B&H Photo are running another great deal on the fabulous Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM Lens, after the B&H online $300 discount and then a Canon $300 mail-in rebate the final price is $1899 with free shipping (US Only) along with 4% Rewards.
B&H ran a similar deal at the same time last year and I know many of the readers of this site were lucky enough to pickup this lens before the deal ended, and of a few that missed the boat and have been waiting for something similar to come up again. Well now is your chance and what’s better the deal is sweeter this year at a cheaper price, free shipping and the 4% rewards .
For international buyers unfortunately no free shipping but B&H are one of very few US based camera retailers that ship overseas and their shipping rates a quite reasonable, based in Sydney and having purchased on many occasions from B&H I can testify to this.
Finally don’t be shocked to see or think the deal is finished when you see the full price of $2499 on the product listing page, at the checkout page you will see the B&H discount taking the price down to $2199 (as below), with your purchase you will receive an additional Canon Mail in Rebate for an additional $300.
A reminder of some of the features of the Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM Lens that make it one of the most popular professional lenses in the Canon line-up.
This lens has a minimum focusing distance of 3.9′ (1.2 m) at all zoom settings so you can shoot close to your subject even in smaller spaces. Like all Canon L-series lenses, this telephoto zoom is dust and moisture resistant and designed to keep on going even in the most challenging of environments.
- Fluorite & ultra-low dispersion lens elements reduce aberrations and contribute to high resolution, high-contrast imaging.
- Two-mode Image Stabilization can correct for all types of camera shake. Mode 1 corrects for still images and Mode 2 for the extraneous up and down movement created when panning with a moving subject.
- An ultrasonic autofocus motor provides fast, smooth and silent autofocus.
- Manual focus override enables precise manual focus even when in autofocus mode.
- A focus range limiter lets you set the range of focus distance which enables shorter focusing times. The two ranges are 3.9′ to infinity and 8.2′ to infinity.
- A truly round aperture hole results in more pleasing out-of-focus areas.
- Tight seal structure ensures excellent dust-proof and moisture-proof performance.
- Removable, rotatable tripod collar is included.
