    Canon RF 50mm f/1.8 IS USM coming in 2019? [CR1]

    I second this thought. When I first started in digital in 2002 with D60 and D30 bodies, the 50/1.4 USM was a very good affordable portrait lens. I currently use my 50 STM on an SL1 body for portrait work. The release of the M50 and the 32/1.4 really got my attention, and if Canon added a 15/2.8...

    Canon RF 35mm f/1.8 IS STM Macro to be offered as an EOS RP kit lens in Japan

    If the 24-240 isn't quite ready, there is one other option. The RP looks to be priced to appeal strongly to APS-C users moving to FF. The body size and weight comes in just above the SL2, but lighter than the T7i and 77D, and much smaller and lighter than an 80D. Why not show the capability of...

    Sigma Announces the 105mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Series Lens Development

    I decided to do the math, just for fun. 85/1.8 USM (425 g) + 100/2 USM (460 g) + 135/2L (750 g) = 1635 g. Sigma 105/1.4 - Weight: 1645g/58.0oz. Those three Canon tele primes combined weigh a bit LESS than the new Sigma alone!! :o

    Lens Repair in Atlanta, GA, USA

    I first started purchasing used equipment from KEH back in the mid-80's, and most recently during their Black Friday sale, where they doubled their standard 6-month warranty to a full year(!) on all their used equipment. KEH consistently rates their gear conservatively, often listing something...

    Do you recommend KEH?

    I also strongly recommend KEH. I have bought from them off and on since the late 80's. Their grading is always conservative in comparison to other shops (their EXC is most places EXC+), and right now their warranty is extended to a full year on all used gear. Today is Green Day, as you are...

    Here We Go Again, New 50mm L Coming in 2018 [CR2]

    I would rather not see it be an L lens, with the corresponding price. I think a 50mm f/1.4 IS USM would fit very nicely in the lineup at around $549 USD, similar in pricing and specs to the 35, 28, and 24 IS lenses. It would be a big improvement over the current lens, without breaking the bank...

    This is the Canon EOS Rebel SL2/200D/X9

    Re: This is the Canon EOS Rebel SL2/200D/X8 Exactly my thoughts. Some might say the T7i is small and light enough, but that comes in as follows: Size: 131.0 x 99.9 x 76.2mm Weight: 532 g For me, that 79 g (3 ounces) and 8.6 x 7.3 x 6.4 mm in size difference makes the SL2 a full level smaller...

    This is the Canon EOS Rebel SL2/200D/X9

    Re: This is the Canon EOS Rebel SL2/200D/X8 I stand corrected. B&H listed the LP-E 12 for the M series, but that was probably the original M and M2. More power is good! ;)

    This is the Canon EOS Rebel SL2/200D/X9

    Re: This is the Canon EOS Rebel SL2/200D/X8 As a happy SL1 owner, I'm almost entirely pleased with the specs and layout. Bumping up from 4 fps to 5 fps is nice, as is adding 1080p with 60 fps and a flip swivel screen. I see most of the extra width (122.4 mm vs. 117 on the SL1) is in the hand...

    Re: Deal: Canon EOS 80D w/18-55 IS STM $764 (Reg $1149) How about the 5D Mark III body for $1,889 or 6D body for $1,079? The 24 EFS pancake is only $90, and the 10-22 EFS is only $396! It appears that the coupon code works for everything in the refurbished cameras or lenses store area from June...
