Samyang Premium

Samyang announced a new “Premium” lens line-up with two full-frame lenses. A 85mm f/1.2 and 14mm f/2.4 lens are the first two lenses of the new “Premium” line.

Both are manual focus lenses but have electronic aperture control. Samyang said these lenses can outresolve 50MP sensors and are fit for 8K resolution. The 85mm f/1.2 lens will be available for Canon EF mount only, the 14mm f/2.4 lens will be available for other mounts too.

Canon EOS M5 starting at $899 and getting a $100 pre-order discount? [CW2]

Canon EOS M5 Starting At $899 And Getting A $100 Pre-order Discount? [CW2]

Thanks Emanuel

A member of Chinese forum mobile01 claims to know the US prices of the upcoming Canon EOS M5 mirrorless camera. The weird thing: it’s suggested you get a $100 discount if you pre-order the EOS M5.

However, as weird as the rumor may be, here it is:

  • M5 body only $899, pre-order $799
  • M5 with EF-M 15-45 mm lens $1,098, pre-order $998
  • M5 with EF-M 18-150mm lens $1,198, no pre-order discount

An introduction price of $899 for the EOS M5 is absolutely plausible. On the other hand, it’s hard to believe Canon will need to encourage sales for the EOS M5 with pre-order discounts, since this camera will sell like hot cakes at X-Mas.

Last week some reliable specifications leaked:

  • Sensor: 24.2 million pixel APS-C CMOS
  • Dual Pixel AF
  • Touch AF (you can select AF point on the touchscreen while looking through the viewfinder)
  • DIGIC 7
  • 7fps
  • ISO 100-25600
  • Video: FullHD 60fps
  • Dynamic NFC, Bluetooth built-in
  • Media: SD / SDHC / SDXC card
  • Large tilting LCD monitor
  • Fast Start-Up
  • 5-axis electronic image stabilization (IBIS?)
  • Size: 115.6 x 89.2 x 60.6 mm
  • Weight: 427g

I wonder if such a discount was offered before. What do you think, are the discounts a hoax or the real thing?
