Canon instant rebates coming to EOS R cameras and lenses in September

This site contains affiliate links to products and services. We may receive a commission for purchases made through these links.

I have been told to expect an instant rebate program on EOS R and RF glass starting in September in both Canada and the United States. I do not know what other countries will have these programs, but I imagine this is going to be a very aggressive Christmas shopping season for many consumer product industries.

The backlog of lens orders should be sorted out by the end of August I have been told by a few retailers, though predicting demand is still a bit precarious.

The rebates won’t be huge, but I do expect to see both the EOS R6 and EOS R5 to be included in these rebate programs.

This is great to hear! I have been looking at a number of RF lenses for a while, but have not committed because of COVID's effects on my savings. Even a couple hundred dollars will go a long way these days. All that is left now is to convince the wife. :sneaky:

Fingers Crossed! In Canada they've been bouncing between $100 off, $200 off, and $100 off with some accessories (i.e. bag or card etc.) thrown in. Here's hoping it gets a bit more aggressive.

Rebate not much good on lenses they can keep in stock. After last order fiasco (8 months and counting); I won't be buying anything from Canon's website. If B&H has a lens I want at a discount; I'll probably pick it up though.

Anyone got an open couch? When I buy the R5, my wife will probably kick me out.

Might be Christmas / Birthday for me if they take $100 off the RF 600mm f/11. Haven’t had too many stock issues on that one.

Tell her you need to get a motorcycle or a porsche to counter your midlife crisis and let her bargain you down to an R5 with a 24-70/2.8, a 15-35/2.8 and a 70-200/2.8. worked for me. (y)

I was one of the lucky ones who got $200 off my R5 with sales tax rebated when they first came out so I saved enough to cause me to get one.

I have a LNIB 600/11 with the canon original hood. Let me know if you are interested.

In Germany their is a 250 cashback for the R6, but it ends in August, long before the R3 is announced. That is a problem for people who are not sure if they will buy the R3 and the R6.

It started this month in Israel, under the wings of Canon Europe. I think this is the first time Canon offers instant rebates in Israel. Rebates go as high as $250 for an R5 with EF to RF adapter (plain one), and $150 for the RF 24-70mm f/2.8 IS USM.

Yes but "WITH". Thats like Germany.
You have to buy a camera for this. And I think "only" 3 lenses for one year or so.

Years ago that was without this constraint. Some (many) lenses had this rebate.

The promotion is by Canon Austria. My understanding is a rebate is valid for a lens bought without a camera, but the text smells like it was machine translated, so I might be wrong.

Good news.
But why not try this approach: First, actually get these lenses in stock. And random drops of a handful of lenses at your own retail website don’t count. Then, worry about everything else.

Sony is putting good rebates on their cameras..I hope Canon gives some soon...keeping full price on almost everything {far higher from 2020} is not helping
