The new Canon 5DS DSLR duo is the biggest and most expensive new camera of 2015 so far. However, pre-orders are not accepted just yet. Amazon’s estimate says you will be able to pre-order it on 4/30/15. B&H Photo’s page estimates the camera will be available in June 2015. Adorama has a June estimate as well. Needless to say, this is too early, more details and more specifics will become available as we get closer to actual release. In a tech world of near-instant gratification, waiting for months before one can pre-order can feel a bit unusual.
The new Canon D-Rebel T6s and T6i dSLRs already have pre-order deals. If you pre-order one of the Canon T6s kits or one of the Canon T6i kits, within 72 hours after shipment of the camera (shipment, not order), a $50 promotional credit will be automatically applied to your Amazon account. The promotional credit can only be used towards the purchase of these these accessories (16GB or 32GB or 64GB Sandisk Extreme SDHC, AmazonBasics camera bags and tripods). The terms and conditions over there have all the details. As usual, all eligible items must be sold and shipped by Amazon itself, not 3rd-party sellers.
Canon is back with another serious SLR lens, the Canon EF 11-24mm f4L, with a pre-order price of $3000 at Adorama and B&H Photo and Amazon itself.

More eBay Deals action, if you are comfortable with imported (non-USA warranty) double-figure lenses, the new condition Canon 50mm f1.8 II is offered for $85 with free shipping by Red Tag Camera on eBay (99.9%) with a limit of five per buyer. Over 1000 of these primes got sold through this listing. The simplicity of a prime lens and the low price perhaps may make this a low/lower risk import/grey-market purchase.
