    Recently announced on Canon's website:

    New!
    Canon 5D now available in a kit with the EF 24-105L IS Lens

    B & H has this kit available...The 5D is roughly $2K, the 24-105L is roughly $1K, and the kit is roughly $2700, for a savings of about $300...nice deal for an L lens I would think!

    That is a pretty nice deal. If I didn't shoot Nikon, I'd probably spring for that.

    But you know what deals mean...something better soon...6D fo' sho'.

    hehe, yea, hopefully the 5D will go down in price then! But then of course I'll want to get the replacement...and if I don't I'll forever be reminded when I see it. Oh well, the 5D I think is definitely worth it.

    BTW, quite a different avatar photo...wow! Kind of Texas Chainsaw Massacre-ish type! lol...

    Not really that new of a deal. Been out for a while. Anyhoo, still a great deal. I have seen it as low as $2600. Maybe Canon clearing some shelf space for a certain upgrade?!?!?!?!?

    Hmm, maybe it was UK only thing? Do camera companies ever do that, give the UK, or any of Europe for that matter, a deal they don't give us Americans?

    My step dad bought that kit probably 8 months ago at a Circuit City. It's nice to have them packaged together.

    Camera companies have different divisions like USA and Europe. I know that they run almost completely different in their promotions and prices (talked to some pentax people who had inside access)

    its not uncommon to have deals that are exclusive to say one country or continent.
