The up-to-$400.00-per-lens Canon USA Spring 2012 EOS DSLR Camera, Lens and Flash Rebate Program is scheduled to end on Sat, Jun 2, 2012 - and the best time to buy a Canon lens or flash is usually during a rebate program.
 
The base lens and flash rebate amounts are very nice - and are doubled with the purchase of a qualifying DSLR (EOS 60D, 7D, 5D Mark II - or the new 5D Mark III). The 60D and 7D rebates are added on top of the combo rebates. Excellent lens models are included - and even the new Speedlite 600EX-RT is included.

From PocketWizard:
 
Special 2012 Summer Olympics MultiMAX Upgrade
 
Special 2012 London Summer Olympics Upgrade Offer for Custom ID owners with older MultiMAX radios
 
So. Burlington, VT - LPA Design, manufacturer of PocketWizard Photo Accessories, is announcing a special MULTIMAX UPGRADE offer exclusively to Custom ID owners.
 
Special London Olympics Offer:
 
If you own an older PocketWizard radio with a Custom ID in it, you should take advantage of this special offer to upgrade to the latest MultiMAX. A modern MultiMAX has the following benefits for the Olympics:

  • A USB port for firmware upgrades – we are working on a new firmware to help in multi-user Olympic environments
  • The ability to move your Custom ID to a different frequency. Older radios had the Custom ID pinned to one frequency - if the frequency was crowded you might miss triggers. The latest MultiMAX allows you to move among the available frequencies in your MultiMAX to move away from interference.
  • An ACC port for controlling the “half press” of your remote camera
  • And more!

From now until July 31st, you can upgrade your older Custom ID radio to a modern MultiMAX for $195. Just send your Custom ID radio to LPA Design and we will take care of the rest.
 
How do you know if you have an older MultiMAX? Hold down “A” on power-up – if your MultiMAX displays version 6.xx or earlier, you could benefit from an upgrade!
 
This offer is only available for MultiMAX or MAX radios with Custom IDs already installed. It is not for Plus, Plus II, Plus III, etc. This offer is only available directly from LPA Design.
