickiness”, that is: keep customers on their side (Canon’s side).
Update: more information in this CPN article.
