The lens is back in stock! The 15% off is gone but you can can actually make this sweeter by going through the loyalty program giving you 20% off. Only draw is you need an old canon (working or non) camera, and be willing to buy a refurbished current camera.
I pulled the trigger on the T3i w/ 18-55mm and the 70-200mm IS USM II. Will resell the T3i on CL or something and keep the lens. Good luck! If you are looking for a non-working canon, check your local thrift store. I got a couple at my goodwill for $4 each.
$447.99 for T3i + 18-55mm
$1599.99 for 70-200mm
Plus tax & free s&h
I even got a Gadget Bag 200DG bag for free. Sell on CL for $25, and the bag is not refurbished if that matters.

|90Tiger||Although both are currently out of stock, how does the Canon EF 70-200 f/2.8L ($1,699 refurb on Canon's site) compare to the Canon EF 28-300 f3.5/5.6 ($1,828 refurb on Canon's site) for shooting sporting events? Is it worth trading the 2.8L on the 70-200 for the higher "zoom" on the 28-300?|

Didn't Canon sell refurbished 70-200mm F2.8L IS II last year for like $1,599? Guess it went up $100 this year...lol

The 70-210mm f4 he mentioned is supposed to be a gem as well. Personally I find IS too useful on the EF-S 55-250mm that I consider it to be one of the best value Canon Lenses, after the 50mm f1.8.

I rarely post but just wanted people considering this deal to know that I bought this specifically for taking pictures of 4 yr and 2.5 yr old kids in swimming/daycare/etc and plan on using this till they go to college.
And yes - I tried the other version f4 with IS - and while it was nice - it just did not do well in a very well lit daycare.
The other day I took this to the swimming class -and took pictures iwth 7D - O M G !
It absolutely is worth it...the pictures I got at shutter speed of 1/40 were mind blowing...so sharp you would shave with the pictures

The classic push-pull EF 70-210 f/4 is pretty neat, too, for a fraction of the cost of the 70-200 f/4L's. Of course you sacrifice USM and a non-rotating front element.

Quote from RedLT4Mike View Post :
I have known people who have had this lens fall apart on them. It is a complex lens with lots of moving parts. This is one of the ones that can fail. Buyer beware!
I've heard that they were taking pictures of BIG foot too
