I guess all that there is to look forward to this week is for a price drop in the 5d2 in the united states - hopefully to $1999

That won't happen.

The retail price would go up by 90% of the rebate amount.

$2499 is the the current retail in many places. Used to be $21xx before disaster. There's no way the "distributor pricing" as claimed by the leading stores is still that high!!  ::)

So if the rebate is $300, expect the retail price to go up to $2699 to $2799!  >:(

So we could see the next 1, 5, and 7 series
That would be like Christmas, Easter and Birthday on the same day... (and it likely will happen with the same probability)

Wouldn't worry too much about it.  After all, this is CanonRumors, not CanonCameraRumors.

I wouldn't be surprised if they do so, but given the other forum thread where prices such as in Canada are $1999USD and shipping to the US will add roughly $20, I can't see why they would pull such a move. I see that more often in lens rebates over camera bodies.

Photo Rumors says the rebate is $100. Actually, they are calling it a $100 instant savings, so I guess maybe that means you don't have to mail in the rebate? But still, they are saying $100.

The price cuts in other countries are a bit confusing, but could be attributed to lots of factors. My theory remains that it could be one large retailer decides to clear out stock and that prompts competitive price cuts from others.

I haven't seen any of the actual literature on the rebates.

I'll get that in Canada tomorrow and see why the big price drop. If it was only a $100 drop in Canada, lots of retailers are selling the 5D2 at a significant loss, and I doubt that's the case. The camera sells just fine.

At Amazon Germany the prizes of 7D and 5D2 also dropped at about 50 to 80 Euro, so I guess it wasn't just a local story.

Ok, so now September 22nd is well and officially past, and no announcements of any sort. 

Next time, go troll somewhere else.  Maybe just stick to comments on the DigitalRev blog pages, since you value their bogus information so highly.

The video is exactly what everyone on the forum felt! I guess the guys didn't update twitter as the video shows in detail the pain of the event!

Ouch.  Somehow, I don't associate 'S100' and 'SX40 HS' with 'pro'.  But then, I suppose the fact that a few people in Hongkong - and *only* a few people in Hongkong, in the whole wide world - were invited should have been a clue.  A big clue.  Well, maybe when they said, "Here come the DSLRs," they were referring to themselves. (DSLR = deluded, silly, laughable rubes.)

That video is brilliant! And the presenter too!

Loved the way he went "So, guess we'd better take a look at the... SX...40... S-H-I... Oh, no, erm, HS!"!

And then mockingly made the extending zoom extend outta his groin like a sarcastic erection!
