$30-$50? Crap discounts! A real discount is 10-20%! Any dealer will give you that much of a price break to get your business – it’s dog-eat-dog out there.

You call this as price drops?

WHOA, I better run to my nearest camera store before these savings disappear forever. . .

Jesus. I thought these were serious price drops.

LOL, so much noise about 30-50 bucks savings. What is it? A joke? Come on Photography Bay…

Better down then up.
I admire Canon for that, it is not really easy in Japan the last months.

So absurd! Please take me off your mailing list if this all that you have to offer.

Is this a JOKE, if yes its a bad one.

Canon lenses are way too expensive for those of us with limited funds—we are after all in a recession, Not even professionals can afford these prices.

Why you guys bother to post this, waste your time and my time!

Those price drops if that is what you want to call them, is nothing but a flat out insult to the customer. Some customer appreciation by canon. Whoooopppppiiiii……..Big Deal.

You jokers … all they are doing are reporting the news. Photography Bay don’t set the prices.
What would you be saying if they didn’t report it? If you were about to purchase one of these lenses then the info is relevant.

Any advertised discounting should be at least 5% but preferably more. As far as Canon goes, they should offer customers who own a number of lenses better discounts. Show some customer loyalty.

Agreed crzzzr! Stop winging about recession. Recession does not only stop at your door! If you cannot afford it, work harder… or don’t buy it. Just because you NEED it but cannot AFFORD it does not mean Canon has to lower their prices just to satisfy your NEED.

If a price drops and no one buys or cares, is it really a price drop?

17 johnny June 10, 2011 at 9:58 am

Such a drop that when you pay the tax on it, its back to the same price if not more. When lenses cast as much a camera or more, there has to be something wrong.

Not enough for me to buy another lens. It must be some type of joke.
