I just saw the news or wishful thinking? Sorry if I am copying a thread already out there. I read not long ago that rebates were coming. P.net will not let me post the link or even the title of the thread. I apologize if this is false information, but does anyone have more info on this story? You can look this up and see the story> ''A major new Nikon US rebate program will be introduced this Saturday at midnight.'' I apologize if I broke any rules. I just want to know if it is true. I would like to know if the site that announced the info is legitimate (for future reference) Been waiting for a price drop on lens for over a year.
