Now will the Canon Price Watch Notify system work with a Canon site glitch? Crazy good price.

I just quit trying to get it. The page on the 135L was bugged.

Actually there is a workaround. You first put something else in your cart like a cheap accessory. Then you open another window and add the 135L from the Canonpricewatch site. Then you go back to the original window with the accessory in your cart and continue the checkout. The lens will show in your cart during step 3 of the checkout. It works! Now whether or not the honor the purchase or not, well, time will tell.

I have broken my head all through the weekend over this. Here's the lowdown.
They don't have any refurbished 135 f/2 L lenses. Period. Not only is it not in stock. It is not even for sale.
What we are seeing is an old cached page. I spent half an hour with a sales rep and then her supervisor over this.
However, Slclick, since you were actually able to make a purchase they might give you a new one for that price or something like that, which will be cool. Let us know what happened, and good luck!

The 135L has so many other great uses other than indoor sports. Except for Macro and Supertele I have and can use it in almost any situation with the proper sneaker zooming. I put this lens in the same category as the 85 1.2. It has a unique look and color unlike any other Canon lens.If you can get it , get it, especially if it's through the Refurb program at 696.

So did they end up sending you the refurb'd 135mm after all?

No, they cancelled my order. It's ok, I already have one.

Ok... this will sound weird. I had followed your workaround when I read your post, without any real hope of it working. I just received a shipment notification from Canon. Also, another email from Canon saying they didn't have the refurbished one in stock. The email was sent much before I "ordered" the lens. So I have no idea what lens that 3.5 lb box is carrying. Totally confused  ???
