I've updated the lens resolution testing chart you can download. It's associated with the article on lens testing and sharpness (part of the set of articles on testing and evaluating lenses)

$270 instant rebate on Sigma 150-500/5-6.3 DG APO OS HSM lens. Price after rebate is $799. It's a decent lens which I recently reviewed and at under $800 it's a good buy. Available in Canon, Nikon, Sigma, Pentax and Sony mounts.

Canon have just announced a number of permanent price drops combined with a number of instant rebates for March. For example the EOS 6D  price has dropped from $1799 to $1699, and there's a $300 instant rebate for a final price of $1399. The EOS 5D MkIII price has been reduced by $300, plus there's a $300 instant rebate making the fibal price $2499. The 7D MkII has a $100 instant rebate for a price of $1699 and the 70D has a $200 instant rebate making the price just $999. There are also deals on the Rebel SL1 and T5.

Details of all the price drops and rebates can be found at http://www.adorama.com/pages/Canon-DSLR-Special-Savings?kbid=12417

If you're looking for an inexpensive P&S, right now Adorama have the Panasonic Lumix DMC-SZ8 for just $69.99 (about 1/2 of what most retailers are charging). It has  16MP, 12x Optically Stabilized Zoom (24-288mm), 3" 460K-Dot LCD Display, USB 2.0, Wi-Fi, Creative Control/Panorama and HDR.

Seems like a useful camera that will slip into your pocket, measuring 3.9 x 2.4 x 1.0 in and weighing only 5.6oz. You can't go far wrong for $70!

Best Buy have the Fuji FinePix S9250 on special for $149.99 (with free shipping). It's a 16MP "bridge" camera with a 50x optically stabilized zoom. This package also includes an 8GB Fuji memory card and the Fuji carrying case at no extra charge.  B&H are charging $240 (without the memory card) so this time Best Buy really is the best buy!

I just posted a review of the Canon EOS 70D. I bought one myself a few months ago I thought I'd post something a bit more detailed than the brief "first look" review that was on the site before.

http://www.bobatkins.com/photography/digital/canon_eos_70D_review.html
The Canon EOS 70D is currently Canon's best consumer level DSLR, with a 20MP dual pixel sensor, and articulating LCD, built in wireless capability and ISO settings up to 25600
