Black Friday Deal - Canon EOS-5D Mark III $1,899

Canon EOS-5D Mark III full frame camera

The Canon EOS-5D Mark III camera has been my pick as the best value, full frame DSLR camera for the last three years in a row. I have written posts comparing the EOS-5D Mark III to the EOS-5Ds, EOS-7D Mark II and the Nikon D810 for those thinking of upgrading to the 5D3 or buying the other cameras. You can see my recommendation for the best Canon cameras.

Although Canon is expected to announce the EOS-5D Mark IV some time in the first half of 2016, not every photographer needs and wants the latest and greatest gear and the EOS-5D Mark III is a great value for nature, and wedding photographers.

After much deliberation, I have finally replaced my venerable EOS-1Ds Mark III with the EOS-5Ds full frame, 61-point AF, 50 megapixel camera. My 5Ds will be used primarily for nature and travel photography but occasionally for wildlife that don't move too much. The resolution of its impressive sensor,  the ability to crop the image to 1.3x and 1.6x right inside the camera are great advantages for me when it comes to wildlife photography, offsetting its main disadvantage - the slow 5 fps burst rate.

There is a highly-rated merchant on eBay selling the Canon EOS-5D Mark III camera for $1,899 including free shipping. The list price is $2,799. If you are interested in buying one, don't delay too much longer.
