Hi all,

I thought I'd read that the Canon Instant Rebates on lenses, flashes, etc....were going to be extended at least a little into January...

I can't find the links...can anyone confirm this or have a link?


Thanks in advance,

Kelly

Canon has been trying to boost sales for the 2012 fiscal year that ends December 31 2012.  They may well extend or start a new rebate program, but traditionally, the big sales end in December.
 
It all depends on inventory levels and how good of a job they did at getting them down.  I'm pretty sure that we will still see some rebates, but maybe not a big.

It isn't clear if Canon extended the rebate, or if the big sellers just bought up a lot of inventory and extended it on their own.  That happened last year, and prices went to normal over a period of a few weeks as they ran out of discounted product.
We will probably see a announcement tomorrow.

B&H have even more off than advertised ;)

I picked up a 24-70 F/2.8 II for $2049 ($250 off) and they have the new 28mm F/2.8 IS for $609 and the sister 24mm F/2.8 IS for $629.
You need to add the items to the cart to see the real price.
