Want The Canon EOS M Now And For Less? DigitalRev May Be Your Best Choice (if you live in Europe)

Want The Canon EOS M Now And For Less? DigitalRev May Be Your Best Choice

While neither Amazon (maybe by third party sellers) nor Adorama or B&H have Canon’s supersmall mirrorless camera, the EOS M, in stock and ready to ship, Hong Kong based DigitalRev’s online shop has various EOS M kits and bundles on sale and all are ready to ship. But there is more than just a well organized shop having the EOS M in stock. DigitalRev’s prices are absolutely competitive: around €200 less than what you would pay if shopping in other, EU-based online shops. And shipping is free. Some examples.

  • The Canon EOS M with EF-M 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM is sold to customers in Germany for €644.80, to Italy for €644.80 and to the UK for £464 (click here)
  • The Canon EOS M with the EF-M 22mm f/2 and the EF/EF-S adapter is sold to customers in Germany for €683.65, to Italy for €700.60 and to the UK for £509 (click here)
  • The Canon EOS M with EF-M 18-55mm and EF-M 22mm and Speedlite 90EX is sold to Germany for €785, to Italy for €805, to the UK for £ 579 (click here)

I chose three EU countries for the example, but prices should be more or less the same for other EU countries.

How does this work? I was so curious that I decided to contact DigitalRev and to ask them. DigitalRev assured me that for almost all European countries the listed prices are comprehensive of all import taxes and customs handling fees. When checking out you will see (either hoovering over the price with the mouse, or below the price) a sentence like “No Import Tax/Duty to Pay: Any import tax/duty charged will be billed directly us“. If you get this on check-out, then everything is fine and the listed price is all you will have to pay (e.g. €644 for the first kit in the list above).

Let me recap this: For those countries that are offered with “No Import Tax/Duty to Pay” the prices are comprehensive of all custom taxes and import handling fees: DigitalRev assured me by email that if for any chance a customer is charged for additional taxes upon receiving the ordered items, she or he may contact DigitalRev and ask for reimbursement. So, you shouldn’t run into any nasty surprises when the ordered items enter your country. I have been told that this is applicable to almost all European countries. Things may be different for the US (due to different tax laws among states), no problems of any kind if you are in Asia. However, and wherever you are located, to be sure you just have to verify it before checking out. Look out for “No Import Tax/Duty to Pay” and you should be fine. I know from customers in the UK that everything worked as expected for them. There are many different EOS M bundles on sale at DigitalRev, check it out here.

Supercharged Canon EOS 5D Mark III Bundle For $3800

Supercharged Canon EOS 5D Mark III Bundle For $3800

Top rated ebay seller getitdigital has a supercharged Canon EOS 5D Mark III kit for $3,800 (click here to check the deal). The picture above gives an idea of the items in the bundle (the last two items come with every 5D3, do not count them). None of the lens is “L” grade (three lenses are Canon, one is image stabilized), yet a good and powerful starter kit that includes anything you need to leverage your photographic creativity. For a price that's just $300 more than the price the 5D Mark III had when it was released.

 

It’s Getting Crazier: Canon EOS 5D Mark III Price Tumbles Down Even More (now $2994)

Canon EOS 5D Mark III Price Tumbles Down Even More

If things are going on that way I will have to post a EOS 5D Mark III deal every day. The price of the Canon EOS 5D Mark III dropped again (it dropped just five days ago). Both Amazon and B&H are now selling the body only option for $2994 (Amazon | B&H). Last week it was around $200 more than today! These are not eBay sales, but offerings coming from the big, official sellers. Both Amazon and B&H show exactly the same price, I guess these price drops are suggested directly from Canon. However, while Amazon doesn’t refer to any sale or rebates program, B&H says that it is an offer that ends on November 24th. Don’t know what is going on.

And that’s not all. All the EOS 5D Mark III kits have also gone down with the price. Now the kit with the EF 24-105mm f/4L IS lens is yours for $3749 (Amazon | B&H). That’s just $250 more than the price the 5D Mark III body only option was sold when the camera was introduced (6 months ago). Crazy!

What about the Canon EOS 5D Mark II? The price is still down to $1,699 for the body only (Amazon | B&H) and $2,499 for the kit with the EF 24-105mm f/4L IS lens (Amazon | B&H). I don’t really expect other significant price drops for the EOS 5D Mark II in the near future. But then, who knows.

These are all “official” prices, and it could be hard to find better options even on eBay. I wonder how much the EOS 5D Mark III will cost in April 2013, when Canon will release an important firmware update for it.

Canon EOS 5D Mark III and Mark II deals showed up frequently in the last time, mainly on eBay. Now a big, official seller, that’s B&H, also dropped the stock prices for both DSLRs.

The Canon EOS 5D Mark III now has a price tag of $3199 (click here), the Canon EOS 5D Mark II dropped to $1699 (click here). Both offers are for the body only. If buying gear on eBay isn’t your thing, then these may be the right deals for you. Shipping for free in the US.
