From B&H Photo
B&H has put bigger savings on select lenses from Canon. These go beyond the current instant rebates from Canon. You also get a 2% reward and free shipping within the USA. You may have to add the items to your cart to see the discounted price.
B&H also has the new EF-S 18-55 f/3.5-5.6 IS STM available to purchase on its own. It may be a worthy upgrade to the previous kit lens, especially if you shoot video.
Justin has posted a new review for us. This time for the Canon EF 85 f/1.2L II, Canon’s king of lowlight for now. It’s a lens that’s hard to use well at the beginning, but if you give it some time, you’ll grow to love it and all its quirks.
“The more I used this lens, the more I got to know it, the better my images became, and the more impressed I was with it. Often relying on flash modifiers and scenes built with speedlights and strobes, I took pleasure in exploring natural light situations, and allowing focus isolate my subjects instead of contrast. I know that if it was a regular piece in my kit I would likely bring it to every job I had just to try for some of the impressive three-dimensional feeling images it creates.”

We’re going to be organizing reviews in a new way shortly, currently they’re pretty cumbersome to get to. Stay tuned.
Amazon has a couple of deals on popular Canon L primes.
