"This is The-Digital-Picture.com's Weekend Recap for the week ending December 7th, 2013.
In the news...
On Tuesday, Canon announced the EOS M2 to its Asian markets. The next iteration in Canon’s mirrorless lineup will feature a faster AF system, slightly faster burst rate, built-in Wi-Fi and a slimmer body. The camera will be available to the Asian market in mid-December. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like the EOS M2 will be coming to North America. However, I’m sure Canon’s plans could change depending on demand.
Our thoughts? Well, on the one hand, we’re glad to see Canon’s commitment to improving their mirrorless lineup. On the other hand, we think this incremental upgrade would have looked a lot more enticing if it had included the Dual Pixel sensor found in Canon 70D. EOS M3, anyone?
On Friday, Samyang announced its 10mm f/2.8 lens for crop sensor cameras featuring nano crystal anti-reflection coatings. Unfortunately, price and release date are as of yet unknown.
In site news and reviews...
On Monday, Bryan posted his extensive “What I Want for Christmas from Canon” list. His holiday wishes included a Sharp camera mode, exposure compensation with Auto ISO, a more user friendly electronic level, and of course – a stabilized 24-70mm f/2.8 L – as well as quite a few other things. Check out Bryan’s full post to see all of his Christmas requests.
After Bryan’s post we asked you – “What do you want from Canon for Chirstmas?” Some of your answers included RAW video via official firmware, a higher resolution 6D, a retro styled Canon body and the most popular response, a 7D Mark II.
And, for our deal of the week…
On Wednesday, we posted a deal from Adorama where you could get a 5D Mark III, EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM, PIXMA PRO-100 and photo paper for $3,347.00 with free shipping after $400.00 mail-in rebate. Considering that the 5D Mark III body-only is going for a shade under $2,900 right now, the bundle was an exceptional deal.
This has been the The-Digital-Picture.com’s Weekend Recap. Thanks for listening, and as always, happy shooting!"
I own an earlier version of Lightroom but not Photoshop. Do I qualify for the Photoshop Photography Program offer?

Who is eligible for this offer?
This offer is available to anyone until December 31, 2013. There are no previous product ownership requirements.
Regardless of the discrepancy, you can avoid missing out on the deal by signing up today. As I've mentioned before, Photoshop CC is definitely worth $9.99 per month – getting Lightroom 5 is just icing on the cake. [Sean]
