having the rebates only run for 2 weeks is sort of odd for canon?  arent these rebates usually for a month+?
so we can expect the 70d on april 28th?!?!?!?!?!

$499 for the 600 flash and $869 for the 100m l macro are darn good prices!
5d3 --- 60d --- 50mm-f1.8 --- 18-135mm --- 60mm macro --- 70-300is --- 100-400l --- 24-105l --- 17-40l --- 430ex ii

$499 for the 600 flash

Indeed. I bought one a couple weeks ago for $550 (my second one), might have to pick up another...

This morning B+H had the 6d w/24-105 for $2199, including rebate. This afternoon it is back up to $2399, including rebate....  ::)

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.

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

Thanks for the info, but that would mean $150 in local tax so I'm sitting pat (grumpily)

Aren't the "rebates" really just the actual prices so when they say "rebate" you feel all warm and fuzzy inside (and you can justify the purchase) that you are saving $200 on that 3k purchase?
I expect prices to go up.  They have in the past.  Canon requires sellers to give the rebate based on MSRP, which may well be a higher price than the item was selling for before the rebate started.

Well this is fracking stupid.  These rebates caused the 6D kit price on Amazon to actually go UP by $70 in the U.S!

The Best Buy website is at $2199, but as mentioned, they do charge tax, even for online only sales.  That's still $2330, which is cheaper than most other places now that the rebate has raised prices.

Sweet!  I almost bought the 24-70 2.8L II for $2049 during the last rebate period. Glad I waited.  Just snagged it for $1929 using the Adorama Coupon Code.  I actually prefer to do business with B&H (a couple of unsatisfactory customer service incidents at Adorama), but for that savings, I'd do business with the devil himself :)

$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.

You can probably get between $300-$350 on CraigsList for the non-L 70-300 IS depending on your local market. You might get a bit more on FM or eBay if it's new and unopened. There are a lot of them for sale but if you're patient it'll get you at least $300. I can't speak to how good of a lens it is since I've never actually taken one out of the box. I'll stick with a 70-200 + extenders.

"You can also expect big savings on the EOS 5D Mark III."

I guess my definition of "big" is distorted... 0.5% off - woohoo!  :(

I was looking at getting 2 Canon bodies. A 60D and a 5D Mark III. I know the Mark III on most of the websites were $2900 and change in March. Start a new rebate and jack up the prices?
Is Canon trying to slow their sales? It's confusing...
Maybe I'll try to call one of the dealers on the phone to see if they'll swing a deal if I'm purchasing 2 bodies.
Has anyone ever been able to get a lower price doing a deal like that? Just curious...

the rebates are a joke... Prices were raised to give rebate.  The day before the rebates I was about to spend 6800 on a few lenses and a camera...  I had them in my wishlist... now they are up to 7200 with rebates included.  Does anyone really fall for this stuff?  I guess they do or they would not do this...

I'm still confused with how Canon works. Purchasing a camera at a decent price is almost like working on Wall st. Sometimes the prices go up, and sometimes the prices go down. I called B and H to see if they would come down in price if I purchased 2 camera bodies. They wouldn't budge. I asked them if they would give me a competitive price if I showed them someone selling for less. I told them who it was. They still refused.
I can understand making a profit, but with how this last rebate worked... jacking up the prices before the rebate had me feeling like I got the rug yanked right out from under me. Something just feels a little weird about this. Ya know? ;)
I guess I need to wait some more or, go with that company with the much lower price. We'll see...
