just buy this on ebay used it will be way cheaper 1000-2000
I would wait until Cannon's EOS R is released this week. All there DSLR's will be dropping $500-$1000 by years end. The EOS R looks like a good competitor against Sony and it will accept the Canon glass with an adpator. Around $2000 is a reasonable price for there first mirrorless. Nikon seems to have missed there chance at their first attempt in the mirrorless market.

You know Nikon is coming out with the Z6 and Z7 right? Not sure how they've missed their chance.
Normal price http://bhpho.to/2bqeC6K about $3100. So this is somewhat of a deal. I can get it cheaper at a grey market Japanese or Hong Kong site. But then domestic warranty? The wording on this drop claims one year Canon USA warranty, so it appears it must be through a valid Canon retailer.

Correct, it is coming from an authorized Canon distributor.
I WOULD NOT BUY FROM HERE...IT IS GRAY MARKET AND YOU WILL BE STUCK. IT MIGHT EVEN BE A FAKE!!

I'd be more willing to believe that they are legit Canon DSLRs that did not make it past QC. I recall a while back there were a bunch of cheap computer components that were 'sourced' from the dumpsters outside of QC departments.
Were either of them bought from this website?
We have sold thousands of cameras and never encountered a fake one before.
CPW currently matches the price and ships from an authorized reseller. Direct quote:
"The street price is $2999.99 on this item brand new from an authorized dealer with full Canon USA Warranty and free shipping."
Two months ago their price was 2799.99, and more recently they have offered free pack-ins "valued over $500 at retail" with 5D Mark IVs at the $3k price. Ultimately, I have to agree that this isn't a great deal ... it just matches what CPW have been offering for awhile now, which again is $200 higher than the lowest prices seen with this body so far this year (assuming full warranty and free shipping).
If you can wait, keep an eye on CPW and snipe deals. If you want to buy it now, buy via CPW and get a bulletproof USA warranty and free pack-ins. If you want to support Massdrop, buy via Massdrop.
EDIT: Having read the listing, Massdrop makes NO CLAIMS as to US Warranty coverage on this drop. "USA spec" likely only means that the battery charger fits US AC outlets. If you want warranty coverage, you already know how to get it if you've read this far.
EDIT2: Just to be as complete as possible, you can get this gray market for around $2500 and refurbed from Canon for around $2200 if you wait for deals. Just more options for those strapped for cash.

Thank you very much. Appreciate it
From my understanding, it is still considered grey market even if the warranty card says US and Canada if it is bought from unauthorized dealer. MD should not claim it has US warranty unless it will ship directly from the authorized vendor with receipt from them. Just my 2 cents
EDIT: Massdrop has resolved this, at least in my opinion. They will give you a receipt from the authorized dealer if and when you require warranty service, and if anything goes wrong they will reimburse you for any repairs. You can see the post below for Duncan from Massdrop's response to my questions. https://www.massdrop.com/buy/nikon-d850-dslr-camera/talk/2017025?utm_source=linkshare&referer=T3XNMA
This is a bad deal. First off, you will not be getting a USA warranty, as others have stated. Second off, this discount is miniscule. It's currently selling for $3299 on Amazon, with the warranty. Also, the D850 from Nikon is a much newer and better camera, and is the same price. You'll have to wait to get one, but this is just a minor discount on an outdated camera.
jeremy205100
I share your preference for the D850--I have one!
jeremy205100
D850 is no comparison. Most people considering this camera body most likely already have a few Canon lenses, and are otherwise invested in the Canon ecosystem. They would have to be willing to dump their lenses on the used market and buy new glass if they were to jump to the D850. If you prefer Nikon over Canon, that is fine. I think Camera fanboy flamewars are silly. All that matters in the end is the image you capture, not how much you spent and with which brand.
USA Spec means nothing really in terms of warranty.. You don't get an authorized dealer receipt and Canon will not recognize it for warranty purposes without one. As stated by dradler, this will be considered Gray Market by Canon and you will be charged for any service should you need it. If you're willing to take that chance, it's a good price, but Canon will run these on special from Authorized dealers from time to time. Canon also offers refurbished models which come with a full warranty (when in stock).
JaySCT
So true--as if there was a "French Spec" and an "Icelandic Spec", etc...!
Grey market. Watch out usually not the same warranty as USA
dradler
Means no Black and White shots--only grey and white!
During the holidays B&H had a great bundle for approx. $2,800 which included the body, genuine Canon grip, a 64gb SD card and a backpack. If Massdrop can match or get close to something like that or a substantial discount on the body only, it would be outstanding.
I want to take it out for a test run. And some shoots to know how it takes the harsh condition of Nepal
If you’re going to spend anywhere near $3,000 on a professional full frame camera, you’d have to be crazy not to look long and hard at the new Sony a7rIII. Unless you plan on dying as a Canon shooter, that camera is absolutely the best way forward.

