We all love “best of” lists when it comes to gear, and LensRentals.com has release their “best & most rented gear” list of 2015. Among staff picks, Canon gets three best of the year nods.
LR Staff Picks won by Canon
- Roger Cicala – Canon EF 400mm f/4 DO IS II
“My favorite new piece of gear is the Canon 400mm f/4 DO IS II. It’s amazingly light for a super-telephoto at 4.5 pounds (about a pound more than a 70-200mm f/2.8lens) and with 4-stop image stabilization can be handheld even when the light isn’t awesome.”
- Chris Steward – Canon Cinema EOS C300 Mark II
“We rarely receive complaints about the C300, it just works. So I was really excited when we demoed the C300 Mark II at NAB this year. Sure enough, every concern we had with the original C300 has been addressed: 4K resolution, high frame rate shooting, 12-bit internal recording, proxy files, detachable monitor cables, raw output, and more!”
- Zach Sutton – Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L II
“This year, I fell in love with the new Canon 35mm f/1.4L II. I loved the old version of this lens, so it was great to see Canon finally step it up, and make the sharpest 35mm available. Previously, Sigma had shaken me away from the Canon 35mm with their Sigma 35mm Art 1.4, but I’ve always been a bit of a Canon loyalist and opted to wait for Canon to bring a new contender to the race.”
