Canon has made a habit of bombarding us with product releases simultaneously.  Much like the last time in Sep 2010 I have decided to a wrap up as an index to all the new information about these new products.

Canon 500mm & 600mm

The Canon 500mm f4 L IS II and 600mm f4 L IS II have completed the development stage and are now scheduled for release in the coming months. For me the key improvements here are the weight reductions with the 60omm seeing a nice 27% reductions equivalent to 1.4KG and the 500mm seeing a 17% reduction.  You can read a full press release and more information with photos HERE.

Canon 200-400 f4 L IS with built in 1.4x teleconverter !!!

This is probably the most exciting lens I have EVER heard about.  Finally something to combat the venerable Nikon 200-400 f4  but this one has a trick up it’s sleeve.  A built in 1.4x teleconverter.  The first type of lens like this in the world. WOO.  It’s due to be available before the end of 2011.  All the info we have right HERE. ALSO I have written a further post about this lens RIGHT HERE with even more details and thoughts.

Canon 600D

New 18MP Canon 600d /T3i featuring full HD video recording and 3″ articulating LCD screen just like the 60D.  You can see more photos and read all about this camera right HERE.

Canon 1100D

New 12MP 1100D featuring 3fps shooting speed, 2.7″ screen and limited HD video recording.  You can see more pics and read about this one right HERE.
