Hot: 6D Mark II $1699, 80D $789, with Free Printer AR (with Caveat)




Authorized Canon USA dealer Focus Camera has a number of hot bundles that include a free PIXMA PRO-100 printer, after the Canon USA $350 mail-in rebate. These are some very hot prices, especially as the printer ink and head alone can resale for $90-$100 — the best printer bundles we’ve seen in quite some time. Please note some caveats about the dealer Focus Camera at the bottom of this post.

Caveat: First and foremost Focus Camera is an authorized Canon USA dealer, so that puts them solidly one notch above grey market dealers. However, their ratings read like a mixed bag — with both smooth positive reviews as well as reviews describing problematic transactions: wrong items shipped, and long delays for cancellation or refunds. They’re certainly not a scam, they’re likely just a disorganized dealer with below-average customer service and logistics.

The prices are too good to turn down, however, with savings $200-300 off even our fantastic street prices when you consider both the upfront savings plus the free printer. Our recommendation is to proceed cautiously and be ready to exercise credit card chargeback or other recourse at the first sign of things going awry. If you’re not comfortable or don’t want the hassle, keep on waiting and perhaps another dealer will match this deal eventually.

(Friendly reminder, you can only do one printer rebate during the Oct 1 – Dec 31 period, per household. Make it count!)

      Yes, they have a 7D Mark II + 18-135 STM + PIXMA PRO-100 for $1599 AR. An okay deal, but not a great deal.

    Per the mail-in-rebate claim form.

    “Offer does not apply to purchases of refurbished or used products nor for eligible products packaged together and sold for one price”

    It seems the 6d mk 2 and printer are packaged together and sold for one price.

    Will the rebate still apply?

    Thanks.

      Yes.

      “eligible products packaged together and sold for one price” — typically refers to kit lenses (like the 24-105 II) in a camera box. e.g. you can’t use the 24-105 II to claim a double-lens MIR.

        It also mentions:

        “Your envelope containing this claim form, the section of the printer box bearing the original “Proof of Purchase” 12-digit UPC bar code cut from the box(es) of the eligible printer(s) and, if applicable, camera(s), leaving a hole in the box(es) (we must receive “Proof of Purchase” with cardboard intact; do not peel off “Proof of Purchase” sticker”.

        If camera, printer and paper are shipped in one box, then I would not have 2 different cardboard box cutouts to ship back.

        Has anyone encountered issues with this?

        Thanks again for replying – you guys are much appreciated : )

          The two Canon products are in separate boxes. You will get a PIXMA PRO-100 box, and you will get a camera box. You’ll cut the UPC from each.

          “eligible products packaged together and sold for one price” — typically refers to kit lenses (like the 24-105 II) in a camera box. e.g. you can’t use the 24-105 II to claim a double-lens MIR.

    Haha, the price for the 6D II is hilarious considering it’s a flop.

    1. November 11, 2017 at 10:21 pm

      They’ll be around a $1K in no time. Still haven’t seen the 5DIII under $2K, a real full frame beauty.

    2. November 11, 2017 at 11:24 pm

      True

    I received my canon 6d mark 2 and printer on Wednesday but havent got the receipt along with it. Seller said I will get the receipt in separate mail. So far I havent received it. They said I need to have hard copy to get the mail in rebate. Has any experienced this?
