More Full Frame Mirrorless Talk, Maybe Some Surprises? [CR1]

More Full Frame Mirrorless Talk, Maybe Some Surprises? [CR1]

By Canon Rumors | May 25, 2018 | Canon DSLR Rumors

We seem to be getting information from new places every week now, so please mind the ratings you’re seeing on our most recent posts. However, there are times [CR1] rumors turn out to have some truth to them.

About a new Canon mirrorless:

  1. We’re told that a full frame mirrorless will be coming in September.
  2. Canon’s new mirrorless will NOT be part of the EOS system, the focus will be on video.
  3. Think EOS 5D Mark IV, but mirrorless.
  4. 4K @ 30/25/24 FPS
  5. Codename begins with Z

Other Information:

  1. New mirrorless lens at Photokina (EF-M 32mm f/1.4?)
  2. New Cinema EOS body coming before Photokina

There’s always the possibility that there are multiple cameras are being developed concurrently, and that the above information only covers one of them.

Take this stuff with a grain of salt, but I find some intriguing ideas above that may fit with more cryptic information we’ve received over the last month or so.

Review: Canon 85mm f/1.4L IS. Is it a Better Option Over the EF 85mm f/1.2L II?

By Canon Rumors | May 24, 2018 | Canon Reviews

Jared Polin has completed his review of the Canon EF 85mm f/1.4L IS, and finds out if this is a better option over the Canon classic, the EF 85mm f/1.2L II.

Personally, I sold my EF 85mm f/1.2L II after using the EF 85mm f/1.4L IS for a few weeks. The advantages of the new 85mm lens such as IS, faster AF, better built quality, and lighter weight were just too much for me to overlook.
