During the month of April, get a free Pro Speed Belt with the purchase of a Think Tank PhotoStreet Walker Pro or Think Tank Photo StreetWalker HardDrive backpack. Here is more from Think Tank Photo:
 
Just in time for Spring, Think Tank Photo announces a special offer on their popular StreetWalker™ backpacks. When you buy one of Think Tank’s spacious and comfortable StreetWalker® Pro or StreetWalker® HardDrive backpacks by April 30, 2012, you will receive a padded Pro Speed Belt™ for free!
 
The Pro Speed Belt makes the StreetWalker backpacks even more comfortable and provides greater support for the weight on your back. This padded belt also allows you to attach Think Tank’s modular bags to the belt line. In doing so, you will have quick access to your lenses or accessories instead of having to take the backpack off to retrieve your camera gear.
 
With Think Tank’s StreetWalker backpacks’ slim vertical profile, you can navigate crowded places while still being able to access professional photographic equipment. The backpacks include a monopod/tripod mounting system, a contoured harness and air channel, and lots of pockets and organizers. Women in particular will appreciate the StreetWalker’s very narrow and vertical profile, especially when combined with the shoulder harness design.
 
StreetWalker Pro
 
Holds most 400 f2.8 lenses with a pro size DSLR camera body attached or a pro size DSLR and 70-200 2.8 attached. Lens hood can also remain attached in shooting position. Bottom front pocket can be used to carry a tripod or monopod. A pop out tripod cup is built in for carrying a larger tripod. Removable seam-sealed rain cover included.
 
StreetWalker Harddrive
 
Holds most 15” laptops. Carry a pro size DSLR and 70-200 2.8 attached with hood in position or a Nikon 400 f2.8 attached to a pro size DSLR body. Bottom front pocket can be used to carry a tripod or monopod. A pop out tripod cup is built in for carrying a larger tripod. Removable seam-sealed rain cover included.
Just received word from Adorama that the Tokina, Norman and Speedotron rebates have been extended through June 30th.

Reikan has been working on adding Canon EOS 5D Mark III compatibility to their Focal software and shared some information on their Facebook page on Friday.
 
Especially interesting to me was this paragraph:
 
"The AF consistency on the 5D Mark III is the *best* I have seen on any camera I've tested with (which is quite a few now!). And it's better by quite a long way - only a few % deviation across 20 shots compared to, say, the 1Dmk4 which deviates by 10-15%."
 
I'm still giving AI Servo a good workout, but the 5D III's One Shot AF has been very impressive. (thanks John)

This is a great starter camera for the kids - or for adults.
B&H has apparently been told by Canon that the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8 L II USM Lens expected initial shipment date of 4/17/12 is not going to be met. No new delivery date has been provided. (thanks Jacob)
 
A CPS rep has indicated that July is now the expected 24-70 L II arrival month. (thanks Dan)
