I picked up the Canon 24-70 for $1048 before taxes with free shipping.
Stacked with the EPP discount (dell.com/epp) which gives you another 7% off. If you don't have an EPP number, you can do the dropdown and select a market segment close to your demographic. I do have an EPP number, but forgot it once and have ordered from home in a market segment I'd fall under and there was no verification. If you have or apply for a Dell preferred credit account, you get another 4% off.
I ordered it yesterday and got it today, with standard 3-5 day shipping!
