Pre-order new Canon MT-26EX-RT Macro Twin Lite

Of Canon lighting interest, they have revealed a brand new Canon MT-26EX-RT Macro Twin Lite with a starting price of $989 and a mid-November 2017 release estimate. Pre-orders are accepted at B&H Photo and Amazon itself and Adorama.

Despite that estimate, there are a couple of listings at Amazon by Beach Camera that say this is in-stock and shipping in a few days. They have the same price and include some free accessories, one bundle with a 128GB Sandisk Extreme PRO SDXC, and another bundle with a Tripod, Kodak Flash and more. This also shows as in-stock at Beach Camera’s own website, but not at their Buydig online-centric website.

I have no way of verifying whether it is indeed in-stock there, so YMMV…
