With the latest rebates available just about everyone is selling the Canon 100mm IS for $979. Is that a good price?

I got mine for $807.00 the beginning of this year from the last Canon rebate. I guess $979.00 isn't too bad of a price seeing the weak US dollar.

Take Care,
Cheers, Patrick

Unless you need IS on the 100mm you could get the non-IS original. It's still incredibly sharp and almost half the price. I use mine for macro shots. They're both f/2.8 and both have USM. You don't get a hood with the non-IS version though, but B&H has a third-party hood for $15.

It's a good post-tsunami price, and only $80-90 more than the lowest during rebates last year.

Check it out on CanonPriceWatch (external link). There's a very useful graph if you scroll to the bottom of the page. You can also compare to Canon refurb and used on the same page.

I think I paid around $800 for mine when i got it...

Given its my workhorse, I am happy I bought the L for the weathersealing and that...even though Im pretty sure the non-L can take it too, IS also is very useful

I just paid 979 from B&H for a replacement. (my first was damaged beyond repair). It has sometimes been lower in the past. With the strong yen and supply problems, i would not count on it going down again any time soon.

Ouch, what happened? D:

I found a really pretty flower on the edge of a lake that was attracting a variety of insects. I took a few shots and then stopped to change gear--adding a monopod and an extension tube. I was working too fast, and the lens fell into the lake, hitting a rock and coming to rest in about 4 inches of water. It actually survived the impact fine and still works, but the internal surfaces and circuit boards got wet. Canon explained that it should work fine (apart from spots) for awhile but that it will grow fungus, and the circuit boards are likely to fail because the chips are not water-sealed. The cost of taking it apart, cleaning and realigning all the elements, and replacing the boards --what it would take to do a repair they could stand behind--was greater than the cost of a new one. I ran their explanation about the circuit boards past a friend who is an electrical engineer, and he agreed with them. Sigh....

^- And I agree as well, if water got IN there, it probubly destroyed, or will destroy, the circuit boards unless it had a way to get out...

Oh well :( sorry for your loss, i think id cry if mine died
