Canon EOS 70D DxOmarked

The Canon EOS 70D got DxOmarked (click here for the results), and achieved the best score for a Canon APS-C sensor: 68. That’s 2 points more than the EOS 60D and the EOS 7D, still less than other DSLR. Keep in mind that these are pure engineerical measures, they do not say much about real life performance.

Rumor: New Canon L Lenses in September

The EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II lens, one of Canon’s most regarded lenses

Take it with a grain of salt, I didn’t hear about this. A new rumour that surfaced on the web suggests Canon may announce some new “L”-grade lenses in late september. No mention about the focal range or other information about the lenses. That’s all :)

Canon USM and STM Lenses Video Comparison (using the EOS 70D)

Canon’s STM lenses are aimed at videographers. The Stepper Motor (that’s the STM) promises quiet operation while shooting video. But how do the produced noise and the speed compare to Canon’s USM (Ultra Sonic Motor) lenses? That’s what YouTube user marconilanna tries to find out in the video above. In summary: STM lenses are definitely less noisy but a bid slower than the USM lenses. On the other hand being a bit slower allows STM lenses to refocus more smoothly. A Canon EOS 70D was used for the test.
