Canon EF 24-70 f/2.8L II ($200)

Harrgnnn - no fair, in Europe Canon only rebates low- to midrange gear, people who the interesting gear like the fast L primes or the 24-70L2 obviously are expected to have the cash to pay full price :-\

Time to take a trip out of Europe!

Well, yes, but only after exploring lonely beaches where I can jump of the ship to circumvent European customs (= afaik paying 15% import tax plus 19% vat). And the US don't have my fingerprints and digital biometric picture yet (even though I truthfully(!) declared on all forms that I don't want to kill the president), that's why I am sad to say I didn't visit for the last years and have to wait for the next Canon EU rebate :-o ... another issue is the US warranty, I wouldn't even know if it's the foreign one is valid w/o the "EU" print on the lens.

I always find it pretty sad to hear of the plight of my fellow photographers shooting in Europe.  Europe's tax laws seem to have gotten pretty ridiculous.  I wonder at times how Europeans afford anything....

The link to BH is dead, so what's the deal on the 600 speedlight if any?  Will this deal migrate to Canon Canada?

Lensprotogo has 6 used ones (sans hood) for $1800 (with shipping). Been considering this rout to test them out. I have had great luck from Lensrentals but they sell out before I can get home!

maybe a good sign for those of us who yearn for a 100-400 IS USM L II...300.00 rebatem down to 1150.00 US Amazon w/2% off.   if you don't yearn for a Mark II,  this is a good deal on the original.

woops, I read that all wrong.... I think the 1459 includes rebate. The Canon Rebate form is only $150.00 which is not a big deal at all, given the price.

The rebate prices were just released today so I expect over the course of this program prices will continue to fall because of competition. You will probably see the best prices in the last two weeks of the program. I am waiting for the 24-70 to drop below 2k before I pull the trigger. I was lucky in Dec and got the 70-200 for less than 1900 new on amazon.

Buy in Switzerland :) (digitec.ch for example)

Although I don't see the rebates outside of USA yet...

It is $50...which, I believe is $10 less than last time for rebates.

:(
