Canon Lenses – Instant Rebate

You might have caught this as it started yesterday. Canon's offering instant rebates on a variety of Lenses (and flashes), but if you go direct to Canon's website there's tax and hefty shipping fees involved. You can find the same rebate information over at B&H and for some this means saving big on sales tax. Nothing overly exciting, and it extends throughout September 3rd. Current Canon Lens and Flash rebate information can be found following the link (click here).

    I recommend the Canon 17-55mm f/2.8 IS if you don't have a 5D.

    It has great range on a crop sensor, and is plenty wide.

    It also gives you great low-light capabilities, and IS!

    @Nas - I really like the sharpness and range of the 24-105mm F/4L with IS. The only problem you'll run into is the F4 in low light settings, but even so, it's a great lens.

    Ok emm or anyone else who can possibly help me . I have 1,500.00 to spend on a lens . Would anyone know of a good 1 possibly 1 lens that would cover short,medium and wide ranges for filming. I would rather have 1 that cover all three but will go with what you all think is best. Thanks in advance. 🙂

    @ Robin,

    This is what happens every time Canon has a "rebate". The re-sellers like B&H, Amazon, etc, are forced to sell at Canon's fixed retail price during the rebate ($1049 in your case).

    When the rebate is not running, sellers can choose to lower prices as much as they want, dipping into their profits.

    I bought the 100mm 2.8L macro 4 months ago USA version, brand new, on Amazon for $879 free shipping. The next day the "rebate" went into effect and the price of the lens after rebate was $979.

  5. Something is fishy. I looked at the 100mm 2.8 Macro lens just the other day, the price then was set to 999 or 979 resepectively for the US made or imported one. Today with the rebate it's priced up to 1049 before deducting 70 dollars. Nice.
