Further Confirmation of Canon EOS 5D Mark IV Launch Prices

Further Confirmation of Canon EOS 5D Mark IV Launch Prices

By Canon Rumors | August 24, 2016 | Canon DSLR Rumors

Further confirmation of pricing of the EOS 5D Mark IV has come ahead of tomorrow’s announcement of all the new products.

Canon EOS 5D Mark IV: $3499 USD | $4299 CAD | €3700 EUR

The USA price is the exact same price that the EOS 5D Mark III launched at. Both the Canadian and European prices are significantly higher due to currency changes we assume.

The good news is shipping will begin within a few weeks of the announcement.

Patent: Tamron 115mm f/1.4 VC

Patent: Tamron 115mm f/1.4 VC

By Canon Rumors | August 23, 2016 | Third Party Lenses

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.

Patent Publication No. 2016-151661 (Google Translated)

  • Published 2016.8.22
  • Filing date 2015.2.17
  • f = 113.000
  • Fno = 1.456
  • ω = 10.632
  • Tamron patent
  • Positive and negative positive
  • Inner focus (the second group)
  • Vibration proof group (one of the group)

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.
  • 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.
