The Canon Store has the refurbished Canon EOS 1D Mark IV in stock - only $3,999.20!
The other hard to find deal is the refurbished Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS II USM Lens - only $1,999.20.
Act right away if you want either - I expect both of these items to go OOS very fast.

From Think Tank Photo:
Three Travel-Specific Backpacks Coming Soon!
Think Tank Photo Travel-Specific Backpacks
In May, we will release the Airport™ series, a new line of travel-specific, high-capacity camera backpacks designed with maneuvering through airports quickly in mind. The three backpacks – the Airport Accelerator, Airport Commuter, and Airport Essentials -- integrate quick access pockets for both laptops and iPad, a top pocket for boarding passes, and three robust handles to ensure easy placement and retrieval from overhead bins.
The Airport™ series makes life easier for the traveling photographer. All meet international carry on size requirements. The two smaller bags, the Airport Commuter and the Airport Essentials, are designed to fit under-seat in regional commuter planes.
Their light, adjustable, contoured harness provides comfort along with lumbar support. The air mesh paneling keeps backs cool. The height-adjustable sternum strap allows for the perfect fit. A removable waist belt, side water bottle pocket, tripod/ monopod mounting system and seam sealed rain cover extend their versatility.
Adding even more functionality, these backpacks can be used with Think Tank’s Pro Speed Belts for additional support and capacity by adding component pouches and cases from the company’s Modular Rotation Component System.
The three sizes allow photographers to select the best fit for their needs.

Once again, Canon has a PIXMA Pro Mark II Inkjet Printer and DSLR Combo Rebate in effect.
Buy an EOS T2i, T3, T3i, 60D, 7D or 5D Mark II and the PIXMA PRO9000 II or PRO9500 II printer and receive a $400.00 or $500.00 Amex reward card - covering most of the cost of the printer.
This is a great deal to add onto the current Canon lens rebates.
Get the Canon PIXMA Pro9000 Mark II Inkjet Printer at: B&H, or Adorama.
B&H now has the Western Digital My Passport 2TB USB 3.0 External Hard Drives in stock ($199.99 shipped).
I have upgraded to these new drives. They are just slightly thicker than the 1TB drives I had been using, but with 2x the capacity, I can easily overlook this minor downside. What an amazing amount of capacity in a drive that easily fits in a pocket.

During the month of May, order a Think Tank Photo Airport Roller from Think Tank Photo and receive a free Artificial Intelligence Laptop Sleeve, a $59.00 value.
The Airport Roller Series are among TTP's best sellers and include:
Airport Security V2.0, Airport International V2.0, Airport Airstream, Airport TakeOff
There is a reason why these cases are best sellers. They are very well designed and very well built. Think Tank Photo sent me an Airport Security V2.0 for my recent Florida trip. I carried a Canon EF 800mm f/5.6L IS USM Lens, Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II USM Lens, Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM Lens, Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III and many other accessories in it.
Think Tank Photo Airport Security V 2.0
I very highly recommend the Airport Security V2.0. The other rollers are equally well designed and built.
