is it a sign that Canon has decided to refresh their lens line up to better match with Nikon?

discuss!

It means that some assclown beat me to the last 580exii while some other beeps got great deals on the 5d2 :D

Oh. The 5D3 are coming. Save your pennies.

i am prob talking out of my "bottom", but i cant help but get the feeling while Canon's production facility was heavily affected by the quake/tsunami, their R&D department kept working (maybe even worked over time) and Canon is counting on a big product release party to make up the missed sales?

again, i could be talking out of my "bottom" on this, but I read the Nikkor G glasses are 1 gen ahead of competing Canon L glasses (newer coating and newer material?), other than the 70-200 F/4 IS L and 70-200 F/2.8 IS II L? ie 24-70 G vs 24-70 L, 24-1200 G vs 24-105 L etc

Everything good is sold out. The 70-200mk 2 at 1,699.00 probably sold in seconds.

I'll bet that lens did go fast, if they had any in stock. Last time I saw them in stock was about a week ago and I got one about a week before that. They usually came and went within an hour, even at the $1999 price.
I'd been watching the refurbs a lot this week for another lens, the 35L, but it never showed up.
Now the 5D Mark II is a different matter. It puzzled me that they had so many of them that it would be for sale for days on end. Seems like they came in waves.
But for most of us, I'd say the 70-200 price was a Deal that Never Was, since it never seemed to be in stock.

I hope our patience will be rewarded. Good luck with your search.
