Sony FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM OSS.
Canon EF 70-200mm f/4 L USM.
Updated: Canon 70-200mm f/4 L USM
I updated my page to modern broadcast standards. This is a $599 bargain, with great optics and construction quality, including a fluorite element, at a low price but with no image stabilization. This is a lens for people who use a tripod or shoot in good light and don't need IS and want the smallest, sharpest lens they can get.
Deal: Convergent Design Odyssey 7Q+ OLED Monitor & Recorder, HD/2K/UHD/4K Recording over HDMI or SDI: $1,495, was $1,795.
Deal: Atomos Shogun Studio 4K: $2,495; was $3,495. It's a 7.1" Shogun Studio 4K HDMI/12G-SDI HD Monitor & Recorder.

Sony A9 and 24-70mm f/2.8 GM.
NEW: Sony A9 Review.
NEW: Sony A9 User's Guide.
I'm impressed; the A9 is better than the hype. It silently shoots at 20 FPS, and does it with superb autofocus. It's a new chapter in photography.
I love how Sony is actually innovating. After seeing mostly devolution from Nikon as they've been fading away the past few years, I love seeing a company take a problem by the horns and innovate the heck out of it.
The A9 has a new kind of sensor that lets them pull images off the sensor much, much faster than ever, also giving a live EVF view that doesn't stutter or even need to blink as we shoot.
For high-speed shooting, there is nothing like the A9 — and it only costs 2/3 of what the slower, louder pro DSLRs do.
Sale: MacBooks on Sale.

Help me help you
I support my growing family through this website, as crazy as it might seem.
If you find this as helpful as a book you might have had to buy or a workshop you may have had to take, feel free to help me continue helping everyone.
The biggest help is when you use any of these links when you get anything, regardless of the country in which you live. It costs you nothing, and is this site's, and thus my family's, biggest source of support. eBay is always a gamble, but all the other places always have the best prices and service, which is why I've used them since before this website existed. I recommend them all personally.
Thanks for reading!
