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!

How do you get an EPP number, what does it stand for.

Employee Purchase Program. I do consulting a state government and qualify under that. My wife is a teacher so I've ordered just from doing the drop down before and it was never verified (and didn't ask for the EPP number).

Can you possibly elaborate on how you got the price of $1048? I went to dell.com/epp, added the item to cart. Item comes up as $1349.99 with a $135 discount, subtotal $1214.99. Then it takes the 7% off which brings it down to $1129.94. So I haven't done the credit app for the extra 4% off, but even that extra 4% should only lower the price another, what, 45 dollars or so?

Ok you all suck :) You all just cost me $1550. Saw this posting and checked out the 70-200. Dell's price with the EPP disocunt was $150 less than B&H. So I pulled out the credit card and bought it. I guess I'll tell the wife I'm trying to help the economy. :D

How do you get that $135 (10%) off?

I think the 10% off ended Wed or Thursday. I ordered my 70-200 on Wednesday. Dell's website said it was back-ordered. I got it yesterday (Friday).
