Canon EOS M50 Mark II Review (excellent image quality & colour reproduction)

Canon Eos M50 Mark Ii Review

Here is a Canon EOS M50 Mark II review. How does the replacement for the hugely popular EOS M50 perform? The M50 lineup is popular with videographers.

EOS M50 Mark II at a glance:

  • 24.1MP APS-C CMOS Sensor
  • DIGIC 8 Image Processor
  • UHD 4K and HD 720p120 Video Recording
  • Dual Pixel CMOS AF with Eye Detect AF
  • 2.36m-Dot OLED Electronic Viewfinder
  • 3.0″ 1.04m-Dot Vari-Angle Touchscreen
  • Wi-Fi and Bluetooth; Webcam Capability
  • Extended ISO 51200, 10 fps Shooting
  • Combination 5-Axis Image Stabilization
  • EF-M 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM Lens

ePhotozine posted their full Canon EOS M50 Mark II review. From their conclusion:

Like the model before it, the M50 Mark II offers a compact, DSLR styled mirrorless camera, with a 24mp APS-C CMOS sensor, which gives excellent image quality, with the same excellent colour reproduction that you get with Canon EOS DSLRs. You also get high-speed continuous shooting, 143 focus points, and a high-resolution electronic viewfinder. It’s also one of the cheapest Canon cameras to record 4K video, and the side mic socket will make it appealing for those who want to record video. However, it’s worth being aware of the HUGE crop into the frame when using 4K video with digital IS enabled, as this will make wide-angle video recording difficult unless you buy the 11-22mm ultra-wide angle zoom lens.

They gave the EOS M50 Mark II 4.5/5 starts and a “highly recommended“. For the time being we have no more EOS M50 Mark II review stuff to list.

Canon RF 70-200mm f/4L IS Review (the lens is a winner, D. Abbott)

RF 70-200mm F/4L IS Review

Here is a new Canon RF 70-200mm f/4L IS review. The Canon RF 70-200mm f/4L IS is getting quite popular with people on budget, or simply trying to safe some bucks.

At a glance:

  • RF-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
  • Aperture Range: f/4 to f/32
  • Four Ultra-Low Dispersion Elements
  • Air Sphere and Fluorine Coatings
  • Dual Nano USM AF System
  • Optical Image Stabilizer
  • Customizable Control Ring
  • Weather-Sealed Construction

Dustin Abbott posted his exhaustive Canon RF 70-200mm f/4L IS review. From his conclusion:

The Canon RF 70-200mm F4L IS USM is a winner.  It is incredibly compact, which opens up a whole new way to use the lens and a whole new market of those who wouldn’t mind the premium optics, build, and autofocus of an L series telephoto, but who were unwilling to deal with the bulk and weight of such a lens.  But Canon also has not compromised on the autofocus or image quality performance of this lens […]

The only area to criticize in this new design is that you have to give up the use of teleconverters, which is unfortunate when one considers that the amazing focus systems of the EOS R bodies (particularly the R5 and R6 at the moment) theoretically should make using TCs more seamless than ever before. This is a lens that must be used solely as the bare lens, though one could enable the 1.6x crop on a camera like the EOS R5 if you wanted more crop in camera.

[…] Autofocus performance is excellent. I really like Canon’s Nano USM tech, as it delivers fast, quiet, smooth, and accurate autofocus results. The image stabilizer is also effective even with a higher megapixel body like my EOS R5. I appreciate the solid image quality as well. But what really sets the RF 70-200 F4L apart is the incredibly compact, lightweight nature of the lens that will allow you to treat it like a 24-105mm F4 lens for transport and storage.

As usual Dustin’s reviews come with a huge set of sample pictures, comparison charts, and all the information you might want to know. Dustin’s reviews are what I look for when I am about to purchase new gear. And for those who prefer to watch their reviews, Dustin Abbott provides a comprehensive video-review.

Canon RF 70-200mm f/4L IS Review (a really exciting lens)

RF 70-200mm F/4L IS Review

Here is a new Canon RF 70-200mm f/4L IS review. This lens is a recent addition to the RF lens lineup and has a very compact size.

Canon RF 70-200mm f/4L IS at a glance:

Well known reviewer and Youtuber Christopher Frost posted his Canon RF 70-200mm f/4L IS review, and you can watch it in the video below. He says:

A really exciting (and very expensive) new RF mount lens arrives for Canon EOS R mirrorless cameras. Can it offer great image quality as well as such a small size?

I don’t think the RF 70-200mm f/4L IS is very expensive. Sure it is not a budget lens but neither one of Canon’s boutique lenses.
