    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!

    Canon EF-S 35mm f/2.8 M IS STM Coming April 5, 2017 [CR3]

    my EF 35mm f/2 IS USM is better :-) Hopefully since this is EF-S & f/2.8 it'll be nice & small (please let it be a pancake :-), & nice & cheap...

    The Next Lens from Canon Will be an EF-S Prime

    I'd say that "specialty lenses" also includes fisheyes. (Not trying to be pedantic, just covering all the bases)

    The Next Lens from Canon Will be an EF-S Prime

    The flange-focal distance of the Canon EF mount is 44mm. Given that the rear element can protrude a little bit into the body, the widest non-retrofocus EF lens is probably the 40mm f/2.8 STM pancake (& from the patent it's really a 39mm lens). EF-S has short back-focus. Let's say for sake of...

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

    Great news! In the mean time, I bought myself a Tamron SP 85mm f/1.8 VC for pagan winter festival, & it's amazing.

    Canon Releases Survey Results Confirming Consumer Perceptions of Better Service than Nikon

    My recent lens repair with Canon Professional Services was the best customer service experience I've had with any company in a long time. It was less expensive than I thought it would be too.
