I'm not saying you need this lens, but right now there just happens to be a very good (very very good) deal on the latest generation Canon 24-70mm F/2.8L II. If you've been eyeballing this lens, this may be the lowest it's been since it's announcement.
Here's the breakdown. The MSRP on this lens sits at $2300 dollars (too much for me), but right now if you drop it in your cart the price falls to $1999. Subtract another $200 with the current MIR (mail-in-rebate), and the FINAL PRICE JUST $1799 via B&H (found here)

Canon 7D Sale and Bundle Rebates Discounts
You might have caught this as it started yesterday. Canon's offering instant rebates on a variety of Lenses (and flashes), but if you go direct to Canon's website there's tax and hefty shipping fees involved. You can find the same rebate information over at B&H and for some this means saving big on sales tax. Nothing overly exciting, and it extends throughout September 3rd. Current Canon Lens and Flash rebate information can be found following the link (click here).
