Canon EF 200-400mm f/4L IS 1.4x Available For Rent At Borrow Lenses

 EF 200-400mm
Canon EF 200-400mm f/4L IS Extender 1.4x

Want to try out Canon’s new super-telephoto-zoom but can’t afford to pay the price of a small car (>$11.000)? You can rent the lens at Borrow Lenses (click here). Better to hurry up since you have to reserve the lens.

I featured a couple of reviews of the EF 200-400mm f/4L IS 1.4x:

Canon Explorer of Light Peter Read Miller had the opportunity to test the lens at the London Olympics 2012 (source: pixsylated). He says:

So, how does the lens perform? The copy I had was fantastic. I’m not an empirical tester—I just shot the lens daily at the London Olympics for 16 days on my EOS-1D X bodies, almost always wide open and usually under challenging lighting conditions. I think without the extender the sharpness is a match for any Canon prime telephoto and with the extender the performance is as good or better than any prime lens plus extender combination I have ever used. The auto-focus speed on the 1D X body is on a par with the latest Series II lenses. The image-stabilization allowed me to make a sharp photo of the Queen during the opening ceremonies at a shutter speed of 1/100 of a second at 560mm on a monopod.

Canon EF 200-400mm f/4L IS Extender 1.4x can be purchased/pre-ordered at Amazon | Adorama | B&H

Canon PowerShot SX50 HS Review (Imaging Resource)

PowerShot SX50

Canon PowerShot SX50 HS
Amazon, B&H, Adorama, Canon USA, Digitalrev, eBay

Imaging resource reviewed the Canon PowerShot SX50 HS. The cam features a whooping 50x zoom, equivalent to 24-1200mm, and Canon’s Intelligent IS optical image stabilization technology. The reviewer

was extremely happy with the quality of the 12-megapixel images I took with the Canon SX50 HS, especially those I captured at ISO 400 and below. For the most part, the photos — even at full 50x zoom — were pretty sharp and dynamic.

In the conclusion they write:

In most ways the Canon SX50 HS proved to be the long-reaching camera I had longed to use for capturing images of Spring Training baseball. And I strongly suspect it would be as perfect for shooting daytime travel, street, architecture, landscape and wildlife photography as it was for capturing the sights and action of a sunny ballgame.

It was also an equally impressive travel companion in terms of its size, simplicity to use and shooting flexibility. […] The Canon SX50 HS proved to have ample image quality and advanced features to make it a great second or travel camera for serious shooters, and plenty of flexibility to make it a great primary camera for beginning and casual photographers.

The review comes with many sample shots, test charts etc. Specifications (taken from Adorama’s product page):

  • World’s first 50x Optical Zoom (24-1200mm) and 24mm Wide-Angle lens with Optical Image Stabilizer delivers magnificent images whether you are up close or far away
  • 12.1 Megapixel High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor combined with a DIGIC 5 Image Processor creates the Canon HS SYSTEM for improved low-light performance up to ISO 6400 and enhanced image quality
  • Capture stunning 1080p Full HD video in stereo sound with a dedicated movie button; zoom while shooting and play back videos on an HDTV via the HDMI output
  • High Speed AF greatly improves focus speed and High-Speed Burst HQ allows for continuous capture at a maximum of 10 frames while maintaining superb image quality
  • Intelligent IS automatically chooses from six different modes to optimize image stabilization for the shooting condition
  • Bright 2.8-inch Vari-angle LCD with 461,000 dots for shooting at a variety of angles, plus an Electronic Viewfinder
  • Smart AUTO intelligently selects the proper camera settings based on 58 predefined shooting situations and the Face ID function adjusts focus and exposure priority based on pre-registered faces
  • Full range of shooting and recording modes including RAW+JPEG for the ultimate creative control
  • Built-in hot shoe allows compatibility with optional Speedlite flashes for additional lighting options
