I am always combing the web for deals of any kind, but man, I have to tell you. It sure is nice when Canon does all the work and I just have to share the details with you. Today, I was made aware that Canon has cut prices of a ton of their lenses, over 22 total, plus some accessories – some with as much a $1000 in savings!canon-lenses

The best part about these deals, they are all permanent (that is what we are being told anyway), so there is no time limit. The prices you will see below are the new permanent prices for these lenses. I wonder if this means Canon has finally realized that people are not down with their extreme pricing on the majority of their products.

Zooms

Special lenses and accessories

Some of these are really great deals, like the 24-70mm F/4 dropping $500, and $200 off the 24-70mm F/2.8. Obviously, since these are the new permanent prices there is no need to rush a purchase… But no one would blame you if you did!

**As we all know, pricing on lenses can be pretty fluid at times. So while these price drops are expected to be permanent, there is no guarantee on that. So if something catches your eye, probably better to jump on it sooner than later.**
