Interview With Sigma CEO Kazuto Yamaki

By Canon Rumors | July 15, 2017 | Third Party Lenses

Sigma Canada had a chance to interview CEO Kazuto Yamaki during his visit to Canada.

Some highlights from the interview:

  • Was there ever a Sigma 24-70mm f/2.0 Art lens?
  • Will Sigma consider making CINE Anamorphic lenses?
  • Sigma’s plan for FE mount lenses in the future. Same lenses with E mount, or new designs?
  • What does the future of lens technology hold? Why are they still big and bulky?
  • Some personal questions about him, his fav photographers, what websites he visits, and cameras he regularly shoots with.

We were told back in 2013 that Sigma was working on a 24-70mm f/2 lens and it looks like according to Mr Yamaki, that it was just too difficult to make usable.

We’re told that the next mirrorless camera from Canon will be announced at the end of August. This will be a direct replacement for the EOS M10, and we’re assuming it will be called the “EOS M20”.

While no specifications have been thrown our way, I think we’re likely looking at a toned down version of the EOS M6 in a slightly smaller form factor. I think it’s safe to say it will be equipped with the 24mp sensor that appears in most of Canon’s consumer ILC cameras.

We hope to see the EF 85mm f/1.4L IS announced at the same time.

3 Legged Thing Releases a Low Cost & Lightweight Universal L Bracket

3 Legged Thing Releases a Low Cost & Lightweight Universal L Bracket

By Canon Rumors | July 13, 2017 | Third Party Accessories

3 Legged Thing, the maker of some nice and affordable tripods has released a new universal Arca style L bracket that will fit most Canon DSLRs. I moved to a universal L bracket as I got tired of buying a new bracket with each camera I purchase. This universal bracket will be great for any DSLR that that isn’t equipped with an external battery grip or full size EOS-1D bodies.

The QR11-L is a well thought out design that makes changing orientation from portrait to landscape really quick. All of the ports on your camera should be easily available with the L bracket attached, be sure to check the compatibility information after the break.

The QR11-L will retail for £49.99/$49.99 and will begin shipping on August 1, 2017.
