Canon Powershot G7 X Mark III Review (more bang per bucks than Sony RX100 VII, ePHOTOzine)

Powershot G7 X

Canon Powershot G7 X Mark III at a glance:

  • 20.2MP 1″ Stacked CMOS Sensor
  • DIGIC 8 Image Processor
  • 4.2x Optical Zoom f/1.8-2.8 Lens
  • 24-100mm (35mm Equivalent)

ePHOTOzine posted a full review of the new Canon Powershot G7 X Mark III. They gave it a rating of 4/5.

From the conclusion:

The G7X III […] offers a number of updates that should impress both photographers and videographers. Including being able to shoot at 30fps (raw burst), or upto 20fps (with JPEG, raw, or both). 

[…] The images from the G7X III, at wide-angle, can be a little soft towards the edges and corners of the frame, and macro performance left us a little disappointed, but in every other situation, results are good. […]

For videographers, the G7 X III with microphone input, 4K video, and 120fps FullHD video will be an easy choice to make, and an immediate purchase choice. There are are only a few minor niggles, that could be the fly in the ointment for some, including the lack of 24fps video recording, and the lens control ring clicks being there. The camera certainly offers much higher “bang per buck” than the RX100 VII fron Sony, which also offers a microphone socket, but at a price of nearly £1200 [and nearly $1,200, editors note].

Canon RF 85mm F/1.2L Review (highest quality standards, ePHOTOzine)

Canon RF 85mm F/1.2L

Canon RF 85mm f/1.2L at a glance:

  • RF-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
  • Aperture Range: f/1.2 to f/16
  • Blue Spectrum Refractive Optics Element
  • One UD Element, One Aspherical Element
  • Air Sphere Coating
  • Ring-Type Ultrasonic Motor AF System
  • Customizable Control Ring
  • Rounded 9-Blade Diaphragm

The Canon RF 85mm f/1.2L lens for the EOS R system is one of those lenses where Canon showcases their skills in lens making. And it showcases what you can do with Canon’s newly developed RF mount. A site notoriously not keen to love Canon gear stated the Canon RF 85mm f/1.2L has a “jaw-dropping” performance.

ePHOTOzine posted their review of the RF 85mm f/1.2L. And it’s our interpretation they couldn’t find any serious flaw. The “cons” list the price, the lack of image stabilisation (it’s a f/1.2 lens), and the bulk of the lens. On the other hand, the list of positive features of the Canon RF 85mm f/1.2L abound: incredible sharpness, no distortion, very low chromatic aberrations, bokeh, quick and precise autofocus, build quality, to name a few.

In the conclusion they write:

The quality of the lenses arriving on the market has arguably never been better. There are some amazing optics and the only downside seems to be that the prices can be equally amazing. The more adventurous the specification of course, the higher that price will be. Thankfully there are still plenty of lower-cost alternatives around, the usual trade-off is that they have more restricted apertures and maybe lighter construction.

But this is a high spec and expensive lens, and, as always, if the photographer can afford it and it fits the need, then buy with confidence as the Canon RF 85mm f/1.2L USM absolutely delivers the goods. The highest quality standards and ease of use add up to a very attractive proposition.
