    Blackmagic Design announces new Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K with EF mount

    IMHO there's something Colani-esque about the design of this thing... https://www.google.com/search?q=colani+camera&source=lnms&tbm=isch

    Blackmagic Design announces new Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K with EF mount

    Also most APS-C zoom lenses will large have enough image circles at the long end to work without vignetting. To my knowledge, only Canon makes actual EF-S lenses; all other 3rd party mounts are just normal EF with glass designed for APS-C. e.g. my APS-C Tokina 11-16 f/2.8 worked just fine as a...

    Stock Notice: Tamron 35-150mm F/2.8-4 Di VC OSD at Adorama

    Wow, Tamron really hit the nail on the head with this one. I can't wait to see the reviews; if it's as good as my 85mm f/1.8 VC... I imagine they picked 35mm for the wide end as I suppose it's possible to accomplish in EF mount without a retrofocus design.

    Tokina officially announces the Opera 16-28mm F/2.8 FX

    Tokina "pro" lenses have always been excellent value for money. Very satisfied with my 11-16 f/2.8 (which BTW mounts just fine on FF & is perfectly acceptable as a "real" 16mm f/2.8).

    Canon officially announces the development of 6 new RF mount lenses

    The "tiny" 70-200 is yet another compelling argument for this platform. I'd love to see a "reverse teleconverted" (or redesigned :) 50-150 f/2 IS in similar form factor. Oh, I'd expect to see Tokina release their full-frame mirrorless "Firin" 20mm f/2 for EOS R as well...

    Patent: Canon speedbooster for EOS M

    I've already been looking at picking up a 2nd-hand EOS M6, now that there are good/cheap Fotodiox EF AF adapters for it. I would certainly buy a high-quality "speed booster" without hesitation.

    Tokina Officially Announces the Opera 50mm f/1.4 FF

    So glad to see Tokina back in the game. My 11-16 f/2.8 is awesome. Even though it's technically a "crop" lens it works great as a 16mm f/2.8 on my full-frame 6D!

    Canon EF 135mm f/2L IS Coming in 2017 [CR2]

    & this is why I don't bother shooting above MRAW 1/2 resolution unless I know I'll really need the resolution.

    Leaked: Sigma 105mm f/1.4 HSM Art

    Wow! This is going to be amazing for portraits, concerts, weddings, etc. I'm a big low-light geek & this gets me hot. Like lots of folks, my first reaction was "why no stabilization?" but if you think about it: Adding IS to large-aperture lenses is *hard* & adds size & weight. Large glass...

    Mobile Redirects Currently Plaguing the Mobile Web

    If you use FireFox (which also works great on mobile), there's a really nice blocking tool called NoScript: https://noscript.net/ It's not for everyone & you kinda need to work with it a bit to train it, but once you get used to it & establish your whitelists it's not to hard to have it allow...

    Canon Full Frame Mirrorless to use Dedicated Sensor [CR2]

    I agree they'd shoot down APS-H if it's an interchangeable lens camera, but if it's a super-powershot (for which they've done custom oddball-sized sensors before)... 16ish really good APS-H MP with a 24-100 f/2.8-4.5ish (equiv.) lens in a compact integrated powershot body would be pretty...

    Canon Full Frame Mirrorless to use Dedicated Sensor [CR2]

    Personally I think that an APS-H size sensor (with e.g 6D-size pixels) would be sufficient for a large-sensor mirrorless camera, & help keep the size & weight down while still being a significant step up from the APS-C crowd.

    I tested out the theory behind DxOMark's F-Stop blues article

    Yep, IIRC Leica claims they do that on their rangefinder cameras as the wide-aperture angle of incidence is even higher than a DSLR due to the short flange-back distance.

    Canon Officially Announces the EF-S 35mm f/2.8 Macro IS STM

    Hopefully this'll come down to around 300 bux when pagan winter festival comes around. I'll take it!
