SIGMA to announce a 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG DN OS | Sports soon

By Canon Rumors | July 8, 2021 | Third Party Lenses

SIGMA is bringing another super-telephoto zoom to their lineup. This new lens will be a 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG DN OS | Sports, which appears to be for the mirrorless mount(s), so it could be for Sony’s E-mount, SIGMA’s L mount, and Nikon’s Z mount.

I don’t think this will be SIGMA’s first RF mount release, so don’t get your hopes up.

No specifications or pricing for the new lens have been released.

Canon has released a list of RF lenses that they can’t meet the demand for

Canon has released a list of RF lenses that they can’t meet the demand for

By Canon Rumors | July 6, 2021 | Canon Lens News

As we all know, a lot of RF mount lenses have been hard to come by for quite some time. Most of these issues are obviously attributed to the COVID-19 pandemic and all of the supply chain issues that are still ongoing across many industries.

From Canon Japan

We have received more orders than expected for each of the following products, and it will take some time before delivery.

We thank you for your many orders and apologize for any inconvenience caused to our customers.

Most of the retailers I have spoken to have been told not to expect inventory numbers to rise until at least mid-August. The unreleased lenses will ship as scheduled in very limited quantities, so if you have preorders in, there’s still a chance that you’ll get your lens on time.

The Canon EOS R5c is coming in Q1 2022 [CR3]

The Canon EOS R5c is coming in Q1 2022 [CR3]

By Canon Rumors | July 2, 2021 | Canon EOS Rumors

Last year we received the first reports of a videographer focus EOS R5 camera named the Canon EOS R5c. I have now received multiple confirmations that such a camera is in the pipeline.

The announcement and release date have apparently been pushed back to Q1 of 2022. Originally we were told that an announcement around NAB in October was possible, but it looks like it has been pushed back. I do think Canon would like products announced and shipping within 60 days of the announcement.

What do we know about the Canon EOS R5c?

It’s an EOS R5 with active cooling, a slightly different form factor, and more codecs for video recording. The camera will also come with a full-size HDMI port.

Keep in mind that most of the specifications from the Canon EOS R5 will carry over to the Canon EOS R5c.
