Winter 2012 Rebate Extended?
« on: January 05, 2012, 12:48:51 PM »

I noticed that "Instant Savings" on several Canon Lenses on the BH Photo site has been bumped to Feb 4, 2012.

The main Canon site still shows January 7.

The 50 1.8 is still showing Jan 7.

The ones I checked were the EF 16-35, EF 70-200 2.8 (IS and non-IS), and the EF 135 - and there are likely many others - with Instant Savings on the Feb 4, 2012 date.  Maybe a smaller or different lineup?

Cool.  I want to get $100 for it, but when it's for sale for $105, it's a hard sale :D

I personally would recommend just holding onto it.

I sold my first nifty fifty for about $70 a year ago, and recently re-purchased another. All my other lenses are L or Zeiss, but the nifty fifty is just so small and inexpensive, I rarely see any reason to not have it with me.
