Tenba has announced the Vector Series Bags.
 
"VECTOR is a unique collection of prosumer bags with a striking monochrome design. Every zipper, clip, D-ring, rain cover, lens cloth and piece of fabric is custom-dyed in three of the latest trend colors (plus black) and made to match. Vector bags are extraordinarily lightweight, and constructed of water-resistant fabrics for protection in wet weather conditions. The materials and hardware used in each bag meet the “Crafted Without Compromise” level that has continued to be Tenba’s signature. All bags are available in Krypton Green, Oxygen Blue, Cadmium Red and Carbon Black."

Adorama just began taking preorders for the new Canon cameras and lenses:
 
Canon EOS Rebel T3i / 600D Digital SLR Camera
Canon EOS Rebel T3 / 1100D Digital SLR Camera
Canon EF 500mm f/4.0 L IS II USM Lens
Canon EF 600mm f/4.0 L IS II USM Lens
 
Note that a soon-to-be-fixed glitch is preventing these new items from being ordered without an in-stock item included in the order. If you are having problems, add a GTCL3612 (Giottos Anti-Static Microfiber Cleaning Cloth) to the order - and have it removed by customer service later if you don't want it.

Following is the list of the new Canon gear announced today. These links are to the review placeholder pages where product images, links to the Canon USA and Europe press releases and Amazon.com preorder links can be found.
 
Canon EOS Rebel T3i / 600D Digital SLR Camera
Canon EOS Rebel T3 / 1100D Digital SLR Camera
Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II Lens
Canon EF 500mm f/4.0 L IS II USM Lens
Canon EF 600mm f/4.0 L IS II USM Lens
Canon Speedlite 270EX II
Canon Speedlite 320EX
Canon EF 200-400mm f/4L IS USM Extender 1.4x Lens
 
What we get is a pair of more-advanced Rebel bodies (the T3i gets the Vari-Angle LCD), a tweaked kit lens, a formal announcement for the 500 II and 600 II lenses, a pair of flashes with some unique capabilities, and ... though it is not exactly the Canon EF 500mm f/5.6L IS USM Lens on my Canon Christmas list, the awesome-looking 200-400 f/4L IS with a built-in 1.4x does indeed get us there in a very unique way - and adds zoom. I did not include a Canon EF 200-400 f/4L IS USM Lens on my list, but it is also one of my most-wanted lenses.
 
Here are direct press release links:
 
Canon USA Rebel T3i, T3, 320EX, 270EX II and 18-55 IS II Press Release
Canon EOS Rebel 600D Digital SLR Camera - Europe
Canon EOS Rebel 1100D Digital SLR Camera - Europe

Canon EF 200-400mm f/4L IS USM Extender 1.4x Lens - USA

Canon USA has announced a PowerShot Instant rebate program.
 
Save up to $70 on nine models (with the S95 and the G12 noticeably absent). The rebates are available from February 6, 2011 through February 19, 2011.
 
B&H has the instant rebates in place. Note that the Canon SD1300 IS is only $109.99 shipped after the $70 rebate. Might be a good option for the young kids.
