Canon EOS 7D
As anticipated Canon has today announced the EOS 7D digital SLR. It boasts a new 18MP CMOS sensor, Dual DIGIC 4 processors, ISO range expandable to 12800, continuous shooting at 8 fps and full HD video recording. It also incorporates a new viewfinder with 1.0x magnification and 100% coverage and a 3 inch LCD with 920k dot resolution.

Canon EF-S 15-85 & 18-135
Along with the EOS 7D, Canon has announced two EF-S, APS-C lenses. The EF-S 15-85mm F3.5-5.6 IS USM is as a high quality standard zoom designed to complement the EOS 7D. It offers a flexible 24-136mm (35mm equivalent) range and offers image stabilizer with a claimed effectiveness of 4 stops. It also includes ring-type USM and a close focus distance of 0.35m through the entire zoom range. Also bolstering Canon’s EF-S range is the 18-135mm F3.5-5.6 IS USM, which covers a 29-216mm (35mm equivalent) range and with a claimed 4-stop image stabilizer and a minimum focus distance of 0.45m.

EF 100 f/2.8L Macro

Hot on the heels of Canon’s announcement of its Hybrid IS technology comes the first lens to sport this feature and, to no great surprise, it’s a 100mm F2.8 macro. The Hybrid IS system is claimed to provide up to 2 stops stabilization at 1.0x magnification, and up to 4 stops at longer shooting distances. This, Canon’s third-generation EF 100mm F2.8 macro lens, is also the first to gain the flagship ‘L’ designation and comes with such goodies as ultra-low dispersion glass elements, a nine blade circular aperture and weathersealing. The Canon EF 100mm F2.8L IS USM macro will supplement, rather than supplant the existing 100mm F2.8 USM macro.

  1. The EOS 7D’s camera seals are built to resist water and dust but therefore the kis lenses should also be in that quality.

  2. Hello 7D you had me at your upgraded AF system!1 Plus your Pi Sheti for JPEG Anger Quality of Photometry. ;P

  3. Maybe when unprocessed _some_ shots with ISO equal or greater than to 1600 are usable, but none of them will be really suitable for post-processing. The noise is just too much for me.

  4. 7D with 25/24p and 60p!…

    So the 7D rumours have proved real (dpreview | canon official ) which is both excellent news and not so excellent news. The intro of 60fps slow-mo at 720p is good for me, and particularly we now have 25p in full 1080p glory. Took Canon almost a year to…
