EOS M & 11-22mm IS STM

On the Road to Sarchu by CW Steve on 500px

If you follow CW you probably know that I am travelling the North of India. The pic above was shot while biking to Ladakh, approx. at 13,000 feet. Shot with the Canon EOS M and the amazing EF-M 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM lens. Post-processed in Adobe Lightroom 5.

If you live in the US you can order the EF-M 11-22mm IS STM at Amazon Canada.

Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS Video-Review (DigitalRev)

Says DigitalRev’s Kai:

Do you really need image stabilisation in an ultra-wide angle lens? Canon seems to think so. We take a look at the new 16-35mm f/4L IS USM and ponder how this compares to the 16-35mm f/2.8L and the 17-40mm f/4L USM

Find it out watching the 5:31 minutes video above.

The new Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS is in stock and ready to ship at Adorama | B&H Photo | DigitalRev.

Big Discounts Coming For The Canon EOS 7D (and for other DSLRs, next week)

Canon EOS 7D

I have been told (thanks) that Canon will start a new instant rebates program next week. While a lot of Canon DSLRs and kits are involved, the discounts are particularly consistent for the EOS 7D. Another hint that its successor is close to be announced? I think so.

Both the EOS 7D body only and the kit with EF-S 18-135mm IS lens will get a wobbling $500 instant discount, the 7D kit with the EF 28-135mm IS lens will get $600 instant rebate.

New instant rebates programs will start also for the following Canon DSLRs and kits:

EOS 70D, EOS 60D, Rebel T5i, Rebel SL1, Rebel T3i, Rebel T3, Rebel T5.

Keep a close eye here at CW, more to come, or check the EOS 7D price now: Amazon, B&H, Adorama, Canon USA, Digitalrev, eBay

Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS Review (Photozone)

Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS

The new Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS is in stock and ready to ship at Adorama | B&H Photo | DigitalRev.

Specifications (taken from Adorama‘s product page)

  • High performance L-series ultra-wide zoom lens in a compact design and Optical Image Stabilizer for up to four stops of correction
  • Three aspheric lens elements, including a large-diameter aspheric lens, help correct aberration.
  • Two UD lens elements help reduce chromatic aberration from the center to the periphery throughout the entire zoom range for excellent image quality with high resolution and contrast.
  • Fluorine coating on front and rear lens surfaces are optimized to help minimize ghosting.
  • Highly resistant to dust and water intrusion, enabling shooting even in harsh conditions.
  • Inner focusing and ring USM for silent, fast and accurate autofocusing
  • Circular aperture (9 blades) delivers beautiful, soft backgrounds.
  • Minimum focusing distance of 0.92 ft/0.28m across entire zoom range.
  • Full-time manual focus allows manual focus adjustment while in AF Mode.

Photozone tested and reviewed Canon’s new EF 16-35mm f/4L IS lens. In the verdict they write:

The Canon EF 16-35mm f/4 USM L IS is definitely a step forward for Canon. The lens is capable of delivering an impressive performance throughout most of the range but especially between 16-24mm. The center quality is stellar here and the borders and even corners are sharp. It can’t really reach the same level of peak performance at 35mm but it’s no slouch either here. Canon has mastered the handling of lateral CAs – while not completely absent, they are low unless the contrast change is really extreme. The vignetting is typical for a lens in this class so you have to live with visible light falloff at f/4 especially at 16mm. Image distortions can be disturbing at 16mm but if needed you can apply auto-correction in the more popular RAW converters.

Performance appears to be noticeable improved in the 16-20mm range, Photozone recommends the EF 16-35mm f/4L IS over both the EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM and the Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM.

The review comes with plenty of graphs and lab measures, be sure not to miss it.

Is This The Canon EOS 7D Replacement?

I told you the replacement for the Canon EOS 7D was undergoing professional testing at FIFA 2014 World Cup. Now NL got an image sent in that shows a Canon DSLR that is always covered up. You can see it is a Canon because the lens is made by Canon. According to NL’s source the photographer with the concealed camera is always in the same spot, always shooting with this hidden camera.

I also got serious hints that the NDAs for the EOS 7D replacement will expire at the beginning of September, so the camera in the pic above could definitely be Canon’s new APS-C flagship, and the rumored new 100-400mm telephoto lens.
