This pathetic. Any good deals are for US only. Why can't you ship across the border.
How does the 5D Mark III hold up against some of the new mirrorless cameras, like Sony A7II?

Kris2014 referred to A7ii, not A7Rii. The former is significantly cheaper than the latter. If I could swing it I'd pick Rii over ii any day ;-)

If you are not after hardware performance and additional features a7ii will suffice. 7r2 is indeed interest camera but high pixel count is not always handy. The difference in price can be spent on a good lens.
So some people might be wondering what a grey marketed item is.. and to put it simple.. your buying it "right out the factory" from china or taiwan (where ever it was made).. its something you don't get a warranty on which some people might be fine with.. you probably have to pay for shipping and you might have to pay import duties for importing something from out side of the us.. so by the time you pay all that it might not be worth it.

btw dont go completely off what i just said do a little more research if you plan on buying something grey market especially if its expensive.

idk just read something about this somewhere about import duties on grey market items. (feel free to correct any wrong here)
Seems kinda odd that this camera would still be on the market today. Isn't it now two generations behind?

"The two cameras [5Ds and R] will exist alongside the EOD 5D Mark III, acting as dedicated high resolution cameras primarily intended for studio, landscape and wedding shoots, rather than the all-round capability offered by the existing model. The Mark III still trumps the S and S R in terms of maximum ISO and continuous shooting speed." Not really, the 5Ds and R have a 50 megapickle sensor. It's not really a mid-generation refresh but rather a branch of the 5D family.
I have the 5Ds R, which is the 5Ds with a low pass filter cancellation. They're both 50.6MP cameras, but are identical to the 5DmkIII in all other respects. The difference between the III and IV are basically that the new one has an even more elaborate AF system, 30MP vs 22MP as well as 4k video (I have yet to use this for clients), wifi and screen. The III and IV are as much as most people could want - as long as you're a Canon person and are invested in that system. Currently this is about $490 less than normal asking, but in the same ballpark as a Canon refurb. Refurbs are for all intents and purposes new or nearly new.

When I was buying I went with the slightly older version as I found I almost never use wifi with the cameras I have with it, and the AF is all I need along with burst speed. Just check the specs on the models - the-digital-picture.com is an excellent resource for Canon gear and he breaks things down well between models with lots of comparisons. You can't go wrong with any of them. I tend to buy in the middle end of a production curve for best prices and zero bugs!

BTW, Canon will grudgingly honor a gray market camera in the US, but it's not as easy. Do be aware of this. Check the Canon website for refurbs - that's the only way I'll go now!
This would be a good price if it wasn't grey market. As far as grey market prices goes its about the same as everyone else.

Correct. Deal breaker for me and those who want a US warranty.

Yeah :( On Ebay the Grey Market models are now at 1799$. So this makes the MD deal not a good one.
And the deal is?

I take that back. Just realized it's a grey market item being offered.
Apparently you have never bought a high end camera otherwise you' know that an advertised Canon 5D III might not be the Canon 5D III YOU thought you get, depending on the retailer and hidden conditions
