Patent: Tamron 115mm f/1.4 VC

It seems to be a never-ending parade of optical formula patents from Tamron, this time it’s a 115mm f/1.4 VC. This is another fast and unique lens concept from Tamron.

  • Fno = 1.456
  • ω = 10.632

Announcements from Tamron ahead of Photokina should be coming any day now. I suspect most will wait until after the EOS 5D Mark IV announcement and chatter has cooled down.

There Will Be a New EOS M Camera Coming in 2016 [CR2]

There Will Be a New EOS M Camera Coming in 2016 [CR2]

By Canon Rumors | August 22, 2016 | Canon DSLR Rumors

Lost in the madness that is all the new products over the next couple of weeks is the EOS M. There will not be any EOS M announcements for Photokina, which I think is totally understandable. Nothing in the Canon lineup brings about as much hype as a new EOS 5D body.

The good news is that we will see a new EOS M camera and a lens announced in 2016. I suspect we’ll see it before CES 2017 which starts on January 5, 2017 in Las Vegas.

What we know about the coming EOS M:

  • It will be a replacement to the EOS M3, but it won’t be called “M4”. Say hello to the M5.
  • It will go slightly up market from the EOS M3.
  • Don’t expect big ergonomic changes.
  • It will be APS-C.
  • A new lens will be announced alongside it, an EF-M 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS is a good bet.
  • We cannot confirm DPAF or 4K.

That’s all for now, but expect to hear some more over the coming weeks.

By Canon Rumors | August 22, 2016 | Canon Lens Rumors

Pricing for all of the new Canon gear should be leaking out this week ahead of the August 25, 2016 launch day.

The following are the prices floating around in USD for the new Canon lenses.

  • Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L III $2199
    • Shipping will start in October
  • Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II $1099
    • Kits should ship fairly soon after launch, retail version unknown.

We haven’t yet received a confirmed price in the United States on the EOS 5D Mark IV, but we think it’ll be between $3299-$3499 USD.

We’ve heard from one country that the ship date for the EOS 5D Mark IV would be September 9, 2016, but we haven’t been able to confirm that anywhere else.
