I was going to pull the trigger on Amazon today for $989 and I see they went up now to $1089 so after the rebate that brings it down to the price it was this morning before the increase. I kick myself for waiting...

Anyone know the best place to buy one, or should I just wait until closer to Christmas?

Thanks

I have been tracking 135L price and have seen it price fluctuate on Amazon between $1089 & $989 twice last week.

I would expect Amazon to drop to current going price $989 in few days

When I never noticed 135L refurb this time? And even when I bought it last time with 20% off it was like $760 total after tax.

Good deal, purchased through Amazon Smile, .5% back to my favorite charity, used my $300 gift card from my 24-70II purchase, and 2% rewards incoming. Still no tax in MN. Had to splurge on the 3.99 one day shipping at that price.
