Odds & Ends
By| September 13, 2009
A battery charger claiming to charge a battery for a 60D has appeared at Best Buy. It could be the D60, or just a misprint.
7D Ship Dates
Best Buy expects first shipment of the 7D, G11 and S90 on October, 11, 2009.
A report from the Netherlands says a Rep stated a ship date there as September 26, 2009.
The Rebel XS has been removed from the Vistek web site.
A local store has had the camera on “eternal backorder”.
The camera is still appearing on Canon price lists in the US and Canada.
EF 70-200 f/2.8L IS
Canon Canada recently started instant rebates on select lenses. The 70-200 f/2.8L IS was originally part of the rebate program and has since been removed in favor of the 70-200 f/4L IS.
If you see any current Canon literature on the rebate program (I can’t find it on the web), you’ll see the 70-200 f/2.8L IS still appears on some of the literature in background images and the image for the 70-200 f/4L IS is different than the rest of the lenses on the rebate amount lines.
Canon Canada late to know something? Wouldn’t be the first time.
I’ll post pics of this tomorrow, I don’t have the literature handy.
Could be nothing…
Price Watch EOS
I have updated the Price Watch EOS page. It now includes the 7D. I have removed the 40D and G10 from the page.
