Oh, so you mean to tell me the last second rush to order tonight was unnecessary?  Superb.  ::)

The current set of rebates will probably be extended in December to last until January, but stores may further drop beyond these rebates.

Oh great.  So last week I ordered the original (non-IS) 70-200 2.8 from Adorama at regular price because it was not on the last rebate.  Only the version 2 IS (which I cannot afford) was on the rebate.  Now they have a new rebate that DOES include my lens!  Oh well, from the prices shown on the link, Adorama is only discounting it 36 bucks from what I paid, so not a huge loss.

B&H has it for $1185 though. Which is $150 cheaper. Worth doing a return for, or at least calling Adorama and asking them if they'll help you out.

While Canon and all the other camera companies are duking it out for sales, expect more and bigger discounts into January 2013 at the minimum.

Never mind. B&H went back up to $1299.

Just picked up a 40mm f2.8 for $149.  Don't really need it, but they're just sooooo cute!
