Last month, there was word floating around that Canon was about to announce updates to their popular 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II and 70-200mm f/4L IS lenses. Well, Canon has now officially announced those updates. The two new lenses are, not surprisingly, the 70-200mm f/2.8L IS III and 70-200mm f/4L IS II.
It seems that Canon is looking to refresh their 70-200mm lenses of both f/2.8 and f/4 flavours. Canon Rumors says they can “100% confirm” that one of the new lenses will be the EF 70-200mm f/4L IS II. And they’re 95% sure that a second lens will also be on the way, the 70-200mm f/2.8L IS III. They say that the clues all point to this being the lens, but that they’ve not seen the name in writing.
In 2010, photographer and filmmaker Ivo Nörenberg approached Canon with a request for an “impossible” lens. He needed a long zoom 4K Super 35mm lens, designed for needs of wildlife video production. Canon said “challenge accepted,” and the CINE-SERVO 50-1000mm T5.0-8.9 was born.
Narrated by Canon’s Larry Thorpe, this video outlines the specs of this $70K lens, but also shows Nörenberg thoughts about it, as well the results it lets him achieve.
NBC Olympics, a division of NBC Sports Group, is producing, programming and promoting NBC Universal’s Olympic coverage. For the Winter Games in PyeongChang, South Korea, the production has chosen to cover the event with Canon’s cameras and lenses.
After some guessing and speculations, Canon has now officially launched Canon EF-S 35mm f/2.8 Macro IS STM lens. According to the test shots and videos, it makes really great images, and it’s quite versatile. Along with the macro, they have also released a new compact camera, Canon PowerShot SX730 HS. It’s the follow-up to the SX720, and another light and compact travel camera. So let us tell you more about both of them.
Plenty of news comes from Canon today. They have announced two new DSLR cameras: EOS 77D and T7i (which will be known as EOS 800D outside the US). These will most likely make advanced beginners happy, as they will allow them expand their knowledge and skills. Canon has also announced a new 18-55mm lens to go along. You can order them separately or with some of the cameras, there are several options available. But let’s take a look at the details.
