Leaked: Canon EOS M50 Image & Specifications

By Canon Rumors | February 20, 2018 | Canon DSLR Rumors

The first image and specifications for the Canon EOS M50 have leaked out.

I noticed a few things about this release that really caught my eye.

  1. A new RAW format? I wonder what .CR3 is going to bring us.
  2. DIGIC 8 already? Canon must have made a breakthrough in processing speeds.
  3. New generation sensor? The EOS M50 sensor is 24.1mp, the previous APS-C sensor from Canon is 24.2mp

Canon Broadcast Lenses at the Olympics, and Why They Can Cost Upwards of $200,000

Canon Broadcast Lenses at the Olympics, and Why They Can Cost Upwards of $200,000

By Canon Rumors | February 19, 2018 | Canon Lens News

It’s sometimes hard to fathom spending $12,000 on a Canon EF 600mm f/4L IS II or $45,000 on a Canon CN-E  Canon CN-E 30-300mm T2.95-3.7, but Canon’s broadcast lenses are a whole different animal. Take the $222,000 Canon UHD Digisuper 86 for example (please buy one from my link, because that would be cool).

Popular Science has posted a great article about some of these lenses that can cost well over $200,000. To be fair, there’s not for the general consumer, but NBC apparently have 70 of them in use at the 2018 winter Olympics.

These lenses are manufactured to the strictest tolerances for obvious reasons.

Lens elements are typically ground down from rough glass blanks, and then polished—sometimes by hand—to get rid of imperfections. “We spend a lot more time polishing 4K lenses because imperfections that measure just a nanometer can affect performance,” Read the full article at Popular Science

Canon really does have the full spectrum of lenses available for whatever is required.

Leaked: Samyang XP 50mm f/1.2 EF for EF Mount

By Canon Rumors | February 19, 2018 | Third Party Lenses

Images of a soon-to-be-announced XP Samyang 50mm f/1.2 EF have leaked out.

This lens will be available for EF mount. We don’t see any markings that would suggest this lens is going to have autofocus, so it’s likely going to be similar to the manual focus XP 85mm f/1.2.

It’s possible this will only be for the EF mount.

Which Canon 85mm Lens is for You?

Which Canon 85mm lens is for you?

Kai W breaks down the trio of current 85mm offerings from Canon, the classic EF 85mm f/1.2L II, the brand new EF 85mm f/1.4L IS and the bargain EF 85mm f/1.8.

If we had to choose only one? I think it would be the EF 85mm f/1.4L IS, though I wouldn’t have any problems owning it alongside the other two 85mm options, because they can all fit different shooting situation.
