...Now hopefully a crazy deal hits this month on the 24-70 II  ;)

There is a deal for the 24-70 II; $1,899 after rebate, plus 4% reward at B&H, unless you want an even more crazy deal than that.

http://www.canonpricewatch.com/blog/2013/11/ef-24-70mm-f2-8l-ii-usm-for-1899-at-bh/

There was already a deal on that one for $1699 after rebate. I purchased it and got my rebate two weeks later.

John B, I was responding to Mlc_Dave.  Did I hit the wrong quote?  Mlc_Dave, there is a deal on the Canon 24070 II.  (see link above).

Got it thanks! I was hoping for another new/refurb deal like the last to pick it up for $1600 now that I nearly blew a months salary on the 70-200! I'll definitely keep an eye out.

BTW, selling an L glass is a lot easier than you think, just put it up for sale on your local online site and see calls coming in ... Good luck, hope you get a good price.

Just pulled the trigger on this deal...thanks to CR and CPW for your help in finding this deal. This lens was on my wish list and I really thought it was out of reach, but with more than $600 off the regular price not to mention the sales tax I saved by ordering on the net, I couldn't afford to pass it up.  (How did that sound for justification?  :D )
Just a little puppy trying to make it in a big digital world.

I'm on the same boat. I pulled the trigger on this deal even though I have the 70-200 f4. I'll have to see if it is worth keeping both. In any case, I have friend who is already interested on the f4. Worst case is post it or CL.

CPW is God send if your are deal hunting. Got my 6d deal from a notification they sent and same with the double dip deal on the 100L.  Did I just spend $4k worth of gear ?   :o :o

I had the same dilemma when I picked up the f/2.8. I ended up keeping the f/4 because it's just as sharp and WAYYYYY easier to carry when you don't need the speed/DOF. I love them both.

I will also have a 70-200 f/4 is.  But, I can't wait to get the f/2.8.  And to think, the price actually beat the refurb (after rebates) price and was less than better condition used lenses.  I'll finally have a new resting place for my extra QR plate!
 :)

For now, I will keep both.  I have had the f/4 for a while and it is substantially smaller and lighter when the 2.8 is not needed.  I figure, if I want to sell the old one down the road, the price should hold up for a while.

Oh, and I also concur.  CPW is a great (albeit dangerous) tool.
