I am currently on a landscape photography workshop lead by Andy Biggs and Joshua Holko and alongside a lot of very cool people from around the globe. The landscape is absolutely stunning to say the least.
When I came to Namibia, I decided I wouldn’t carry a ton of gear, so I went for a pair of Canon EOS 6D camera bodies, the EF 70-300 f/4-5.6L IS, EF 24-70 f/4L IS and the Zeiss 15 f/2.8 Distagon. So far I’m extremely happy with my selection of gear.
Internet access hasn’t been the quickest, that’s why I haven’t been updating the site as much as usual. I still have a 5 more days on this safari and then I’ll begin the long trek home.
There are a few images from the trip after the break.

Canon Lens Deals
Camera Canada is selling super telephoto lenses at a big discount over their US counterparts and ship to the USA. These items 100% qualify for USA warranty. I buy most of my gear in Canada from these guys. They’re great to deal with. The current currency difference between Canada and the USA should help offset the price of shipping. Camera Canada ships Canada Post/USPS to the USA and so far that has avoided any customs or duties for US customers.
Adorama is selling the Canon EF 24-70 f/4L IS for $899 after an instant rebate as well as the $300 mail-in rebate from Canon. You must begin the checkout process to see the price of $1199 before the $300 mail-in rebate.
You can read our review of the lens here. For $899, I think this lens is a steal. I have one of these currently on my travels through Central and South America for its light weight, small size and macro in an emergency ability. I think it’s a great value lens when it doesn’t cost $1499!

Canon USA to start selling the new kit

Is this the beginning of the end for the EF 24-105 f/4L IS?
