Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5
B&H has the Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5 Retail Box Version available for $109.95 with free shipping. Regularly $144.95.
 
Something to consider: Through May 31, Adobe has the Photoshop Photography Program (Photoshop CC & Lightroom 5) available for $9.99/mo (with 1 year commitment) with no previous ownership requirements. So for a little more than the deal above, you could get access to Photoshop CC and Lightroom 5 for an entire year. I've been a Photoshop Photography Program member since September and really enjoy it. I believe it's an excellent value at $9.99 per month. [Sean]

From B&H Explora:
 
Zacuto announced its new and novel lens support system for use with Canon Cinema EOS Prime Lenses, Compact Zooms, and Zeiss CP.2 prime lenses in EOS mount. The system locks the camera and lens securely to your baseplate, providing support and stability, while still allowing you to swap lenses in about the same amount of time as if you were not using a lens support.
 
The lens support system consists of the rod support and the lens “foot.” The system works with a variety of cameras in Canon EF mount, including most DSLRs and the Canon Cinema EOS Cameras. The rod support mounts on LWS support rods, and provides a machined channel or “hook” into which the lens support foot slides, thus supporting the lens on the rods. The system allows you to support the above mentioned heavy cinema-style lenses on your camera, but without using a screw-in lens support, which can be difficult and time consuming to set up.
 
The support foot itself is designed to mount on each lens, becoming a part of the lens, yet adding little to the size of the lens itself. It is important to note that you will need one foot for each lens, and that the support foot for the Canon and Zeiss lenses are different. You can use the support hook with baseplates that feature adjustable rod heights, for use with different cameras. The rod support itself also features height adjustment for baseplates that don't have height-adjustment capability. Once the lens feet are mounted on the lenses, you can swap Canon Cine Primes and Zeiss CP.2 lenses between the same camera body without making any further adjustments to the support hook.

Profoto B1 Off-Camera Flash
From Profoto:
 
Profoto releases the first firmware upgrade for the B1 off-camera flash and the AirTTL system, enabling TTL metering with Canon EOS-1D X.
 
April 28, 2014 – When launched in November 2013, the Profoto B1 off-camera flash caused such a buzz in the photographic community that the company’s website crashed. The B1 was the world’s first cordless monolight with TTL. The words “game changer” have appeared in reviews and forums ever since.
 
The TTL metering is made possible with Profoto’s patent-pending AirTTL system. Already at launch Profoto promised to continuously update the AirTTL system. One of the most frequently requested features is TTL metering with Canon’s flagship model: the Canon EOS-1D X. Today, this feature is made available free of charge through an easily installed firmware upgrade.
 
Note that it is not the B1 off-camera flash itself that needs to be upgraded; it is the small radio transmitter that is mounted on the Canon camera’s hot shoe: the Air Remote TTL-C.
 
The process is very simple:

  1. Go to www.profoto.com/support.
  2. Sign in with an existing My Profoto account or create a new one.
  3. Register your B1 and your Air Remote TTL-C.
  4. Download the upgrade.
  5. Open the software and follow the simple instructions.

That is it. You can do all of this without having to contact a service station.
 
“Enabling photographers to do the upgrades themselves is a great step in our quest for providing Profoto users with the best in class customer support,” says Göran Marén, Product Manager at Profoto. “This is something we will strive to provide for all new products.”
 
This is the first of many planned upgrades for the B1 off-camera flash and the AirTTL system. Profoto is currently working on a firmware upgrade for high-speed sync (HSS). Profoto is also busy developing the new Air Remote TTL-N that will enable TTL metering with Nikon cameras. Both the HSS upgrade and the Air Remote TTL-N are expected to be released in 2014.

Samyang 35mm f/1.4 Canon AE Lens
From Samyang (translated):
 
Samyang is proud to announce new lenses that will be available soon – the 35mm f/1.4 Canon AE, 300mm f/6.3 Mirror DSLR and a series of VDSLR lenses: Samyang 10mm T3.1, 12mm T2.2 and 7.5mm T3.8.
 
The new new 35mm f/1.4 Canon EF mount version will feature AE (Auto Exposure), which has so far been exclusively reserved for lenses with the Nikon F bayonet lens mount. The optical construction of the lens has not changed with excellent image quality and mechanical operation. The Samyang 35mm f/1.4 is designed for use with Canon digital SLR cameras, compatible with full frame and APS-C sensor cameras.
 
Samyang will also offer a lightweight and compact lens 300mm f/6.3 Mirror UMC CS in DSLR mounts Canon EF, Nikon F, Sony A and Micro 4/3. The optical construction has 8 elements in 8 groups. The lenses feature multi-layer coatings (UMC) to minimize glare and increase contrast. A large focal length, exceptionally affordable price and small footprint (lens weighs only 260g) means this lens will become a constant companion for SLR users "in the field".

Samyang 300mm f/ 6.3 Mirror UMC CS Lens

The Samyang 10mm T3.1 12mm T2.2 Cine and Cine will also be available soon. Samyang VDSLR lenses have aperture and focus rings designed to work with Follow Focus systems. The deeply ribbed rings allow whisper-quiet and smooth changes of these parameters during filming.

Samyang 10mm T3.1 Cine Lens

The Samyang 10mm T3.1 and 12mm T2.2 Cine lenses feature a nanocrystalline anti-reflective coating (NCS) which provides better light transmission, greater resistance to glare and higher contrast, producing excellent image quality.
 
Samyang 12 mm version of the photo and film lens, designed for APS-C sensor cameras, fills the need for a wide-angle lens paired with a wide aperture. The lens is designed for cameras equipped with high-resolution sensors (over 24MP). Samyang Optics has earned a reputation of providing excellent quality lenses at an affordable price. The latest set of lenses live up to Samyang's storied reputation. The 10mm and 12 mm, which in terms of mechanical construction and optical capabilities, can successfully compete with the best wide-angle lenses available on the market today.

Samyang 12mm T2.2 Cine Lens

The product range is further complemented by the Samyang 7.5mm Fish-eye T3.8 Cine lens. This is a film version of the precisely designed fisheye lens, giving a diagonal field of view equal to 180 degrees. Though small in size, Samyang 7.5mm T3.8 Cine can get get unique shots with excellent performance and exceptional visual creativity, and features a minimum focusing distance of just 0.09 meters.
