By Canon Rumors | January 9, 2017 | Canon Lens Rumors

We’re told that a new Canon EF 135mm f/2L IS is planned for 2017, the new EF 135mm f/2L IS would be announced after the EF 85mm f/1.4L IS has started shipping.

We still do not know the announcement date for that lens, just that it’s coming in 2017.

We’re going to try and get some confirmation so we can upgrade the rating.

Review: Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM

Review: Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM

By Canon Rumors | January 5, 2017 | Canon Reviews

The-Digital-Picture has completed their review of the Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM lens.

From TDP:

The technology upgrades appearing in this lens make it potentially a better choice than even some higher-priced lenses for at least some applications including video. Those already having a high end telephoto zoom lens in their kit may still be interested in having a light weight, low cost alternative available for casual photography opportunities. The attractively-designed 70-300 IS II features great AF and IS systems, but it is the excellent price-to-performance ratio that makes it an easy choice and worthwhile addition to a great many photographers’ kits.

Canon EOS System Celebrates 30th Anniversary

Canon EOS System Celebrates 30th Anniversary

By Canon Rumors | January 5, 2017 | Canon Business General

TOKYO, January 5, 2017—Canon Inc. will celebrate in March the 30th anniversary of the launch of the Company’s EOS System, which includes EOS-series interchangeable-lens cameras and a diverse range of system accessories, beginning with interchangeable EF lenses.

Canon’s EOS System made its debut in March 1987 with the launch of the EOS 650 single-lens reflex (SLR) camera and EF lenses.¹ An acronym of “Electro Optical System” while also carrying the name of the Greek goddess of the dawn, the EOS series saw first light in 1987 as the world’s first fully electronic mount system, representing a new generation of AF SLR cameras.

With all the digital camera key devices—the CMOS sensor, image processor and interchangeable lenses—utilized by the EOS System developed in-house, a strong product lineup began to take shape as the basic performance of each product steadily increased. Playing to this strength, Canon released the first entry-level DSLR in September 2003, the EOS Kiss Digital (EOS Digital Rebel or EOS 300D in other regions), ushering in a new digital era. With the Kiss Digital highly praised for its compact, lightweight design, user-friendliness and competitive price, Canon seized an overwhelming portion of the interchangeable-lens camera market that year, taking the No.1 share, which it has held for 13 consecutive years through 2015. What’s more, thanks to long-term support from customers, in November 2015, cumulative production of EOS-series cameras reached 80 million units, and in August 2016, the total number of EF lenses produced surpassed the 120 million-unit mark.
