Canon will announce an EF-S 35mm f/2.8 M IS STM on April 5, 2017. What we find unique about this announcement is the “M” in the lens description. We’re not sure what that means…

Here are a couple of ideas off the top of my head:

  • Macro mode?
  • EOS M compatible?
  • Leica made it?

Here are the best reader ideas:

  • From GHPhotographyPerhaps M is a designator for macro mode with the integrated LED lights from the EF-M 28mm f/3.5 IS

What do you think?

Availability and pricing are not known at this time, but we don’t have long to wait.

Review: Sigma 500mm f/4 DG OS HSM Sport Lens

Review: Sigma 500mm f/4 DG OS HSM Sport Lens

By Canon Rumors | March 14, 2017 | Third Party Lenses

The-Digital-Picture has completed their review of the Sigma 500mm f/4 DG OS HSM Sports Lens. At $5999 the new Sigma seems like a good deal, until you consider that you can buy a Canon EF 500mm f/4L IS II refurbished from Canon for under $7000 on occasion. I think that alone makes this lens a hard sell to its target audience.

From TDP

The Sigma 500mm f/4 DG OS HSM Sports Lens takes one into the big leagues of sports and wildlife photography at a fraction of the price of the previous options, those by Canon and Nikon.

Overall, this lens is a really nice one. The build quality appears military-grade, ready for heavy duty outdoor use. The features list is about as long as they get and adequate accessories are included. Though some focus shift is present, the image quality coming from this lens – especially when used wide open at f/4 – is ready for a 2-page spread or a wall-sized cutout and the background blur that 500mm f/4 can produce practically cuts out the subject in-camera.

We’re looking forward to seeing more reviews of the latest Sigma supertelephoto lens.

Review: Canon PowerShot G9 X Mark II

Review: Canon PowerShot G9 X Mark II

By Canon Rumors | March 13, 2017 | Canon Reviews

Photography Blog has completed their extensive review of the Canon PowerShot G9 X Mark II, a decent follow-up to the popular Canon PowerShot G9 X.

From Photography Blog

Although owners of the original Canon PowerShot G9 X aren’t going to be too excited by the improvements on offer, the new Mark II does represent a minor step forward for Canon’s most pocket-friendly compact camera, particularly in its operational speed.

In summary, the Canon PowerShot G9 X Mark II adds just enough new features (just) to make it worth considering as a truly take-anywhere pocket camera. Read the full review

After reading the review, it seems the camera is quite good, but you may find more value in the original PowerShot G9 X, especially after its recent big price drop.

The Canon PowerShot G9 X Mark II is now shipping:

First Impressions: Canon EOS Rebel T7i/800D

By Canon Rumors | March 13, 2017 | Canon Reviews

Photography Blog had the opportunity to spend some time with the recently announced Canon EOS Rebel T7i/800D. This camera was announced alongside the EOS 77D DSLR and EOS M6 mirrorless camera.

The Rebel line is always pretty safe and quite a capable performer. It doesn’t look like the EOS Rebel T7i/800D is going to tarnish that legacy.

From Photography Blog:

Given the chance to test the camera in challenging low-contrast light conditions, we can report that our first impressions are very good. Image quality is respectable under tough conditions and excellent when the light entering the camera is maximised.

An excellent feature set in a lightweight body with simple layout means the EOS 800D is likely to entice beginners to further explore the world of interchangeable lens cameras. Read the initial impressions review

The new Rebel is scheduled to begin shipping on March 30, 2017 alongside the EOS 77D and EOS M6.
