Canon USA has announced their Spring 2011 Lens Rebates.
 
While Canon USA typically offers a significant DSLR, lens and flash rebate program each spring, this one is not likely to impress you - only three low end lenses are included. Canon USA has not commented on the reason for the small rebate program, but I'm certain that the lack of inventory resulting from the disaster in Japan is the reason. I personally was not expecting any lens rebates to be offered this spring.
 
One thing we do know is that these three lenses have significant availability - the instant rebate amounts are significant relative to the price of the lens. These rebates are in effect from May 15 through June 18, 2011.
 
Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM Lens - $150.00
Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS Lens - $100.00
Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III Lens - $50.00
 
If one of these three lenses is on your to-buy list, now is the time to get it. Links are to B&H.

Wonder no longer - Canon USA has issued a press release regarding this project:
 
Canon U.S.A. Commemorates The Setting Of The Last Segment Of Steel For Its New Canon Americas Headquarters
 
LAKE SUCCESS, May 12, 2011 – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging, celebrated the setting of the last segment of steel for its new headquarters during a "topping off" ceremony today in Melville, N.Y. Joe Adachi, president and CEO, Canon U.S.A, and Seymour Liebman, executive vice president, chief administrative officer and general counsel, Canon U.S.A., were joined by state and local officials to commemorate this milestone in the development of Canon's new facility which will serve as headquarters for North and South America.
 
"Today we are celebrating yet another milestone towards completion of the new Canon Americas Headquarters," said Joe Adachi, president and CEO, Canon U.S.A. "I look forward to the day when we open the doors to One Canon Park and provide our employees a world-class facility in which to grow and succeed."
 
Canon USA's New Headquarters
 
Above, Joe Adachi, president and CEO, Canon U.S.A., and Seymour Liebman, executive vice president, chief administrative officer and general counsel, Canon U.S.A., raise the commemorative steel beam for the Canon Americas new headquarters in Melville, N.Y.
 
"It has been an exciting experience to watch our new headquarters being built from the ground up and we are grateful for the support we have received from various government officials and community leaders," Seymour Liebman, executive vice president, chief administrative officer and general counsel, Canon U.S.A.
 
Just in case you wanted to know, the Canon-supplied image above was shot with a Canon EOS 5D Mark II and a Canon EF 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6L IS USM Lens at 50mm, f/11, 1/100 and ISO 100.
