    Canon officially announces the development of 6 new RF mount lenses

    The strange omission is a more budget standard zoom to go with the EOS RP. US camera dealers & UK show the option of purchasing with the EF24-70mm f4L IS USM or the EF24-105mm budget zoom. Having two zooms with similar focal lengths in the RF24-70mm f2.8L IS USM & the RF28-70mm f2L USM at the...

    Photokina 2019 scheduled for May has been cancelled, show to return annually May 2020

    The Photography Show in the UK is well attended in March every year. What saved the show was allowing retailers to sell both new and S/H equipment many with trade show discounts from the likes on Canon, Nikon, Sony etc. We exhibit at both The Photography Show and Photokina and by comparison...

    Full frame mirrorless market share: Canon already has 22% of the market in Japan

    Treyamon has a point. I would be interested in units sold not % as the market may have grown for mirrorless at the expense of DSLRs or high end compacts.

    At least two new EOS M cameras coming in 2019 [CR2]

    Most EOS M purchasers are new to Canon and most get no further than the bundled standard zoom lens. They are normally looking for something better than their cell phone but still only view the images either on cell phones or tablets. EOS R purchasers are more likely to be either existing Canon...

    Flagship EOS R camera coming in February ahead of CP+? [CR1]

    I don't know what bottle you drink from but your assessment of Apple & Canon is pure fantasy. Where does the synergy come from? Canon as well as making photographic equipment make office & domestic printers, photographic printers, machines for making CMOS sensors and security products...

    Flagship EOS R camera coming in February ahead of CP+? [CR1]

    I could get super technical but I wont. It was a "technician", point one. The weak spot in using the 5DS has been lenses, not the camera, point two. If the lenses don't have the resolving power or have inherent aberations they are not going to give you the full benefits of a 50MP sensor. At what...

    Canon EOS R vs 5D Mark IV - Pros & Cons

    Utter non-sense. When you have seen the RF lenses up close and personal as well as the newer EF lenses, when you have seen Sony cameras sitting on shelves while 5D MKIVs go out on rental then your understand Canon is a business. A business needs to make money so it can innovate, to defend...

    Canon EOS R vs 5D Mark IV - Pros & Cons

    This is a dying subject. The new Sony one piece SD cards are the future (not breakdown prone CFast). 32, 64 & 128GD, 300mb/s read, 299 mb/s write V90 SDXC II. Can be dropped up 5 metres without failure! Never had a single SD card failure, cannot say the same for CF & CFast.

    Canon EOS R vs 5D Mark IV - Pros & Cons

    Comparable to the 6D MKII for weather sealing. My 6D MKII was soaked on my last trip out on Dartmoor, wiped it dry with a towel back at my car and its been perfectly fine.

    Flagship EOS R camera coming in February ahead of CP+? [CR1]

    Canon technician at Photokina told me that the EOS R with either the RF 50mm f1.2L or the RF 28-70mm f2L gave results similar to the 5DS. If that's the case and given that both Sony & Nikon have cameras in the 40+ MP range, an EOS R Pro camera to be the spiritual successor to the 5DS / 5DSr...

    POLL? How many are preordering the EOS R?

    Having spent a lot of time with the EOS R at Photokina I’m truly in two minds about it. On the one hand I like the smaller form factor, the four new lenses, how quick it focuses, and the quality of the images but on the other hand the control layout compared to the DSLRs is totally different and...

    Show examples on the banding on the 5D MKIV? We rent tons of them and Ive never seen it or heard of it.

    PhaseOne and Hasselblad use Sony sensors, Red design their own sensors and independent foundries make them (not Sony).

    I get to play with Sony cameras we own for rental. Everything from the A9 down. They make great shots but frankly they dont move the game on anywhere like you would think looking at specifications. We also rent Nikons. Good equipment, solid performers but for every one Sony we rent, we rent four...

    JonSnow premise is about quantity to amortise R&D costs and this now hinders Canon. Red Camera have much smaller quantities yet offer at least three different sensors, all at the forefront of cinematography, with great dynamic range. Canon still represents the majority of professional...

    POLL? How many are preordering the EOS R?

    After the launch period and maybe six or seven months time if the price has dropped slightly, then yes. I pre-ordered the 6D MKII only to see the price fall within six months of launch so I won't make that mistake again.
