The deal is: Buy a select Canon EOS DSLR (7D, 60D, T3i, T2i or T3) and a Canon PIXMA PRO9000 Mark II Printer or Canon PIXMA PRO9500 Mark II Printer and receive huge rebates - $500 and $600 respectively ($100 instant, balance on American Express cards). These rebates are on top of any current EOS DSLR rebates.
 
Alternatively: Buy a select Canon Lens (the inlcuded lens list is huge) and a Canon PIXMA PRO9500 Mark II Printer and also receive huge rebates - $600 respectively (combination of instant rebates and American Express card mail in rebates). The lens rebates are scheduled to end 7/31/2011 - act fast on this one.
 
You are basically getting paid $50 for adding the PRO9000 to your EOS DSLR order and only paying $119.95 for the higher end PRO9500.
 
These are high quality photo printers (I'm using the Pro9500 Mark I). If you don't need the printer, sell it to make your new EOS body an excellent deal.
 
If you need just a printer, the instant and mail-in rebates combine to total $300 and $400 for just the printers alone.

Canon made some non-Camera announcements yesterday. I'll send you directly to the Canon USA press releases for the details:
 
Canon U.S.A. Enhances Creativity With New PIXMA Printers
Canon U.S.A. Announces New Desktop Accessories For Today's Business Professionals
Canon U.S.A. Expands imageCLASS Laser Multifunction And Printer Lineup With Seven New Products
Canon U.S.A. Commemorates The 20th Anniversary Of Its Jamesburg Location
 
I have a current model Canon X Mark I Premium Black Desktop Calculator - it looks great on my black back-painted glass desktop. The new models would replace my wireless keypad as well. Very nice.
 
Sorry for being a day late on these announcements. I arrived home at 1:00 AM this morning after three days on the road. I'm behind on email replies as well - please be patient - I'll be responding soon.
