I'm trying to figure out the best time to buy this lens.  In a thread a few months ago, people said to wait for the fall rebates in October.  Well, it's October now, and there's a $300 rebate, but the net price is still roughly unchanged at $2200.  It was under $2000 a year ago.  Is there any reason to believe that the price will fall further?

One year ago, in October 2011, it was $2400.  However, as the end of the FY year neared, Canon started dropping the price.  If you read their FY financial report, they admit they had a high inventory level.  Obviously, they dealt with it.

If they are in the same situation this year, expect low prices in December.  But not in October.
