Do you think they're doing rebates to clear out the stock because a new camera is on the horizon? Is there a history of rebate timing and new announcements?

They were in the fall rebates as well.  it probably has more to do with nikon rebates and the need to match them.

The 60d is a new model, and 7D is not that old.  They won't be replaced this year.

Will these rebates apply to refurbished products as well?

Agreed, the 7D isn't that old.  I think it's funny, many posters saying "I don't to get a 7D because its getting dated"

That is funny. I've seen pros that still use 5D1's as their main body.
But, not only is the 7D not very old it seems to be aging very well.

there's a history of rebates twice a year, every year.  don't jump to conclusions about it

Canon has rebates, late spring and late fall.  This seems to be one of the short term in-between rebates.  Probably to soften the recent increase in lens pricing.

Well we should find out tonight at 9pm or 12am PST if the rebate is actually happening and if the dealers are going to keep prices the same or raise them. I sure hope they keep them the same so the $200 7D rebate will actually save $200.

A Facebook post from an hour ago by "Action Camera" in California notes: "Canon rebates are on now on the 60D, 7D, and several lenses....come in and check them out!"  A Google Shopping search reveals that there are a few ~$845-$860 prices to be had, which seems to be a drop of about $40 from earlier today.  I'm not sure if this reflects the "instant rebate", since only mail-in rebates have been in effect when I've bought camera equipment.  I suppose we'll know soon now, regardless.

Hmm. That poster is from Canon, it appears.  If so, then it's quoting $999-$100 = $899 for the 60D. However, Amazon has the 60D for ~$888 (I think it just dropped more, actually), and another at least semi-reputable dealer has it for <$850.  Will these retailers not pick up the $100 savings since their prices are already well below the sales prices listed on that poster? In other words, are we to think that the Amazon and BH prices already include a $100 "instant rebate"? I was hoping for a $888 (Amazon and BH pricing through the past week) - $100 = $788 price for the 60D...

I am ready to buy the 7D if the price indeed drops on BH from $1488.00 to $1288.00 credit card is out and armed.

B&H raised their price on the 7D with the 18-135mm. Was $1720 and now is $2,000. Absolutely ridiculous.

As I had feared, it looks like some retailers are moving their "regular" prices up to the listed prices on the Canon poster, then giving the "instant rebate". Unfortunately, as noted above with BH, this "sale" price is actually higher than the pre-sale price.  Nice.

I did just check Amazon, and at least the 60D is still listed at the price it has been for the past week or so (~$888).  It looks like these rebates only really save anyone money when the retailer is selling the product at the Canon-recommended / MSRP price to begin with.  Fortunately, again, at least Amazon hasn't yet raised their prices to match the "before" prices listed on the Canon rebate poster. Ugh.

Well, I will give it to Canon and B&H.  They sure make it an easy choice not to buy a new body at rebate time.
