Shooting the Sawtooth's and Sun Valley, drinking schooners at Grumpy's and hoping I brought enough CF cards!

For those who shop online, its Cyber Monday when the best deals happen.  Last year, some of the best deals on photography equipment happened the day after Cyber Monday.
You can also play chicken and see if prices will drop further.  They did last year, Canon really dropped prices as December wore on.
 <snip>

Anyone think Canon will extend the current instant rebate on their lenses through December...? Drop the prices any further...?<P>
I'm wanting to pull the trigger on the 70-200 f/2.8....but waffling if I should do it before EOM here in NOV, or wait and see a bit more.....

She has one of those "last few weeks" memories.

There certainly was a lot rebates extended last year, some with different items and different amounts.   It probably has more to do whether Canon meets their sales goals with the current rebate.  My guess is rebates will be extended.   

I just ordered the 70-200 2.8 myself, I think the current rebate is as low as it will get for sometime.

I think so Brain, but if Friday is black and Tuesday is fat, what would that make Sunday?  NARF!

Make a run down to Mono Lake and shoot the tufa towers or maybe Bodie. Haven't been to either all year, they're just 90 minutes south of me.....

These dated comic references….hmmm……perhaps something ala Phineas and Furb

"Aren't you a bit too young to be shooting with a 1Dx and a 400 2.8 IS?"

"Why yes, yes we are."

Nagging Wife: What, did you expect the Canon 200-400 f/4 with 1.4x extender to just fall out of the sky?

UPDATE! I got the BEST Black Friday deal in all of Western CT: I woke up, looked at the clock, then the temperature outside and went back to sleep.   ;D

It's supposed to be in the mid/upper 50's in here New England today, and you're complaining about the temperature?   :P

1. Staying home and making coffee while my spouse runs around town grabbing good deals.
2.  Marking off the calendar for when my 135mm f/2 L rental gets here
3. Scratching myself
4. Preparing some images for print for a few clients and family
5. Sending this link to somebody who has my name for Christmas
6. Getting ready for the big game tomorrow.


In landscape photography, when you shoot is more important than where.

Gear: Canon 5DmkII, 17-40mm f/4 L, 50mm f/1.4, 70-200mm f/4.
