It was pretty quiet in the last months, we didn’t hear anything about new releases or new supported cameras. But Magic Lantern has a newly designed webpage, that is much easier to navigate than the old one. Still the cameras that are supported by a final release of ML (2.3) are:
- 5D Mark II
Amazon UK has this Lightning Deal today: The Canon TS-E 24mm f/3.5 L II tilt-shift lens for £1,484 (see it on dealsrunner). That’s 13% off the regular price. It’s live now and it will last for almost 6 hours.
After having silently posted all specs a few days ago, Sigma put the page offline, and now online again. So, it has officially landed: the new Sigma 24-105mm f/4 DG OS HSM lens for full-frame DSLRs, latest addition to the “Art” line-up. Although Sigma doesn’t specify neither the price nor the date of availability, we know that the latter is November 2013. After the break all the information about Sigma’s newest.

More and more photography sites are testing the Canon EOS 70D, having a particularly sharp eye on its auto-focus performance. The EOS 70D’s Dual Pixel AF performance is so good that dpreview says it outperforms conventional AF.
[...] very impressed with the 70D’s AF functionality. It may be the best AF out there among cameras with larger sensors. This includes the Sony A77 and mirrorless cameras that [they have] used to date. While the A77 is fast and accurate, the autofocus can be a little too “jumpy” at times when shooting video. The 70D moves slow and more natural (like a camcorder) so that the AF isn’t as jarring as it sometimes is with the A77
The video above was made by them. And I totally agree when they say that “the 70D is looking like it’s the best APS-C camera that Canon has released since the 7D“. Well, yes, it is.
