Amazon currently has the rather hard-to-find Sony NEX-7 in-stock. Check it out here on Amazon.
Recent stock updates on major retailers suggest that the Canon 5D Mark III, Nikon D4 and Nikon D800 will all ship in March. Those who are on some of the pre-order lists will be seeing their new cameras in the next couple of weeks.
Check ship dates and pre-order options for these cameras below.
Canon 5D Mark III (expected ship date of March 22)
Nikon D800 (expected ship date of March 20-22)
Nikon D4 (expected ship date of March 20-22)
Got a really old Canon Rebel or Rebel XT that you’d like to upgrade to something newer? Or, maybe you just want to pick up a Canon Rebel body and a cheap 50mm f/1.8 lens?
Here’s a great bargain right now on the Olympus E-PL1 with a 14-42mm lens for $274.99 at Amazon, along with free shipping. When the E-PL1 was first introduced, it cost $600 for this kit. This is a steal of a deal.
This is likely a closeout of stock, so there’s no telling how long this will last. Note, you can also find a used, but good condition, stock of the E-PL1 at B&H for a few bucks less.
There have been all kinds of crazy deals from Canon in the recent weeks. Canon recently updated many of the DSLR kits and lenses that have rebates. Now, everything from the Rebel T3 to the 5D Mark II has some very solid savings available.
Below is a quick rundown of the current instant rebate offers for Canon DSLRs. (If you are looking for lenses or Speedlites on their own, see this chart of all the Fall/Winter Canon lens & Speedlite instant rebates.) [Read more…]

Amazon is about to open up Cyber Monday with a Lightning Deal on a Canon DSLR. Chances are that this limited quantity item will go fast, so watch the countdown here a little before 12:15AM ET if you’re interested.
If you’re not looking for a DSLR, there are plenty of photo accessories like memory cards, lenses, tripods, computers and more on the Cyber Monday 2011 deals page.

Even though the Sony NEX-3 is last year’s model, it’s still a competent camera – and Amazon has a solid deal now through December 3. The Sony NEX-3 kit with an 18-55mm lens and the 16mm f/2.8 pancake lens is only $499.
The 16mm lens alone is normally $250, so this is quite a bargain.
Here’s the link to Amazon.
The Sigma 200-500mm f/2.8 lens is a $26,000 beast of a lens. It’s also one that few photographers will ever hope to own. But that didn’t stop several people from reviewing the lens on Amazon with some rather humorous takes on what the lens has fictitiously done for them.
The sample images are pretty entertaining too…
