A rumor about a possible replacement for the Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L prime lens surfaced. There are neither specifications nor an announcement date (announcement shouldn’t be in short). Moreover, it is said that Canon may announce the lens when they announce a new full-frame DSLR (in 2014). Last year I I reported about a patent that most probably refers to the new 35mm.
Deals: Canon EOS 6D Body w/ Accessories ($1620), EOS 6D ($1587), Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 EX DG OS w/ Accessories ($999)
Top rated plus eBay seller getitdigital (>42000 ratings, 99.5% positive) has the Canon EOS 6D body only for just $1619.99 (click here). There are also some accessories, though some of them are of questionable utility (the “no-name” memory cards, maybe good for emergencies). You can see the accessories in the image above. The price would be a bargain also without these accessories, regular price is $1899. Free shipping, USA warranty, limited stock. Getitdigital does also have the Canon EOS 6D body with no accessories at all at $1586.99 (click here).
The Canon EOS 6D recently got reviewed by The Phoblographer, the reviewer writes:
I actually did really like the 6D. I thought it handled well, had really quite good image quality and impressive low-light focusing abilities. There’s certainly more I liked about it than didn’t and I think it’s a worthy consideration for any Canon shooters looking to go full-frame.

Another review that assesses how awesome the SIgma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM lens is. ephotozine reviewed Sigma’s latest addition to their “Art” line-up, and say:
This lens opens new possibilities for owners of APS-C format cameras for low light shooting and creative use of depth of field with a fast f/1.8 maximum aperture, normally reserved for prime focal length lenses. The image quality delivered, especially at shorter focal lengths is of the level normally reserved for prime lenses also.
These are the test videos of the upcoming EOS M firmware update (V2.0.2) I featured in a previous post about a dedicated EOS M firmware page by Canon Korea. They showed up on YouTube (user canonplex). Unfortunately I can’t translate the video titles, so I have no idea which settings have been used.
