The Canon 5D Mark II has dropped below $2300 at B&H, as well as Amazon, with a price drop and $100 instant rebate. The rebate expires on Nov. 23; however, I don’t know how long the additional $100 0ff will last. For reference, it’s generally about $2500.
The Canon 500mm f/4L IS II and 600mm f/4L IS II lenses were announced in February 2011, with availability initially set for May and June for the respective lenses. In May, the availability date for these lenses was pushed back to December 2011.
