Where are the Rumors? EOS 5D Mark IV

By Canon Rumors | August 19, 2015 | Canon DSLR Rumors

There’s been a lot of chatter about the EOS 5D Mark III replacement, most of it rooted from a talkative forum member at DPReview. We haven’t played into it, because that sort of detailed information doesn’t come out 6 months before the release of camera, it never has and it never will. Leaks out of Canon has tightened up significantly over the years (my bad), which makes the chanced of such rumors being true, highly unlikely.

There is no imminent announcement for an EOS 5D Mark III replacement and we’ll likely be seeing an EOS-1D X Mark II beforehand. The rumored August 14, 2015 announcement date came and went without a new product from Canon, but we should be seeing something in the next month or so. Please be sure to check sources on posts, we do posts things that aren’t told directly to us.

All that said, the EF 35mm f/1.4L II is the real deal and we should see that shipping before December of this year. Beyond that, the next Canon DSLR is an unknown at this time.

Review: Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 OS Contemporary

Review: Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 OS Contemporary

By Canon Rumors | August 17, 2015 | Canon Reviews

Dustin has completed his review of the Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 OS Contemporary. In his review he compares this lens against Tamron’s own 150-600mm lens.

As others have said, this lens is great value at around $1000 USD and should be on your list of budget friendly supertelephoto zoom lenses.

Sigma’s more affordable ultra-telephoto lens strikes a lot of the right chords.  The Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM C is a handsome lens that is relatively light and hand-holdable while offering great optical performance.  It gives up little to its competition (save perhaps in the autofocus department), while bettering them in some ways in the image quality.  I wasn’t crazy about the manual focus ring, but I also recognize that this is rarely going to be a priority for users of this lens.  While not built or weather sealed to the exacting standard set by the Sport edition, it retains a lot of its handsome looks and even most of its ability to be customized.  It comes with a number of well executed accessories like a nice case, carrying strap, and rubber ring to “finish” the lens with the tripod foot removed.  This is, frankly, a lot of lens for the money, and is a solid pick for those of you looking for an affordable way to get major reach.  Nicely done, Sigma!

Canon EOS 5Ds SD & CF Card Speed Comparison

Canon EOS 5Ds SD & CF Card Speed Comparison

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

Camera Memory Speed has completed their comparison of which memory cards have the fastest write speed with the EOS 5DS. Needless to say, 50mp RAW files are enormous in size and having the fastest card you can inside the camera is important. Also not surprising, is SD cards (*note: Canon doesn’t support UHS-II. thanks m8547) cannot come close to the write speed of a CompactFlash card, as the fastest card was the Lexar Professional 2000x UHS-II 32GB at only 71.8 MB/s.

How they test:

The 5Ds is mounted on a tripod and a remote timer is used for 30 second shooting intervals. A manual lens is used and focused using live view at maximum magnification. The subject is a static test scene under controlled lighting.

A comparison of different test subjects was conducted with the the Canon 5Ds. Using the Lexar Professional 1066x 128GB CF card, the most detailed scene resulted in 101.4 MB/s average write speed (75.6 MB average RAW file size), while a scene with moderate amount of detailed averaged 84.0 MB/s (55.7 MB file size), and with lens cap on 84.0MB/s (45.8 MB file size). The most detailed scene is used for this card comparison test. Read the rest of the article

Below are the 10 fastest cards from their tests.

  1. Lexar Professional 1066x 32GB CF 101.6 MB/s
  2. Komputerbay 1066x 128GB CF 101.6 MB/s
  3. Lexar Professional 1066x 64GB CF 101.5 MB/s
  4. Lexar Professional 1066x 128GB CF 101.4 MB/s
  5. PixelFlash SuperSport 1000X-PRO 128GB CF 101.3 MB/s
  6. SanDisk Extreme Pro 160MB/s 64GB CF 99.9 MB/s
  7. SanDisk Extreme Pro 160MB/s 32GB CF 99.8 MB/s
  8. Toshiba Exceria Pro 1066x 32GB CF 99.6 MB/s
  9. Transcend 1000x 128GB CF 99.5 MB/s
  10. Toshiba Exceria Pro 1066x 64GB CF 99.5MB/s

I found it interesting that a SanDisk card didn’t make the top 5. However, we can’t comment on how reliable the cards in this test are going to be. Although, we’ve only ever had a handful of memory cards fail and found Lexar and SanDisk to perform the same in that regard.
