Canon Powershot G7 X DxOMarked, Scores Better Than Sony RX100 III

Comp_2_scores

DxOMark felt the pulse of Canon’s  Powershot G7 X.

Canon’s new Powershot G7 X may score the same sensor as the Sony RX100 III, but the Powershot got a better DxOMark score (71 vs 67), and has more dynamic range. DxOMark writes:

With a DxOMark Sensor score 71 the G7 X ranks highly in our database rivaling classics such as the original full-frame Canon EOS 5D, the APS-C Nikon D300s and more modern designs such as the micro four thirds Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX7 and GM1 and outperforming the Nikon 1 series models with the same size sensor, such as the S1 at 56 points.

The Canon Lens That’s Rumoured Since Years Said To Appear In November (EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS II)

IMG_154428
This one is real, the EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS

Canon Rumors writes:

We’re told that demo versions of the upcoming replacement for the EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS have hit select photographers hands for field use.

Gosh! This lens is spitted out from the rumor mills probably since 2004 (according to a reader) and for sure since 2008. Now again a suggestion of an imminent announcement surfaces. This time the murmurings say it will look similar to the EF 70-300 f/4-5.6L IS, with a thin focus ring and a wider zoom ring close to the front element. And we should see it in November.

It’s the lens Canon will make out of sympathy, sooner or later 😉
