Canon has bulked out the popular EOS camera range with two entry-level DSLRs, as well as some high-end lenses and flash units.

The EOS 600D has an 18Mp sensor and offers 1080p recording, which can be watched back on its 3in hi-res rotatable LCD.

On the topic of such, the company has launched two super-telephoto lenses perfect for wildlife and sports photography. The EF 500mm f/4L IS II USM and the EF 600mm f/4L IS II USM. Both lenses will be available sometime later this year and will cost £9000 and £11,300 respectively.
