Great Prices Now
« on: November 30, 2011, 02:09:36 PM »
I'm impressed with some of the price drops I'm seeing. Looks like the reductions that we were seeing earlier in Canada and Europe may be starting to hit the U.S.

Not just the 5D, but the 7D as well. (In fact, I saw this morning that you can buy a 7D with a 28-135 for less than the body only price just a few weeks ago). Too bad I'm not in the market right now.

For the record, I don't consider this a "sign" of anything other than Canon is trying to scoop up added market share. (Actually, maybe I do consider this a sign: they are concerned about competition from Sony, Fuji, etc., and figure the best way to compete in the DSLR market is cut prices and try to lock people into their system. But, I don't consider it a "sign" that new product announcements are imminent.)

How many of y'all think these price drops will continue with next Christmas? (will the christmas prices be lower next year than this year?)

I agree and if the intent is to lock people into their system, it worked for me.  These lens prices are just too good!  AFter getting $400 off the 70-200 2.8L IS II I just could not resist getting the 35 1.4L even if a model II might be coming.

I say anyone looking to buy Canon lens and in particular "L" lens this is the time!
1DX, 24mm f1.4L II, 35mm f1.4L, 50mm f1.2L, 85mm f1.2L II, 135mm f2L, 24-70mm f2.8L II, 70-200mm f2.8L IS II :  D800, D4, and a whole bunch of Nikon lenses
