It is that time of the year again! Canon and Nikon both have some awesome sales going on at B&H right now. There are a TON of different lens choices and bodies available for instant savings and mail in rebates. I purchased my Canon 70-200 f/2.8L IS II in December during one of the last times this happened, and I saved $300. If you are someone who waits for the perfect deals to come out, now is your time to jump up and break out the credit card.
With up to $450 in savings on bodies and $300 in savings on lenses from Canon, there is no better time to try and get a new product. Nikon is also showing savings of up to $480 on a new body and lens combination as well. Overall, if you play your cards right, you can get a NEW lens and body and save yourself $400+ which can then be used to pay off a few extra gas fill ups, or you know, buy the new Fstoppers: Peter Hurley Illuminating the Face DVD which is getting ready to release to the public.
During sales like this, I always try to take advantage of them by buying a new lens for my bag. Like mentioned earlier, last time I got my 70-200 f/2.8L IS II and used my savings to purchase some filters to use with it. This time around, Canon is running even more lenes on sale which is AWESOME. Take a look at what they have to offer and if you see that lens you've been contemplating trying to get, now is that time to just click buy. The instant savings only last until 5/24/14 and the mail-in rebates expire on 7/5/14.
