The opening salvo for anyone in photo & electronic sales starts tomorrow in Vegas (the annual Consumer Electronics Show) & already, we have news of a new lens that will excite Canonistas (Nikonians had their fill of new goodies in '09!). In a tit for tat move after Nikon's new 70-200mm 2.8, Canon yesterday introduced THEIR new 70-200mm 2.8 lens, available in February for an undetermined price. What's new? Well, a new optical system with a closer minimum focusing distance & is fully weatherproof! Here's some more info from cnet.com: http://news.cnet.com/8301-17938_105-10425289-1.html We have eyes & ears in Vegas for the rest of the week and he'll post breaking news whenever possible. (Photo courtesy of Canon USA) Mini classes start up again tomorrow night at 7 with DSLR basics, followed next Thursday with Point & Shoot basics. All you folks who got a camera for the holidays & have questions, here's your chance!
