^ no idea yet, supposedly going to begin on the 18th, id assume so. but that makes a new 5D $1800... small clearance before the 5D2 maybe?

And I want a 5D MK II... not a crappy, old fashioned 5D.

I may be kicking my own ass when I ask this question. But are these off the canon site?

They work through the retail vendors, and generally are instant. Check BH or Adorama next week, and if they are on, youll see the price xxx$ cheaper.

Hmmm I bought 3 of those things in the last 2 months. :unamused:

Normally I'd care, but 2 of them have all had the prices go up SINCE I bought them by around this same amount, so yeah, no huge savings....

But I might be buying something else on that list soon. :lol:

I've looked at the list twice hoping the 24-105 4L IS might be on it... but I don't think I want that convincing me to buy one right now.

If the 5D kit is the only package with the discount, we can work something out Carl :$$$:

05-15-2008, 05:32 PM
it's still my primes are waaaaaay faster, it's ****ing huge, it takes 82mm filters, and costs a ****load thinking, yes....

For landscape shots I like the 17-40mm way better. I'm just in the air as to weather or not this is worth the extra money? But now with the 40D it makes for an awesome standard zoom there and an awesome UWA zoom on the 5D. But so would the 17-40.....

40D isn't much more than an XSi kit with the rebate.

Have a question. Can the instant rebate be combined with pixma printer mail-in rebate? The instant rebate note says it cannot be combined with other rebates. But given that the instant rebates are automatically applied for the price, it sounds as if there is no way to get the mail in rebate for the printer. Anybody called Canon about this?

subimatt
05-21-2008, 07:50 AM
^ the instant rebates work with the printer rebate.

I talked to canon today and they insist that they cannot be combined. They don't even know well about the printer rebate. this is insane. printer rebate seems to be of no use at all at this moment.
