Canon Rebates

Saw this on Gizmodo and thought I would share after looking through the "What are you shooting with" thread. Looks like some good deals for lenses and DSLRs.

Re: Canon Rebates

Perfect timing, too, since i plan on buying my 5D this week--i.e. after the 18th! And now I can get a 430ex at the same time!

By the way I'll kill someone if they announce this right after the rebated are over... http://gizmodo.com/gadgets/unconfirm...yle-275882.php

Re: Canon Rebates

It's weird...Amazon has dropped the price of the 5D to $2599.99, but no mention of the instant rebate.

In related news, Amazon also has the 1D mk II for $2750. Which is not bad. But is it worth it for a camera that's now 2 generations old?

Alec, the 5d (body only) is only $1900 over at BH Photo. I'll probably be grabbing a 40D from them.

I'm getting it with the "kit" lens--24-105 f/4L. And I'd rather go Amazon anyway, 'cause I get the 3.99 overnight shipping

Re: Canon Rebates

So I see what Amazon did...knowing the $300 instant rebate was coming, they jacked up their price so that the price after discount would only be half what it was supposed to be.

Whatever, it's still a better price. But that's hella sneaky.
