eBay (via AllNewShop) has the Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM Lens (review) available for $595.00 with free shipping. Compare at $999.00.
 
Note: This is likely a grey market item and therefore technically ineligible for a Canon USA warranty.
 
From Sean: It's difficult to enumerate the many uses for this lens. If you don't currently own a general purpose lens for your full-frame camera, it's hard to beat the value that this lens brings to your kit. I even used it for my latest self-portrait posted to Flickr which hit their Explore feed last night.

Adobe has released its latest version of Camera RAW which includes a fix for the Sigma 50 ART misidentification bug as well as a new Boundary Warp feature. [Sean]
 
From Adobe:
 
Camera Raw 9.4 is now available through the update mechanism in Photoshop CC and the Creative Cloud application.
 
As mentioned in an update to our camera support policy here, Camera Raw 9.4 is only available in Photoshop CC or later. Customers using older versions of Photoshop can utilize the DNG Converter for continued camera support.
 
Introducing Boundary Warp
 
Stitched panoramas often have non-rectangular boundaries. There are several ways to handle irregular boundaries. The most common approach is to apply a rectangular crop. This is straightforward, but important image details near the boundary may be lost due to cropping. Another approach is to use Content Aware Fill (in Photoshop) to fill in the transparent areas outside the boundary. This can be effective, but may require multiple attempts to obtain a satisfying (smooth, artifact-free) result. It can also be expensive and requires rendering out the panorama to an output-referred format. Boundary Warp is a feature that provides another approach to handling the irregular boundary of panoramas. The feature analyzes the boundary and warps the image so that its edges fit a rectangular frame. Here’s a visual example of the feature:

Additional Updates in Camera Raw 9.4
 
  • Nikon 1 J4 Camera matching profile support added
  • The panorama merging process should complete roughly twice as fast as ACR 6.3
  • Improved quality when applying Auto Straighten and Upright “Level” mode.
  • Metadata is added to merged panoramas to support Photoshop’s Adaptive Wide Angle filter
  • DNG Converter 9.4 now supports HiDPI displays on Mac

From Dubai360:
Burj Khalifa Pinnacle 45 Gigapixels
 
"To celebrate the 1 year anniversary of Dubai 360 going live, we are delighted to present to you a new record breaking gigapixel from the pinnacle of the Burj Khalifa! Now 45 Gigapixels in size - the largest photograph ever taken in Dubai - you can explore Dubai in more detail than ever before.
 
The Burj Khalifa is the ultimate symbol of Dubai’s growth and ambition. It’s a towering icon rising 2,722 feet that dominates the city skyline – and a dazzling architectural wonder, which affords the ultimate view of a bustling metropolis. The skyscraper, which officially opened on January 4, 2010, rises above it all. Soaring 160 stories, its record-breaking achievements include the world’s tallest building and highest outdoor observation deck. Step inside this centerpiece of Downtown Dubai to explore the At The Top observation decks; dine at the exclusive At.mosphere; and stay in the signature Armani hotel. Or, explore this panoramic view from the pinnacle of the tower – which has a symmetrical three-petal footprint based on the desert flower hymenocallis – and witness a skyline that blends nature and engineering, history and the future.
 
From the azure shores of the Arabian Gulf to the man-made waterways and Palm islands, from the timeless beauty of Bastakiya to the distinctive sail-shaped Burj al Arab – this view from the very top leaves a lasting impression."
