Currently through following this link B+H currently has super pricing on the 70-200  $1974.  I do not think I have ever seen it priced this low...I just made the purchase.

Thank you jhubson1, you just saved me $100! Thanks to you and to Amazon's delay in shipping which allowed me to cancel my order with them.

/Registered just to say Thanks!

I am wondering where you found this link for $1974.00.  When you  click on the rebate link on bh photo you come up with 2074.00

Do not know how long this will last...hope everyone saves that extra $$ and takes advantage of this while they can...what a great feeling to know that something as simple as a post like this can save some ppl some $$$.  If you know of anyone in the market let them know as well and pass on the savings.

Thanks jhubson1 for the link, $400 of saving.  ;)  I ordered it last night. I paid an additonal $1.75 for 3-day shipping.


So far....I think $1974 plus FREE shipping for version II is lowest. Thanks again jhubson1.

Now...i need to sell my version 1, $1400 - $1500 for cash.

I just got off the phone with a CSR at B&H and he said that he had never heard of the lower price ($1974) or of the website canonpricewatch.com, and when he tried to go to that website access was denied!

However when he searched for the lens on B&H's own website it did show the lower price, so he is going to credit me with the $100 difference.

Thanks to jhubson1 for posting that info....that certainly makes that lens a bargain, and it is even less than the re-furbed lens!

Same here...I called B&H just to confirm the condition of the lens. Yes...it's BRAND NEW, not returned nor refurb.

I ordered yesterday and was going to post about the newer low price, but my forum account was messed up.

When I ordered though, the shipping wasn't free.  A few hours later, they changed it to free shipping.  So I emailed BH customer support to request a shipping credit.  Hopefully they will give it to me...

I am upgrading a version 1.  Thanks to all the canon rumors folks for speaking so glowingly of the upgraded version two - that helped my decision  :D

Later,

Damn. I paid almost $2500 at B&H when it first came out. GREAT lens. I use this so much and get amazing shots with it. Very versatile lens. Works great with the 2x extender also.

Wanted to throw my thanks in, too.  I just purchased a 5D Mk II w/24-105 (my first L...yay) and when I heard about this massive sale on the always impressive 70-200 I just had to pull the trigger.

Unfortunately, B&H offers little in the way of comfort when shipping to me.  $51 for the lens and a few filters.  Ugh.
