By Canon Rumors | March 18, 2015 | Third Party Lenses

We’ve read through the grapevine that B&H Photo has started shipping preorders for the Sigma 24mm f/1.4 DG Art series lens. There’s no word on stock levels and if all the preorders will be allocated with this initial shipment.

Justin, our lens reviewer is currently using the Sigma 24mm f/1.4 DG Art and we’re hoping for the review some time in April.

Canon EOS 5DS & EOS 5DS R at HKIPP Chai Wan Day in Hong Kong

Canon EOS 5DS & EOS 5DS R at HKIPP Chai Wan Day in Hong Kong

By Canon Rumors | March 17, 2015 | Canon DSLR News

A Canon Rumors reader sent in some thoughts and observations about the upcoming Canon EOS 5DS & EOS 5DS R cameras at an event in Hong Kong.

OBSERVATIONS

  • Sturdy build quality, could be better than the EOS 5D Mark III
  • Viewfinder displays are quite complex
  • As suspected, still running beta software
  • The shutter sound is quite soft
  • Continuous shooting feels slow, but we knew that already
  • Large sample prints looked great

The Canon EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R are not yet available for preorder, but they are expected to start shipping at the end of June.

Ultra Wide Angle Sigma Art Coming? [CR1]

Ultra Wide Angle Sigma Art Coming? [CR1]

By Canon Rumors | March 17, 2015 | Third Party Lenses

We’re told that Sigma is working on an Art series ultra wide angle lens. It’s unknown if this would be a replacement to the Sigma 12-24mm f/4.5-5.6 DG, or an addition to the lineup. With the cost of Canon’s latest EF 11-24mm f/4L, I think it’s safe to assume there would be a market for less expensive version from Sigma with the optical performance of previous Art series lenses.

If true, I wouldn’t expect it to be coming in the near future.

On a side note, we’re told Sigma will restart production of the 24-105mm f/4 DG OS later in 2015.

We’ve been told that there will indeed be a Canon Expo in 2015. The show is held in New York City once every five years in September, and then the Expo usually travels to Paris and Tokyo later in the year. Canon Expo is where Canon shows off all their latest and greatest technologies, some of which end up in consumer products.
