Today is the first day of a new rebate period, and we’ve seen some changes in the pricing landscape. First and foremost, the printer bundle mail-in rebate has now expired. Second, the 1-year free Adobe Creative Cloud promotion also appears to have expired.
Canon started a new instant rebate on four lenses:
Canon also renewed the popular instant rebates on lenses. This new rebate period ends on October 31st, and we don’t expect any price changes before then.
The Canon Direct Store restocked some very popular lenses, including the EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM II for $1679.20. Check out the refurbished stock tracker for the full list of refurbished items in-stock.
All items come with free shipping and 1-year Canon USA warranty. There is also a Canon eCash promotion where when you spend over $500, you get a $50 credit for a future purchase.
Today’s B&H DealZone (one-day deal) is the LEE Filters Starter 2-Filter Set for $149.00. This is a $111 savings from a regular price of $260.00. Note that B&H ordering closes at 6:30 PM on Friday.
We’ve mentioned LEE Filters before and we think it’s one of the highest quality and most reliable filter systems out there. This kit is a great way to get started; it gets you the filter holder, two ND grad filters, and various accessories. Be prepared, however, to also purchase adapter rings (sold separately) as well as popular ungraduated NDs such as the LEE Big Stopper.
The extremely popular printer bundle deals are set to expire on October 3rd. The $350 bundle mail-in rebate ends October 3rd, as well as the free 1-year subscription to Adobe Creative Cloud Photography Plan with purchase of a 5D Mark III, 6D, or 7D Mark II.
Even though both B&H and Adorama remain closed and unable to ship until October 7th, their online checkout is open and you can purchase the bundles today or tomorrow. As long as your purchase date (not your ship date) is before October 3rd, you are still eligible for the mail-in rebate. You have until November 3rd to mail in the UPCs plus the form.
EOS 5D Mark III
EOS 7D Mark II
Hot eBay deal: Get It Digital via eBay has the Canon EOS 5D Mark III for $1899.00, and the Canon EOS 5D Mark III with EF 24-105L IS Kit for $2499.00. These are the lowest prices we’ve seen yet for the 5D Mark III in body-only or kit form!
Get It Digital via eBay is an unauthorized dealer, so this item is likely grey market. As usual, a Canon USA warranty is not guaranteed, but is typically honored by Canon USA anyway. The store provides a 1-year store warranty. Please note the store does try to upsell you to a “USA model”, please stay firm and insist they process your order at the original price.
This is the first unauthorized dealer price drop on the 5D Mark III since March of this year; until this drop the import body price has been pegged at $1999.

This is the lowest price we’ve seen yet for this popular Speedlite from an authorized Canon dealer.
