Review: Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L II USM by DPR

By Canon Rumors | December 1, 2016 | Canon Reviews

DPReview has completed their review of the Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L II USM, and have come away impressed.

From DPReview

This is the best 35mm F1.4 prime currently available. On performance overall, it leaves all-comers floundering in its wake with outstanding image quality, especially at F1.4, and extra-robust build. Some rivals come close optically, but none offers a total package to match the Canon 35mm F1.4L USM MkII. Read the full review

Lensrentals.com Puts the EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II Through Testing

By Canon Rumors | November 30, 2016 | Canon Reviews

Roger at Lensrentals.com has completed his MTF testing of the brand new Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II.

From Roger

As always, I remind you that this has been an MTF test; it was only an MTF test. Had this been an actual photograph you would have been instructed that all differences were simply because of poor technique.

But on the basis of MTF, the 24-105 f/4 IS II is a decent lens, but not a spectacular upgrade. Would I upgrade my old 24-105 f/4 IS? Nope. If I was in the market would I buy one? Well, I’d wait for the price to come down or for it to be available as a kit lens with a new camera. One other thing to consider is that the new 24-105mm is significantly larger than the original version, and for some people, that’s going to be a negative for a walk-around lens.

We were hoping that Canon would continue their run of big improvement over previous iterations, such as the EF 16-35mm f/2.8L III and the EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II. However, at the price point of the EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II, we’re not surprised to see only moderate improvement.
