Review: Canon EF 24-105 f/3.5-5.6 IS STM

Review: Canon EF 24-105 f/3.5-5.6 IS STM

Bryan at the-digital-picture has completed his review of the brand new Canon EF 24-105 f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens.

From TDP
“As it stands, the Canon EF 24-105mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens is a nice lens overall. The size and weight of this lens are easy to handle for long periods of time and the lens shape is comfortable to use. For a moderate price, the 24-105 STM covers the full frame image circle with very good image quality. The modern STM AF system gets the job done nicely and the image stabilization system makes sure that camera motion blur is not detracting from that image quality. This is a good value lens.” …. Read the full review

High Megapixel Camera Coming in 2015 [CR3]

High Megapixel Camera Coming in 2015 [CR3]

We have confirmed that a high megapixel camera is coming from Canon in 2015 and it will be around 50mp. The camera will not be an EOS-1 style body, so don’t expect the price to be above $4000.

We have yet to confirm when in 2015 the camera is coming, as the exact date may be unknown to Canon at the time of writing this.

More to come once more is confirmed.

Some of what was in this previous post has been confirmed as far as resolution and body style.
