Confirmation of Upcoming Product Announcements

By Canon Rumors | August 16, 2016 | Canon DSLR Rumors

There is more confirmation over at Digicame-Info of all the products we’ve said would be announced next week, nothing is a surprise if you’ve been on this site over the last couple of months. We’re still trying to dig for any other products that could appear for Photokina. We think if there is anything else to come, it’s likely for the PowerShot line.

Products to be announced next week.

  • Canon EOS 5D Mark IV
  • Canon EOS 5D Mark IV w/24-105mm f/4L IS II
  • Canon EOS 5D Mark IV w/24-70mm f/4L IS
  • Canon BG-E20 Battery Grip
  • Canon W-E1 Wifi Adaptor
  • Canon EOS 7D Mark II w/W-E1
  • Canon EOS 7D Mark II w/18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM
  • Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II
  • Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L III

As always, thanks for reading Canon Rumors, it means a lot to us. We hope to have a lot more to report over the next 10 days or so.

Review – Zeiss Milvus 50mm f/1.4 T*

Review – Zeiss Milvus 50mm f/1.4 T*

By Canon Rumors | August 15, 2016 | Canon Reviews

Dustin has completed our review of the Zeiss Milvus 50mm f/1.4 T* lens. A lens I’m happy to say appears to be far better than it’s predecessor. There are a ton of 50mm options out there, and all of them seem to have their positives and negatives, which can make a buying decision quite difficult.  The Milvus is a lens I would seriously consider, as I don’t mind manual focus with the 50mm focal length.  This Milvus will give you some unique results for a fraction of the cost of say a Canon EF 50mm f/1.0L.

From the review:

Zeiss lenses are for connoisseurs, and those that own them deeply appreciate them. I’ve appreciated the Milvus 50 for its beautiful build, being great to handle, and for a wonderfully artful rendering. I’m so glad that the Zeiss was able to bring a whole new level of resolution to their 50mm focal length without losing the beautiful “Zeiss look” of the images. The Milvus manages to be artful rather than clinical and manages to retain a lot of the goodness of the Otus series with a whole lot less sticker shock. Read the full review

Patent: Canon EF 28-560mm f/2.8-5.6L USM

Patent: Canon EF 28-560mm f/2.8-5.6L USM

By Canon Rumors | August 15, 2016 | Canon Patents

A patent showing another crazy superzoom has appeared, this time the optical  formula is for an EF  28-560mm f/2.8-5.6L USM. We’d  assume such a lens would also have IS if it ever came to market. We expected to see a non-L superzoom sometime in 2016, but that has apparently been put off until late 2017 at the earliest.

Patent Publication No. 2016-142795

  • Published 2016.8.8
  • Filing date 2015.1.30
  • Zoom ratio 18.86
  • Focal length 28.80 119.57 543.20
  • F-number 2.88 4.56 5.88
  • Half angle of view (degrees) 36.91 10.26 2.28
  • Image height 21.64 21.64 21.64
  • The total lens length 281.07 331.07 385.01
  • BF 53.05 61.31 40.00
  • The effective diameter of the front lens 120.00

I’m not sure this is a superzoom we’re likely to see, but all indications point to Canon definitely developing a replacement for the EF 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6L IS.

Review: Canon imagePROGRAF Pro-4000

Review: Canon imagePROGRAF Pro-4000

By Canon Rumors | August 15, 2016 | Canon Reviews

Martin Bailey has completed what is likely the first review of the brand new Canon imagePROGRAF Pro-4000, a new 44″ printer from Canon. We’ve seen reviews of both the imagePROGRAF Pro-1000 and imagePROGRAF Pro-2000 from Keith at Northlight Images which have shown these to be the best printers Canon has ever made and it looks like the Pro-4000 will fall into the same category.

Martin writes about one of the great features of the Pro-4000

Another great improvement in my opinion is the ability to now choose from three sizes of ink tanks, with 160ml, 330ml, and 700ml tanks available. My old iPF6350 took 130ml ink tanks, so even the smallest of the new tanks holds 30ml more ink. I could fill up the new PRO-4000 with 160ml tanks, but now having the option to install larger tanks, and mix and match the sizes, means we can select the tank size based on how quickly the inks run down.

I’ll still be going with a Pro-2000, as I don’t need a crane to get into my house.
