Get the Goods: Canon Offers Another Round of Rebates

Canon just released information about yet another round of rebates -- this time for better glass to put on any new bodies you may have purchased during the previous batch of discounts. I snagged my 5D using the rebates that allowed me to take $300 off the camera I now love. Now I've got my eyes on the Canon 24-70 2.8 and this might be the time to invest in it.

I have enjoyed my Sigma 24-70 2.8 for the past year, namely because I think it's a great general use zoom lens. But when I tried to use it on my 5D, I had a devil of a time getting it to focus. I don't know why...maybe it has something to do with incompatibility with the 5D's full sensor. I thought there was something wrong with the lens and it needed to be repaired. On a lark, I tried using it one more time on my Canon XTi, expecting the same results, but the resulting images from the XTi are just gorgeous and extremely sharp! Here is an example of a photo I captured with the Sigma lens during the Denver Zombie Crawl 2008 over the weekend.

While pleasantly surprised, that still left me without a general use lense for my 5D. :) Looks like the Canon 24-70 will have to be my next purchase, but it might be awhile even with the rebate since it retails from $1,029 to $1,543.
