Another EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS III Mention [CR2]

Another EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS III Mention [CR2]

By Canon Rumors | May 14, 2018 | Canon Lens Rumors

The announcement for the EF 70-200mm f/4L IS II which was scheduled for this past April, appears to have been delayed. We’re still being told that it is coming “soon”. However, as mentioned preciously, we don’t think this is the last 70-200mm lens coming from Canon in 2018.

We’re being told again that a new EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS III could be announced in the 2nd half of 2018. We figured Photokina 2018 in September would be a good place to announce it, however it’s always possible that the lens gets announced after the show, like we have seen with previous lenses such as the EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II which came a couple of months after Photokina 2014.

A lot of sources are quite coy at the moment, but we’re getting the feeling that the 2nd half of 2018 is going to be an exciting time for Canon announcements.

Review: Rokinon AF 14mm f/2.8 by TDP

The-Digital-Picture has completed their review of the recently released Rokinon AF 14mm f/2.8 lens. The first autofocus lens from Rokinon for the Canon EF mount.

From The-Digital-Picture:

Rokinon/Samyang’s first auto focus lens for Canon (Sony was already covered), the AF 14mm f/2.8 Lens, jumps right to the top of my all-time Rokinon/Samyang lens favorites list and onto my short list of 14mm favorites.

The size and weight of this lens are such that it is easy to include in the bag even when 14mm is not the primary need. The design is nice. The image quality the Rokinon AF 14 delivers is a big driver for selection and the very reasonable price tag seals the deal. Read the full review

Sigma Announces Pricing & Availability for Its 70mm F2.8 DG MACRO Art Lens

By Canon Rumors | May 11, 2018 | Third Party Lenses

Ronkonkoma, NY – May 11, 2018 – Sigma Corporation of America, a leading still photo and cinema lens, camera, flash and accessory manufacturer, today announced that its 70mm F2.8 DG MACRO Art, the first prime macro lens to be adorned with the Art badge, will be available in Canon mount in the end of May for $569.00 USD through authorized US retailers. The Sigma mount model is expected to ship in June. The release of the Sony E-Mount version will be announced later.

The First Macro Lens in the Sigma Global Vision Art Line
Elevating the legendary Sigma 70mm F2.8 EX DG to the Art line, the brand new Sigma 70mm F2.8 DG MACRO Art prioritizes optical performance that defines the Sigma Art line, delivering stunning resolution and incredible clarity, while at the same time offering extremely smooth autofocus performance for a weightier, high-performance lens.

To achieve optimal results at every shooting distance, the lens features an extending, floating, two-group focus mechanism, which minimizes aberration at all focal lengths. In addition, the lens’ optical elements design increases resolution at close shooting distances, allowing for a razor-sharp in-focus area contrasted with a bokeh area free of color streaking.

Other feature highlights include focus-by-wire system featuring newly developed coreless DC motor for comfortable and precise focusing typically required for macro photography; compatibility of the Canon mount lens with the Canon Lens Aberration Correction function; and compatibility with Sigma Electronic Flash Macro EM-140 DG and Sigma Teleconverters.
