Patent: Canon RF kit zoom lenses

Patent: Canon RF kit zoom lenses

By Richard | December 12, 2019 | Canon Patents

CanonNews discovered another patent detailing some interesting kit zooms that start off at the ultra wide-angle.  It’s unknown if Canon would ever make such a lens, but the zoom range is very intriguing.

It’s also a lens that could double for a standard lens for APS-C.  However, it would bigger than it would need to be since it’s designed to cover the full frame image circle.

Teardown: Canon RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM

Teardown: Canon RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM

By Canon Rumors | December 10, 2019 | Canon Lens News

Our friends at Lensrentals.com have done what a lot of us wanted to see done, and that’s a teardown of the brand new Canon RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM.

From Lensrentals.com:

There are some of you who are going to scream about how you want metal lenses. OK, Boomer, go get you a metal lens and show us how strong you are. On every other 70-200mm lenses we’ve disassembled, there are multiple metal parts that we can bend with our fingers. There’s not a damn thing we can bend with our fingers in this bad boy. This is going to hold up better than a metal lens, it’s probably sturdier, and it weighs far less.

I haven’t tested it optically. I haven’t even shot with it. But after looking inside it, I want it. The engineering in here is pure art. And even I, the person who mocks construction at any chance I get, can’t find anything to complain about. Check out the full teardown

It looks like Canon has made another gem of a lens construction-wise, but we’ll wait to see if they’ve also hit it out of the park optically.

Astronomik presents Clip Filter for Canon EOS R, Ra and RP

Astronomik presents Clip Filter for Canon EOS R, Ra and RP

By Canon Rumors | December 9, 2019 | Canon Business General

Astronomik Clip-Filter for the mirrorless full format cameras EOS R and RP

The new clip filters can be used with all lenses on the camera body without any modifications.

The clip filters are optimized for use with normal camera lenses and telescopes.

All Astronomik filters are now also available as Clip filters EOS R!

The Astronomik CLS-CCD is our advice as an ideal “all-round filter”: The CLS-CCD largely suppresses artificial light pollution and enables deep, long-exposures even from locations with strong light pollution while giving your natural colors!

Beside the CLS-CCD the Astronomik emission-line filters H-alpha, SII and OIII with 12nm and 6nm FWHM are available.

The Astronomik ProPlanet 642 BP, 742 and 807 give the infrared photographer a wide range of filters at his disposal. The UV+IR blockers L-1, L-2 and L-3 complete the family.

By Canon Rumors | December 5, 2019 | Canon Firmware

As previously reported, Canon has released a firmware update for the Canon EOS R. It turns out it was released at the end of November but hasn’t yet been posted by Canon USA for whatever reason.

Firmware Version 1.6.0 incorporates the following enhancements and fixes:

  1. Support for the RF 85mm f/1.2L USM DS lens has been added.
  2. Corrects a phenomenon in which the function or setting value assigned to the control ring may change when the control ring is operated in Eco mode.
  3. Corrects a phenomenon in which the camera may stop operating properly during “auto-transfer” when using Camera Connect with a Wi-Fi connection.
  4. Corrects a phenomenon in which high-speed synchronization with use of an external flash may not operate properly depending on the camera’s setting for C.Fn2 “Set shutter speed range”.
