Canon EOS M10 Review (simplified User Experience, Good Image Quality, Imaging Resource)

Imaging Resource posted their review of Canon’s entry-level mirrorless camera, the EOS M10.

From the conclusion:

The Canon EOS M10 is a good option for beginning photographers looking for their first interchangeable lens camera. Its mirrorless design allows it to be quite compact while also utilizing relatively small lenses. The camera’s straightforward, simple design may be a negative for some photographers, but we think that it should be considered a plus for beginners who might otherwise be overwhelmed by some of the options on the market. Given the M10’s excellent use of its touchscreen display, we consider it a very user-friendly camera. Read the review…

Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L III review (best f/2.8 wide-angle zoom available, LensRentals)

Canon EF 16-35mm F/2.8L III Review (best F/2.8 Wide-angle Zoom Available, LensRentals)

 Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L III: Amazon USA, B&H Photo, Digitalrev, eBay, Adorama, Canon USA

At a glance:

  • EF-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
  • Aperture Range: f/2.8 to 22
  • Three Aspherical & Two UD Elements
  • Subwavelength & Air Sphere Coatings
  • Ring-Type Ultrasonic Motor AF System
  • Internal Focus; Full-Time MF Override
  • Fluorine Coating on Exposed Elements
  • Dust- and Water-Resistant Construction
  • Rounded 9-Blade Diaphragm

LensRentals felt the pulse of the Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L III

From a resolution standpoint, the Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8  III is the best f/2.8 wide-angle zoom available. You might be better served with the f/4 IS and some money in your pocket. There are also some very good wide-angle f/2.8 zooms available from third party manufacturers that are a lot less expensive and might offer more bang-for-the-buck. But if your style of photography needs the highest resolution you can get with a wide-angle lens, well this is it.

Another point in favour of this professional lens:

[…] sample variation for wide-angle zooms is usually pretty significant, but the new EF 16-35mm f/2.8 III keeps that under pretty good control

All this goodness comes at a price, it’s $2,199.
