The just-announced Fuji X-E1, XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 OIS lens and XF 14mm f/2.8 R lens are now available for pre-order. See the pre-order links below.
Sigma has announced pricing and availability for its DP1 Merrill compact camera, which features a 19mm f/2.8 fixed lens (28mm equivalent). The DP1 Merrill differs from the DP1x because the DP1 Merrill includes one “F” low dispersion glass element for correcting aberrations in addition to the Foveon X3 46MP image sensor (same sensor as the Sigma SD1 Merrill).
The DP1 Merrill will be available for $999 in mid-September. Check availability at B&H Photo.
Back in July, we learned that the new Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II was being pushed back to September. Well, it’s September now and Canon Rumors has word that retailers have started to receive their stock of the new lens. The lenses are expected to be in retailers in North America and Europe by September 13.
The new lens was announced by Canon back in February 2012 and was slated for availability in April 2012. The lens is expected to be widely available by October after pre-orders are filled.
