Comparison: Tamron 70-210mm f/4 Di VC,Canon 70-200mm f/4 IS II & Nikkor 70-200mm f/4 VR

By Canon Rumors | July 16, 2018 | Canon Reviews

The folks at DPReview have compared the Tamron 70-210mm F4 Di VC, Canon 70-200mm f/4 IS II & Nikkor 70-200mm f/4 VR to figure out if you would be happy with the Tamron offering over the great and more expensive Canon and Nikon branded 70-200 f/4s.

Comparing the EF 70-200mm f/4L IS II to the Tamron 70-210mm f/4 VC was a pretty easy comparison, if you can afford it, the Canon is the much better lens. Interestingly, it wasn’t as cut and dry with Nikon, as the Tamron performed very favourably against the much more expensive OEM lens.

From DPReview:

70-200mm f/4 zoom lenses may not get as much attention as their faster f/2.8 siblings, but for many photographers these lenses hit the perfect sweet spot of price, performance, and weight.This week, Chris and Jordan go to the Calgary Stampede with pro photographer Kyle Marquardt to shoot the Canon 70-200mm f/4, Nikon 70-200mm f/4, and Tamron 70-210mm f/4. Watch the episode to find out what they think.

At Least Two Big White Lenses Coming Ahead of Photokina [CR3]

At Least Two Big White Lenses Coming Ahead of Photokina [CR3]

By Canon Rumors | July 15, 2018 | Canon Lens Rumors

We’re told at least two new “big white lenses” are coming ahead of Photokina 2018. We’re not sure at the time of writing this what the new lenses will be.

Will we finally see the EF 600mm f/4 DO IS?

We weren’t expecting new big white lenses until 2019, but we may be getting a year long rollout of updated supertelephoto lenses. Optically, I’m not sure how these lenses can get much better, but they could certainly use some weight reduction in light of Nikon and Sony’s lighter offerings with certain supertelephoto lenses.

Canon’s First Full Frame Mirrorless Won’t Have the Exact Same Sensors as the EOS 5D Mark IV. [CR2]

Canon’s First Full Frame Mirrorless Won’t Have the Exact Same Sensors as the EOS 5D Mark IV. [CR2]

By Canon Rumors | July 13, 2018 | Canon DSLR Rumors

It’s rumoured that the upcoming full frame mirrorless camera from Canon will have a 30.4mp sensor, which is the same resolution as the EOS 5D Mark IV. It’s also been said that the camera will be an “EOS 5D Mark IV without a mirror”.

We’ve now been told by a couple of people that this will not be the case. The 30.4mp sensor (which we haven’t confirmed with certainty) will be “very different than what is found in the EOS 5D Mark IV”. We would expect as such, as marketing a new mirrorless camera with a 2 year old sensor would be extremely difficult and would give a presumption that the camera would be “dead on arrival”. Simply removing a mirror from a DSLR that one might actually own isn’t the kind of sales pitch that most Canon shooters would embrace. In an ideal world, Canon would like you to have both cameras in your kit.

We’re also told that the camera will have an articulating screen, which isn’t found on the EOS 5D Mark IV as well as the latest DIGIC processor. Dual SD card slots are also highly likely. One source has claimed that the camera will have DPAF 4K (pretty obvious), but that the crop will be “significantly different” than what is found on the EOS 5D Mark IV.

We have an update on an announcement date. We’re told that Canon will have announcements the second week of September from a very good source, this contradicts the previous post that we’ll see announcements in the first week of the month. It is highly possible that Canon will have multiple announcements ahead of Photokina, as we’re expecting a lot of cameras and lenses to be announced around that time. Photokina begins on September 26, 2018.

Please take all of this with a grain of salt, as the information coming in is quite vague.

The Canon EOS 5D Mark IV bundle is still live starting at $3099 (Reg $4113)
