Yasuhara Anthy 35mm f/1.8 RF Review (Canon EOS R mount)

Yasuhara Anthy 35mm F/1.8 RF Review

Dustin Abbott posted his Yasuhara Anthy 35mm f/1.8 RF review, a third party RF mount lens for the Canon EOS R full frame mirrorless system.

The Yasuhara Anthy 35mm f/1.8 RF will not cost you a fortune, it’s priced at $299. And, according to the reviewer, it has a “beautiful classic build – much like classic Zeiss [lens]”.

Says Dustin Abbott in his conclusion:

For years I have chosen to pull out vintage lenses occasionally despite the fact that they have far more optical flaws than more corrected modern lenses.  Why?  Because often there is a unique character to them that I enjoy despite their flaws.  Images have a c ertain quality to them that I like.  I also sometimes enjoy the “analog” approach of manual focus and a more deliberate style of photography.  It is that part of my inner photographer that can appreciate the Yasuhara Anthy 35mm F1.8 despite some glaring flaws like poor flare resistance, warm color rendering, and the odd vignette effect.  Used in the right settings, the Anthy35 produces images with a rich color palette and nice bokeh falloff.  It has an artistic, retrograde feel that some photographers will love and others will hate.  I hope that this review and the images contained in it have helped you decide which you are.

Canon RF Lens Rumor: A Nifty Fifty And Maybe A Pancake Lens Coming In 2020

Canon EF 40mm Canon Rf Lens Rumor

Here is a new Canon RF lens rumor.

It’s suggested Canon will announce two relatively inexpensive lenses for the Canon EOS R full frame mirrorless system: a 50mm f/1.8 (Nifty Fifty) lens and maybe also a pancake lens with f/2.8.

The source claims that at least the f/2.8 pancake is “definitely in the works” and that we might expect the announcement within the first half of 2020.

The same source claims the 50mm f/1.8 lens has already been shown on a roadmap document, though without any timeframe for the announcement.

This rumor has a high likelihood to be reliable. First, a 50mm f/1.8 lens seems to be just a must for any full frame system, so it’s nothing but straight logic to expect Canon to release it. Secondly, a pancake lens with f/2.8 is also just straight logic, at least at some focal lenght. Both lenses are for sure on Canon’s RF mount roadmap.

Stay tuned for the next Canon RF lens rumor.

Canon Patent: Mirrorless Cam With Very Large Display And Virtual Control Wheel

Canon Patent Application

Here is a Canon patent application (2020-005214, Japan) dealing with a mirrorless camera having a pretty large display on the back.

According to the patent literature, the large display on the back should replace the control wheel you usually find on the back of a Canon camera. As you can see in the image above, a virtual control wheel is displayed (should also have haptic feedback). Moreover, it seems more than one virtual control wheel can be displayed on the display and that there is sort of visual feedback in the electronic viewfinder.

This is pretty cool in our opinion, and definitely might get into production.

More patent applications by Canon are listed here. Some particularly interesting patent applications we think might get into production are these:
