I have been tracking the price of Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM Telephoto Zoom Lens for quite some time and it has never gone down $2299.
I want to get it but I am not in any hurry, did any one see the price lesser than $2299. Do you think during Christmas it might go down further?

2000 eur 2 years ago, and will never regret it. I still kept the 135 mm f/2 though. Bokeh, sharpness of both is outstanding.

Not sure where you live but at least in the states slickdeals.net is a good place if you're looking for deals on lenses. I have a tracker setup for Canon and get posts all the time. You obviously get a lot of other random stuff but there's some good deals in there too pretty regularly.
