Northlight Images has word that Canon may be introducing an updated version of the EF 400mm f/5.6L lens prior to Photokina 2012. This lens has been around for quite a while and it is relatively affordable for an L-series telephoto lens.  It will be interesting to see whether Canon puts an Image Stabilization system in the new version if the rumors are true and just how much the price will rise over the current version.

Nikon Press Conference on Sept. 13 – Full Frame D600 Expected

Nikon D600

A forum poster at DPR passed along word that they received an invite for a Nikon product launch in Dubai on September 13.  The teaser from Nikon reads, “Nikon is delighted to invite you to a showcase event celebrating the launch of the latest additions to its DSLR range.”

Sounds like the oft-rumored, 24MP full frame Nikon D600 could be launching next week as an entry-level alternative to the D800.  And if the sub-$2000 price point becomes a reality, there could be a lot of happy Nikonians this holiday season.
