Canon Price Reduction On Most 'L' Lenses


A partial display of Canon EF lens lineup

Canon has apparently initiated a 'permanent' price decrease for most of its EF 'L' lenses, with the notable exception of the EF 200-400mm f/4L IS USM 1.4X Extender lens. Below is the list of the lenses with its corresponding reduction. In recent months, the US Dollar has gained against the Japanese Yen. Now can be a good time to buy that 'L' lens you have always wanted. You can read my Canon wildlife and travel lens recommendation here and see my works on MichaelDanielHo.com.
