    Now is a really, really good time to get a 20D...

    I've been out of the groove for a bit long, but I've noticed that Canon has stuck to their word and introduced rebates on the 15th, the same day as always. How can I resist getting a 20D for $940 with no tax, no shipping? Now's I have no excuse for not getting one. Plus I can pick up my 50mm f/1.4 and something else and get triple rebates off of those two.

    I can't think of a better time to get a 20D than now. A Rebel XT isn't too shabby either as you can pick one up for $500 something after these rebates.

    $1249 (20D street price) - $300 (triple rebate) = $949
    $749 (350D street price) - $225 (triple rebate) = $524

    To qualify for the triple rebate, you do need to buy 2 accessories/lenses with your camera, but that shouldn't be too big a problem. Pick up a prime and a zoom (you get triple rebates off those too!), and you're set!

    Buy 2 lenses canon lenses and the rebel xt to get it for 500.
    The lenses and camera will probably set you back 2500.

    Canon rebates

    I can't find an EOS-20D for anywhere close to $1050, btw. The rebate's $100. Are you looking at authorised dealers or grey market?

    I need new ways to interpret things. Photography gives me new interpretations.

    As far as I know, Canon's triple rebates work like so:
    You buy one item, you get the basic rebate; you buy two, you get twice the rebate on both the items; you buy three or more items and you get the triple rebate on all of them.
    So to get the 20D for $940, you'd buy it for $1240 plus two lenses (or other triple-rebate-eligible items); the combined cost would be pretty huge but you'd get it for much less than you could've otherwise.

    Buy it at Buydig for $1250, buy 2 lenses and you get $300 off the camera and AT LEAST $45 off each lens and probably more. I can buy a 20D + 50mm f/1.4 + 70-200 f/4 L for a mere $1700 as opposed to $2200 before. It's a scary thought that if you bought the 20D in a place like Best Buy, you'd only get the 20D for that price.
