So, I got a camelcamelcamel alert for this lens on Amazon (as posted here) yesterday at the cheapest price it's ever been, but it was out of stock when I got a chance to look at it (½ hour after receiving the alert). Given the price drop I wondered if Amazon had matched someone else - a quick Google search showed it at the same price at John Lewis. Ready to pounce, I clicked through and found it was out of stock there as well - although JL's price promise was mentioned as being active. After attempting to find who it was they were price matching (without success), I resolved to check my local branch this morning. Initial results were not encouraging as the price on the shelf was the usual price of ~£650, however a quick chat with a staff member confirmed that if the price was listed on John Lewis's website then it would apply in store. A quick stock check, and I got the last one in stock in Kingston!

Given that the price is due to JL's price promise, I imagine this is available at every John Lewis, but I doubt they have many of these lenses in stock at any one store given the usual retail price. No idea how long the price will last either since I couldn't work out who they were price matching - the obvious suspects (Jessops, Argos, Currys/PC World) either don't sell it or haven't reduced the price.

Very good price if you can find one. Suspiciously £373,is the same price as the non L lens, so could be a pricing error.

I'm certainly going to take a look later although I'm not going there especially as this could turn into a bit of a wild goose chase...

Bargain, just traded one in for £400, quick small profit opportunity

Just reserved the last one at cheadle. Is there a canon cashback offer on this as well?

Given no-one else seems to be selling this lens at this price, it certainly makes sense that the price promise has been incorrectly applied in this instance.

You are looking at the wrong lens. The none L lens is £373

cracking lens at an excellent price, agree it must be a misprice

I asked the gentleman who served me if the price was right (when I collected mne) and they said someone had missed up!

stores have them on display that don't show in their stock, so it's worth checking. Managed to get further 10% off by taking the absolutely pristine display model... a steal at £335!!

got one yesterday at the store in Oxford Street, the vendor himself was not aware of that price, it was labeled at £650, only after i asked him and he checked on the system he told me the price was right. it's a bargain for that price

the price has gone back up now
