Just published a review of the Tamron 15-30/2.8 Di VC USD, the first f2.8 wideangle zoom with built in image stabilization. It's sharp, the stabilization works well and it's under $1200

The Tamron 15-30/2.8 Di VC USD is the first full frame wideangle zoom lens with image stabilization built in. It's sharp, reasonably priced and an overall outstanding performer

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!

Just posted a mini-review of the Canon EOS 5Ds, a 50.6MP full frame DSLR. Remarkable resolution and certainly a camera every landscape, portrait and commercial photographer will want to consider

Canon EOS 5Ds Review. I recently had the opportunity to shoot with a Canon EOS 5Ds for a couple of days. The Canon EOS 5Ds is the highest pixel density full frame DSLR currently available, with a 50MP CMOS sensor. That's about 40% more pixels than the 36MP Nikon D800/D810 and more than double ...

$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.

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.

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!
