Guys, Canon does not have rebates. These "rebates" are completely fake. Its a marketing ploy to try to get the uninformed to pay the same amount of money that they normally would, only they think they are getting a deal. For example, the Canon 70-200 f4 IS USM was selling on Amazon for $1199 a couple weeks ago. Today, after a $150 rebate, it is selling for $1199. Wow, what a great discount! I better buy one quick before they sell out!
