Adorama has the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II lens for $1699 (reg. $2299) after instant discounts and mail-in rebate. The price drops to $1899 when you get to checkout and then there is an additional $200 mail-in rebate from Canon available, which brings the final net price down to $1699. This is the cheapest I have ever seen this lens. Don’t expect it to last long. Adorama is also offering 2% rewards on this lens. Check it out here at Adorama.
