    Is there such a place? Or do I have to use my credit card and bend over with 17% interest? (not sure what the interest is on my CC because I always pay it off, but you got the idea). I'm thinking about getting a 5D an another lens.

    I doubt you will find a place that will give you zero interest financing on camera gear, could be wrong though.

    Either taking out a loan or putting it on credit card is probably what you would have to do if you dont have the cash.

    I didnt think they carried many DSLRs and lenses though.

    Can you do it online too?

    You're gonna want to upgrade in like 6 months after you get the 5d, so you might as well put a 1d on credit, and be done with it.

    WOW...


    I just looked and Best Buy online has the 5D mk II with a 3 year zero interest plan. The penalities for missing a payment are like 29% interest though.

    I may buy some stuff from them now lol.

    Thanks for the info.

    i dont mind the interest.. just not 18%. I may consider that from Best Buy. I think if you fail to pay it off, all the interest will accumulate all that 18 months like you never paid a dime (same as cash deals).

    OMG they got 3 year no interest on the 24-70 2.8L too. :lol:

    That and the 180mm macro are about the only 2 lenses I would consider buying right now.

    I really want an IS version of the 24-70 2.8 though.

    It is ill conceived to finance a hobby. If you can't pay cash or pay the credit card off in the same billing cycle, I would reconsider and save until you can.
