Deal Alert: Canon 5D Mark II + 24-105mm f/4L Lens [Update: It's Gone]

5D Mark II on Amazon

I wouldn’t expect his deal to last too long, but Amazon has the 5D Mark II with a 24-105mm f/4L lens for $2749.

This is substantially lower that this kit normally runs (usually in the $3200 or higher range).  The lens alone goes for over $1000, which would put the value of the 5D Mark II body in the $1700 range.  Again, I don’t expect this to last long.

[Update: And it's gone. Hope you got one...]
