After the long-awaited Canon 600EX-RT was announced alongside the Canon 5D Mark III earlier this year, we knew it would only be a matter of time before Canon dropped more radio transmitting Speedlites in the lineup. Now, Canon Rumors has word that a 430EX II replacement is inbound for possibly a Fall 2012 announcement.
For those not ready to cough up nearly $60o for the 6ooEX-RT Speedlite, a 430EX II replacement should come with a more enthusiast-friendly price tag (likely in the $300-$400 price range). Perhaps we’ll see an unveiling of the new flash at or around Photokina 2012.
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.

Canon USA has the 5D Mark II for $1759 refurbished (here’s the link to the 5D Mark II page), along with some more deals on several other Canon bodies. If you’ve been waiting on a deal for the 5D Mark II, you’d better move quick as these generally are only in stock for a day or less at a time.
There are also a number of refurbished Speedlites and lenses available direct from Canon USA.
Canon’s DSLR and Lens Double Rebates were supposed to expire last week; however, they’ve been extended through March 31.

Something is coming Thursday night at midnight EST. Of course, I’ll have full details up as soon as I know something official. We may even get some leaks ahead of time (usually the case).
What we’re expecting is the Canon 5D Mark III – a 22MP full frame DSLR that captures 1080p video with the same codec we see in the 1D X (edit-friendly ALL-I and the more compressed IPB). [click to continue…]
