DigitalRev Posts Pages for Upcoming Canon Products

By Canon Rumors | July 30, 2016 | Canon DSLR Rumors

DigitalRev has posted product pages for the upcoming Canon EOS 5D Mark IV, EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II and EF 16-35mm f/2.8L III.

I don’t think this is anything more than trying to build some preorder hype for the announcements at the end of August, as here are no specifications on any of the product pages. I do not believe DigitalRev is an authorized Canon retailer (correct me if I’m wrong), therefore wouldn’t be part of any official advanced retailer notice which can happen.

For what you can expect to see from Canon, you can check out our updated Canon roadmap here.

Patent: Tamron 10-24 f/3.5-4.5 VC

By Canon Rumors | July 30, 2016 | Third Party Lenses

The optical  formula patents keep on coming from Tamron ahead of multiple Photokina announcements next month. This time it’s a 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 for APS-C sized sensors.

Patent Publication No. 2016-126280

  • Published 2016.7.11
  • Filing date 2015.1.8
  • f 10.303 15.199 23.483
  • FNO = 3.6 -. 4.1 – 4.6
  • 2ω = 111.70 – 86.59 – 62.07
  • Negative positive and negative positive
  • Anti-vibration (third group)
  • Inner focus (rear group of the first group)

It’s looking like a busy fall for Tamron, and we’re hoping for the same from Sigma.

Canon EOS 5D Mark IV to be 30mp? [CR1]

Canon EOS 5D Mark IV to be 30mp? [CR1]

By Canon Rumors | July 27, 2016 | Canon DSLR Rumors

We’re told that the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV will come out with a 30mp sensor. This is the first time we’ve heard of such a resolution, but it does come from a “retail source”. We’re cautious that it could be a number that was rounded up or rounded down, because the most popular megapixel counts have been 24 and 28.

30mp would be a nice number for a lot of people and put some breathing room between the EOS-1D X Mark II and 5D Mark IV. The 6D Mark II would fit nicely around 24mp.

We hope to hear more soon, and please take this one with a heavy pinch of salt.
