Imaging Resource put their comprehensive Canon EOS 80D review online, and it’s another highly positive review about what starts to appear to be an absoute winner for Canon. As IR puts it: “an all-around excellent DSLR with a good combination of image quality, advanced features, great build quality, and a good price point“.

In the conclusion they write:

The camera is an excellent, well-built DSLR that produces reasonably sharp, detailed photographs and high quality Full HD video. It’s comfortable to hold with classic Canon DSLR styling, ergonomics and controls, and its versatile AF system is great — especially thanks to Dual Pixel CMOS AF. The 80D feels like a tried-and-true Canon DSLR — nothing over the top, ground-breaking or revolutionary, just what it’s meant to be. It’s a straightforward camera that works well, performs well, and captures pleasing images. Read the review…

Canon EF-M 35mm f/1.8 STM lens coming Summer 2016? [CW3]

Canon EF-M 35mm F/1.8 STM Lens Coming Summer 2016? [CW3]

I’ve been told (thanks) that Canon will announce a EF-M 35mm f/1.8 STM lens during Summer or late Summer 2016, in any case before Photokina 2016.

Unfortunately, I got no specs about the EF-M 35mm f/1.8 STM lens. It’s not the first time such a lens is rumored. I think there will be new lenses for the EOS M system in 2016 (something Canon itself stated), and a 35mm f/1.8 appears to be a pretty likely choice.

On an APS-C sensor a 35mm lens is equivalent to a 56mm lens on full-frame (Canon’s APS-C sensors have a crop factor of 1.6). 50-55mm is a very classic focal lenght that should be available for every camera system. For the time being there is only one prime lens for the EOS M system, the EF-M 22mm f/2 STM (equiv. 35mm). If Canon has to make one and only one additional prime lens for the EOS M system, then it will be a 35mm lens.

In the meantime we are waiting for the EF-M 28mm Macro lens that leaked last week. Stay tuned…
