The PowerShot Point & Shoot cameras are, as usual, front-loaded in the results, so work your way deeper into the results to find many Canon DSLR cameras (including the EOS 5D II and the EOS 7D) and lenses available
 
Expect like-new gear with a 1 year warranty.

ISO 12233 Resolution Chart sample crops have been added to the Zeiss 21mm f/2.8 Distagon T* ZE Lens Review page.
 
I'm traveling in the Southwest USA right now. I wanted to know how this lens performed before taking it on an important photo trip. This is an impressively well-built (MF) lens with image quality to match.

Canon has posted EOS 5D Mark II Firmware Version 2.0.7
 
This firmware update (Version 2.0.7) incorporates the following improvements and fixes.
 
1. Fixes a phenomenon in which the aperture exhibits abnormal movement when shooting movies in manual exposure mode and Aperture Priority AE (Av mode) using some Canon lenses (such as macro lenses).
 
2. Fixes a phenomenon in which the exposure level shown in the LCD panel differs from what is shown in the viewfinder when shooting still images in manual exposure mode.
 
3. Fixes a phenomenon in which the Wireless File Transmitter (WFT-E4 or WFT-E4 II) may not automatically power off when used for FTP transfers.
 
These phenomenon only occur with the Version 2.0.4 and Version 2.0.3 firmware.
 
The Version 2.0.7 firmware being released this time is for cameras with firmware up to Version 2.0.4. If the camera's firmware is already Version 2.0.7, it is not necessary to update the firmware.

Adobe Labs has posted Adobe Photoshop Camera Raw 6.1 Release Candidate.
 
Release Notes:
 
Newly supported camera models include the Canon EOS 550D (Digital Rebel T2i/ EOS Kiss X4 Digital)
 
Camera Raw 6.1 includes new lens correction functionality that can apply profile-based corrections to accommodate geometric distortions, chromatic aberration and lens vignette effects. Manual corrections for geometric distortion as well as vertical and horizontal perspective transforms are also available. A handful of lens profiles are included for automatic correction and more can be created by the community with the Adobe Lens Profile Creator.
 
This release addresses a bug on the Mac platform that could cause Photoshop CS5 to quit unexpectedly when opening a file in the Camera Raw 6.0 plug-in.
 
This release contains performance enhancements designed to improve the responsiveness of the controls and the scrolling mechanism relative to Camera Raw 6.0.

The Vignetting Comparison Tool has been updated. The biggest change is that the test results have been regenerated and output at a larger contour results image size. All images are larger, but APS-C images are now shown full-size as well. Full frame lens results will delineate the APS-C field of view via a superimposed frame.
 
The ISO 12233 Chart Resolution Comparison Tool has also been tweaked - primarily to move the sample images higher on the page (for less scrolling).
