Canon Rebel SL2/EOS 200D Specifications Suggestion (24MP, Tiltable Screen, Smaller Than SL1) [CW3]

We have a list of possible specs for the upcoming Canon Rebel SL2 (EOS 200D in EU, most likely). As usual take everything with a grain of salt.

  • 24megapixels, same sensor as 750D
  • up-tiltable LCD, it doesn’t tilt down
  • Even smaller than SL1
  • Wireless battery charging, old charger still supplied and works as before
  • Autofocus system the same
  • More colors available
  • Lower price than the introduction price of SL1
  • New battery type

Moreover, the source said that the Rebel SL2 “has a feature to show the current focal length of a zoom lens on the LCD (works for nonzooms too) as long as it’s an EF-S or EF lens that can report this data electronically“. It’s interesting to note that the Rebel SL2 coukd be smaller even than the SL1 (world’s smallest DSLR).

I was expecting the Rebel Sl2/EOS 200D for the end of August but nope. I am pretty sure Canon will announce it in time for the X-Mas business.

If you want let, me know what you think.

More Zeiss Milvus Sample Pictures

Photography Blog posted sets of sample pictures shot with some of the Milvus lenses Zeiss announced yesterday.

The sample pictures were shot with EOS 5Ds R and Sony Alpha a7RII. Pre-order links for all new Zeiss Milvus lenses are online:

Canon EF 600mm F/4 BR DO Prototype Shown At Canon Expo 2015

Canon prototype gear on show at Canon Expo 2015 in NYC. After having posted a picture of the 120MP DSLR prototype, Popular Photography Magazine posted another picture. The EF 600mm BR DO is on display, a “semi-working version”. A patent for such a lens showed up back in July.

The BR stays for Blue Spectrum Refractive Optics, a technology Canon announced in August. BR corrects chromatic aberrations. The technology will be seen first on the Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L II.

The image below shows how the lens will look when finalised.

Zeiss Milvus lenses made for Sony? Lol, no they are not! (inappropriate sarcasm, sample pics, and Milvus presentation slideshow)

Zeiss Milvus Lenses Made For Sony? Lol, No They Are Not! (inappropriate Sarcasm, Sample Pics, And Milvus Presentation Slideshow)

Today’s announcement of the Zeiss Milvus lens line-up appears to excite Sony folks. I can understand. Really. With empathy.

Someone goes so far to say the Zeiss Milvus line-up is made for Sony. No, it’s not. Sorry guys but Zeiss released the Milvus lens family for Canon and Nikon, i.e. for tools used by real photographers. And they are even “affordable”, being Zeiss lenses. Sigma, are you listening? Canon, no need to listen; please take us beyond Blue Spectrum Refractive Optics, and keep us luring with 120MP promises we know you will build one day.

So, no Zeiss Milvus for Sony, D’oh! C’mon, Sony shooters have the Zeiss Loxia line-up. That’s more than enough. 🙂 Just kidding. No wait: Zeiss’ Milvus lenses are made for real cameras. Zeiss Milvus lenses are made for high resolution sensors and gear that works as advised, like the EOS 5Ds.

Back to serious. Sample photos shot with Zeiss’ new Milvus lenses were posted on Flickr (via Photo Rumors):

The presentation of Zeiss’ Milvus lenses can be seen at Photography Blog. Pre-order links for all new Zeiss Milvus lenses are online:

Still wishing you can use them on a Sony? Start with $3,200 for a camera that keeps you warm during winter (oops. I did it again). Sample pics (and no rants nor ravings) after the break.
