New Canon Tilt-Shift Lenses Finally Coming? [CR1]

New Canon Tilt-Shift Lenses Finally Coming? [CR1]

By Canon Rumors | March 31, 2015 | Canon Lens Rumors

A new report at Northlight suggests that Canon has prioritized the replacement of their “old” tilt-shift lenses, the TS-E 45mm and TS-E 90mm. These upgrades could match up wellwith the EOS 5DS & EOS 5DS R.

It’s also suggested that higher end glass supplies is limiting the introduction of more top end lenses being added to the Canon lineup. Canon does have new manufacturing capabilities, but the increase in production is a gradual one.

I agree with Northlight, and don’t think we’ll see these redone this year, but an advanced announcement is always possible.

EF 11-24mm f/4L: Our First Impressions

EF 11-24mm f/4L: Our First Impressions

By Canon Rumors | March 31, 2015 | Canon Reviews

I’ve been in Scotland for the last 10 days or so and doing a lot of shooting with Canon’s brand new EF 11-24mm f/4L. The main purpose of the trip was for landscape photography, which I figured was a good place to start for our review.

There are a lot of things that make the EF 11-24mm f/4L a challenging lens to use for landscape. First and foremost is not being able to use filters. A lot of the time, especially scenes with wet rocks and water, a polarizer is sorely missed. In Scotland, with the ever changing skies and varied foregrounds, the inability to use graduated neutral density filters is also difficult. A lot of people are fine to do exposure blending, which is not something I’m all that keen on. I prefer one frame for exposure. Currently there is no filter holder available for this lens, but hopefully the folks at Lee Filters are working on a solution for grads and stoppers.
