Canon Lens Price Drops
« on: May 30, 2011, 06:02:58 PM »
Photo Rumors is reporting modest price drops (most are $50 or less) on a number of Canon lenses. Not enough to make me rush out and buy anything, but I'll take any price drop as a good thing. Especially since the trend has been in the other direction.

Use www.canonpricewatch.com and wait for prices to go back to the level they were at prior to the earthquake/tsunami.

For example, the 85/1.8 is about $50 down from its peak but still at least $20 more than it should be:
