A New Canon TS-E 17mm f/4L Tilt-Shift Lens Coming? [CR2]

By Canon Rumors | April 11, 2018 | Canon Lens Rumors

We’ve now heard from multiple people that an update to the Canon TS-E 17mm f/4L tilt-shift lens is likely coming some time in the next year. The current version was announced in June of 2009, so we are approaching the 10 year anniversary of this highly regarded lens.

There has been no mention of the TS-E 24mm f/3.5L II tilt-shift being updated as well. This lens was announced alongside the TS-E 17mm f/4L back in 2009.

More to come…

Review: Canon EOS M50 by TDP

By Canon Rumors | April 10, 2018 | Canon Reviews

Bryan over at The-Digital-Picture has completed his extensive review of the brand new Canon EOS M50 mirrorless camera.

From The-Digital-Picture:

While a complete beginner can use this camera to simply capture very high quality images, the advanced user who takes the time to learn this camera’s more advanced features can have great control over their imagery. And, with Canon’s entire EOS system accessories behind it, the M50’s capabilities are practically unlimited.

Whether it is tucked into a pocket, in a camera case for backup purposes or used as an always-in-hand primary camera, the Canon EOS M50 can always be there for you with professional-grade image quality. Read the full review

The Canon EOS M50 looks to be a great option for an APS-C mirrorless camera from Canon, even if it didn’t hit the mark with a “real” 4K implementation.

Rumor has it that Canon may be pulling out of Photokina 2018 in  September. An article over at DIY Photography mentions Elinchrom, Canon and Profoto as companies that may be pulling out of the trade show.

Elinchrom has made this official, but there has been no official word from Profoto or Canon.

Photokina moves to a yearly show in the spring of next year, this is going to be the last September show. The September show has been reduced to 4 days, from 6. Read more at DIYPhotography

Here are Some Interesting Lens Mentions We’ve Received [CR1]

Here are Some Interesting Lens Mentions We’ve Received [CR1]

The rumormill is a bit slow at the moment, but that hasn’t stopped lots of folks writing in with gear that may be on the horizon.

I figured it would be fun to let you know about a few lenses people have claimed are coming in the not-too-distant-future from Canon. I rate all of these lenses as unlikely, but I’ve thought that in the past with other lenses, only to see a couple of them turn out to be true.

There seems to be an abundance of lenses with built-in TC’s hitting my inbox.

  • Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L IS 1.4x / 2.0x TC
    A crazy replacement for the EF 800mm f/5.6L IS with two built-in teleconverters?
  • Canon EF 600mm f/4L IS 1.4x TC
    Another lens to replace the EF 800mm f/5.6L IS?
  • Canon EF 200-600mm IS w/1.4TC
    A new superzoom with a built-in TC? Highly unlikely, but a nice thought nonetheless.
  • Canon EF 14mm f/2L
    A faster replacement for the EF 14mm f/2.8L II?
  • Canon EF 50-300mm f/2.8-5.6 IS DO
    One of the more creative wishlist lenses? I doubt we’ll see a DO zoom again.

I would rank all of these rumored lenses as unlikely, but a couple of them may be worth a discussion.
