Canon 24-105mm f/4L IS USM Zoom Lens

What happened to Woot being a place to get great discounts??? This EXACT lens WITH accessories is CHEAPER all over the internet. Places like 42nd Street Photo has it for $649. Even AMAZON has it for $619!!! Apparently, one of the only places that isn’t cheaper than Woot is from Canon’s own store… SMH

Make sure you’re looking at the same lens. I’m seeing $999 on Amazon.

$545.40 at this retailer.

I really considered getting this lens the last time they offered it, but it seems it has a high failure rate for some aperture cable inside, which is a costly fix out of warranty. It also can be found cheaper outside woot.

Well, here is the one from 42nd Street Photo for $649:

And here it is on Amazon for $619:

Only difference is the one on Amazon is a “white box” vs. the Canon packaging…I don’t think a box is worth $80, is it?

I’m not going to buy camera equipment from a site I don’t know. There are a lot of bait and switch sites. If the price on a piece of equipment is significantly lower than that of B&H Photo, I wouldn’t do it.

In fact, I wouldn’t buy a lens anywhere except there. I would from if they didn’t collect sales tax, but they do.

That’s from a third party vendor. It may be gray market or not have a manufacturer’s warranty. So, yes, it’s worth spending $80 from a place you know will actually ship and and you know you’ll actually have a warranty.

I purchased this and what arrived today is the much cheaper Canon EF24-105mm F3.5-5.6 IS STM lens. NOT HAPPY WOOT!

Sorry for the delayed reply. If you haven’t yet, email with your order info. CS can help get things resolved for you.

What’s even more disturbing is that I was given 2 options to deal with this problem, the first being to accept a $70 refund and keep the lens I never wanted. B&H sells the cheaper lens new for $100 less than I paid. Obviously I took the second option, full refund.
