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.

Thanks jhubson!  I had bought my 70-200 2.8L a little over 3 weeks ago when I saw your post and was able to get an extra $100 credit today...  ;D

I had to call them twice to get the final price of $1974, ordered mine Saturday night when the price was $2174, woke up Sunday morning price was $2074 called and they changed the price.

Monday night find the link in my thread about the price of this lens bringing it down to $1974... live chatted with B&H Tuesday morning. It took them quiet a while to finally accept the price was $1974. Gave them the link to there Google+ 100 off link and the item number SHCA7020028L which will bring up the $1974 price.

Finally 15 minutes later they said they would refund the difference. Felt like an ass having them changed the price twice but oh well that's customer service...

Lens will be here tomorrow!

Here's a link to the google+ add if anyone was interest Link

May I ask whats the real difference between $1974 and $2015. When you're spending that amount on a lens (which is going to last you many many years) then the extra $40 shouldn't really make a major difference. Especially a difference whether you purchase it or not. And if it does then maybe you're not in the market to buy that lens!

I would do the same as DCMoney did, to save $40. Even though $40 is not that much, but why pay more when you can pay for less.

Good for you  ;D but I think you missed the point that I was trying to relate in my message.

Was your point that you have trouble with numbers or math?   :o

I had to call them twice to get the final price of $1974, ordered mine Saturday night when the price was $2174, woke up Sunday morning price was $2074 called and they changed the price.

$2074, not $2015.  Meaning a $100 difference, not $41.  Can you relate to that point?

$2074, not $2105.  Meaning a $100 difference, not $41.  Does that point make sense?[/color]

Issac, I have the version I and ready to get version II. Even with $300 rebate from Canon, I was little hesitated to buy the version II, until jhubson1 shared the link with an additional $100 off, man….I knew I have to do it. And I did, lens will arrive tomorrow.


Hi neuroanatomist,
I ordered the B&W filter that you recommended.

Thanks, Dylan

I hope I am not off-topic here since 10 days ago I got a refurb for $1999 + Tax = 2140; then I saw this post and got a "new" one from Adorama for a price matched $1974 + 0 Tax = $1974. Thank you OP!!! 

Now I was hoping that the new one would focus as good or better than the refurb one since I did not think it was as sharp as my 70-300L. I did a test.... (I know lenses get sharper after they are "broken in") so advantage goes to the refurb; I did a small test. I shot a slanted carpenter's ruler with both lenses at 100mm (almost 100mm ;) ) both at f2.8. Spot AF at the 12" mark.

The 4478 is the older refurb unit and the 4481 image is the newer one. Both 100%crop of jpegs no sharpening done PP: Is the new one at least as good as the refurb?

I think they are similar but the older one had a hood on and looks to have better contrast...

Im confused, where is the $2015 coming in at?

BTW the lens is awesome, came in today!
