Now through October 12, the Canon USA online store has its selection of refurbished lenses and Speedlites for 15% off. Check it out here on Canon’s website.
I’ve had a few conversations today and a couple tips come in. The consensus among those is that there is no new camera slated for launch on August 21. Or, if so, Canon is keeping a tighter lid on this camera than any other it has released in recent history. So that would mean no new EOS M, 7D Mark II or 75MP+ EOS 1 camera. [Read more...]
Canon USA has the 5D Mark III refurbished for $2,674.21 as part of its “Spend $500 & Save $125″ deal right now (compare to $3,499 new). Also, there’s free shipping with the promo code DAD613 right now. Check it out here at Canon USA.
FYI, these usually sell out pretty quickly when Canon USA posts them.
Canon issued a product advisory for the new EF 40mm f/2.8 STM lens. The AF may stop working when enough pressure is applied to the lens barrel while attached to a camera.
The current fix is to remove the lens and reattach it. A firmware update should be available soon to fix the problem altogether.
I haven’t experienced this problem yet.

A week or two ago, Canon USA had refurbished Canon 5D Mark II’s for $1999. They sold out pretty quick.
There are also a number of refurbished Speedlites and lenses available direct from Canon USA.
