New Canon EF-S Wide Angle Prime Announcement Coming April 5

By Canon Rumors | March 10, 2017 | Canon Lens Rumors

We told you back in January that Canon would be announcing a new EF-S prime lens soon.

We now know the lens is expected to be announced on April 5, 2017 in North America and that it is indeed a new wide angle EF-S prime lens.

Unfortunately we’ve been told two different focal length for this lens and we’re trying to confirm which is correct. We’ll let you know as soon as we know. We’re hoping for a lens around 10mm for APS-C cameras (though that’s highly unlikely).

No EOS 5DS & EOS 5DS R Replacements in 2017 [CR2]

No EOS 5DS & EOS 5DS R Replacements in 2017 [CR2]

By Canon Rumors | March 9, 2017 | Canon DSLR Rumors

We get asked a fair bit about the EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R and whether or not we can expect replacements any time soon. We’re told that we won’t be seeing a replacement for either camera in 2017, but that there is obviously plans for another high megapixel DSLR.

We do think these cameras will likely be replaced by a single model in the second half of 2018.

Canon has shown us a 250mp CMOS sensor as well as a 120mp CMOS sensor DSLR, with a variation of the latter being more likely to end up in a consumer DSLR. We have no information as to what the megapixel count would be for an EOS 5DS Mark II, but it will likely be a significant jump from the current 50.6mp.

Review: Zeiss Milvus 18mm f/2.8 ZE by TDP

Review: Zeiss Milvus 18mm f/2.8 ZE by TDP

By Canon Rumors | March 8, 2017 | Third Party Lenses

Bryan at The-Digital-Picture has completed his review of the Zeiss Milvus 18mm f/2.8 ZE lens. This is a great option for anyone looking for a wide angle prime lens, especially landscape and interior photographers.

From TDP:

If you want the best image quality possible at 18mm, few lenses surpass this one. If you want the best-built 18mm lens, perhaps no lens surpasses this one. The beautifully-designed Zeiss Milvus 18mm f/2.8 Lens reliably delivers greatness and if an 18mm manual focus lens meets your needs, this lens deserves a spot on your short list.

I’ve added the Zeiss Milvus 18mm f/2.8 ZE to my kit as I found the amazing Zeiss 15mm f/2.8 ZE to be too wide at times. I also appreciate the smaller size and the ability to easily use filters on the Milvus 18mm f/2.8.
