I bought my 6d 24-105L kit from B&H for 2,329 last week, thank God!  With the "instant rebate", the price is actually higher, no?
BLAST!
I just checked B&H website and it's only 2199 now.  I gotta send it back and buy it again? #$**!!!

Just ask B&H for an adjustment or just to redo the paperwork.

They would much prefer skiping a return.

They've upped the price of the 24-105 kit on amazon to 2398, but it doesn't show the $200 instant.  It only shows the $300 on the 70-300.

...I sure hope so.  While it is most certainly preferable, it is also "old-school" (like me, regrettably, sigh...) and I am learning not to be so surprised at how the still-emerging "new-school" works...

$2398 on B & H for the 6D + 24-105 + 70-300.  So the question is, is the 70-300 worth $200?  I have plans to buy either the 70-200 F4 IS or 70-300L.  I might just do this deal and re-sell the 70-300 non L.  It'll depend on how Amazon handles it, since I bought the kit for $2329 a week ago.

I've had the 70-300 IS for several years now and it has really good iq on the 50- and 7D for a non-L lens.  I'll have to try it on the 6D and post...

As canon rebates often travel around the world, does anybody know if/when this kind of rebate will come to europe/germany?  Dont want to buy an extensive lense now and have to see a big rebate in near future ;)

OK...so the Canon rebate advertisement posted for this discussion lists the 135mm f/2L for $989 with rebate, so why:
Does B&H Photo not even list the lens on their website???
Amazon lists the lens @  $1131.00 ???
..and pretty much everyone but J&R who has the lens lists it for over $1100 ???
That price is higher than Canon's pre-rebate price.
kind of odd, no?
I must be missing something here. HELP! LOL!

Do we ever get rebates here in Australia??

We get ripped off with so much software and hardware, it would be nice to get a discount for a change.

I saw three hundred off the lens,  but not the additional two hundred off the body and lens kit...  sucks.
Upgrade  path.->means the former was sold for the latter.

This is my question too. Is that 70-300 worth picking up for $200? For all 3, the camera plus the 2 lenses, it's the same price that the camera +24-105 was. So almost like getting a free lens. ? But I'd rather just save the $200 if it's a crappy lens and/or one I can't resell for more than I got it for. Any thoughts?

Well The 70-300 isn't an L lens...(I guess you need to read some reviews to get an idea of the quality...I'm not familiar with the lens....but you will be using it on a current FF camera..so whatever is not good will really show), but hey it's selling at B&H for well over $400 so you could certainly get more than your money back by selling it if you do not like it!...

Yeah - this is maddening. I feel like I'm on E-bay trying to time an auction bid. Guess I keep on waiting for this mess to settle down. So much for the weak yen argument.
Canon 6D & 50D, nice set of lenses

It is currently $2199 from Best Buy. If that is the camera/lens you were after....
