Things might not be that static after all...

Please post a link to the "heavy Canon rebates" The only active
promotions currently available from Canon appear to be for a couple
of camcorders .

That's the second round of cashbacks on the 40D. The first 40D cashback started about 5 weeks after the 40D was announced.

Ritz (the gold standard for "List Price" sales) still has the 40D at
$1300 which is what it has been for quite a while. Yes you can get
it $200 cheaper just about anywhere else, but this has been pretty
consistant for the last few months as well. I can't see any evidence
of any "dumping", however, it is not uncommon for a manufacturer to
reduce prices over time. I seem to remember that the 40D opened at
$1400 so it looks like it has droped by $100.

Best UK price on a 40D is around £500 with cashback. That's a huge drop on the announcement price in around 8 months.
