    So, how much is a 40d body going to be after these rebates? I'm thinking I want to upgrade from my 400d, it's just too damn small in my huge hands.

    a 40D, 24-70 and a 70-200 2.8L would make that gear list even nicer! ;)

    So they're not wacky double or triple rebates, just the flat amount? I guess just flat.


    Sadly, there's no rebate on anything I need.

    So how does this work? Will retailers automatically drop their prices on these items to reflect the rebate? e.g. Amazon dropping their price from $1140 to $940?

    I wants me the 70-200. Mostly just for the fact I'm going to the Red Bull air race here this summer and my kit lens will be totally worthless. In fact the kit lens is mostly worthless anyways, daddy needs to upgrade.

    I went to the one in San Diego and I wont be going back :hsd:

    I had my 70-200 2.8 and 1.4X on it and it still wasn't long enough. I'd rent a 300/400 2.8 and see what you could do. :dunno:

    How come, did it suck? :hs:

    I rented a 100-400 for the Grand Prix race last year and it was awesome, very versatile since you were rarely shooting where a < 50mm lens would be needed.

    It was way too crowded, and I needed better access to get the shots I wanted. I wanted some more focal length as well. :hs:

    Try it out though. It's pretty cool to watch once.

    :mamoru:

    I'll probably go real early and camp out in a prime spot since the riverfront is within walking distance from my apartment.

    I'm glad you said it's cool, I was worried it was gonna be a few hours of something totally gay. :o
