If you follow CW you probably know that I am travelling the North of India. The pic above was shot while biking to Ladakh, approx. at 13,000 feet. Shot with the Canon EOS M and the amazing EF-M 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM lens. Post-processed in Adobe Lightroom 5.
If you live in the US you can order the EF-M 11-22mm IS STM at Amazon Canada.
I told you, and the rumor was true. The glorious Canon EOS 7D gets massive instant rebates for the body only, and for 2 kits. The program goes through August 2. The kits with the lenses are hot deals. EOS 7D kits on fire-sale!

Says DigitalRev’s Kai:
Do you really need image stabilisation in an ultra-wide angle lens? Canon seems to think so. We take a look at the new 16-35mm f/4L IS USM and ponder how this compares to the 16-35mm f/2.8L and the 17-40mm f/4L USM
Find it out watching the 5:31 minutes video above.
Specifications (taken from Adorama‘s product page)
- High performance L-series ultra-wide zoom lens in a compact design and Optical Image Stabilizer for up to four stops of correction
- Three aspheric lens elements, including a large-diameter aspheric lens, help correct aberration.
- Two UD lens elements help reduce chromatic aberration from the center to the periphery throughout the entire zoom range for excellent image quality with high resolution and contrast.
- Fluorine coating on front and rear lens surfaces are optimized to help minimize ghosting.
- Highly resistant to dust and water intrusion, enabling shooting even in harsh conditions.
- Inner focusing and ring USM for silent, fast and accurate autofocusing
- Circular aperture (9 blades) delivers beautiful, soft backgrounds.
- Minimum focusing distance of 0.92 ft/0.28m across entire zoom range.
- Full-time manual focus allows manual focus adjustment while in AF Mode.
I have been told (thanks) that Canon will start a new instant rebates program next week. While a lot of Canon DSLRs and kits are involved, the discounts are particularly consistent for the EOS 7D. Another hint that its successor is close to be announced? I think so.
Both the EOS 7D body only and the kit with EF-S 18-135mm IS lens will get a wobbling $500 instant discount, the 7D kit with the EF 28-135mm IS lens will get $600 instant rebate.
New instant rebates programs will start also for the following Canon DSLRs and kits:
EOS 70D, EOS 60D, Rebel T5i, Rebel SL1, Rebel T3i, Rebel T3, Rebel T5.
