Two More 5D Cameras Coming? [CR1]

Two More 5D Cameras Coming? [CR1]

By Canon Rumors | April 14, 2015 | Canon DSLR Rumors

A recycling of past rumors has made its way around again, this time talking about a direct replacement for the EOS 5D Mark III, as well as a cinema version for the 5D line.

First up, the Canon EOS 5Dc. These specs first appeared back in February.

  • 18MP
  • 61 point AF system
  • ISO 100-204.800
  • 4k video (source says Canon has yet to define the frame rate)
  • Dual Pixel AF III
  • Many advanced video features
  • Features taken from Canon’s Cinema cameras

Second up, the EOS 5D Mark IV. This megapixel count first appeared in March.

  • 28MP sensor
  • 12fps
  • Dual Pixel AF III
  • New and more advanced AF system (compared to EOS 5D Mark III), apparently it will not be the same AF as the 5D Mark IVc
  • Anti-flickr technology (seen first on the EOS 7D Mark II)
  • Crop mode (featured on the EOS 5Ds)
  • ISO 100-204.800 (expandable to 409.600)

Before the EOS 5DS & EOS 5DS R launch, we had heard there would be 3 cameras carrying the “5D” moniker, and we assumed the EOS 5DS “R” was one of the cameras. However, in the last few months, there has been talk that the EOS-1D C would be replaced by a 5D style cinema DSLR camera. If the EOS 5Dc rumor is true and it’s priced in the $3500 range like all of the “5D” cameras, that would make the XC10 & C100 Mark II tougher sells than they already are.

This is interesting to say the least, but we can’t confirm how likely this set of rumors is.

Review: Sigma 24mm f/1.4 DG Art by DXOMark

Review: Sigma 24mm f/1.4 DG Art by DXOMark

By Canon Rumors | April 14, 2015 | Canon Reviews

DXOMark has completed their review of the Sigma 24mm f/1.4 DG Art lens. According to DXO, the Sigma holds up very well against the Canon EF 24mm f/1.4L II, one of my favourite lenses in the Canon lineup.

From DXOMark

Although at first sight the Sigma’s overall DxOMark score might not look as convincing as the two previous Art models from the maker, it is important to look deeper than the numbers suggest, especially at shorter focal lengths. The Sigma 24mm f1.4 DG HSMis the finest 24mm we’ve seen, although against the Canon 24mm f1.4L II USM, it’s a close-run thing. That model has slightly higher peak sharpness centrally at f4-5.6, but the Sigma has more uniform performance overall, including superior control of CA and distortion.

Patent: Sigma 400mm f/2.8 OS Sport

Patent: Sigma 400mm f/2.8 OS Sport

By Canon Rumors | April 13, 2015 | Third Party Lenses

We’ve heard in the past that Sigma is working on super telephoto lenses, namely a 500mm f/4 OS. Now a patent has appeared for a 400mm f/2.8 OS lens from Sigma. I think the biggest challenge for Sigma in this area is going to be autofocus. Super telephoto lenses are the least forgiving when it comes to focus accuracy in most situations.
