I was told Canon is going to have a new list of rebates for February and March. The 24-70 f2.8 II they are giving a $200 rebate and lowering the price $100. I don't know all the other details but I believe it starts tomorrow February 17. I hope this is true because as soon as it is official, I'm going to order mine. Has anyone else heard this?

Obviously, Canon lenses aren't flying off the shelves at their MAP pricing. Good for Canon customers but what would be even better is to lower the MAP and reduce the number of rebate programs and basically, quit trying to sell product for more than its are worth to their customers. I'd love to see this In-Cart pricing at the retailer level go away too. This goes for the 5D3 as well.

rebates are canon's way of compensating for currency changes throughout the year.

I doubt canon had issues with lenses being sold - they sell more than anyone.