@RayF Hahaha! I don't know what blasphemy you saw there. But do note there are always trade offs otherwise everyone would have got a 1DXII. Budget, size/weight, image quality, dual card slots etc. etc. lot of things to consider; some things matter more to you than others. Lots of people are getting stellar landscape shots out of their Fuji X system.
Nikon came out with their Z system and there are rumors that Canon is coming out with their own R mount mirrorless. So more options for us consumers.
agni
Mirrorless cameras be damned! They are cheaper to produce and represent no savings/value to the consumer, only to the manufacturer (Fake cameras--sad!).
That said, you'd be a fool to buy a first generation of any "new" camera. And of course you are also wrong about the "everyone would have" camera--that would be a D850, already tried and proven to have the better image quality, not a 1DXII. Remember: real men, use real cameras!

Not sure how legit it is. During the Thanksgiving shopping madness I noticed few ebay vendors dropped 5DMkIV prices to 2,499$. Not sure whether they were grey market units.
psiclone
The 5d is their flagship...

This drop is for a 5D Mark IV, not a 6D.
This is a joke right? Adorama has this for $2850 with the printer after rebate. That's $150 less from a dealer that we are actually allowed to talk to and know is a legit US authorized retailer.

For clarity, you waited until that deal ended to reply. Need me to find another one? It isn’t hard. The fact is, that the community has been begging for a group buy deal on this camera, but this isn’t it. Especially around the holidays, Massdrop has to do better than Adorama and B&H for camera deals if you want to claim a deal...

"Read 'em and weep" Jaysun!
Hi, right now this is on zulily for 200$ less
Any official update on when this is shipping?The estimated date said 11/20 and now it's the 23rd....
Does this ship worldwide??? If so, how much is the shipping? It doesn't say!

Alot of drops in the past year or so aren't shipping worldwide. This kinda sucks, seems the better drops are only USA. Whatever.
Eorlingas
The drops are most applicable to Americans. We Europeans get stung for import duty upon receipt, and usually pay shipping costs, so the cost increases to very near ordinary retail price.
Attention Massdrop Members!
This exact camera MFR # 1483C002 with the exact same warranty from Canon is listed for $300 more anywhere else.
Careful of these camera purchases on Massdrop. Most of this still if grey-market from outside the US. The lens I just got was non-US stock and no US warranty. The reason for the low price.

And that is the problem. Imaging you drop 4K on a camera and then MD goes out of business. The vendor may show you the finger bc they dealt w/MD (if you ever get that name) and now have a convenient way to avoid responsibility. All of the sudden you stand there w/your pants down.
Exactly right that I want assurances. This is not mickey mouse business, but a serious transaction. I don't like to be told "there is warranty" if it explicitly violates policies set by Canon. If Massdrop has an arrangement w/Canon or a buyer I should have access to the information to make an informed decision. Hence, I did not buy. More interestingly and possibly more importantly, Jay failed to respond to my last inquiry despite tracking it. Not a good sign.
I am have grown very curious about MD electronics. I bought a few of them early on and all of them, I mean ALL OF THEM, had defects early on and then crapped out. I am starting to seriously wonder if MD is a dumping ground for 2nd hand electronics (such as returns) that vendors (such in this case) can dump easily while reducing loss. I asked about that as well and MD did not respond to that either.
This is why I pay full price for gear at BH. My Sony a6300 had problems but because BH is a authorized seller for gear, Sony accepted it and fixed my problems, no questions asked. I haven't purchased any camera gear but it's posts that these that make me hesitate. While this is Canon and not Sony, the same logic applies.
so long time for shipped status :)
anyone have shipped status?

last update shipping to 09/10/2017
you have shipped?
I was in the marked for the D5 Mark IV because the other full sensor Canon camera (D6) did not quite cut it. However, Canon JUST came out w/the D6 Mark II, which is getting fairly close to the D5 Mark IV for about a grand less. I figure I get the D6 Mark II, learn how to utilize it effectively and by the time I got this mastered, the D5 Mark V will have come out and I upgrade then. Otherwise, the D5 Mark IV is a great deal especially for this price (although I don't trust Massdrop on their electronics (I have had too many problems buying electronics from MD) and would spend the extra $200 and buy from B&H instead.

We get shafted in Canada: Price: $4,499.00 CAD Save: $200.00 CAD Sale Price: $4,299.00 CAD
On MD, it works out to $3730 CAD (before shipping to Canada). Anyone know of any good reshippers?

I don't get you Canadians--just come to the states and buy a damn camera--it's not like we're a foreign country or something!
I got mine for $2699 two weeks ago from ebay.

Grey market doesn't sale refurbished as new in ebay, also you have ebay protection (if you buy from them ofcourse) and 30 days for return if you don't like the camera. Now is even cheaper in ebay!
Terco
For sure I'd buy from eBay if it were a very good deal. Having said that I just picked up a D7200 body from a Henry's at a 1000 bucks Canadian with Nikon warranty.
This isnt much better of a deal than a regular camera house with Canon Rebate of $200. Still a great camera and probably the lowest price for now.
Bradwardo
Some perspective Regular camera house: $3499.00 Canon Rebate: $200.00 -------------------------------------------- Total: $3299.00
Thanks for sharing @Bradwardo
