100-400 price

It's listed at $1699 on Amazon, no indication that this is a sale.  B and H has the same price but lists the regular price at $1899.  Is $1699 the new "regular" price?  Is this as cheap as the prior sale prices?

I'm not terribly interested in the TC, but I've heard that it goes on sale as a set sometimes--what has the price been for that pair?  (either TC).

Thanks!

Re: 100-400 price

I think the biggest rebate from a few months ago was $500 off for a net price of $1400 (which is still cheaper than the current price) for the lens alone.

The most recent rebates have not included any deals on the TC, I don’t think. I believe prior sales have been something like including the TC for +$100 to the base price of the lens.

(I picked up the lens during the $500 off rebate, but I already scrubbed whether it was $1400 or $1500 from my memory; and I bought it locally instead of online this time)

Re: 100-400 price

Here's the price history for just the lens

I'm not sure I've seen them officially bundled with a sale price. If they were it was usually an adorama/bh just offering the TC as an addon and listing it as its own product.

Get it used for a reasonable price. I think I paid $1200 for mine and it was in excellent condition.

You might also rethink the TC, if it's affordable.  Not sure exactly what you'll be out shooting, but for wildlife, I've found 400mm (even on a crop body) to often still be too short.  This is particularly true for birds, but also for other wildlife.  That additional 40% of reach comes in handy a lot, and I very often find myself using the TC with the lens (and it's always in my kit ready to be attached when needed).  The best part is the fact that the impact on IQ is really minimal.

Food for thought... (and no, I don't get a commission for TC sales).
