Canon RF 50mm f/1.2L DxOMarked (step up from EF 50mm f/1.2L)

Canon RF 50mm F/1.2L

DxOMark tested the Canon RF 50mm f/1.2L lens for the EOS R mirrorless system.

The Canon RF 50mm f/1.2L is a remarkable lens, made to showcase the capabilities of the RF mount. DxOMark gave it a score of 38. This score puts the Canon RF 50mm f/1.2L among the top five 50mm lenses in DxOMark’s rating. However, it’s clearly below the score of lenses that costs much less, e.g. the Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM and the Zeiss Milvus 50mm f/1.4 (both not f/1.2).

From DxOMark‘s conclusion:

There isn’t a huge pool of f/1.2 50mm lens to compare the Canon RF 50mm f/1.2L USM against, and most of its competitors have a maximum aperture of f/1.4 or f/1.8. If optimum image quality is your major concern, then the Sigma 50mm F1.4 DG HSM A makes for a better choice, although it can’t be mounted directly on Canon’s mirrorless cameras. However, if you need the extra 1/3-stop of light, then the RF lens makes a good solid proposition that is a step up from the older Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L USM.

Canon Rebel SL3 Review (strong fun factor, DPReview)

Canon Rebel SL3

Canon Rebel SL3 at a glance:

  • 24.1MP APS-C CMOS Sensor
  • DIGIC 8 Image Processor
  • 3.0″ 1.04m-Dot Vari-Angle Touchscreen
  • UHD 4K Video and 4K Time-Lapse Movie
  • 9-Point AF System; Dual Pixel CMOS AF
  • ISO 100-25600
  • Built-In Wi-Fi and Bluetooth

DPReview posted their full review of what is the world’s smallest DSLR, the Canon Rebel SL3. The Canon Rebel SL3 got a rating of 79% and a Silver Award.

From the conclusion:

The EOS Rebel SL3 is, overall, a nice little camera with a strong ‘fun factor’ appeal, delivers good image quality and offers the versatility of both an optical viewfinder and a really polished live view experience on the rear screen. For those who don’t want or need the optical finder or the battery life the SL3 offers, I think the EOS M50 is a better fit. But there are those who will end up preferring the larger size and more comfortable grip of the SL3.

The SL3 not the best camera in its category for those wanting to shoot video (and if you already have a modern phone, it’s best to just use that, honestly), it’s not the best option for shooting fast action sports, and it’s not for power users that need more controls. But it just isn’t meant to fulfill those needs – the excellent guide mode for beginners should be evidence enough of that. The SL3 succeeds in producing reliably good image quality under a variety of conditions, and with minimal fuss.

  • Ring-Type Ultrasonic Motor AF System
  • Optical Image Stabilizer

Photography Blog posted their full review of the Canon EF 70-200mm F2.8L IS III lens. They gave the Canon EF 70-200mm F2.8L IS III a rating of 4.5/5 and highly recommended.

From the conclusion:

The new EF 70-200mm F2.8L IS III USM is a rather modest update of Canon’s venerable 70-200mm F2.8 lens for professional users, replacing the 9 year old Mark II version by introducing a small number of minor improvements, most notably new lens coatings to help reduce flare/ghosting and to assist with keeping the lens clean. 

So while there’s little reason for owners of the previous version to rush out and buy this new edition, any Canon owner looking for a great 70-200mm F2.8 lens should definitely add the Mark III to their shopping list.

[the Canon EF 70-200mm F2.8L IS III USM] offers better all-round optical performance than its predecessor thanks to the new lens coatings, whilst delivering the same feature-set and build quality. Read the review…
