Adorama is actually tripling the lens rebates if purchased with a body.

EDIT: It's official. Sent it in to Canon Rumors and what do ya know... :D

===============

Just pulled the trigger on the 5D MK III body and combined it with the 85 1.2. Total came out to $5248, shipped, which is odd because... when I tried that combo on B&H, the total was $5398. $150 difference, which is the amount of the rebate for that particular lens.

After looking at how Adorama broke down the costs, I realized that they actually doubled the rebate and deducted that amount from the already discounted listed price for the lens.

85 1.2 Regular price: $2199
Instant rebate: -$150
listed price: $2049
Body combo instant rebate: -$150
Expected total: $1899
Actual total: $1749($150 less)

Ultimately, they're tripling the lens rebate amount if you purchase with a body. I tried this combination out with most other lenses and the results were the same - it will work with Speedlites, too. To make this deal even sweeter, mr. rebates offers 3% cashback for Adorama purchases, so I saved another $157.44.

Grand total: $5090.56. I basically picked up the 85 1.2 for $1590.56 brand new!

I'm glad that I held out on picking up the MK III.

Just thought I'd share. :)

How it works:

Empty your cart... search for the 5D Mark III body(or any qualifying body).

Before adding it to your cart, click on the "Buy together and save" link that's located to the right of the picture of the DSLR body.

In that list that generates, choose one of the items, then scroll up and click the "add to cart" button. When you calculate the total, you'll see what I mean.

Good luck.

Wow. Indeed Adorama's price for 5dIII and lens is less than B&H's
Must not spend 4500$ on a new camera and lens because of 80$ glitch in price. Must resist.

they may not be tripling, but just didnt raise the reg price to 2499 like the other stores? essentially same really, great deal here either way u look at it. wish i could take advntge of the deal

What stores are you speaking of? If it's anything other than the big three(Amazon, Adorama and B&H), then you're shopping at the wrong place, buddy.

Adorama is indeed tripling the lens rebates when purchased with a qualifying body.

Dude that runs Canon Rumors confirmed it with his Adorama contact.

Peep it.

What are you talking about? The discounts are still being applied. Please go troll somewhere else.
