This deal is very appealing and I might just add it to my shopping cart.
Any chance a similar deal with the 85L?

The deal has been going on for more than a week. I ordered it back then, and I am supposed to get also 4% store credit. This bring the price down to about $1,200.

If this lens is still $800 better than the 50mm f/1.4, I say go for it. You're not going to find this lens at a better price.
In landscape photography, when you shoot is more important than where.

Gear: Canon 5DmkII, 17-40mm f/4 L, 50mm f/1.4, 70-200mm f/4.

The 24 1.4L at $1259 would interest me

Question is though, since I've been looking at this lens for a while, waiting to pull the trigger...  The mail in rebate, is it good only in the US or is Canada eligible too?

When I bought my 24-70 II, I received a coupon/code/can't remember saying buying this plus a pixma printer would get me an American Express gift card but only if I was a resident of the lower 48.

Looks like the deal no longer exists, unless I'm missing something.  I'm seeing $1619 with just the $180 mail-in rebate.

Yes, and I believe that you might have to click on checkout also. You can reverse the checkout if you are not ready buy now.

I also seem to remember that earlier this year this lens was selling for ~$12xx, because I almost got it then. So you might get another chance if you decide to not get it now. I decided to order it this time.

Ah, yes.  You don't see it until the checkout page (which you couldn't get to at that time of day on Saturday because they're closed for the sabbath).

Does anyone know about this? I've been eyeing this lens for a while now too!

Hmm, according to this document (grabbed from the 24-70LII thread/Amazon):
http://g-ec2.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/electronics/Camera/Canon/2013/Lenses/CanonEFLensMIRClaimform._V355970502_.pdf

The first line of the fine print states:
Quote
Terms of offer: Offer good in the 50 United States, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, on products purchased by an end-user customer from Canon Authorized Dealer only. Offer void where taxed, restricted or otherwise prohibited by Federal, State or Local law.

So I guess that puts that one to bed for us Canadians?
