You probably have already been inundated with Black Friday and Cyber Monday sale catalogs and emails, and many more are coming. While bargains do show up in these sales (and I'll probably share some of my favorites with you), I usually find that there is far more hype than substance
much of the time. Be sure to know what the regular online price is before getting too excited about an advertised sale.
And with that said, the best time to buy Canon and Nikon gear is usually when a rebate is available - especially an instant rebate. While that makes now the right time to buy many Canon and Nikon cameras and lenses (especially if on the large list of current Canon lens rebates
), many of the "sales" you see for Canon and Nikon gear will be simply be using an instant rebate to get the sale price. And this means that that you don't have to get in line at 4:00 AM - and that your only pressure to make a decision should be to do so before the rebate expires.
If you buy one of the Canon DSLRs included in the Canon DSLR-plus-printer rebate, definitely pick up the PIXMA PRO9000 Mark II Printer for the $50.00 net cost. If for no other reason, get it because the printer comes with 8 full ink cartridges worth nearly $100.
