More information about the upcoming Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L II has appeared over at DCI.

  • Pricing is rumored to be about 275,000 yen, which translated to nearly $2300 USD, though these conversions are rarely accurate for a North American price.
  • The lens should start shipping in the middle of October 2015.
  • New techniques used for the aspherical lenses.
  • The BR Lens is Blue Spectrum Refractive Optics. Which will refract the light in the blue spectrum. This should help control chromatic aberrations.
  • There looks to be new techniques used for weather and dust sealing, as well as increased resistance to impacts. This may be the most durable lens Canon has made yet.

Patent: Canon Tilt-Shift Adaptor for All EF Lenses

Patent: Canon Tilt-Shift Adaptor for All EF Lenses

By Canon Rumors | August 25, 2015 | Canon Business General

Photography Bay has found a patent application that shows a tilt-shift adaptor that would work with all of Canon’s EF lenses.

From Photography Bay:

First off, the Canon Tilt-Shift Adapter has its own CPU inside and no optics. But it works hand-in-hand with the Canon EOS body and EF lenses to not only serve as a pass-through for communication but to also take on some processing burdens to make tilt-shift work on different cameras and lenses. Additionally, there are motorized drivers inside of the adapter that can drive the shift and tilt axes using controls on the camera (or the adapter itself). Read the full breakdown of the patent

This would be one highly sought after adaptor if it ever gets made and works like we’d want it to.
