A couple Canon EOS Cinema cameras received further discounts with some relatively reasonable prices now. The original Canon EOS C100 is now available for $2,299 (was $3,999), while the C100 with the Dual Pixel AF update is $2499 (was $4,499). The C100 Mark II with the EF-S 18-135mm IS STM lens is $3,699 (reg. $5,699). Finally, the C300 Mark II is available for $9,999 (reg. $15,999) – perhaps in response to the recently announced Panasonic AU-EVA1, which ships later this year. I’m not sure if these are permanent price drops or if they are only for a short while. If you’ve been on the hunt for a cinema camera though, these are are the most attractive deals Canon has offered thus far.
