Is it IS or not?
EF-S 24mm has NOT Image Stabilizer.

So someone should correct the first post:

Canon EF-S 24mm f/2.8 IS STM Specifications

Wide-angle lens for Canon APS-C cameras (equivalent to 38mm on a full-frame camera) offers an ultra-slim and lightweight design.

Slimmest and lightest lens of the EF-S series (approx. lens width is 0.9 in, or slightly wider than a U.S. nickel).

I will buy one if  the price under $200.


Wow!  Really F6.3 being marketed as a sports lens?  Maybe on the planet Venus.  Rarely is F6.3 enough to stop sports action.

Rarely? I shoot surf at f8.

It will have 65 AF points, 45 AF points, and 19 AF points

129 AF points? Not bad, Canon. :D

Dear Canon


yeah i know the 10-18 comes with IS.. but still, useless for a wide angle

Useless, why is that? How about the ability to shoot with a lower speed handheld? Want a real word scenario? You are a turist and you are visiting the Palace of Versailles near Paris. You'll need a very wide lens because the space is limited. And you can't use a tripod because there are lots of people and you need to take the pictures quickly. With IS, you can use a lower speed, this means you can use a lower iso, so you'll get less noise.

I wonder if this will be better and cheaper than my Sigma 10-20 f4-5.6....


It's interesting to read data like this, but these "conclusions" are just moronic.

If you want to take a Reuters Best Photo this is what you need: A Full Frame Camera -  with a 16-35 lens, shooting at f/2.8 or f/8 set your ISO at 400 with a single person as your subject, the content should be shocking in some way but a funny picture may also work.


And btw this guy fails at math.

Other than Canon… Nikon, iPhone and GoPro were represented with on picture each.


2 (D3s) +2 (D4) + 2 (D300S) + 2 (D3) +1 (D7000) +1(D700) + 1 (D3100) = 11 Nikon photos

1100D pwns! Love my camera.  8)

Can people on these forums kindly make up their minds on what kit I should buy, because I'm getting sick of the constant opinion changes.

First I lost thousands switching from Canon to Nikon, just to find that Sony is the new "must have". At least I can get further use of my Nikkors until Sony actually manages to release more than a handful of FE lenses.

Lest you think that things have been easier with my mirrorless system, I was quite happy with my Panasonic until Sony NEX came out and everyone said the APS-C sensor stuffed micro-4/3rds. I'd nearly assembled a full kit of E-mount lenses, when Sony suddenly stopped making them and everyone told me that I should buy Olympus! Then Fuji released their X-mount cameras, which was really tempting until the A7R came along and everyone said that anything less than full frame was useless.

I'm now divorced and totally broke, I can't afford a holiday or put fuel in the car. Consequently, my current photographic exploits consist of taking pictures of the outside of my house on a sunny day, then pulling the shadows indoors to show how much dynamic range my camera has. When I get bored of that, I shoot some test charts and wander down to my local cafe to take pictures of the froth on other peoples lattes.   

;D  ;D  ;D

Well at least you take more pictures than most of the people here. :D

Who ever made this decision wanted to sell lots of cameras.  Know what?  They will...

Really? Who will be doing the buying?

People who want the "pro look" (a DSRL) but at the lowest price possible. It's a huge market. 550D? They never heard of such camera. They only know what's shiny new and in front of them in the shelves. Rangefinders? Mirrorless? They don't look pro, so they must suck.
