Canon EOS 60D and Canon EOS 7D bodies and kits are in stock at this moment, starting at $679.99 and $1,155.15 respectively. Canon EOS Rebel T3 kits are $373.99.
 
As I said on Sunday, the Canon refurbished gear at the Canon Store is a good deal at regular prices. At 15% off, these deals are very hot.
 
Canon refurbished gear should be in like-new condition.
