Do Canons come with bundled lenses?

Sorry if this is the wrong section to ask (or indeed an obvious question) but does anyone know if the imminent EOS-1D C includes a bundled lense in the price?

Thanks!

I don't know for sure, but I doubt it, although sometimes Canon has rebates if you buy a particular body and lens at the same time. As far as I know it's usually cheaper, lower end cameras that come bundled with cheap kit lenses.

So far Canon has always sold it's DSLR's both, bundled with different lenses as kit or as body-only. Except for the 1D and 1Ds series, these have always been sold only as body-only.

Re: Do Canons come with bundled lenses?

Thanks everybody...

One more question - can anyone recommend a good basic lense for this model? Don't mean to offend anyone with this kind of ridiculous question! I know lense selection should be careful and judicious. But am just wondering if a person HAD to stick with one lense, say for example on a desert island, what would would they pick, say within a price range between $500 and $2,500.

When I have been forced to use one lense I have liked going a bit wider.

Any thoughts appreciated - just trying to get a rough figure for a EOS-1D C kit.

In that price range the Canon 24-105 f/4 L IS USM is a descent lens. Great build quality, sharp, optical stabalizer, nice range. Together with the 1D and an optional UV-filter for protection you have a an excellent camera for in a dusty environment.

unless you wanna go the primes way OC.....

Thanks Gabor! Actually I was looking at that lense this morning and I got the impression it was predominantly used for still images. Is it equally good for shooting video?

Or do Canon lenses for stills work equally well for video?

Re: Do Canons come with bundled lenses?

the lens in the promotional material for this camera is the Canon CN-E 24mm T1.5 L F Cine Lens - according to the blurb it "Supports 4K Recording Quality" but it costs nearly 7k...

I am looking for something that supports 4k video but is 2.5k or less :)

Like the 1D X, the 1D C will be packaged by Canon as a body-only box.
