Review: Sigma 16mm & 30mm & 56mm f/1.4 DC DN For Canon EOS M

Sigma 16mm

A review for those interested in the Canon EOS M system: Sigma 16mm, 30mm, and 56mm.

Photography Blog posted their review of three Sigma prime lenses, the Sigma 16mm f/1.4 DC DN Contemporary, Sigma 30mm f/1.4 DC DN Contemporary, and Sigma 56mm f/1.4 DC DN Contemporary lenses for the EF-M mount.

From their conclusion:

While the 56mm is undoubtedly our pick of the bunch, all three would make great additions to the rather threadbare camera bag of a Canon EOS M shooter.

This is especially true for the wide-angle Sigma 16mm F1.4 DC DN C and the short-telephoto Sigma 85mm F1.4 DC DN C, as there are no direct rivals in the Canon range […]

It’s a tougher sell for the Sigma 30mm F1.4 DC DN C because of the EF-M 32mm f/1.4 STM, but even then the Sigma is pretty compelling simply because of its price […]

So, if you’re a frustrated Canon EOS M user who has outgrown their kit zoom and doesn’t want to adapt a Canon DSLR lens, the introduction of three well-built, high-quality, ultra-fast Sigma lenses in the native EF-M will be music to your ears.

Canon Rumor: 5 New EOS M Lenses Might Be Announced Within Next 2 Years

Canon Eos M50 Mark Ii

Here is a Canon rumor we got about the future of the EOS M mirrorless camera system.

A new source told us that Canon is planning to expand the EF-M lens lineup with five new lenses. The commercial success of the Canon EOS M50 seems to have motivated Canon to develop new EF-M lenses.

The five lenses that Canon might release over the next two years are:

  • EF-M 15mm f/2 STM
  • EF-M 52mm f/2 STM
  • EF-M 62mm f/4 Macro IS STM
  • EF-M 18-45mm f/2.8-4 IS STM
  • EF-M 100-300mm f/5.6-8 IS STM

According to the source, the EF-M 52mm f/2 STM and EF-M 100-300mm f/5.6-8 IS STM where initially planned to be released in late 2020. The Coronavirus outbreak and the disruptions in supply and manufacturing chains will make it likely that both these lenses will be released in 2021 along with the other lenses.

The next camera Canon will release is the game changing EOS R5. All we know about the R5 is listed here. More Canon rumor stuff is listed here.

Stay tuned.

Canon EOS M5 Mark II Coming October 2020, And New Lenses Too

Canon Eos M5 Mark II

We got some intel from a new source about the Canon EOS M lineup.

The Canon EOS M5 Mark II (all rumors) might be announced later this year, in October 2020. Along with the EOS M5 Mark II, Canon could also announce an EF-M 52mm f/2 STM lens and an EF-M 18-45mm f/2-4 IS STM lens (a new kit lens I guess). The EOS M5 Mark II should have IBIS and 4K video.

The source also shared some bits about the Canon EOS M60, the replacement for the EOS M50, and a EF-M 100-300mm f/5.6-8mm IS STM lens. Both might be announced in 2021.

Stay tuned.
