Canon USA has extended their lens rebate till October 27, 2012. See poster for details on individual lens. In addition, there will be a big sale on the Canon EOS-5D MK II camera around the globe, starting on October 1, 2012, until the inventory is depleted or gone. The US price is now $1,799 officially, which means one can buy it even cheaper in many big camera stores and online merchants. This is a very good price for this very good camera.
