Canon EOS 70D First Independent Auto-Focus Test Videos

eos 70d

Canon EOS 70D body only - $1199 – Amazon | Adorama | B&H | DigitalRev
Canon EOS 70D with 18-55mm lens – $1349 – Amazon | Adorama | B&H | DigitalRev
Canon EOS 70D with 18-135mm lens – $1549 – Amazon | Adorama | B&H | DigitalRev

Polish site Optyzcne (translated, source: FA) published (along with their review) what I think are the first non Canon produced, real world tests of the Dual Pixel CMOS Auto-Focus system of the new Canon EOS 70D. They used the Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM and Canon EF 100mm f 2.8L Macro IS USM lenses with different settings (see titles of the videos).

So far I have to say that I am fairly impressed with the high ISO performance of the EOS 70D sensor, see the crop I extracted from a ISO 3200 sample pic. The EOS 70D is the new leader of the pack in Canon’s APS-C line-up. That poses an interesting question: does a successor of the EOS 7D still have a reason to exist? In other terms: what features must the 7D Mark II have to top the EOS 70D? And what about the EOS 8D that showed up as a placeholder on Russian online seller fotoplus.su? More to follow.

Canon EOS M Ranked First and Second On Amazon US Best Seller List

Canon EOS M

The Canon EOS M is ranked first (kit with 22mm STM) and second (kit with 18-5mm) on Amazon US’ Best Seller list for compact system cameras. Not really surprising, given yesterdays huge price drops on both kits. Please note that since yesterday some kits are no longer available by some of the listed sellers. Hurry up if you are on the fence for an EOS M. This is the best moment to get one.

The EOS M kit with the EF-M 22mm is the best bargain here, consider that the lens alone usually sells for $249. The EF-M is an excellent prime for the EOS M, very compact and lightweighted, and with good optical performance and build quality.

These are never seen price drops for the EOS M kits. And now that the EOS M got the long awaited firmware update that solved all the Auto-Focus issues, these kits are even more interesting. Click here to see how much the new firmware improves AF performance.
