The new Canon EOS M will be available in October for $799.99 with a 22mm f/2 kit lens. The EOS M and several accessories are available for pre-order now via the links below.
Pricing and availability are now official for the new Sigma APO Macro 180mm f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM lens. It will be available on July 27 for $1699 for Canon, Nikon, Sigma, Sony and Pentax mounts. It’s currently available for pre-order at B&H Photo.
More info on the new lens in the latest press release below. [Read more…]
The new 24-70mm f/2.8L lens was announced back in February (and was slated for availability in April 2012) alongside the Canon 24mm and 28mm prime lenses (both of which were slated for a June launch and are now readily available). This delay will put the refreshed 24-70mm lens availability at 7+ months after announcement (assuming Canon doesn’t delay it again).

Several sources around the web are reporting that US retailers will be getting their first shipments of the Canon 1D X this week. While you shouldn’t expect to see 1D X actually in stock this week, this is a good sign that pre-orders will start being fulfilled on this long-delayed camera.
This also means that we’ll start seeing some real-world usage from the 1D X filter onto the web. It’s been a long time since I first got hands on the 1D X back in October 2011. I sure didn’t think that it would be nearly nine months later before the camera shipped.
The Nikon D4 is currently in stock at Amazon.
B&H has the new Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM Pancake lens in stock and now shipping. Given the size and the $199 price, I expect this to be a very popular little lens.
The Sony NEX-F3 is in stock at B&H. The NEX-F3 looks to be everything that the NEX-C3 is – and more.
As a result, I’m pegging the NEX-F3 as the g0-t0 consumer camera for those who want better quality than they get out of a point and shoot camera. I own the NEX-C3 and it has been a fantastic camera – particularly when combined with the great little Sigma 30mm f/2.8 lens that stays on it.
