Now, a guaranteed Canon Lens Rebate! Canon has today introduced a new "Instant Savings Rebate" program good for up to $100 off Canon lenses purchased between May 17th, 2007 and July 16th, 2007. I have updated the site database to show which Canon EF Zoom Lenses and Canon EF Fixed Focal Length Lenses are included in the program, and it appears the retailers have updated their sites to issue the instant rebates, so happy shopping!

The actual Canon Instant Savings Rebate Form can be downloaded, but it is a large 2.3 MB .PDF file that does not need to be filled out or sent in.

Tamron has introduced their Summer 2007 Rebate Program. Many of the rebate amounts are insignificant, but a couple are quite attractive. I've participated in only one Tamron rebate to date - it was fulfilled in just two or three weeks. Others have indicated similar results with Tamron rebates. And no, I have not heard anything about a Canon Summer 2007 Rebate program. Are we hearing the winds of change?

Canon TS-E 45mm f/2.8 Tilt Shift Lens Review

I've owned three copies of this lens. Unlike my general experience with multiple copies of other properly-focusing Canon lens models, these three differed somewhat in sharpness. More specifically, my first copy was sharper. The ISO chart sample crops are from the second copy.

Hot Deal! There is no longer an excuse to not have enough memory. Adorama has the SanDisk Extreme III 16GB CompactFlash Card on sale for $104.95 after rebate (I paid $250 for this card 3 weeks ago - and that was a good deal then). Don't need that much space? The others are on sale also. Here is the list of capacities and prices:

SanDisk 1GB Extreme III CompactFlash Card - $17.95 after rebate
SanDisk 2GB Extreme III CompactFlash Card - $24.95 after rebate
SanDisk 4GB Extreme III CompactFlash Card - $34.95 after rebate
SanDisk 8GB Extreme III CompactFlash Card - $59.95 after rebate
SanDisk 16GB Extreme III CompactFlash Card - $104.95 after rebate

SanDisk 2GB Extreme IV CompactFlash Card - $34.95 after rebate
SanDisk 4GB Extreme IV CompactFlash Card - $59.95 after rebate
SanDisk 8GB Extreme IV CompactFlash Card - $99.95 after rebate

At the risk of sounding like a broken record (remember those?), I'm letting you know once again that Adorama has a huge list of "Refurbished By Canon" Lenses and Cameras in stock. 64 of them at my last count. You get a like-new item for a very good price. The interest in these items has been very high (as has been the new owner satisfaction), so I'll keep letting you know when they are available. Link is to the available items at Adorama.
