Nope! Rebate starts TODAY!!! It's official: http://www.usa.canon.com/app/pdf/Pro...Form_Oct06.pdf

Combine this w/ the current Dell sale on the 5D and you've got one hot deal!

I could be wrong, but I think a Canon rep told me at a show that Canon will give you the rebate if you bought a camera within 30 days before a rebate offer. I would contact them.

Dell isn't the best deal...They start out at 3200 and take 330 off...
buydig.com and beachcamera.com and B&H start out with ~2800.00...Take Canons 300 off of that and you have a good deal...2249 is what I paid for my first digital, the D30....

That's because you missed the sale...
Dell had the 5D at 20% off (and not 10%) up until yesterday afternoon :blah:
i.e. a whopping -$659.99 discount before rebate which was better than B&H!!!

Its funny, I hardly ever look at dell when I compair the prices...They are usually among the highest...In the past I have gone with B&H, Beachcamera, and Ritz...I guess I better wake up and smell the coffee, huh...

Check this one out....

http://www.bestpricecameras.com/prod...?prodid=308518

Take canons 300 from their 1949.00 and you have the deal of the century...
I wonder how much crap you would have to put up with to get the camera...
:shock:

IMO it's a sign of things to come...

The 5D will probably moved down in price permanently after the holiday as the rebate end (slow season and probably to make room for a new model). Come to think of it the other full-frame: the 1Ds MrkII hasn't been updated to an 'N' yet either...

-> May be a 6D with the sensor from the 1Ds MrkII... and the 1Ds move up to a MrkIII - One can always dream... :-)
