Pretty good deal by eBay seller bigvalueinc: get the Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS workhorse lens for $659.99 (click here). Free shipping. The lens will soon be discontinued by Canon, read a related rumor about an upcoming Sigma 24-105mm lens here. Please note what the seller says:
- This lens is 100% brand new.
- These are lenses that were originally packaged with Canon Camera Kits. We sold the Canon Kits in a quantity order, and we had simply removed the Lenses and placed them in their own box with all original foam packaging.These Lenses are limited quantity only.
Photorumors compiled a list of the lenses that Sigma could possibly announce in 2014. Take everything with a grain of salt, though there will be new Sigma lenses next year. The list:
- Sigma 24-105mm f/4 OS
- Sigma 24-70mm f/2 OS HSM
- Sigma 300mm f/2.8 OS
- Sigma 400mm f/2.8 OS
- Sigma 500mm f/4 OS
- Sigma 600mm f/4 OS
- Sigma 135mm f/1.8 DG OS
- Sigma 24mm f/1.4 DG
- a new Sigma 50mm f/1.4 lens is also a possibility
Would be great if Sigma can deliver more outstanding lenses like the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM (price & specs). Let’s hope and wait. In the meantime you could like to read about the interview with the engineer that designed the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 and 35mm f/1.4 lenses.
Moreover, German site Valuetech reports a rumor related to an upcoming Sig,a 24-105mm OS lens. This is a very interesting rumour. Since Canon will stop the production of the highly popular Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM (price & specs) lens, it makes sense for Sigma to step in. Valuetech writes:
We’ve been told that lens manufacturer Sigma is close to announce a 24-105mm f/4 lens for fullframe DSLRs (the announcement could been expected some time in 2013), which might be a good replacement for the EoL Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS. Right now it’s not for sure if we’ll see an optical image stabilizer (OS) in it as well as if it will become a C-, A- or S-series lens regarding to Sigmas very own nomenclature.

I am still on travel in the US, so again I apologise for not posting as usual. However, got my EOS 70D today and even if I did not yet have time to try it out as I would like I am very satisfied with the first impression. Canon brought back to the XxD line a lot of features they took away when they released the EOS 60D three years ago (AF micro-adjustement, just to mention one). The things I like most so far: electronic level in the view-finder, AD micro-adjustement, solid build (though not as rugged as the 40D and 50D), flip screen, 19 points AF, WiFi, the Dual Pixel CMOS AF. I think Canon did also a great j0b with the positioning of all the controls and buttons: everything appears well positioned and designed. The touch screen works fine (if you want to use it, I do not).
The EOS 70D is for sure the most innovative camera Canon made since years, a truly well designed piece of gear. I am not into videography but I am sure videographers will love the EOS 70D.
