B&H has the new Canon Speedlite 600EX II-RT in stock and now shipping. The new hot shoe flash replaces the original 600EX-RT and improves recycling time by as much as 1.5x with AA batteries or 2x with a new Canon CP-E4N battery pack. Check it out here at B&H Photo.
While we don’t have any reliable info on specs, CR also says it has word that we’ll get a DSLR with a “new nameplate” in the EOS lineup in 2017.
Will the mythical EOS 3D finally arrive? Something on the consumer side?
Sound off with your thoughts and speculation below.
A recently published lens patent corroborates past rumors of a new Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II lens. The new lens is likely to appear later this year alongside the oft-rumored Canon 5D Mark IV.
The existing Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS lens has been a work horse over the past decade. The retail price still hovers around $1,000 but you can find refurbished and gray market units in the $500-$600 range these days. Expect the new model to be bundled as a kit with the 5D Mark IV and available at a standalone price in the $1200-$1500 range.

Here is a new Canon DSLR kit from B&H Photo for which I custom selected the products and asked B&H to provide discounts to Photography Bay readers (which they did $$$). I have a Canon kit for now (a Nikon kit is in the works) and if these turn out to be popular, there may be more down the line.
My thoughts on putting together these kits were to select quality, reliable and affordable DSLR kits for beginners. These are kits that are a good fit for most beginners who just don’t know what they are looking for but would like a quality camera at a good price.
There are no cheap tripods or junk accessories inside these kits. This is gear that I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to my mom or my best friends if they wanted a first “serious” camera. Check out what’s in the Canon kit below.
