Image quality test results from the Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III have been added to the Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L III USM Lens Review.
We've tested about five copies of this lens and somehow didn't get any of them tested on the 1Ds Mark III. These results are especially useful for backward compatibility when making comparisons with older lenses in the image comparison tool.
This is an amazing lens – I personally bought one.

We mentioned yesterday that B&H had several camera plates for the Canon EOS 6D Mark II available for purchase (although most are on backorder at the moment). However, I forgot to mention a clever design feature of the Kirk L-bracket which allows full functionality of the 6D II's vari-angle LCD screen.
The L-bracket's side port features a pivoting mechanism which enables the side plate to swing out of the way of the LCD (shown in the video above).
B&H has the Kirk L-Bracket for Canon 6D Mark II available for purchase with expected availability in 7-14 days. Note that if you plan on using the BG-E21 battery grip with your 6D Mark II, you'll need to purchase the Really Right Stuff BG-E21 Base and L-Plate Component. In the RRS design, the L-plate can be removed entirely for full access to the LCD.

Although many are still on backorder, you can purchase Kirk & Really Right Stuff plates and L-brackets for the 6D Mark II at B&H and the items will be shipped as inventory replinishes.
Both Bryan and I are big fans of camera L-brackets. Being able to simply loosen an Arca-type clamp, rotate the camera and reclamp to change orientation is extremely convenient. [Sean]
Note: I'm fairly confident that the picture showed for the in-stock Kirk Camera Plate for Canon 6D Mark II is incorrect; the picture shows the L-bracket, but you only receive the bottom (base) portion of the two-piece L-bracket for that price.

From Profoto:
The Profoto A1 might be the smallest flash we’ve ever made, but it’s still built to the same impossibly high standards we’ve set ourselves over the last fifty years.
Our focus with the A1 was to create a flash that delivers a truly high quality of light, which is why it features a round head which delivers light that's both natural and beautiful with a pleasing soft-smooth fall-off, that blends seamlessly with the ambient light.
Thanks to a smart magnetic mount built into the head, light shaping tools and modifiers can be clicked on and off quickly and easily. Within seconds you're being creative with light, shaping it. It also has a zoom function that allows you to make fine adjustments to the spread of light by simply twisting the zoom ring on the head, and for accuracy it has a modeling light built-in to the head – so you can see what you're going to get before you press the shutter.
We made it our mission to make A1 the first on-camera flash that's easy to use from the box. The user interface is simple and intuitive with a large high-contrast display at its center. The less time you spend learning and fiddling, the more time you'll spend shooting. And that's ultimately what counts. Despite its size, or lack of it, the A1 punches above its weight in a good number of key areas.
Battery life is key when a photographer is right in the thick of the action, because the last thing they need to have to stop mid flow to change the batteries. The A1 has its own Li-ion high capacity battery built-in which lasts up to four times longer than AA batteries with no performance fade. So, you can shoot for longer with confidence.
And this is a flash that can keep up with you because it recycles four times faster than other on-camera solutions – that's every 1.2 seconds at full power. Put simply, you'll never miss a shot.
And while it's true to say the Profoto A1 is our very first on-camera solution it's also just as effective off-camera as a standalone unit, and integrated into a larger system of lights. That level of versatility is possible because Air Remote is built-in, which means the A1 offers seamless connectivity with freestanding lights like another A1 or bigger Profoto lights like the B1X.
And with AirTTL you'll get a perfect exposure super-fast. Better still, you can lock the exposure with a single 'click' while still being free to fine tune that exposure in manual, giving you even greater control.
So, this is so much more than our smallest flash yet. This is shooting on the move, shooting with confidence and shooting with light shaping excellence. This is shooting off-camera and for the first time with Profoto, on-camera. This is the Profoto A1 – the world's smallest studio light.
Features A1
  • Round head with soft, smooth and natural fall off.
  • AirTTL and HSS for a beautiful professional image fast.
  • Smart magnetic click-on mount for A1 Light Shaping Tools.
  • 5 dedicated A1 Light Shaping Tools available.
  • LED modeling light integrated to the head.
  • Air Remote built-in.
  • Rechargeable and exchangeable Li-Ion battery.
  • 1.2s recycling time.
  • TTL/MAN switch.
  • Built in motor-zoom with hand control.
  • Auto focus (AF) assist.
  • Large Hi-Res display
  • Support for Canon, Nikon and later for Sony
