No Pre-Orders for Canon 5DS* yet

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.

Pre-order Canon D-Rebel T6s or T6i, get $50 Accessories credit after it ships

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.
