The Canon 7D (body only) is now available at a really great price at B&H, but you’ll need to add it to the cart in order to get it at $1,399.95. For those of you that have been wondering on whether to buy the 7D, T2i or 60D, perhaps this may be an extra incentive? You can also get it with a lens for $1,584.95 when you add to cart.

For a short time, the Panasonic GF-1 and 20mm F1.7 are being sold at a pretty steep discount: $649.95! You can help support this site by purchasing yours at B&H or Amazonfor what seems to be a limited time. Myself, I just may pull the trigger on this camera.

LaCie 2TB Grand Hard Disk and Nikon 70-300mm Deals at B&H

B&H has some good deals going on right now.

LaCie 2 TB Grand Hard Disk ($138.99): It seems like hard drive space like this has become dirt cheap now. I remember two years ago or so something like this would cost lots more. As a wedding, event and portrait photographer, I’ve got a similar product in my office. Its exterior is forged from sturdy aluminum, which is both durable and efficient in dissipating heat.

Nikon AF Zoom Nikkor 70-300mm F4-5.6G Lens (@119.95): This is perhaps the lens that many Nikon users upgrade to when they want more zoom range. I’ve tried it before on a friends D90 and it was spectacular for what he paid. It will make a great gift at such a low price-point. For anyone seeking a high quality telephoto zoom lens for portraits and action photography at a very affordable price, the Nikon AF Zoom Nikkor 70-300mm f/4-5.6G Lens is a great solution.
