Default Canon Announces Speedlites 320EX and 270EX II and Telephoto Lenses with Eye-watering Prices

<p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/dht/auto/1297093718.usr15670.jpg" /></p><p>Canon also announced a few products to go with the the EF system. The more relevant ones to the site's readership will be the Speedlites 320EX and 270EX II. The former features an integrated LED (even though magnified by a lens, the LED's die looks huge) for video purposes, while both flashes have wireless slave features. They also have the interesting Pocketwizard-like ability to trigger the shutter of a compatible Canon DSLR. They are expected to ship in April for US$250 for the 320EX, and US$$170 for the 270EX II.</p><p>As for the lenses, the new products are the 500mm f/4 and 600mm f/4 L IS II lenses, which will come with the usual 5-digit price tags (or near 5-digit). The third lens is the 200-400mm f/4 IS, which is still being developed. Countering the popularity of the Nikon 200-400/4, Canon also added the trick of integrating a 1.4x teleconvertor. Convenience, or unneeded weight and bulk? You decide (if you are in the market for such a lens in the first place).</p><p><a href="http://www.dpreview.com/news/1102/11020706canonspeedlights.asp" target="_blank">Canon Speedlite 270EX II and 320EX</a></p><p><a href="http://www.dpreview.com/news/1102/11020708canon200400mm.asp" target="_blank">Canon 200-400mm f/4L IS USM Development Announcement</a></p><p><a href="http://www.dpreview.com/news/1102/11020709canon500mm600mm.asp" target="_blank">Canon 500mm and 600mm f/4L IS USM II</a></p><p>Picture of the 270EX II after the break.</p><p><MORE /><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/dht/auto/1297093730.usr15670.jpg" /></p><p>&nbsp;</p>

Those flashes are remarkably pocket friendly for Canon-branded flashes.

Maybe it's time I picked one up...
