Take that SONY!!!


but also does this mean it won’t work on even the R3? I can see maybe not the rp/r maybe were developed before bringing this into the lineup, but hopefully the 3 & 6 will come later on?

Having two image circles captured at once on same image sensor, it probably only makes much sense on high-megapixel sensors.

Canon have just confirmed to me that it is only for the R5 so won't work with my R6 or R3

That's very strange. Did Canon ever made a lens which only works on specific camera model and not on others? (except of course for different sensor sizes)

This is going to be big bucks. Probably 3k+
Well, so was the EF 11-14mm lens when I bought it....I think it was about that much even when I bought it refurb from canon.

Great piece of glass tho....

But that price isn't unheard of.

Frankly, VR has been created by Quicktime VR in the 1990's. Many tools exists including specialized heads. With my R6 using a 24mm lens and stitching the image together I will achieve much better resolution than the R5 with this set up. Having said that for video, moving crowds and in the water, this will be a great tool because has perfect timing. We do have this already with specialized camera, but the optic and sensors are less sophisticated. Like other similar technology, it is also the post-processing work that matters, and they seems to have done their homework.

Looks like an improved Stitz or a Loreo stereo module, only direct mount instead of mounting on the front of a lens.

I'll have to dig mine out and try it.
