Deal seems to be gone.  Oh well.  I wonder if it wasn't a mistake: they accidentally doubled up the $300 rebate perhaps?

The deal is still there..you need to place the lens in the cart and start your checkout ... you'll then see the updated price.  Mistake or not, the double-dip is there if you want it!
Just a little puppy trying to make it in a big digital world.

Got mine.  You don't see the rebate offer directly posted on B&H but I found the mail-in forms at Adorama.  But since I like B&H better, I ordered from them and they emailed me the rebate forms after my order was confirmed.  $1899 total out the door.

OK, I got one as well.  Terrific deal!  Nice $600 discount plus free shipping, and no sales tax saves me another 200 bucks.  That's more than a 25% savings.  Thanks  for the tip CR

Ordered mine from BH this morning. Paid $2199 and BH emailed the rebate form at the same time as the just shipped email. $1899 after rebate. Plus 4% points.

Ordered from Buydig on Nov 10 (before B&H or Adorama jumped in) cause I didn't want to miss a limited opportunity.  Per the transaction, delivery due November 15 to 21.  No tracking number, yet. 

Trying to be patient (hey, been looking for a deal on this lens for months, what's the big deal if I wait another week).

Same situation over here. Input tracking number, refreshing the webpage at least once an hour. Shows a shipping weight of just over 6lbs. A lot of padding in that box...

or maybe they threw an extra lens in the box by accident?  ;)

...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.

MLC_Dave.  Check this thread out.  A guy just got the 24-70 II lens for $1520 after rebate.  Better than the previous deal.  Check how he did it.

My lens arrived yesterday from B&H. First look: Metal, Heavy and beautiful and slightly sharper than F4 (@f2.8 vs f4) but cant find difference at @ F4 on both lens.

Is there anything specifically look for in the lens itself for defects?

Will have to compare my F4 with the new F2.8. Have to upgrade my Lowepro Microtrekker 200 bag (bought in 2001) to fit my 2.8 attached to 5DM3. Will search the forum for bag ideas.

Mine's on the UPS truck right now :)  Just hope my son is home to sign for it when the UPS truck arrives so I don't have to go hunt it down at the UPS facility tomorrow.

Mine just arrived today.  The thing is a monster compared to my 70-200 f/4!  The IS is amazing  as well, I was getting great results at 1/20th handheld.  Makes me wish my 24-70 had IS too.

Just got email from Buydig.....shipped today!  Now I watch for the delivery.  Even though the B&H deal wasn't announced til after I purchased, I do get "Ebay Bucks" which ought to cover a filter or something.  So, with mail in rebate, net $1899 then minus another $88.46.

And, used Bill Me Later, as well.  I think this is turning out OK.

Got mine Tuesday. The box is huge!

Not THAT much sharper than the 70-200mm or that much more impressive looking (heavier for sure), but just such a classy product. Those who ordered will like it, I think! Nice lens.
