As winter begins to slowly depart here in the States, some of us here at Engadget are anxious to get outside and shoot some spring-like stills. What's that? Oh, you are too? Well, we've collected a handful of discounted camera options this time around that await on the other side of the jump. Per usual, there's a range of prices, so there should be something to suit most budgets.

If there are other cameras, lenses and the like you have your eye on that we haven't included here -- join us and add them to your "Want" list. Every time there's a price cut in the future, you'll get an email alert!

Canon EOS 5D Mark III (body only)

Price: $2,750
Regular Price: $3,500
Engadget Global Score: 88
Buy: Fumfie

While the Mark III was introduced back in 2012, it has become a workhorse for both stills and video. During the course of our review, our only major gripe was the lack of autofocus while capturing HD video. That steep $3,500 price tag is now seeing a $750 discount though, so the cost of admission has come down significantly.

Pentax K-3 (body only)

Price: $950
Regular Price: $1,300
Engadget Global Score: 90
Buy: Fumfie

The Pentax K-3 just went on sale in late 2013 and the reviews are starting to roll in. The verdict? So far, the DSLR as tallied a 90 Engadget Global Score -- not too shabby. Despite snappy performance and solid output in the stills department, early adopters have noted a dip in video quality. While the K-3 hasn't been on the market for a full 90 days, our Price Drop tool shows that $950 is the lowest we've seen so far.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-G5 (body only)

Price: $330
Regular Price: $600
Engadget Global Score: 83
Buy: Newegg

Panasonic's Lumix DMC-G5, despite being a body-only purchase, allows beginners to enter into ILC shooting with a fairly modest investment. If you're unsure about this model though, you can browse all of the company's offerings and compare them for yourself in our product database. Willing to hold out to save a few more bucks? The 90-day Price History shows that the current price tag is marked $30 above the lowest from back in December.

Olympus Stylus Tough TG-2 iHS

Price: $309
Regular Price: $399
Engadget Global Score: 86
Buy: 42nd Street Photo

Spring is just around the corner, so why not consider a rugged point-and-shoot for logging those upcoming outdoor expeditions? The TG-2 offers up respectable performance in a shockproof and waterproof shell for durable performance on the trail. Oh yeah, the current $309 price is on par with the 90-day low, too.
