Looks like Fry's is an In Store Only price.
Sorry, it was available for shipping when I first posted it.

Fry's and Adorama are both reputable.

Since it's a body only deal, why not pick up the "nifty fifty" for $90 more.

Adorama has Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Autofocus Lens (U.S warranty) for $90 with free shipping. *Must add to cart to see discounted price*.


Prices are good for 48 hours or while quantities last.  I picked up the EF-S 17-55.

Canon 5D mark II DSLR camera body only
apply 20% off code BTEJHHH22 : -$359.8
Total: $1439.2

Canon EOS T4i (body only) for  $559.99 shipped, same code

Canon 17-55mm f/2.8 IS for $847.20 shipped, same code

Canon 70-200mm f/4.0 L IS for $920 shipped, same code

I'm amazed someone actually bothered to read the terms & conditions.  Glad people are looking out for the rest of us.  ;)

Canon General / Re: Canon's MAP Pricing Goes Into Full Effect Today

What happened to the enforcement of MAP?  Seems like there have been Canon lens sales everywhere you look the past few days.  Our retailers allowed to skirt the rules by forcing you to add it to your cart before showing you the price.  NOT that I'm complaining.

I went with the EF 300 f/4L.  Thanks for all the advice and well thought out comments.  This is a great community.

Oh I see B&H dropped their price on the EF300 mm f/4 L from 1,349 to 1,181.99 today.  I think someone might be trying to tell me something.

Truthfully, I just played around with my sister's 100-400 for a few days.  It would probably grow on me over time.

I'm pretty good at sneaking up on animals and I'm planning to use the lens primarily on my 7D, so the 300 prime would give me 480 w/o extender and 672 w/ a 1.4.  Light is sometimes a factor when I'm in the woods.  I don't recall what aperature is available on the 100-400 at 300mm.

I'm looking for a new lens that will give me a bit more reach than my EF 70-200mm f/4 L for photographing wildlife (i.e. ducks, squirrels, etc.).  I've excluded the 100-400mm L as I don't like the push pull and the 400 mm f5.6 due to it's lack of IS.  I can't afford any of the faster L telephotos or those with longer reach.

EF 300mm f/4L advantages
* faster lens 4.0 vs 5.6 at 300mm
* compatible w/ Canon extenders
* slightly better sharpness at 300 mm?

EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L advantages
* $80 cheaper $1269 vs $1349
* more versatile (range of focal lengths)
* more compact (travel friendly)

Did I miss anything.  I appreciate any and all opinions/comments.  Thanks!

There were some nice fall colors in Wisconsin this year.  I wish my landscape photos turned out better, I never know where to focus.
