... and the price reductions are way below the summer one, for example I bought my 600rt with €100 (now only €70) which is stange considering the new competition Canon is facing.

The biggest items missing that were included every time till now are the 70-300L (afaik was €150), the 70-200L/2.8 (was €200) and the 24-70L2 (was €300(!)). Esp. for the latter I wonder how many of this lens Canon sells - the Tamron 24-70 is reasonably priced, and who's going for the full price of Canon's L2 if you know it was €300 off already?

The actual CashBack is not listed in the primary Webside "Promotions".

Because i want an 3rd 600-EX-RT i´ve called the Hotline and they confirmed the CashBack.

Ordered the 600 a few Minutes ago  ::) .

It is, you need to use the red arrow on the right side of the picture line with the lenses so it scrolls until you reach the flashes :-) ... that's modern technology for you, but it is amicable of the hotline not to make their customers look too stupid (no offense meant) :-p

Ah, right, the link from the very top post works though: http://www.canon.de/winter-cashback/ and this is where the flashes are somewhat hidden at the end of the lens list.

Yes! That's true. But you can see this strategy throughout the last few CashBack promotions.
It was almost hilarious that i got 50 € back buying a 40/2.8 STM in summer 2013.

IMHO the German Canon marketing is following a clear strategy to promote products that will get new customers into the Canon harbor and no longer address the ambitious amateurs and pros that much.
Therefore the top products are missing.
I also think that they want to maybe get sales numbers of certain products up to achieve their forecasts.
So enough 24-70L/2.8 II sold means no promo on them.

For me, it is actually good that the 70-200 2.8 IS II is not on the list of promoted products. ;)
With the recent price cut to <1900€ in DE and an additional (hypothetical) 200-300€ cashback on top, I would have been very tempted to buy it (despite having a 70-200 F4 IS with which I am very happy). That money would then be missing for buying the Siggy 150-600 S (which is what I really need, as the 70-200 is currently my longest lens).

The only item that I am somewhat interested is the 600 EX-RT. But since I am a flash-on-camera user mostly, I wonder if it would be worth the upgrade from my 580 EX.

Be careful not to get too close to any of them. They are really sticky ;)
But as you already have the F4 you are very well equiped.
Siggy 150-600 S? Pretty heavy IMHO, but if you considered this already, ok. Otherwise wait for the C version and how it performes compared to the S and the Tamron.

IMHO stay with the 580 EX and put your money one the 150-600 you'll choose.
Have fun with it.

Also "no" from me, the 600rt is overpriced if you don't use the radio part. Most of all, after all this time 3rd-party triggers to rt-enable your older flashes are bound to be released sooner or later by Yongnuo and the like. The 600rt has the nice 200mm reflector and very good display/usability, but hardly worth the money if you've already got a "big" Canon flash.

As a long term observer and aoccasional user of Canon cashback promotions in "germanic Europe" (.AT. .DE, .CH) I have to disagree somewhat.  Especially in Germany Canon has been and is running a number of promotions for Pro/SemiPro EOS cameras, lenses and gear. One fairly decent promotion was the 5D III / 1D-X "pro lens cashback" has just expired on Oct. 31 2014. When combined with the "general/consumer-targeted" summer cashback promotion, it did offer some good "compound" discounts on a good number of hi-grade lenses including 24-70/2.8 II [-€ 250] in combination with purchase of 5D III or 1D-X.

But there are a number of additional promotions going on in parallel to the general Christmas/Winter cash-back promotion ["XXL promotion, max. -200 and an extra -50 € ]

7D II lens cashback promotion http://www.canon.de/For_Home/promotions/eos_7dmk2_objektiv_cashback/index.aspx

1D-X "try out" action is still on until Nov. 31, 2014 http://www.canon.de/For_Home/promotions/eos1dx_probetage/index.aspx

A highly flexible "accessory promotion" in conjunction with purchase of 5D III or 1D-X is also ongoing. € 200 are not a lot, but the amount can be applied towards absolutely any Canon EF/EF-S lens or any Canon speedlite or any other Canon accessory from Li-Ion batteries to Canon-branded photo bags. http://www.canon.de/For_Home/promotions/eos_zubehoerpromotion/index.aspx

Canon has learned however and does NOT allow combination of these "higher-end gear" promotions with the consumer-oriented "Christmas/Winter/XXL" cashback for larger, "compound" discounts.  :(

Also still on is free 1 year subscritpion to Adobe Creative Cloud with purchase of 5D III, 6D, G1X II, G7X
http://www.canon.de/For_Home/promotions/fotopromo/index.aspx

Also there is a Capture One Pro 6 full license for free promotion with 5D III purchase http://www.canon.de/For_Home/promotions/phase_one_canon_bundle/index.aspx
limited to a total of 2000 licenses - Canon website does not say, whether all licenses are gone by now or still available

Overall ... nothing wildly attractive at the moment, but "better than nothing". :-)

Yes! You are correct. Not only "somewhat". Overall.

I was exclusively looking at the "Summer/Winter CashBack" promotions when I pointed out my statement.
Take them alone, I think I am still correct, that there the values have been lowered. But that aproach was wrong.

But - and this is what you pointed out right - there are additional, different promotions for the pros, that are tared out in a way very attractive for them but less to amateurs because you have to put in much more money to get them.

So clever marketing adressing the customer in a clever way.    I take my hat off to them.
