It's been a weekend full of money-saving deals and we've been working non-stop to bring you the best of them.  With Cyber Monday just around the corner, there are still plenty of opportunities to save yourself a pretty penny on camera equipment!

Thanks to Canon's Double Cashback and Lens Reward promotion, some of its top-of-range lenses have up to £700 off including the impressive Canon RF 28-70mm f/2 L USM lens. 

Whether you're already the proud owner of a Canon camera, have recently purchased one and are looking to expand your lens collection or are holding off making the purchase as you don't know which lens (or lenses) to buy we are here to help you! I am terrible at decision-making - especially when it comes to spending lots of money but sometimes you see a deal that makes that decision for you.

Best 70-200mm

Confession: I hated 70-200 lenses before using this, but it's just so compact at 146mm long that I barely noticed it on the front of my camera! This 70-200mm is a true walkabout lens. To receive this price, apply the voucher code CANON-10 at checkout and claim Canon Cashback after purchase.

This could just be the best 70-200mm lens ever?! While telephoto zooms at f/2.8 are notoriusly heavy, this is so light and compact you could spend a whole day shooting without being too uncomfortable. It's an incredibly versatile lens suited to landscapes, wildlife, portrait or even event photography. The one downside to this lens is that it is just so expensive - but with a £700 saving right now, it makes it that little bit more affordable. 

Best for street photography

The classic nifty fifty is probably one of the most popular lenses in the world adored by digital and analog photographers. Canon's RF mount version is small, lightweight, incredibly sharp and now even more affordable. 

A fast, 50mm prime lens is an absolute must-have for any street photographer but it also works great as a portrait lens too. For lots of people, a 50mm lens will be the first lens with an f/1.8 aperture they own - or at least it was for me and it absolutely transformed my photography. Finally, I was able to take shots with silky smooth blurred backgrounds, sharp in-focus areas and beautiful round bokeh. 

Most versatile

The sheer versatility offered by this lens is something to behold, and it's matched by both build and image quality in spades. A truly super super-telephoto zoom! To receive this price, apply the voucher code CANON-10 at checkout and claim Canon Cashback after purchase.

If you're one of those photographers who like to dabble in lots of different genres of photography, this could be the perfect lens for you. At the wide end, you could just about use it for portraits (although it may look a little odd) but would be great for focussed landscape shots too. At the wide end, it's better suited to bird and wildlife photography or aviation photography (basically anything that's really far away). Not only can you take advantage of Canon's double cashback, you can get an extra £160 off too!

Best wide-angle zoom

Canon RF 15-35mm f/2.8L | was £2,599 | now £1,839.10
Save £500 at Park Cameras (with voucher code and Canon double cashback)

Even wider than the EF version that it replaces, this wide-angle trinity lens may be the best optical performer of the bunch. Perfect for architecture, landscapes, events, and interiors. 

Yes it's big, and yes it's heavy but you cannot beat the image quality of this wide-angle zoom. It's part of Canon's holy trinity of lenses (which also includes the RF 24-70mm and the RF 70-200mm f/2.8) and for good reason - with minimal barrel distortion, image stabilization and low color fringing levels, you won't have to make many edits to your image. 

Best standard zoom

Canon RF 24-70mm f/2.8L | was £2,519 | now £1,767.10
Save £751 at Park Cameras (with voucher code and Canon double cashback)

The workhorse lens that every pro needs, and every enthusiast drools over! This standard zoom covers all the bases and will be welded to the front of your camera. To receive this price, apply the voucher code CANON-10 at checkout and claim Canon Cashback after purchase.

The Canon RF 24-70mm f/2.8L is the true standard mid-range zoom. The Canon RF 28-70mm f/2 variant might appeal to those trying to break away from the mold but this focal range will always be one of my favourites. Even though I shoot with Canon, I've had a go with this lens and it's incredibly fast, delivers stunning images and if I owned it, it'd probably never leave my camera.
