With the special holiday rebate program ending over the weekend, Canon has a new rebate program in place to take us through mid-December (Nov. 27 - Dec. 17, to be exact). Most of the instant rebates from the mid-November program remain the same; however, there were a few changes.
 
The Good:
 
The Not So Good
 
  • 270EX II: no longer qualifies for $30.00 rebate
* New rebate program date range may not apply to these products
 
Overall, the changes were overwhelmingly positive from a consumer's perspective. Also note that select items still qualify for 13 months of free accidental damage protection (Canon CarePAK Plus).

From Kickstarter:
 
GearEye is a smart gear management system for on-the-go professionals. It enables you to manage your equipment through thick and thin: organization, tracking, and making sure you always have everything you need whether at home or on the job. GearEye is a game-changer for anything from the smallest messenger bag to the largest camera suitcase.
 
The bond between professionals and their work equipment is special: anyone who’s experienced this can tell you that there are few things worse than losing your essential gear. We’ve been there too, and that’s why we created a system to put an end to this problem. Simply place the RFID GearTag on your gear, and voilá! Everything in your bag can now be easily accounted for, with a simple tap on your smartphone.
 
GearEye is more than just a safety net: it enables you to organize your most important equipment into gig specific groups - so that you always have exactly what you need when you need it. This way, you can quickly and easily make sure you have what you need for today’s studio session (not last week’s beach shoot).

Image quality results have been added to the Sigma 12-24mm f/4 DG HSM Art Lens Review.
 
We'll be loading 1Ds III results for this lens soon, but here is the comparison to the Sigma 12-24mm f/4.5-5.6 DG II HSM Lens, the 12-24 Art's predecessor, using the 5Ds R.
 
The Sigma 12-24 f/4 Art Lens vs. the Canon 11-24mm f/4L Lens was the first comparison on my list. All of the facts you need to know are not in yet, but ... would you pay $1,200.00 USD more for the Canon than the Sigma based on this comparison? Let us know what you think in the comments.
 
B&H has the Sigma 12-24mm f/4 DG HSM Art Lens in stock.
