Or is Canon Rumors once again being scooped by his own readers.
In all fairness there's more of us that there are of him and he did provide us with a forum

In other words.. JPEG just about the same as 70D from 100-6400, maybe 1/3 of an improvement, depends where on the picture you look. I was hoping they would improve noise reduction algorytm for JPEG.
28 mm is quite close to the 40mm I have, I don't know if it's really worth it to carry around two so similar lenses.
I will consider the 24/2.8. Nobody owns the Voigtlander? What about Sigmas?
I wonder how wide a (very improbable) full frame 2 mm lens would be...I cant even imagine. This is what a 6mm lens looks like...a 2 mm lens would probably have to warp back over the camera body
The 6mm lens is a circular fisheye, and for that focal length has to look backwards.
A rectilinear lens can't have an angle of view wider than 180mm, so it couldn't possibly look back.
WEX price £1599, I was expecting it to be £1799 in line with the dollar price now where's me piggy bank
Wow, I was going to say just the opposite. Dollar price is roughly £1125-£1150. So you are clearly happier than I paying almost 40% more than our US friends. Yikes...
Here is a translation from the linked source:QuoteThe continuous shooting speed reduction due to narrowing
Canon EOS system of several, including the adopted electromagnetic diaphragm, continuous shooting speed when you've narrowed down I will be lowered. Even without continuous shooting, release time lag of when you've narrowed down so lowered, It is a specification that anxious. Canon It is a thing of the patent applications that accelerate the narrowing and opening recovery time by two motorized. Reduction of continuous shooting speed by narrowing has been pointed out as disadvantages of EOS, but such concerns I might not.
Pretty bad translation, but it seems to make it clear that this patent has to do with increasing the speed at which the aperture stops down, reducing shutter lag, thereby increasing the maximum potential speed for continuous shooting.
I do not believe this particular patent is related to providing smooth continuous aperture control (which would be valuable for video)...it does indeed sound like a shutter lag related thing.
It's for step-less aperture operation, not AF
One motor (left) for normal stepping aperture in 1/3 stop increments, one motor (right) for smooth step-less aperture change.
More of a video recording gadget than still image.
