From Nikon:
 
January 9, 2017 — Melville, NY — Nikon began celebrating its 100-year anniversary in 2017 with its return to CES. Its latest digital imaging technologies were demonstrated at Nikon’s booth and at areas throughout the show floor.
 
Visitors to the Nikon booth had the opportunity for hands-on time with the newest Nikon products. These included the connected, compact D5600 DSLR and the KeyMission action camera line.
 
They also heard from Nikon professional photographers at the Nikon School Theater. Other experiences on the show floor included the return of Project HeliX powered by Nikon and an interactive VR (virtual reality) area featuring content captured with the KeyMission 360.
 
Nikon showcased several new products. They were headlined by the lightweight D5600 DSLR. The D5600 features easy sharing using Nikon SnapBridge technology, a 24.2MP sensor and an intuitive touch-screen, vari-angle LCD monitor.
 
Also announced were two additions to Nikon’s Coolpix compact, point-and-shoot camera line. The everything-proof W100 adventure camera exhibited along with the A300. The Coolpix A300 has a 20.1MP sensor, 8x optical zoom lens, vibration reduction (VR) image stabilization and also SnapBridge connectivity.
 
Since the company was established in 1917, Nikon has cultivated its status as a pioneer of optical technologies. Guided by a corporate philosophy of “Trustworthiness and Creativity,” Nikon provides a range of products and services globally by harnessing advanced opto-electronics and precision technologies.

Just letting you know that the Determining the Age of a Canon Lens Using Serial Numbers and Date Codes page has been updated with serial numbers and date codes for 2017.
 
The Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM Lens was the latest Canon lens I've checked. It bears a serial number starting with "47", indicating that this lens was likely manufactured in the November 2016 timeframe, which is very likely the case. Note: The image above does not show the serial number for the Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM lens.
 
Also note that I continue to get the occassional report of a recently-produced lens having the older-style date code. This table remains available with the new year included in it.

GoPro's Karma drone was recalled in November of last year because several of the drones were dropping from the sky like stones after the UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) lost power in flight. To say GoPro's first venture into the UAV market was "a little bit bumpy" would be un understatement for sure.
 
However, a GoPro CES 2017 press release indicates that the Karma will once again be hitting store shelves later this year, though GoPro is [understandably] a little vague on the re-release details.
 
From the press release:
Karma will re-launch in 2017. GoPro withdrew Karma from the market in November 2016 after a small number of instances of power loss due to a mechanical issue related to securing the drone's battery. GoPro is completing its testing, and in early February, will provide more detail for the global relaunch of Karma in 2017.
With the DJI Mavic Pro still in short supply, every day that the GoPro Karma is unavailable is another opportunity lost to fill orders in the new foldable drone market segment.
