Multiple New Diffracitve Optics Lenses Coming from Canon in 2018 [CR2]

Multiple New Diffracitve Optics Lenses Coming from Canon in 2018 [CR2]

By Canon Rumors | September 14, 2017 | Canon Lens Rumors

We learned about the development of the EF 600mm f/4 DO IS way back  in September 2015 at the Canon EXPO in New York City.

We’re being told that one or two additional DO lens is being developed alongside the EF 600mm f/4 DO IS and the plan is to announce them in late August 2018 ahead of Photokina 2018 in Cologne, Germany.

We’re not sure how well the EF 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 DO IS sold, but I haven’t seen too many of them in peoples kits over the years. A replacement doesn’t make too much sense to us. It definitely wasn’t a bad lens, but I don’t think it was good enough or small enough to justify a purchase once the space saving 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS was announced.

As always, lenses can be hard to nail down as far as announcement time frames go, but we’ll keep asking.

Everyone Else Has One, Why Not us? Tamron to Announce 100-400mm F/4.5-6.3 Di VC USD

Everyone Else Has One, Why Not us? Tamron to Announce 100-400mm F/4.5-6.3 Di VC USD

We’ve seen the patent, and soon we’ll see the lens. Tamron is going to join Sigma and Canon with their own 100-400mm lens. The Tamron will be faster than the Sigma at the short end with an f-stop of 4.5 and slower than Canon at the long end at f/6.3. The new lens will obviously be image stabilized and no doubt it’ll be priced aggressively.

Now that Tamron and Sigma are both stepping on Canon’s 100-400mm toes, it’s time Canon get stepping on theirs with a 150-600mm zoom lens. Do you agree?

More G Series PowerShot Cameras on the Way, G5 X Mark II to Feature 1″ DPAF 20.2mp Sensor?

We’ve already heard a lot of rumbling about an imminent replacement for the PowerShot G1 X Mark II. We’ve reported that the flagship PowerShot will receive a 24mp APS-C sized sensor, instead of the 1.5″ sensor found in the current version.

We’ve been told that the PowerShot G5 X is also receiving a Mark II version shortly, but that the camera will retain the 1″ sized sensor. The new sensor is rumored to be 20.2mp, which is the same resolution of the current camera. The new sensor should be upgraded in image quality and and be equipped with DPAF. We do not know if the camera lens is going to remain 24-105mm (35mm equivalent).

We have moved the PowerShot G5 X to a “don’t buy” along with the PowerShot G1 X Mark II in our Buyer’s Guide. We’re still waiting to hear if the PowerShot G3 X will be getting a Mark II version shortly.

While have been unable to confirm an announcement date for the refreshed PowerShot cameras.
