Canon EOS 6D

Amazon has the Canon EOS 6D with the EF 24-105mm f/4L IS lens discounted to $2048. Pretty good price for this kit. The EOS 6D body only goes for $1499. Still a good price, but the kit is the better bargain.

Canon Rumor: New EF 400mm IS on the Way?

Canon Rumor

Canon EF 400mm f/5.6L USM: Amazon, B&H, Adorama, Canon USA, Digitalrev, eBay

It appears that stocks for the EF 400mm f/5.6L USM are getting low in some regions, and promptly there is a rumor suggesting a new EF 400mm f/5.6 with image stabilisation may be on its way. There had previous rumours that 2014 could be a “year of the lenses” for Canon, with lot of glass set to come. We haven’t heard anything about a possible successor of the EF 400mm, but then: the EF 400mm was released in 1993 so a makeover has some plausibility. As usual take it with a grain of salt and keep in mind that only time will tell.
