Review – Canon EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM Pancake

Review – Canon EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM Pancake

By Canon Rumors | June 15, 2016 | Canon Reviews

Dustin has completed our review of the very affordable Canon EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM pancake lens for Canon APS-C DSLRs.

Judging by the sales numbers for certain APS-C camera bodies from Canon, there are still a lot of crop sensor shooters out there, which is a great thing. The EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM is a lens all APS-C Canon shooters should have, and at just $149, it’s an absolute steal.

Dustin’s observations:

It is rare that I refer to a lens as a “must own”, but I see no reason for a person that shoots crop sensor bodies (Rebel Series, xxxD, xxD, or 7D/7DII) to not own this lens. This is perhaps even truer if you own Canon’s diminutive SL1 body. The Canon EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM has it all. Extremely compact size, a fairly large maximum aperture of f/2.8, great sharpness at all aperture values, fast focus, and a great, highly useful maximum magnification value of .27x. The bokeh is pretty nice (if a bit busy in some situations), distortion and chromatic aberrations fairly well controlled, and even the flare resistance is quite good. Read the full review

I use this lens quite a bit on my EOS 80D, which is a great combination of size and performance.

Updated Canon 2016 Roadmap

Updated Canon 2016 Roadmap

By Canon Rumors | June 10, 2016 | Canon DSLR Rumors

There has been a lot of new information come out in the last few months about what we can expect from Canon in 2016. I’m just going to give a round-up of what to expect for the folks that missed some things, or are new here (yes, we do get new readers).

EOS DSLR Bodies for 2016:

  • Canon EOS  5D Mark IV (confirmed)
    No other DSLRs are expected from Canon in 2016. We expect the announcement in August, with delivery coming soon after Photokina.

EF Lenses for 2016:

  • Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L III USM (confirmed)
    We expect to see this lens announced some time this month. It looks like the announcement has been moved closer to Photokina.
  • Canon EF 70-300 f/4-5.6 IS II USM (confirmed)
    We expect to see this announced before Photokina in September.
  • Canon EF 24-105 f/4L IS II USM (confirmed)
    We expect to see this announced alongside the EOS 5D Mark IV in August.

EOS M Bodies for 2016:

  • A “prosumer” EOS M body (confirmed)
    We think we’ll get a new APS-C “prosumer” EOS M body some time before the end of 2016.

EOS M Lenses for 2016:

  • Unknown at this time

Cinema EOS Bodies for 2016:

  • Canon Cinema EOS C700 (confirmed)
    We should see this announced the first few days of September.

Cinema EOS Lenses for 2016:

  • Anamorphic Lenses
    We think you’ll see at least one anamorphic lens announced with the Cinema EOS C700
New EF 24-105 f/4L IS Replacement Coming With 5D Mark IV [CR3]

New EF 24-105 f/4L IS Replacement Coming With 5D Mark IV [CR3]

By Canon Rumors | June 9, 2016 | Canon Lens Rumors

We reported yesterday that a new kit lens was coming with the EOS 5D Mark IV in August.

We have confirmed that the kit lens will indeed be an update for the EF 24-105 f/4L IS, which makes a lot more sense for a camera such as the EOS 5D Mark IV.

We have been unable to confirm if the new L lens will support the Power Zoom PZ-E1.

To re-iterate, yesterdays report of a Non L kit lens coming with the EOS 5D Mark IV was incorrect and it will indeed be an L.

We’re told that a new kit lens will be coming with the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV in August. It will basically be a full frame version of the EF-S 18-135 f/3.5-5.6 IS USM (nano USM) and will likely be compatible with the Power Zoom Adaptor PZ-E1. The lens may have appeared in a post from earlier today.

We don’t know the focal length at the moment, but we should find out soon.

More to come…

*UPDATE*

The new kit lens will in fact be an L lens with IS, likely a replacement for the EF 24-105 f/4L IS.

First EOS 5D Mark IV Leak?

*UPDATE 2*

The instagram post has been removed.

We’re also pretty confident that the lens on the camera is a replacement for the EF 24-105 f/4L IS.

*UPDATE*

Here’s the reported “leak” of the EOS 5D Mark IV as claimed by Levi Siver. I’m not sure about this one, as I think we’re still a bit early for the “official” leaks that we saw with the EOS 5D Mark III launch.

IA forum member pointed out the lens hood of the attached lens and that they couldn’t identify it. We do know the soon-to-be-announced EF 16-35mm f/2.8L III has a new lens hood, the EW-88D.

*Original Post*

I’m currently on a game drive in northern Uganda, but I figure is pass on what is claimed to be the first picture leak of the upcoming EOS 5D Mark IV.

You can read about it at EOSHD.

We know the EOS 5D Mark IV will be announced in August, with delivery coming soon after.

I have a few things about the camera that I’ll be publishing soon.
