After we recently saw Amazon list an availability date for the Canon 7D Mark II for October 30, B&H now confirms on its 7D Mark II product page that the camera will ship out next Thursday on October 30 for both the body and the kit options. Check it out here at B&H Photo.
Holy cow! Panasonic’s new 4K GH4 is now available for pre-order for a mind-boggling $1699. That’s a 4K camera with a large, Micro Four Thirds sensor for $1699. Panasonic just fired a big shot across the rest of the industry’s bow. Check it out here at B&H Photo.
You can also pre-order the GH4 with the Interface Unit for $3299. Check it out here at B&H Photo.
The YAGH Interface Unit itself retails for $1999. Check it out here at B&H Photo.
Sigma’s new 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM lens (yes, a constant f/1.8 zoom) just got an official price point of $799 and it will start shipping next month. It is available for Canon, Nikon, Sony, Pentax and Sigma DSLR mounts. You can pre-order the new lens with free shipping here at B&H Photo.
My thoughts are that this is perfect pricing for this lens, and I think Sigma is going to sell a ton at this price with the overly positive early reviews we’ve seen. Sigma is knocking it out of the park lately, and this is yet another home run.
