Lots of good stuff available right now.
We'll see how long anything stays in stock!

I all but ordered a 2x extender earlier tonight. The only reason I didn't was the street price was just slightly more than $40.00 over the refurb price. The 2x extender is a purchase I wanted to make more for the future than for right now. I could not justify paying almost 90% for a refurb compared to what I could get a new lens for especially when I am ordering it for later. But, this new promotion changes that. When I saw I could get an additional 15% off, that put me over the edge.

Only thing I can say right now is I am lucky the 100-400 f4.5-5.6 IS Mark II is sold out. $1,495.32 is very tempting.... :-|

This. I will be buying one once I sell some stuff, but this would have been hard to resist had I seen it before they sold out.

The 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II may be slow, but everything I've heard and read points to it being a superb lens and a marked improvement over the lens it replaced.

It gets a perfect 10 in the fredmiranda review section
http://www.fredmiranda​.com …/595/sort/7/cat​/27/page/2 (external link)

vs. a 9.7 (still an extremely high score) for the 200-400mm f/4L IS USM 1.4x Extender
http://www.fredmiranda​.com …/447/sort/7/cat​/27/page/2 (external link)

I had been lusting after the 200-400 f/4L for a while and recently saw one advertised locally for $7K used (a very good used price), but couldn't rationalize the $5K extra for a one stop improvement. I could upgrade my 1D X to the Mk II version for less and utilize the 1D X Mk II's one stop improvement with every lens.

UGH! Kinda upset I missed out on the 100-400 II. Oh well, maybe one day that eBay seller will once again have gray market copies in stock for $1699.

They never had the 70-200 II in-stock during this sale. It sold out on Saturday afternoon, about 6 hours before the sale began.

I doubt they had many of the 100-400ii in stock.
Heckuva deal for anyone that got one. It's a great lens, and yes, a marked improvement over v1.
I caught the sale about 5 minutes after it started, bought a 70-200, and less than an hour later, it was out of stock.
