Thanks to the new mail-in rebate on EOS 6D and 5D Mark III we now have two additional great street prices from Canon USA authorized dealers.
The EOS 6D with 24-105mm f/4L IS is $2039.99 after the $200 mail-in rebate (you pay $2239.99 before rebate).
A more impressive deal is a bundle of the EOS 6D with 24-70mm f/4L IS for $2199.99 after a $450 mail-in rebate ($200 rebate on the EOS 6D and a $250 rebate for purchasing the 24-70mm f/4L IS bundled with the 6D). This is a great price as it’s only $700 on top of our already low body-only street price for this lens.
In addition to our body-only 5D Mark III street price of $2699 after rebate, we have a price on the 5D Mark III + 24-105mm: $3299 after rebate. These have been very popular with the new rebate!
All prices are brand new from Canon USA authorized dealers, have full 1-year Canon USA warranties and include free standard shipping and do not collect tax to most states — please contact us for details, or read more about street prices, or read testimonials from other readers. Lens street prices will be back soon.
In the Canon world, many changes happened at midnight. Here is the summary of all the major Canon pricing changes:
- A new mail-in rebate on full-frame bodies.
- Permanent price drops on 26 Canon lenses.
- Now confirmed by a page at the Canon Direct Store. As of time of post they have a hilarious bug where everything currently has a price of $0.00. That’s right, free. Unfortunately everything is now out of stock. (Probably one of you readers!)
- The price drop also causes a refurbished price drop as well, as mentioned yesterday. Same price mistake bug on their site though, everything is free.
- Price drops have now happened at B&H and Adorama.
- The July mail-in rebates on lenses expired.
We have street prices on the 5D Mark III and 6D of $2699 and $1449 respectively. For the lenses that have had price drops, we will need a few days to figure out the new street prices, please stay tuned.
It may take a few hours for stores to show the new pricing.

This is exciting: we have just now heard that Canon is instituting a “permanent” price drop on 26 lenses tomorrow, Sunday, August 31st.
If you bought a lens that was recently on rebate, don’t worry, you already got the better deal — for most lenses, the recent post-rebate prices were better than the new prices. For a couple lenses (notably the 24-70 II and 70-200 II) the price drop ($200) is equal to the rebate — effectively making it permanent. The best deals are on super-telephotos that weren’t on rebate — a $700 to $1000 price drop! You can see the full list below.
As for street prices? For lenses not currently on rebate, we expect street prices to drop! We will need a few days to get more clarity on what level the street prices will fall to, so we will disable street prices on all affected lenses. Please stay tuned, street prices will be back next week!
Another likely benefit of the price drop would be a reduction in the refurbished price, as refurbished prices are usually pegged at 80% of the MAP price.
A reminder, there is also a new mail-in rebate on 5D Mark III and 6D starting tomorrow. For the list of price drops (including both old and new MAP) please read more.
Today only: the Canon Direct Store has the refurbished EOS SL1 + 18-55mm IS STM for only $394.99. This is an amazing price for this camera and lens; it goes for $599 new.
You see this price in-cart (look at the subtotal, an additional discount is applied).
Also, they have the refurbished EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS II for only $85 (see cart for discount). This is another great deal as the cheapest new from authorized dealers we’ve ever seen was $139.
Combine both items in cart to get an additional $20 off! $459.99, an incredible deal.
Also, thanks to the recent price drop there was a drop in the refurbished price for popular lenses:
These are the new regular refurbished prices — imagine what it’ll be at the next 15%-off refurb lens sale! All three are out of stock right now but set a notification if you’d like to catch this in-stock.
Authorized dealer BuyDig has the EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II USM open box for $5439.20. Use coupon code “CLOSEOUT20″.
Normally we are not a huge fan of open box items but this is a really good price, compare with a street price of $6699 and $7299 list at authorized dealers.
According to BuyDig it comes with a 3-year store warranty.
A few Friday deals! BigValueInc via eBay has the Canon EOS M with 22mm Kit for $249.99. This is a return of an eBay deal we saw a few weeks ago! These are likely import model. BigValueInc has a 99.0% feedback according to the CPW feedback score.
The Canon Direct Store started a mini-sale last night. The only two reasonable deals are the refurbished 600EX-RT for $414.99 and the T3 + 18-55mm IS for $226.99. But we’re also hearing that more refurb deals will be coming as part of their Labor Day Weekend sale, so please stay tuned and check back over the next couple days.
We’re really pleased to confirm a $200 mail-in rebate starting on Sunday for the EOS 5D Mark III and EOS 6D. The rebate period lasts for four weeks. We’ve lowered our street prices to $2699 and $1449 respectively (net price after $200 mail-in rebate).
You can contact us now via the street price form and we can help you get your order placed as soon as the rebate starts.
Also included is a rebate on the PIXMA PRO-100, but unfortunately it has been lowered in value. The rebate is now only $350 on a PIXMA PRO-100 printer (when bundled with an eligible camera and paper purchase). This is down from the $400 rebate, and likely makes these bundles no longer such a great deal.
There are also no standalone lens rebates, so sadly the current lens street prices will expire.
