The Phoblographer reviewed the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM lens, the first lens for APS-C DSLRs that has constant f/1.8 over the zoom range. All other reviews I featured here on Canon Watch are in line with this one: all praise the excellent build quality, the great sharpness, the fact that this is an outstanding lens. The Phoblographer’s findings weren’t different. Read more after the break.

Canon Rumor: New Canon SpeedLites Coming in 2013 (and new Yongnuo flashes too)

Canon SpeedLites

Two new Canon flashes rumored to be announced before end of 2013. One could be the replacement for the Canon Speedlite 430EXII, the other one a new flash for the EOS M system (source: CR)

Not a rumor but it fits well in this post. Yongnuo announced the YN510EX flash, compatible off camera only with Canon’s E-TTL flash systems. Yongnuo makes inexpensive yet effective flash systems for Canon DSLR (among other brands). The Yongnuo YN510EX could cost somewhat between $75 and $125 (source: lightingrumours via slrlounge). Pics and press release after the break.
