FYI, Oly instant rebates are on (at least on the Adorama and BH websites)
At least 3 Oly lenses (12-60, 50 macro, 70-300) have instant rebates.
Interestingly (and this might be a typo) at Adorama, if you buy the 70-300 by itself, the price is $299 discounted ($399 with $100 instant rebate). BUT, the Adorama kit for the 70-300 (which comes with a Tiffen UV filter and lens cleaner) is priced at $267! HOWEVER, and possibly better if you don't need a filter, at BH, the lens itself with the $100 rebate is $254.
Also, with the 50 macro, the instant rebate is $50 (for a final price of $449 for the lens). But if you buy the Adorama kit for the 50 macro, the price is $405!!
At BH, with the instant rebate of $100, the 12-60 is $786. For some reason, Adorama still has the 12-60 regularly priced at $999. So with the instant rebate, it is still a whopping $899!
I already have the 50 macro and the 70-300. But I am so tempted to grab a 12-60. But I already have the 14-54 ... what shall I do?
Remember, if you do buy, go through Cameralabs' links to the site!
