We reported a few days ago that Canon may be announcing two “professional” lenses ahead of Photokina, along with the EF-M 32mm f/1.4 and a new “kit” lens. Nokishita has uncovered 4 unreleased Canon lenses that have been found at a Russian certification agency. The four unreleased lenses have the following SKU’s: 3045C005AA 2959C005AA 2963C005AA Read more…

By Canon Rumors | June 14, 2018 | Canon DSLR Rumors

Patent: More Stacked Sensor Development from Canon

Patent: More Stacked Sensor Development from Canon

By Canon Rumors | June 14, 2018 | Canon Patents

Canon continues to put R&D into stacked sensors. This latest patent for the technology is quite detailed in its delivery.

According to Canon News:

This patent application is for suppressing the dark current and/or leakage current by using diffusion preventing films surrounding the bonding areas.

This is a very highly detailed patent application, going into a significant amount of diagrams and specifics.  It stands to reason that Canon is heavily investing it’s time in and energy into stacked sensors, and these patents seem to indicate just that.

We’re all hoping for some sensor breakthroughs from Canon for the next generation of DSLRs and mirrorless cameras.

Updated EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II on the Horizon? [CR1]

Updated EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II on the Horizon? [CR1]

By Canon Rumors | June 12, 2018 | Canon Lens Rumors

We’re told that a new EF 24-70mm f/2.8L is on the horizon. The source didn’t know if the update lens would have image stabilization, or if it would be an EF 24-70mm f/2.8L III.

Previous reports peg two new “professional” lenses would be announced for Photokina, and one of the obvious lens possibilities would indeed be a EF 24-70mm f/2.8L replacement.

THe EF 16-35mm f/2.8L III and EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS III releases have updated two of the three “holy trinity” f/2.8L zooms from Canon. While this update could be great, we can’t help but wish an IS version of the EF 24-70mm f/2.8L existed for the people that want it.

Take this with a big grain of salt for the moment and treat the [CR1] rating accordingly.
