Wow! Truly excellent deals.

I have heard nothing but great things about this lens.

I have the f1.4 version and use it for everything. Love the image attributes and quality. Though not the sharpest wide open. Which isn't a deal killer for me.

Love that Zeiss is getting some due.

Never thought much about the 24-105 f/4 L. But at that price....

I think the 'A1' is just a prototype designation.

EVF? Well, okay. It's going to happen sooner or later. As long as it's implemented well.

The 1DX is a GREAT camera. I drooled over it via the youtube video and a Canon rep demo'ing it. I too bought into 'the unification of the 1-series'. It sort of makes sense.

But as a fashion and portrait photographer, I'm more interested in dynamic range vs. speed. And at the end of the day and looking at images, it doesn't offer any improvement over my 5DMKII. I think the 1DX is a big jump for sports/action photographers. But fashion and portrait? Nada.

Well, we're talking September when it will be shown. Plenty of time to stir up rumors  ;D

I just hope it's not a 'nice update' to the 1DS MKIII. It's got to kick ass. Resolution is good. But tonal-range has to be dramatically improved. There's just no reason not to expect that.

An 'equivalent' huh?   ;)

Well, at least they are coming out with a successor. I only played with one once.  I was extremely impressed by it.

Amazing! Seriously, a Panasonic Lumix DMC LX7 compact was on my list. But for $369, the SL1 just shot up a few slots. Not nearly as pocketable as the LX7, but would be an excellent street/travel camera.

Pricewatch Deals / Re: Deal: EOS 5D Mark III $2689, 24-105 f/4L IS $672

Wow..  I've been wishing how I could have one of these for my event photography. The ISO performance of this over my 5D MKII is truly impressive.

Very good. The more competition and choices, better for the consumer.

Yes. The 7D is a highly respected camera and Canon isn't going to abandon the model. If they didn't do it with the 5D. They won't with the 7D.

I simply hope Canon won't do with the 7D what they did with the 5D MKII: Make it's successor half the camera everyone expected. The MKIII rode on the laurels of the MKII pedigree. And Canon used that pedigree to sell the MKIII.

I love my Canon 50D and mostly love my 5D MK II. An extra stop or two of ISO would be nice. I would like the ergonomics closer to the MKIII. And love MF DR. Still, these cameras are capable of creating just about any image any other DSLR can do except for the extremes. Which is about .005% of photographers.

If Canon wants to make halfies, that's fine with me. I'll just wait for something that rocks for my needs. If I want to spend money, there's lots of lenses, lights, stands and other gear to buy in the meantime!

It's great that the 5D was the first 'affordable' full frame camera.  I've seen pics from it and the quality is on par with just about anything today.  I agree with an earlier statement.  Don't be fooled by 'new'.  Newer cameras have some features that make taking pictures easier in less than ideal conditions.  But how many people does that truly affect?

Not ground breaking but looks pretty cool.  For $300, I'd probably buy one.  If $400 or more, it better have some really nice lenses available...

Upgrade the 1DX?  I just don't see it.  Though the price would drop on the original and could make a nice intermediary step between the 7D MKII and 1DX MKII

I can't imagine Canon waiting another year to release their big MP...  They'll keep bleeding sales to the Nikon D800...
