eos 5d mark iv

DxOMark published their lab-test-based lens recommendation for the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV, best prime lenses and best zoom lenses.

As you can see in the image above, the first three lenses are the Sigma 20mm f/1.4 DG HSM, the Sigma 24mm f/1.4 DG HSM and the Zeiss Distagon T* 15mm f/2.8 ZE.

The best performing (on the EOS 5D Mark IV, image below) zoom lens is the Tamron SP 15-30mm f/2.8 Di VC, followed by the EF 11-24mm f/4L and the Tokina AT-X PRO FX 16-28mm f/2.8.

New Canon gear shows up at registration authorities (DSLRs, mirrorless, Powershots)

Nokishita posted a list of upcoming Canon gear, registered at various registration authorities. I guess some of the items have already been announced, but not the mirrorless camera in the list, since it has a SKU that is not the same as in a previous registration leak. Is the EOS 6D Mark II also in the list? My guess is it is not. The listed DSLRs are most likely new Canon Rebel models, they could be announced in January 2017 at CES. The Powershots too are most likely set to be announced at CES 2o17.

Sigma product advisory for lenses used on Canon EOS 5D Mark IV


Sigma released a product advisory concerning Sigma lenses for EOS system when used on the new Canon EOS 5D Mark IV.

Sigma advisory:

ADVISORY 2016.09.23

Dear Canon EOS 5D Mark Ⅳ Users

Thank you for purchasing and using our products.

Please find the following notes on the usage of SIGMA interchangeable lenses for EOS, when attached to Canon EOS 5D Mark IV that is released on September 8th.

  • MO (Manual Override) function is unavailable with this camera (Full-time Manual function can be offered).
  • When using a SIGMA interchangeable lens for EOS, setting the corrections to [Disable] is recommended, as “Lens Correction” functions of the camera, such as Peripheral illumination correction, Chromatic aberration correction, Diffraction correction and Distortion correction are not supported.** If those functions are activated, the performance of lenses may not be accurate.
    * This is not only for EOS 5D Mark IV, but also for other camera bodies with the same function.

We appreciate your continued support for our company and products
