First Canon EOS 6D Mark II specification list surfaces (4K, 25MP) [CW2]

First Canon EOS 6D Mark II Specification List Surfaces (4K, 25MP) [CW2]

A first list of possible Canon EOS 6D Mark II specifications surfaced at Canon Rumors.

  • announcement first half of 2017 (CP+?)
  • 25MP sensor (with possible prototypes being around)
  • tiltable screen
  • dual SD card slots
  • might have 4K
  • less weight and smaller size

I think we can be pretty sure that the Canon EOS 6D Mark II (previous rumors) will also have Dual Pixel AF and an updated AF system. The articulating screen is also very likely. I do not think the EOS 6D Mark II will have Dual Pixel RAW (featured on the EOS 5D Mark IV).

Zeiss Milvus APO Sonnar 135mm f/2 review (little bit of perfect)

Zeiss Milvus APO Sonnar 135mm F/2 Review (little Bit Of Perfect)

Zeiss Milvus APO Sonnar 135mm f/2: B&H Photo | Adorama

  • EF-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
  • Aperture Range: f/2 to f/22
  • 4 Anomalous Partial Dispersion Elements
  • Apochromatic Sonnar Optical Design
  • Floating Elements System
  • Zeiss T* Anti-Reflective Coating
  • Manual Focus Design
  • Anodized Metal Barrel, Rubber Focus Ring
  • Weather-Sealed Construction

Photographer and reviewer Dustin Abbott tested the new Zeiss Milvus APO Sonnar 135mm f/2 lens. And he is pretty fond of it.

He writes:

It is fairly large and definitely heavy, but this isn’t unusual in the current trend of full frame lens design.  Despite these very real challenges the lens is a masterful option for those looking for the ultimate 135mm lens.  It’s a joy to shoot with, and produces images that look amazing right out of the camera.  If you pride yourself on doing minimal post processing, you will love the Zeiss Milvus APO Sonnar 2/135mm; images look great without being touched.  If you are looking for a magical telephoto for shooting video, you will love this lens.  It is special, and I’m so glad that it has found its way into the Milvus lineup.

Dustin Abbott praises the “superb optical performance that is rarely matched and never outdone“. A sample pictures gallery is here. You can go for the written review, or watch the 16 minutes full review video below.
