it's a better price here:
you see what i did there?

remember people, there are 4 versions of this lens....

the linked version in the OP is the 2.8, NON is... It's $1190 at B&H:

so the amazon "deal" is OK, but nothing spectacular. They just always compare their prices to MSRP to make them look like it's a sale 24/7. Daniel, your version is the cheapest option (f4 no is), the f4 is is similar in price as the f2.8 w/o is, then the 2.8 with IS is ~$1700....

confused yet? :wave:

And just waiting for the next canon rebate sale usually knocks another $100-$200 from the 7-2 line.

I am soo confused. I really thought that was a good deal.

Anybody miss me while I was gone. I have been going a rough patch at the office. But we are better. So now I am back to spend all waking minutes on NSOP.

i was going to welcome you back, but figured a non-OT thread wasn't the place for it

Ahh thanks..I am glad someone noticed!

I am soo confused.

70-200 f/4 non IS = $600
70-200 f/4 IS = $1200
70-200 2.8 non IS = $1200
70-200 2.8 IS = $1700
