Review: Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L via DXOMark

Review: Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L via DXOMark

By Canon Rumors | July 21, 2015 | Canon Reviews

DXOMark has completed another Canon lens review, and this time it’s the EF 11-24mm f/4L.

From DXOMark

While traditionally strong in its telephoto lineup, Canon has always been rather weak in offering a range of ultra-wide-angle lenses. When introduced a few years ago, theEF 8-15mm f4L USM Fisheye zoom helped redress the balance, but it didn’t go far enough. Now with this new lens, Canon has proved it can compete with its long-term rival Nikon as well as with new challengers, such as Sigma, who offer some very specialized models at accessible prices. Sure, the EF 11-24mm f4L USM lacks the fast f2.8 aperture of the Nikon, but Canon traded that for wider coverage and didn’t make any concessions with image quality. Even the price is relatively accessible… Read the full review

A New L Zoom is Coming [CR2]

A New L Zoom is Coming [CR2]

By Canon Rumors | July 21, 2015 | Canon Lens Rumors

We were told previously that the next L lens would be a prime, and it looks like it’ll be the EF 35mm f/1.4L II. We expect it to be announced on August 14, 2015 if the announcement date rumors are true.

Now we’re told the next L lens will be a fast zoom (most likely f/2.8), but not until early 2016. An EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II replacement is the odds on favourite at present. Prototypes of an EF 24-70mm f/2.8L IS exist, but whether or not it will become a product anytime soon is anyones guess.

While the source was confident that’s what we’d see, they did say it was possible a development announcement for a new supertelephoto could be on the horizon. While there’s lots going on in development of a new long focal length lens, there is nothing imminent.

More to come…

Patent: Canon EF 600mm f/4 DO IS

Patent: Canon EF 600mm f/4 DO IS

By Canon Rumors | July 20, 2015 | Canon Patents

A lens we’d all like to see happen has appeared in a patent, a 600mm f/4 DO IS. This isn’t the first time we’ve seen a patent for DO lens with a longer focal length than 400mm.

Patent Publication No. 2015-11171 (Google Translated)

  • Published 2015.1.19
  • Filing date 2013.6.28

Example 2

  • Focal length 588.30mm
  • Fno. 4.12
  • Angle of view 2.11 °
  • Image height 21.64mm
  • Lens length 397.80mm
  • BF 2.02mm
  • Positive ShiboTadashi
  • Inner focus
  • Vibration control

Canon recently updated the 400mm DO lens and solved a lot of the issues some photographers experienced with the first one. If a 600mm variant could cost less than a house, there’d be a pretty good market for it I think.

Review: Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L by photozone

Review: Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L by photozone

By Canon Rumors | July 19, 2015 | Canon Reviews

photozone has completed their review of the Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L, the worlds widest lens for full frame DSLRs. This is probably the first review I’ve seen for the lens that isn’t completely positive and points out some real world weaknesses. While it’s a unique and excellent performer, photozone did find their share of faults.

From photozone:

The center quality is nothing short of outstanding straight from f/4 and throughout the focal length range. However, the outer image region isn’t all that hot at 11mm and especially at max. aperture and the high level of lateral CAs doesn’t help either here. Moving on the 14mm and 18mm the results are much improved with good results even in the extreme corners. And let’s be honest – most will use the middle range more often than the extremes on this specific lens. A decent scene composition is already very difficult at 14mm or 18mm and you will need to get used to having 11mm at hand as a new option really. The 24mm setting is a bit worse again but it remains quite good when stopped down a bit… Read the full review
