One of missing pieces in my puzzle.
Since I'm no hurry for UWA, willing to wait for X-mas rebate.
I was going to wait for a rebate too, but then pre-ordered one when the Canon site glitched and was selling at a discount.
What was the discount rate?
$125 off 1200 for the lens, and because it was through Canon, they threw in a "100 Million EF Lens Gift Set" valued at 50 for free.
$125 off is better paying full price. Wonder what inside "100 Million EF Lens Gift Set"?
