Behind the Scenes at Canon’s New Burbank Technology and Support Center

Behind the Scenes at Canon’s New Burbank Technology and Support Center

By Canon Rumors | July 24, 2017 | Cinema EOS News

Canon recently opened its new technology and support center in Burbank, California. Select media outlets were invited to take a peak and DPReview was one of them.

From DPReview:

According to Elliot Peck, Canon Imaging and Technologies’ Executive Vice President, the project to build this new center started about a year ago when Canon realized that it was effectively out of space at its old Hollywood location. Canon designed a completely new facility from the ground up and took the opportunity to move to Burbank, at the heart of the filmmaking industry.

Part of the service facility is the lens room, where technicians can test and verify lens performance after repair. The room might be better described as a very wide hallway, stretching about 65 ft. (20m) in length. The extra distance allows technicians to mount lenses up to 600mm on a master body to check for optical alignment and resolution, meaning that all but a couple very specialized Canon lenses can be tested here. Take the full tour at DPReview

I’ve visited Canon’s Hollywood support center and came away impressed, but this new facility looks even better.

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

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

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

That’s a great question and we are only getting very vague answers from people that know what’s coming.

If we go by the certifications, the three lenses in question are being manufactured at the Canon Opto SDN BHD factory in Malaysia. I cannot find any “high end” lenses in the Canon lineup that are made in Malaysia, please sound off in the forums if you know of any.

The same certification documents show that the EF 85mm f/1.4L IS II is being made at Canon’s Utsunomiya factory in Japan, which to my knowledge is the only place Canon L lenses are made, which is what we would call “high end”.

We have no information as to what “series” these 3 will fall under.

The announcement for these 4 lenses is expected the last week of August.
