30 Years of Canon EOS system, interview with Canon UK

30 Years Of Canon EOS System, Interview With Canon UK

Canon is celebrating the 30 years anniversary of the company’s EOS system. Amateur Photographer posted an interview with Canon UK’s David Parry about the 30 years of the Canon EOS system.

In March 1987 Canon took what many viewed as a huge leap into the unknown. They abandoned the FD lens mount, which had been the optical mainstay of the company’s SLRs since 1958 and unveiled its new EOS system with its debut 650 SLR and a trio of new EF mount lenses. At the time this was a controversial move by Canon but we’re pleased to say that thirty years down the line, it was a decision well made.

The EOS System began with three core principles – speed, image quality and ease of use – which still remain at the heart of the system today. Fast forward 30 years from 1987 and the EOS System has seen over 80 million SLRs and 120 million EF lenses sold with the transition from an analogue world to a digital one negotiated along the way.

Canon EF-S 35mm f/2.8 M IS STM to be announced in April

canon rumors

New tidbits about the prime lens for APS-C DSLRs Canon is rumored to announce on April 5. It may be the Canon EF-S 35mm f/2.8 M IS STM.

As you can see it’s not the wide angle lens that was suggested until a few days ago. And there is this “M” in the moniker. Most likely the M stays for macro but we do not know for sure so far.

It’s a pity it’s not a wide angle lens. Hopefully it’s really a macro, possibly with built-in LED lights like on the EF-M 28mm f/3.5 Macro IS STM.
