p.1 #1 · Where to buy Canon 600mm II?


I'm in the market to buy a new Canon 600mm IS II and wanted to know if any FM'ers could suggest a store other than B&H or Adorama that would be willing to deal and give a good price. Is thinking at least match and possibly throw in free 2 day or overnight shipping

Thanks in advance!

Allen's Camera would be a good alternative. I would also check out Profeel (PMI Digital). Allen would be the guy to talk to at Allen's Camera, and David would be the guy at Profeel.

Both Canon USA authorized dealers and 100% reputable.

+1 for Allen's Camera.

Living just 30 minutes from Allen's, and having done a fair amount of business there, I'm constantly and pleasantly surprised by the geographic diversity of those who know and recommend the shop.

Not to complicate matters by giving a few more options, but I also received good pricing/quick shipping from Norman Camera in Michigan. Don't forget to check Amazon as well.

Try Berger Brothers camera on Long Island....Brad can get things quicker than anyone....I don't know how but he has gotten me hard to come by items when all the of the bigger outfits couldn't. I am just a happy/satisfied customer that's all!

I bought mine from Allens, mainly because of a tip from from Chris B who lives in Pa. It was the first time I ever dealt with them. Incredible service, free shipping and an unbeatable price. They truly are a family business.

Pmi or Allen's will give you the best price. You can call b and h as well as adorama and get a price war going. Good Luke and be diligent.

I've been buying gear at Allen's for over 20 years, and am always happy to steer people in his direction. While his prices are exceptional, it's just not about price... His small staff (Rob, Marlena and Brandon) are very knowledgeable, and have been with him a long time, and they'll never steer you wrong.

Give Norman Camera in Kalamazoo Michigan a call. They have provided plenty of super tele L glass to many FM'rs. Pat Norman will be most helpful with you on availability.
Phone Sales & Customer Service 800-900-6676

Enjoy

+1 for Allens, but recently bought a 1dx from Profeel because they significantly beat Allen's and the other ususal suspects so I would try them also.

What I heard is dealer margin on the big Canon lenses is only around $500 so there isn't much room to deal. Is that incorrect?

Try CameraCanada

Fred and I both got our 500mm II lenses there. I had to wait a month, but the price was about 10% less than it would have been from the US. For some reason, the big whites are priced less above the 49th parallel.

Does Canon USA honor the warranty?
