An Update on the Canon EOS 6D Mark II [CR3]

An Update on the Canon EOS 6D Mark II [CR3]

By Canon Rumors | March 24, 2017 | Canon DSLR Rumors

There has been an announcement date of April 21, 2017 for the Canon EOS 6D Mark II floating around the web, we have confirmed that this is not accurate.

We’re still hearing late Q2 or early Q3 of 2017 for an announcement and ship date.

I only recall one DSLR ever being announced for NAB, and that was the EOS-1D C, so this shouldn’t come as a surprise.

For the moment, we know that Canon will be announcing the EOS 5D Mark IV C-Log update, along with at least one Cinema EOS lens for NAB 2017.

We’re told that Zeiss will be updating some or all of their CP.2 compact cinema lenses over the coming months. The current CP.2 lineup consists of 11 prime lenses and have fallen behind other series’ of lenses in their lineup.

It would be logical to think Zeiss will be announcing these updates at NAB next month.

Three Canon Lens Masters Pick Their Favourite Lenses

Three Canon Lens Masters Pick Their Favourite Lenses

By Canon Rumors | March 23, 2017 | Canon Lens Rumors

DPReview asked three Canon lens masters at the Utsunomiya lens factory to name their favourite lens designs (as well as their first). One of the responses may surprise you.

  • Masato Okada: Deputy Chief Executive of Image Communication Products and Operation
    Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L USM – “For me I’d have to say the 11-24mm F4L USM, because when launched, it allowed the widest angle possible on a full frame with no distortion.”
  • Kenichi Izuki: Plant Manager
    Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L USM – “My favorite, which I truly remember because it was so hard to design, was the original Canon 70-200 F2.8 L USM non-IS.”
  • Shingo Hayakawa: Deputy Chief Executive of Image Communication and Products Operations
    Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II – “… if I were to narrow it down, my choice would be a lens that came out in 2012: the Canon 24-70mm F2.8L II USM.”

I’m not a lens engineer/designer, but I to have my favourite Canon lenses based on design, usability and performance. For me, my absolute favourite Canon lens is the EF 200mm f/2L IS USM.

What’s your favourite Canon lens?

Upcoming Canon EF-S 35mm f/2.8 M IS STM Will Have Macro Illumination

Upcoming Canon EF-S 35mm f/2.8 M IS STM Will Have Macro Illumination

By Canon Rumors | March 22, 2017 | Canon Lens Rumors

We’re told by a new source that the Canon EF-S 35mm f/2.8 M IS STM is going to have a macro illumination feature like the EF-M 28mm f/3.5 Macro IS STM. We can also safely assume that “M” means macro.

When we first confirmed this lens, we weren’t 100% sure what the “M” meant in the lens description, but I think it’s safe to say this is legitimate and goes along with what a lot of people have been thinking.

The lens is still slated for an announcement on (or around) April 5, 2017.

Thanks for the tip…
