EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS-b Images Leak & a New Kit Lens

The weight is in the panasonic G3 class - amazing. And the lens mount looks h-u-g-e!

Yeah, here's a comparison to the other smallest Rebels of the past (XTi and XS), sorry I was too lazy to resize the pictures:

EDIT: On the opposite side of the spectrum, here it is in comparison to the EOS M and EF adapter:


Looks pretty much like an EOS-M with a prism housing - size wise.

Pretty good value for the money, I'd say.

As small as it is, what this camera needs is a 20mm 2.8 ef-s pancake as a companion lens.

+1. I almost ordered an EOS-M from BB at $549 yesterday. If this camera in live view operates like the EOS-M and has the option of faster operation with the mirror down it might be a winner. But I agree it needs a small fast prime. a 20 or 22mm pancake would be perfect.

Well, the rumored small DSLR was specced with Digic 5. Unlikely they'd announce a powershot with a more advanced processor at the same time. So I'd guess one or the other is an error.

But then, what do I know.

I've said this before. Although bulkier and heavier, I appreciate the hood setup on the old 24-70 for moving around without a lens cap on. When you bring the barrel back to 70mm there's a lot of protection there. And when the barrel is extended, it's all inside the hood.

Not so with the new lens, where the barrel has no protection at all when extended. If I knock up against something with the old lens, or drag it through the brush, nothing touches the lens itself.

Just my preference, I guess.

Picked up a 17-40 yesterday with the $100 discount. Less than $200 more than they're going for on eBay.

So...putting your lens cap on might cause it to not be able to AF without taking the lens off and on?

Yeah, that's something that shouldn't have made it past QC testing.

True. It's happened to me putting the lens cap back on. It's not hard to get in the practice of retracting the lens first, though. And you don't have to remove the lens just rotate it a bit and re lock it.

I stil love the lens.

I'd like to know whether the new EF-M lenses will fit on a DSLR.  The 22mm F2 would be great on a crop body.

I would think not. The lens would have to be inside the lens mount on the camera due to the shorter mount to sensor distance. That's why the adapter for EF lenses.

I haven't read all the posts, but I'm going to predict the new kit lens will be an EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM.

STM maybe?

Not sure I understand the point of having the pancake be larger (with adapter) on a mirrorless than it is on a 5D. But then, I'm sure the aim is to sell the lenses with the new mount.

Mine starts with 43. Guess sometimes it pays to wait.

How the heck do you cancel an order at B+H??? I've logged in and am looking at my order but there isn't an option shown to cancel it...

Call or email.

My local Best Buy shows it available in-store as well, may do the same.

That's what I did. One of the Best Buys near me had one on Monday. Cancelled my pre-order with a US retailer who still shows it as out of stock.

Oh my. Not again. One of my dream lenses.

At least the 40mm pancake is cheap. This one will not be. But I won't be happy until I have it.

Please give us a report. Thanks

Will do.

It might be in stock over here but have you noticed the price we have to pay? 229 quid??? With todays exchange rate it gets to $355 compared to $199 preorder price in the US...A slight rip off?

Total rip. We've been eating it the past few years with the Euro being stronger than the buck, given the EU economic issues that didn't make much sense, but this is worse with unequal base price.

That's how I feel when I order a 20 pound item from West Ham's online store and pay 30 pounds shipping. Over $80 US. But I love my Hammers merchandise.
