Amazon currently has it at $1495.30 USD shipped (gold box I think). Is that a good price? It's so tempting when B&H has it for about $100 more :confused::eek:

thats a good price. the lowest I've seen that lens is $1474 @ BH. Thats when they had canon's instant rebate and the convention discount. Now I'm kicking myself for not buying at that price.

I think Amazon already did the instant rebate price but didn't list it. Or I could be wrong, I've never used a Canon instant rebate before, so I don't know how it works. But I did pull the trigger and added $5 for 3-5 day shipping :)

I was checking Amazon's status today because I was a bit worried the purchase wouldn't go through. It was still in my gold box this morning, but a few hours later, they removed it, and it's no longer in stock at Amazon! Thankfully, as of an hour ago it has been shipped :D

Good price. If you need it and have the money today. Go for it! But if you don't have the money, don't spend it when you don't have it.
