New EF-M 85mm f/1.8 IS STM Coming? [CR1]

New EF-M 85mm f/1.8 IS STM Coming? [CR1]

By Canon Rumors | June 16, 2015 | Canon Lens Rumors

We’re told that a new EF-M 85mm f/1.8 IS STM is on the horizon, though we weren’t told when. As with all things lenses from Canon, it’s tough to nail that information down.

I’m not sure if an EF-M makes a lot of sense, perhaps an EF replacement for the EF 85mm f/1.8?

The only other EF-M lens we’ve heard about possibly coming is a new kit 18-55 IS STM.

Review: Canon EOS 5DS R by PhotographyBLOG

By Canon Rumors | June 16, 2015 | Canon Reviews

PhotographyBLOG has completed their review of the Canon EOS 5DS R, which has started shipping in small numbers. They came away impressed with the resolving power of the new 50.6mp sensor and highly recommend the camera.

I suspect we’re going to see 20 reviews over the next week for the EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R, we’ll likely be putting links to those reviews in a single post.

From PhotographyBLOG:

The sheer level of detail that can obtained from the 5Ds and a high-quality lens like the EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM is difficult to ignore once you’ve experienced it, though, so if you can commit both financially and in terms of time to the Canon EOS 5Ds, we’d whole-heartedly recommend it.

SAN JOSE, Calif. — June 16, 2015 — Adobe (Nasdaq:ADBE) today launched a milestone release of its flagship Adobe Creative Cloud tools and services. The 2015 release of Creative Cloud includes major updates to Adobe’s industry-defining desktop tools, including Photoshop CC, Illustrator CC, Premiere Pro CC and InDesign CC; as well as new connected mobile apps for iOS and Android.

In addition, Adobe announced an expanded Creative Cloud enterprise offering that includes enterprise-grade administration, security, collaboration and publishing services for design-driven brands, businesses and large organizations.

Initial Resolution Tests are in on the EOS 5DS & EOS 5DS R

Initial Resolution Tests are in on the EOS 5DS & EOS 5DS R

By Canon Rumors | June 15, 2015 | Canon Reviews

Roger at LensRentals.com has completed his initial resolution tests on the brand new Canon EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R camera bodies.

The cameras were tested with the Zeiss 21mm f2.8, EF 50mm f/1.4, Zeiss 85mm f/1.4 Otus and Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II. As LensRentals.com found, the EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R outresolve the Canon EOS 5D Mark III without much issue, although the differences do vary depending on the lens.

Summary from LensRentals.com:

Just as it was the Nikon high resolution cameras were released, it will take months of testing and photographer experience to determine which lenses do exactly what with the new cameras. But it’s not a critical thing to know at first. Every lens will provide better on the new cameras, at least in the center of the image. How much of a difference will range from noticeably better, to “wow” depending upon the lens, type of photography, and subject matter.

There are many other things that are going to be as, or more, important to the photographer than absolute resolution. But absolute resolution is always a good thing. And these cameras certainly deliver phenomenal resolution. Read the full article

Review: Canon EOS 5DS R by Amateur Photographer

Review: Canon EOS 5DS R by Amateur Photographer

By Canon Rumors | June 15, 2015 | Canon Reviews

Andy Westlake at Amateur Photographer has completed his review of the Canon EOS 5DS R camera body. They came away quite impressed by the image quality and especially the detail available when using good lenses.

A lot of people are wondering about the dynamic range from the production camera, and Amateur Photographer measured it at 12.4 stops at ISO 100, with performance decreasing beyond ISO 400.

There’s little doubt that the Canon EOS 5DS R is one of the most impressive cameras we’ve ever seen. With its 50.6MP sensor, robust build, and reliable metering and autofocus, it’s sure to become a favourite with working photographers for whom ultimate resolution really matters. Indeed, with 20% higher linear resolution than 36MP cameras, it lays down the gauntlet to Sony and Nikon to play catch-up again, although it would be naive to expect this to take long.
