Hi folks,

Thanks to Northlight Images for a heads-up that Canon is to introduce a new cashback scheme in Europe from March 1st to 30th June 2008. The numbers are, according to this PDF document:
    400D ----------------------------------- €60
    40D ------------------------------------ €150
    5D ------------------------------------- €200
    EF-S 10-22mm f3.5-4.5 USM ------- €50
    EF-S 17-85mm f4-5.6 IS USM ------ €50
    EF 16-35mm f2.8L USM mkII ------- €100
    EF 17-40mm f4L USM --------------- €50
    EF 24-70mm f2.8L USM ------------- €70
    EF 24-105mm f4L IS USM ----------- €60
    EF 50mm f1.2L ----------------------- €70
    EF 70-200mm f2.8L IS USM --------- €100
    EF 70-200mm f4L IS USM ----------- €60
    EF 70-200mm f2.8L USM ------------ €70
    EF 70-200mm f4L USM -------------- €50
    EF 70-300mm f4-5.6 IS USM -------- €50
    EF 100mm f2.8 Macro USM --------- €50
    EF 100-400mm f4.5-5.6L IS USM --- €100
    580EX II Flash ------------------------ €50
    MR14EX Macro Ring Lite ------------- €30
If similar rates apply here in the UK that means a 5D will be only £50 or so north of £1000 if you shop around. :shock:

Bob.

Too right. Never look over your shoulder (unless it's to check and see if there's a shot you've missed). Congratulations on the new camera. 8)

Bob.

P.S. And £919 is the cheapest price I can see in the UK today and you've saved yourself £6.95 P&P 8) . Good deal. :D

The UK cashback values have now been leaked by Park Cameras so I'll lock this thread and ask that the conversation be continued here.

Bob.
