$1999 - $300 MIR = $1699

2% eBay bucks and 5% discover, capped at $75, takes your net to about $1584.

According to the post "BuyDig is an authorized dealer and eligible for the $300 rebate. They also had a sale on the 70-200 II and the 100L Macro last week."

I picked up an 100L for $899 - $150 rebate = $749 also from BuyDig a couple of weeks ago. Took a few days to ship, but it's fantastic, and Canon approved my rebate pre-submission. Sent it all off last week.

Excellent price and I suspect another year before we see it again this low AND/OR a release of an IS version would IMHO drop the price a little.

It's still 700 more than my Tamron. Tempting but still alot more in my eyes. Especially since I'm investing in printing stuff like color munki and more studio crap.

The Greentoe deal is much better and I would assume that you still get your 5% discover (I don't know the rules for this card):

The Greentoe deal is good, but I don't know about "much better".

I had to go through hoops at Greentoe to get the "welcome coupon". A week of reminding them before they finally sent me the amount via PayPal. I think it's part of their tactic, likely most people forget about it and never bug them.

Personally, I'd rather buy from a retailer direct because I don't have to deal with an intermediary -- but that's just me.

Yep, it's good to have choices. Competition among sellers helps us all. ;)
