For a recap of some of the newly announced and newly released products, Adorama has created the New in May summary page. Some items on that page are in-stock, some are in pre-order, some are on sale.
Adorama also appears to be experimenting with a new design on their product pages, YMMV if you see it (web experiments are often spread out randomly or based on OS/browser/viewport combos online, Amazon constantly does this to the point of frustration), here’s a screenshot:

Needless to say, there are plenty of Canon APS-C options out there, especially if you factor in the refurbished ones as well, so there are plenty of choices and choice-headaches 🙂
Two-lens bundles in a manufacturer box are the Loot Crate equivalent of photography. Okay, not quite that, but Canon’s new 2-lens bundle of the Canon EF 17-40mm f4L USM AND the Canon EF 50mm f1.4 USM is now on sale for $849 with free shipping at Adorama. On their own, the two lenses go for $750 and $330 respectively, making it a value play if you need/want both lenses, or don’t mind gifting/selling/trading the one you don’t want.
