I have been looking for a deal on the EF 14 2.8 II and occasionally check the price list on CR. This morning the price at Adorama was $1,919.19USD. Next closest was 1,999USD. I usually buy my stuff at B&H so I called to see if they would match the price on Adorama's site. They said they couldn't because if you go straight to their web site (not using the link from CR) the price is over $2K. Apparently the link from CR represents a special deal and they can't match those.
I am not knocking B&H I just wasn't aware that these opportunities - specials discounts - are available if you use the links from CR at least for Adorama. Is this something new or just a one-off occurrence? I bet I am not the only one interested in getting deals like this . . .
I am going to make it a point to check those links more often and thought the rest of you would like to know about this as well . . .
