When you purchase through links on our site, we may earn an affiliate commission. Here's how it works.


  1. Are we still expecting camera rebates – bad economy, weak Christmas sales expected, $ a bit stronger, blah blah?

  2. It usually takes a couple of days for the rebates to show up on web sites, but if they are an authorized dealer, they normally apply them.

    Some dealers merely post a new lower price. The 70-200mm f/2.8 IS $1699 regular street price – $130 = $1574.99 for example.

    The rebates are usually accompanied by a price increase, so expect to pay more after the rebate is over.

  3. With the much larger and expanded rebates in Canada, plus the current exchange rates, lenses in Canada are a worthwhile savings for the high end models.

    The following rates were based on the $.8378 closing rate of October 20. The rate is dropping more to day, currently .8199 cad = 1.00 US so the cost is almost 2% lower today.

    For example, a 300mm f:/2.8 is USD $3728 after rebate and exchange rate while the USA prices at B&H is $4100. Save $372.

    A 400mm f:/5.6 is $986.93 from Canada, B&H price: $1140. Save $153

    The 400mm f:/2.8 is $6041 from Canada, B&H Price $6800. Save $750

    I took lens prices from “The Camera Store” in canada.
