    Question re: 17-40L Flare

    Hello CanonRumors folks, I recently picked up a 17-40L from the Canon Refurbished store. So far I'm enjoying it, though I have noticed that it seems to flare more than I expected, particularly red and green blotches/reflections. Admittedly, this has generally been in situations where the sun is...

    Looking for eos-m3 case

    Hello CanonRumors community, I recently purchased an eos-m3 and I really love it so far. I am trying to find a small case that will fit the camera plus the 22mm f/2 lens, keep it safe from bumps and scratches, and that could be carried in a backpack or laptop bag. Any eos-m users come across...

    What's your thoughts: Photozone's Canon 11-24mm f/4 L review?

    I suppose it could be a phenomenon associated with vignetting, though I was wondering more about the effect of different types of aberrations at different focusing distances. I believe that Roger at LensRentals usually tests the lens with an optical bench which (if I am recalling correctly)...

    What's your thoughts: Photozone's Canon 11-24mm f/4 L review?

    I wonder if wide angle lenses may suffer from a systematic problem in the way photozone tests lenses. If I have read correctly, they test the lenses using a chart/target. A given chart/target must fit the field of view of the lens to get comparable information across different lenses. Thus, for...

    Canon Introduces New EF 50MM F/1.8 STM Lens

    Re: TDP: 50mm 1.8 MkII vs. STM Image Quality It's potentially just sample variation, but The Digital Picture shows about the same results when you compare the STM to the MkII. They both may have gotten their hands on copies on the high quality side, but I think it's evidence that there is some...

    Canon Introduces New EF 50MM F/1.8 STM Lens

    TDP: 50mm 1.8 MkII vs. STM Image Quality Bryan over at The-Digital-Picture has put up his first look at the new Canon EF 50mm STM image quality. You can compare it to the samples he has from the 50mm 1.8 MkII. My preliminary experience concurs with what I see in the comparison, the STM...

    Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM

    The bokeh can be pretty nice. The closer focusing distance has already been quite noticeable, also. (Canon 6D, f/2.0, 1/60s, ISO 200)

    Review: Canon XC10 With Footage

    I'm not a video kind of guy, so maybe more video oriented forum users can provide some commentary: I have gotten the impression over the past several years that Canon seems to be stumbling a lot in the video arena. Every release appears to either be considerably more expensive than the direct...
