Canon EF-M 32mm f/1.4 vs Sigma 30mm f/1.4 – Which Is The Better Buy?

Sigma 30mm F/1.4

Sigma 30mm f/1.4 or Canon EF-M 32mm f/1.4? Do you own a Canon EOS M mirrorless camera and are you looking for a fast prime lens to use with it? Bear with us.

In the video below, Todd Dominey discusses pro and cons of the Canon EF-M 32mm f/1.4 and the Sigma 30mm f/1.4 lenses. Both have comparable focal lenghts and have a native EF-M mount.

[…] if you own an EF-M mount camera, which lens is the better buy? Which lens produces the best color? Which lens performs best in low light? Which lens is sharper?

Find out in the video below.

I like the Sigma 30mm f/1.4 better.

Is there room/market for an EOS R with APS-C sensor, given the EOS M system?

Sigma 30mm f/1.4 for EOS M key features:

  • EF-M-Mount Lens/APS-C Format
  • 48mm (35mm Equivalent)
  • Aperture Range: f/1.4 to f/16

Canon Rumor: EOS R7 With APS-C Sensor Coming 2021?

Canon Rumo

Here is a new Canon rumor, again mentioning a EOS R with APS-C sensor.

We have always been rather sceptical about the possibilities of an EOS R with APS-C sensor. Is it a real possibility? After Nikon released the Z 50 (with an APS-C sensor) we have at least to consider the possibility of an APS-C EOS R getting announced. Still, it leaves us a bit puzzled. Canon has a rather well accepted mirrorless system with APS-C sensor, the EOS M. Is there really space for an EOS R with crop sensor? I mean: is there a market for an EOS R with crop sensor? Maybe someone among you has some enlightening thoughts about this matter.

However, a new rumor suggests Canon might release a model with APS-C sensor, named Canon EOS R7 by the Internet folks, in 2021. And the same rumor also suggests Canon might release three RF lenses for this APS-C EOS R model. Well, that’s something.

Could a EOS R camera with crop sensor replace the ageing Canon EOS 7D Mark II? It’s at least a possibility to take in account. The EOS 7D lineup was quite popular with wildlife photographers, getting an extended reach due to the crop factor, and it’s likely Canon will not give up such a popular camera. On the other hand, it’s pretty clear that Canon embraced mirrorless technology and is putting a lot of stakes on it. So…what?

In the meantime are all waiting to know the price of what really seems to be an industry game changer, i.e. the Canon EOS R5. And then for the EOS R6, expect to get announced in a few months.

Stay tuned for the next Canon rumor, and sound off in the comment section if you like.

The Optical Viewfinder Is Not Dead, Canon Patent Suggests

Canon Patent

This Canon patent suggests that despite all the mirrorless hype, and even now that Canon announced the development of a new industry game changer, the EOS R5, there is sill need for an OVF (Optical ViewFinder).

Canon patent application 2020-27113A (Japan, spotted by Hi Lows Note) shows that a big company like Canon is still doing R&D on optical viewfinder implementations.
