Canon has released a new DSLR camera and lens rebate program with rebate amounts ranging from $15.00 to $1,000.00 with $50.00 - $130.00 being more typical amounts. The new feature to this rebate program is the rebate amount being doubled with the purchase of a 5D Mark II. Also welcome in this round is the Canon EOS 7D
These are instant rebates available to anyone in the world buying through a Canon USA authorized dealer (B&H Photo
). They are in effect from Mar 7, 2010 (Sunday) through Apr 3, 2010. This is an unusual time of the year for a significant Canon rebate program - it is likely in response to Nikon's current rebate program.
If you are buying a 7D or 5D Mark II, definitely pick up a Canon PIXMA PRO 9000 printer at the same time - there is a $400 rebate on the combo. Just sell the printer if you don't need/want it.
Here is the list of DSLRs, lenses and flashes included in the program along with their respective rebate amounts:
Looks like it is a good time to buy a Canon EOS 5D Mark II
