Preorders are now live for the newly announced Canon EOS 80D, EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM, Power Zoom Adapter PZ-E1 and Directional Stereo Microphone DM-E1.
Product images (including comparisons) and charts have been loaded on the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II page and much more information will be coming soon.
Links to the specifications, press release and preorder opportunities are also available on this page. Here is a comparison between the 1D X Mark II and the 1D X.
If this lens is on your wish list, you may want to sit down before gazing upon the unknown-until-now price. To put it mildly, it is not insubstantial.
Can't wait for the press release? B&H has a brief preview of the lens on Explora.
Preorders are now live for all the newly announced gear:
Canon EOS M3 Mirrorless Digital Camera
Canon EOS M3 Mirrorless Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens
Canon EOS M3 Mirrorless Digital Camera with 18-55mm and 55-200mm Lenses
Canon EF-M 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM Lens
Canon EF-M 55-200mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM Lens
By the way, you might want to check out the MTF chart for the new 35L II – it's impressive!
Below you can see the 35L on the left and the 35L II on the right.
SIGMA 24-35mm F2 DG HSM | Art F/NIKON is scheduled to start shipping towards the end of this month.
Note: Nikon mounts do not have an aperture ring.
Some of the retailers were a little slow in getting the Canon Speedlite 430EX III-RT preorder links up this morning, but most are now live.
B&H has the Rode VideoMic Pro with Rycote Lyre Suspension Mount available for preorder with free expedited shipping and an expected availability date of June 15.
B&H has the Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Contemporary Lens available for preorder.

Tamron formally announced the 15-30 VC earlier today, but omitted the price in their press release. The price is now confirmed at $1,199.00 USD and B&H confirms the initial ship date as Fri, Jan 30th 2015. With B&H stating "ship beginning" and Tamron specifying "Gradually launching", I'm guessing that initial inventories are not going to meet demand for this lens. Preorder ASAP if you want to have a chance to get this f/2.8 VC lens anytime soon.
