Well, the fall 2006 “Canon rebates”:http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=PromotionsAct are finally here as expected. They are valid 10-15-2006 through 01-13-2007 so just in time for those of us going on Christmas vacation. Significantly, they aren’t discounting the new Digital Rebel XTi, but some of the tasty hardware I’ve been eyeing include. Also the rebates double if you buy two or more eligible products, so if I got the 70-200 and the 16-35, then the total rebate for both is $200.
Canon EOS 5D. This is a gorgeous full frame 12 megapixel professional camera. $300 off
Canon EF 70-200 F2.8L IS USM. $50 off of this really expensive lense
