Jonas writes in and shares a link to a discounted 5D Mark III through an organized Group Buy via eBay. To be honest, I wasn't aware that these Group Buy Deals even existed, mainly because it's only available in AU.
This is not available for USA residents (and other countries), but it's worth taking a look if you qualify as there seems to be a number of these types of deals listed. Check out a Canon 5D Mark III posted up recently as part of the GroupBuy deal via ebay.com.au (Click Here).
Do you think with all the new gear Canon is announcing, they might be trying to offload some of their existing models that have been around for some time? Who knows, but the Canon Rebates are back, and they double if you bundle them with a select camera body. More information on the dedicated Rebates page (click here).
Several people jumped on the Canon 7D deal and it sold out fast. Others weren't so lucky. I woke up today, to see that it is once again being offered via the Daily Deal. I know a bunch of people were able to take advantage of this deal, including some of my close friends, so if you received one from the last round feel free to leave some comments to the skeptics. Listed as Brand New (not refurbished). Is this grey market stuff? Nope, the auction (like the last one) shows that it includes the US Warranty registration card. Check it following the link (here).
Thanks to Aaron for sharing this unique link. A regular search over at B&H website for the Canon 70-200mm F/2.8 IS II lens will return with a $300 dollar discount. By using this secret little link (click here), you'll find a listing which saves you an extra $100 dollars off on top of the $300 dollar discount. Great deal on this popular lens, instant discount (no mail-in rebates), and you don't need to bundle with a Camera purchase. This is an exclusive deal with B&H and only lasts for a few days. [Thanks Aaron]
I'm not much of a printer guy, but here's a couple of instant rebate deals that can knock a few Benjamins off a Canon DSLR body purchase which includes stuff like T2i, T3i, 60D, etc. You'll find the qualifying and mail in rebate information following the links.

Just a reminder that if you or anyone you know is planning on grabbing a new Canon DSLR, there's some rebate incentives going on. This rebate isn't something to go out of your way, but if you're looking to dive in to a DSLR purchase for the first time, it might save you a few bucks. From the Canon Rebate information, the deal comes in if you grab a flash or lens combination with a new DSLR body purchase. Both items must appear on the same receipt, purchased in the same day to qualify. Canon has listed all their top DSLR bodies for this rebate, incuding the new Canon 60D. Most of the lenses to qualify for this rebate are quite expensive, but if someone asked me which combo deal might be worth it, i'd probably suggest grabbing a Canon T2i or 60D + the Canon EF-S 17-55 F/2.8 IS USM. There's a list of items that state Instant Rebates, so this doesn't look like a 'Mail in Rebate' deal. More information can be found on some special links displayed over at the B&H website: List of items that qualify for Canon Rebate deal
