Tokina 11-16mm F/2.8 ATX Pro DX On Sale For $575

Tokina 11-16mm

Adorama has the Tokina 11-16mm F/2.8 ATX Pro DX on sale with a 4% discount for $575 (click here). They have also a kit with a Tiffen 77mm UV Wide Angle Filter and a Professional Lens Cleaning Kit for $598.91 (click here).

Product description:

The new Tokina AT-X 116 PRO DX is an ultra-wide angle lens with a fast f/2.8 aperture for better photography in low-light situations. Many photojournalists consider having an f/2.8 aperture a must for any lens in their camera bag.

Based on the award-winning optical design of the AT-X 124 PRO DX (12-24mm f/4) lens, the new AT-X 116 PRO DX has a slightly shorter zoom range to maintain optical quality at wide apertures.

Tokina’s exclusive One-touch Focus Clutch Mechanism allows the photographer to switch between AF and MF simply by snapping the focus ring forward for AF and back toward the camera to focus manually. There is no need to change the AF-MF switch on Nikon cameras** and there is no second AF/MF switch on the lens for Canon, everything is accomplished by the focus ring.

Rumor: Canon EOS 5D Mark III Price Set To Be Lowered After April 9?

EOS 5D Mark III Freezing

This news surfaced on the web, on a site I didn’t know before. They suggest that “according to information portals” the price tag of the Canon EOS 5D Mark III (price & specs) will be lowered after April 9th, and that it is related to the announcement of the Canon EOS 7D Mark II, the eagerly awaited successor of the Canon EOS 7D (price & specs). The EOS 7D Mark II is said to have a price tag below $1800.

I am somewhat perplexed, since none of my sources ever told me or can confirm this.

Canon EOS 5D Mark III price check: Amazon, B&H, Adorama, Canon USA, J&R, Digitalrev, Borrow Lenses, eBay, rent it here
Canon EOS 7D price check: Amazon, B&H, Adorama, Canon USA, J&R, Digitalrev, Borrow Lenses, eBay, rent it here

Will The Canon EOS 70D Be Announced On April 23?

EOS 70D

Latest EOS 70D rumors suggest an announcement on April 23 for the successor of the highly popular Canon EOS 60D  (price & specs).

It appears that Canon sent out invites for a press event on April 23, though there is nothing official yet. The only additional information we have is that the new sensor featured on the Canon Rebel SL1/EOS 100D could be featured also on the Canon EOS 70D. An announcement at the end of April is plausible.
