Canon XC15 Coming Shortly?

Canon XC15 Coming Shortly?

By Canon Rumors | August 21, 2016 | Canon Cinema EOS Rumors

There might be a product surprise in store for us in the coming weeks, in the form of a replacement to the XC10. A oddball camera that had far more detractors than affectionate users.

The leak seems to have happened on a Canon New Zealand support pages (here & here). We’re trying to get confirmation on the imminent announcement of such a camera. Nokishita may have also published a SKU for the XC15.

If it was going to be announced, we’d expect it to be announced alongside the Canon Cinema EOS C700 on or around September 1, 2016 ahead of IBC. Be sure to check out our C700 coverage from back in May here.

The most asked questions about the new Canon EOS 5D Mark IV, EF 16-35mm f/2.8L III and EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II are when can I get one? and how much do they cost?

Canon EOS 5D Mark IV

  • We’ve been told  that it will start shipping sometime before October in mid September. As you can see by the image above, the BG-E20 battery grip & 5D Mark IV kits are floating around the planet.
  • We haven’t been able to nail down cost in the United States, but we expect it to be between $3200-$3500 body only.
  • Body price in Canada will be $4299
  • Body price in Europe will be €3799 according to Photo Rumors

EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II

  • We expect this to ship at the same time as the EOS  5D Mark IV. We’ve seen the kits being available before the body only in the past. The kit with the EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II will be more expensive than the EF 24-70mm f/4L IS kit.
  • We don’t see any EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II kits in transit from the image above.
  • We have no information on the ship time or price for the standalone lens. We suspect it’ll be cheaper to get a “white box” version soon after launch.

EF 16-35mm f/2.8L III

  • We’re told that this lens will start shipping sometime in October.
  • Cost is unknown at this time.

We’ll update as soon as we hear more. Keep in mind, ship dates can change with the weather. Though we’re confident this is going to be a quick and successful launch like we saw previously with t he EOS 5D Mark  III.

Lensrentals.com Compares Lenses at 400mm

Lensrentals.com had some fun and tested various lenses at 400mm, some are zooms and others are primes. As you might expect the 400mm f/2.8 lenses came out on top, in price and performance.

From Roger:

I don’t think we really did too much here today except to have some fun and confirm, in numbers, what most people already know. The 400mm f/2.8 lenses, if you can afford one and don’t mind carrying it, are amazing. Canon’s new 400mm f/4 DO IS II is also superb, at least as good as the 300mm f/2.8 IS II with a teleconverter.

Canon’s 100-400 IS II is, from an MTF standpoint, the best zoom at 400mm, but the Nikon 200-500 and both the Sigma and Tamron 150-600s are also really good, far less expensive, and have greater range. The Nikon 80-400 VR II is not quite as good at 400 as the competition. Read the full article at Lensrentals.com

This is a great era in lens design, as it appears to be really hard to make the wrong decision.
