Review: Canon EF 400mm f/4 DO IS II

By Canon Rumors | April 28, 2015 | Canon Reviews

Bryan at the-digital-picture has completed his review of the Canon EF 400mm f/4 DO IS II lens.

Canon marketing has called the Canon EF 400mm f/4 DO IS II USM Lens “The Portable Super Telephoto Lens”. The Canon EF 400mm f/4 DO IS II USM Lens packages impressive image quality in an ultralight and ultra-small package with autofocus and image stabilization systems that are among the best available. The result is, at a price, an easy to take with you lens that is capable of producing world-class images.

EF 50mm f/1.8 STM Update, Or Lack Thereof

By Canon Rumors | April 27, 2015 | Canon Cinema Lens Rumors

We’re still waiting on the official announcement for the upcoming Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM. We reported earlier this month that would should see the announcement sometime in April, and April is nearing a close. We’ve always found that lens announcements are a moving target and nailing them down is quite difficult.

We haven’t heard any more information about the EF 70-300 f/4-5.6 IS replacement we reported about back in February.

More to come…

A specification list for the EOS 6D Mark II has come about. It’s pretty much the complete opposite of what we posted a week or so ago.

  • 28MP
  • 6 fps
  • ISO 100 – 102400 (expandable to 204800)
  • new AF system (but not the same as on 5DS)
  • 98% viewfinder coverage
  • Single SD card slot
  • WiFi, NFC, and GPS
  • small improvements for video features

The rumor above suggests that Canon wouldn’t release a full frame camera with the same resolution as the Rebel series cameras, which are now at 24mp. We posted that the EOS 6D Mark II would retain its own sensor and would have a lower megapixel count than the predicted 28mp in the upcoming Canon EOS 5D Mark IV.

I personally believe consumers of full frame DSLRs in this day and age understand that not all pixels are created equal. I don’t believe megapixel count is part of the marketing strategies for DSLRs anymore, unless you’re talking about the high resolution 50mp+ camera.

Availability of the EOS 6D Mark II is said to be early 2016.
