But if you’re in the market for solid DSLR options, there are several deals out there. We found three decent deals that could be worth the money in the Canon 5D Mark III, Nikon D810, and Panasonic GH4.Canon 5D Mark III RefurbishedImage: Canon 5D Mark III via ISO50The Canon 5D Mark III is a workhorse. Used by many documentary and big-budget cinematographers, the 5D Mark III is a great professional camera. The deals below are through standard retailers, as well as from Canon Direct, which offers a refurbished model.B&H Photo $300 OffAdorama $550 OffAmazon $300 OffCanon Direct Refurbished $1,899.00Nikon D810Image: Nikon D810 via Today OnlineThe Nikon D810 is a solid CMOS sensor DSLR and pretty comparable to the Canon 5D Mark III, though its price tag (even at a discount) is going to be a little more than the 5D MKIII.
