Everyone knows that Rebates come and go. Right now however many companies have substantial rebates on some of their top gear. The bad news is apparently a lot of these rebates are coming to an end on April 1st (no joke here). We recently got a phone call from the guys at BH Photo, and I've combined all the major deals into one post. If you are in need of some new lenses, cameras, or computer storage, be sure to check out the full post.
Canon:Double Instant Savings Campaign. If you are looking to get a new lens and a new body then now is the time to purchase them together. The good news is you can save a couple hundred dollars on many of the lenses. The bad news is it's only valid on Canon 60D, Canon 7D, and Canon 5D Mark II. If you really need that lens maybe you can pawn off the camera on ebay.
If you are trying to hunt down the new Canon 5D Mark III DSLR, BHphoto has a couple hundred kits in stock right now which I was told will sell out in a few days. I know this camera is in crazy demand right now but I'm not as familiar with Canon's lens lineup. If the high ISO is as good as they say then maybe this 24-105 F4 L lens would be a good overall lens. Who knows?
Also perhaps the most talked about digital SLR in history, the Nikon D800, is starting to ship now too. I've been told this might be one of Nikon's largest releases to date so even if you think you might want one a few months down the road you might want to go ahead and get one on preorder. Nikon Rumors is hinting at possible Nikon price hikes in the very near future...other markets have already been hit hard lately.
