Canon General / Canon Files a Patent for a Bunch of Lenses.
« on: December 16, 2011, 11:48:01 AM »
All at once! Canon has filed patents for a bunch of fast aperture telephoto lenses.

We’ve heard a number of times that Canon will update a lot of current lenses in 2012 and beyond. I think the 50 f/1.4 is the one that is in the most dire need of an update. An 85 1.2L III with a faster AF would also be welcomed. I hope they don’t update the 200 f/2L IS, I already love it and I would be forced to love the next one too at $6K+.

  • 50 f/1.4
  • 85 f/1.8
  • 85 f/1.2
  • 100 f/2
  • 135 f/2
  • 200 f/2

Patent literature, self-interpretation and summary

  • Patent Publication No. 2011-253050
  • Published 2011.12.15
  • Filing date 2010.6.2
Example
Example Focal length Fno Length Lens BF Lens Construction
One 85.00 1.24 126.06 39.13 Nine elements in 7 groups
Two 85.00 1.80 113.00 42.34 Nine elements in 7 groups
Three 100.00 2.00 120.00 42.27 Nine elements in 7 groups
Four 133.30 2.06 158.90 51.86 10 sheets in 7 groups

I'm back to judging tomorrow, there has been a big thing going on with my other venture Lens Rentals Canada. I don't think I've slept in 72 hours as things get restructured and negotiated.

I may sleep tonight. :)

Thanks for the patience, kind words and criticisms.

EOS Bodies / 7D2, 5D3 and Megapixel Insights
« on: December 14, 2011, 11:17:49 AM »
Some insights [NL] mentions we’ll be seeing the 7D Mark II as well as a 5D Mark III by the time Photokina 2012 rolls around next September.

They also go on to mention that if Canon does release a higher megapixel full frame camera (30+ mp), it won’t be the 5D Mark III that gets them. The testing of higher megapixel sensors was also mentioned and it’s said all of this will depend on the “market”.

With all that being said, is it being insinuated that the 5D Mark III would get the same or similar sensor to the 18mp one in the 1D X?

The recent price drops of the 5D Mark II (down to $1999 in the US) I don’t think are a direct precursor to an imminent 5D Mark III announcement.

7D Mark II Absolutely zero information has come my way about a new 7D. What I don’t think will happen is an APS-H 7D. They won’t eliminate the use of EF-S lenses on the body.

I’ve only heard about a 24mp APS-C, and an updated 18mp APS-C sensor. Niether of which there is much information about.

The thread could lead somewhere bad, I will leave it up though. It's important people don't steal photographic works.

This is my first lockdown!

Third Party Manufacturers / Nikon D4 Specs Revealed? 1D X Has Competition.
« on: December 11, 2011, 05:11:47 PM »

*DISCLAIMER

Yes, this is Canon Rumors, but a new D4 probably matters to a lot people that require cameras like the D4 and 1D X.


The 1D X to have competition soon?

Nikon Rumors has posted specs of an upcoming D4. They claim it’ll be announced before CES/PMA in January. The 1D X is no longer alone.


Don’t expect a quick to market product, I’m not sure you can even buy XQD cards yet!



  • 16.2 MP

  • 11 fps

  • 100-102,400 native ISO range, expandable to 50 and 204,800

  • CF + XQD memory card slots! That’s right, the Nikon D4 will have the new Compact Flash XQD memory card slot.

  • Compatible with the new Nikon WT-5 wireless transmitter

  • Integrated Ethernet in the camera

  • Face detection/recognition function that will be working in the viewfinder (maybe some type of a hybrid viewfinder? Nikon had several related patents)

  • Improved video, I have no other details on that but my guess is 1080p/30/25/24 and 720p/60/30/25/24 similar to the Nikon D800

  • Uncompressed video out through the HDMI port

  • Ability to assign the two buttons on the front of the camera to smooth aperture control during video recording

  • Improved 51 AF points

  • AF detection range will go down to EV-2.0 (the D3s went to EV -1)

  • Autofocus system: 9 cross-type sensors that are operational up to f/8
