A new EF 50mm f/1.4 lens coming in 2018?

A long running rumor got a fresh up. It’s about a new EF 50mm “L” lens.

Two prototypes of this lens are now rumored to undergo testing, one of them being the EF 50mm f/1.4L ISand the other beng unknown. This lens likely shares some of the design and technology that have gone into the new EF 85mm f/1.4L IS.

A candidate announcement date for the new EF 50mm lenses is sometimes in the first half of 2018.

Apparently, a previous prototype of the lens was discarded because Canon now has new technology to use for the design of the lens.

Take it with a huge grain of salt.



Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark III coming mid October, 2017?

Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark III Coming Mid October, 2017?

So far the Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark III was rumored for September, 2017. A new rumor from the web suggests it will be mid October, 2017 (October 17 is actually speculated)

We still know as much as nothing but a few bits about the Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark III. We can be sure of an announcement (bar the date) because it showed up at a registration authority, which in our experience is a pretty good sign that the announcement can’t be far away.

However, it’s very likely that the PowerShot G1 X Mark III will have an APS-C sensor. This has been confirmed to us several times. Then there is a patent for a lens that may refer to the PowerShot G1 X Mark III.

The list below is all we have got specification-wise:

  • 24mp APS-C Sensor (was 1.5″ sensor)
  • Dual Pixel AF
  • DIGIC 7
  • 24-120mm lens (35mm equivalent)

We keep you posted, stay tuned!
