Besides the EF 85mm f/1.4L IS, What are the Other 3 Lenses Coming?

By Canon Rumors | July 20, 2017

That’s a great question and we are only getting very vague answers from people that know what’s coming. We’re told that the 3 lenses shown in the certification documents are going to be a “series”. The “series” of lenses has also been described to us as “high-end”. If we go by the certifications, the three Read more…

Canon EOS 6D Mark II Dynamic Range Talk & Sample Images

Canon EOS 6D Mark II Dynamic Range Talk & Sample Images

By Canon Rumors | July 20, 2017 | Canon DSLR News

Full production Canon EOS 6D Mark II camera bodies have started hitting the desks of reviewers. With that, we are also seeing a lot of sample images and sensor talk.

DPReview has completed a dynamic range test and have found that the EOS 6D Mark II isn’t a step forward in this regard. Base ISO dynamic range is not as good as the EOS 6D in early tests, though the EOS 6D Mark II does squeak out slightly better dynamic range performance at higher ISO’s than it’s predecessor.

From DPReview:

….it seems the benefits that appeared in the sensors used in the EOS 80D and EOS 5D IV have not been applied to the latest EOS 6D II, and the new camera has less dynamic range than we’ve become used to. Graphs plotted by regular DPR collaborator Bill Claff illustrate this pretty clearly. In this article, we’re taking a look at what this might mean for your images. Read the full test

Obviously dynamic range isn’t everything and the sensor is more capable than that in the EOS 6D, but it is a bit disappointing there hasn’t been a bigger advancement from Canon in this regard.

Two New Big White Lenses Coming Next Year [CR2]

Two New Big White Lenses Coming Next Year [CR2]

By Canon Rumors | July 19, 2017 | Canon Lens Rumors

We’re told that an internal presentation roadmap from Canon includes two “big white” lenses coming in 2018. The slide in question did not mention specific focal lengths, likely to help prevent what I’m typing right now.

One of the big white lenses could logically be the EF 600mm f/4 DO IS that Canon showed back at the 2015 Canon Expo.

The second of the two remains a mystery at this time. There has always been some rumblings about an updated EF 200mm f/2L IS and EF 800mm f/5.6L IS, but nothing has come to fruition.

2018 is a World Cup of football/soccer in Russia and the Olympic Winter Games in South Korea and Canon generally makes a professional gear splash for these events.

We also have Photokina to look forward to in September of 2018.

The previous release of “big whites” saw two releases in pairs. First the EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II & EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II came, followed by the EF 500mm f/4L IS II & EF 600mm f/4L IS II a few months later.
