@ polarhannes (first page...)
yes, the cashback-action in germany could come true in may, cause in UK it is almost active since 07.03.13 until 31.05.2013. The cashback for the new 24-70 II is really 300,-€  (terms and conditions here: http://www.canon.co.uk/Images/A4UKIRE_terms%26conditions_tcm14-1036724.pdf )
And the cashback for the 5d3 is 200,-€.

I thought about buying a 5d3 in April, but with your information I will wait until may - perhaps I`ll be a lucky guy and get the gear a little bit cheaper than now.  ;D

We will see

thank you for the information  :)

greetings from germany

expected and unavoidable. the 5DmkIII needs to keep up with the downward pressure due to stronger yen and competition. compared to the 5DmkII, it's successor has seen far less uptake.

So does anyone know if dealers honor the actual rebates or is this only from Canon direct? The 6D + 24-105 lens package has a $200 rebate bringing it down to $2399. But it's already $2399 from B+H and Amazon. Will they still give the $200 off? Just not super clear how it works. And this is the camera that I have been thinking of upgrading to.

Thanks.

200 euro cashback on the 5D MK3 and the price just got up 100 euro the last 2 days... great.

and amazon marketplace is excluded.  ???

why?
most marketplace sellers have their own internet shop too.
what difference this makes?

You guys are lucky, just have to wait.

Rebates don't happen here, I bet most stores don't even know what rebate means, SE Asian markets..  :P

Singapore has the best deals on Canon Lenses. I could've got a 70-200 II for under 1900

No, you won't get the rebate on top of the current discount prices.  They'll raise the price then apply the rebate, maybe prices will be $50 less than current on higher end items, maybe no change after the rebate.

I guess we can expect to see usual rebate-offsetting price increases at B&H later today...  ::)

does any one have the historical rebates.  I am interested to see how the values changes over time (as well as which lens and cameras are included)


For individual lenses you can check out canon price watch, the graph at the bottom of the page shows the historic rebates.

e.g. the 70-200 II has been on rebate for the last year pretty much

+1. Adorama now has both 24-70 II and 70-200 II less than $2K. Go to the-digital-picture.com for the coupon code.

I thought 5D Mark III was to be deeply discounted? Already in Canada the price for body only is $3K from a dealer. Ebay deals starting to look better.

Actually same as the 24-70mm. Already purchased it cheaper in Canada.

Wow those are some terrible prices from the Sammy's ad. $3899 for 5D MkIII with kit is laughable considering it was selling for $3449 everywhere in March. Similarly, $2199 for the 70-200 when Adorama is selling for $1949 this very moment. Hopefully B&H will have some prices tomorrow that resemble something like actual rebates.

What about on the multi-lens deals?  The reason I ask is that I bought a 6D + 24-105 kit and I'm still within the return period.  Looking at these, I could have gotten the 70-300mm IS USM basically for free.  It would suck to have to return the kit to get the free 70-300, but I can't ignore it...

in fairness,  the mkii was a big-time improvement over the 5dc.   the mkiii fixes all if not most of the problems with the mkii,  but in regards to studio and portraiture,  the mkii  will still be more than sufficient.   wedding and sport photography is really where the market  is.   I'm know people will disagree,  but the mkii  was a formidable camera.

in the past,  dealers were required to return their pricing to minimum advertised price to be eligible for the rebate to be applicable,  so you did see the price go up by a hundred and then drop by two hundred.   but last year canon forced authorized retailers to go to minimum advertised pricing which I don't think lasted long,  but I could be wrong about that.

I forget if it was adorama or b&h,  but they had their sale pricing at midnight and then the rebate kicked in so you could double dip.   and then the following day their price went to minimum advertised price.  so look around for what you want and maybe you'll find a good deal.
