Are These The Canon EOS R7 Specifications? Announcement in Summer 2022?

It seems the Canon EOS R7 is coming. I still have a hard time buying it, but I might well be wrong.

Born again Canon Rumors posted a set of alleged Canon EOS R7 specifications. They seem to be pretty confident it is the real thing. Here they are:

  • 32.5mp APS-C Dual Pixel CMOS AF
  • 15-30fps (mechanical/electronic)
  • 2x UHS-II supported
  • 4K @ 60/50fps (NTSC/PAL)
  • 1080p @ 120/100fps (NTSC/PAL)
  • C-Log 3/HDR PQ
  • In-Body IS
  • Announcement in June/July 2022

The EOS R7 (moniker invented by the community) would be a mirrorless camera with an APS-C imaging sensor and the RF mount. Along with the set of specification comes the years old suggestion that the Canon EOS M system is dead. We will see. Time will tell. Any ideas about the topic are welcome.

Stay tuned, and skeptical.

Canon RF 28-70mm f/2L Review (monster of a lens with monster performance)

Canon RF 28-70mm F/2L Review Rf Mount Canon Eos R

Here is a new Canon RF 28-70mm f/2L review. The RF 28-70mm f/2 is one of Canon’s “boutique lenses” for the EOS R system.

At a glance:

  • RF-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
  • Aperture Range: f/2 to f/22
  • Ultra-Low Dispersion Elements
  • Ring-Type Ultrasonic Motor AF System
  • Customizable Control Ring
  • Rounded 9-Blade Diaphragm

Optical Limits posted their fuzll Canon RF 28-70mm f/2L review, and they underline the many virtues of this not-budget lens, of this outstanding lens. From their conclusion:

The Canon RF 28-70mm f/2 USM L is everything that you can expect from it – it is a monster of a lens with a monster performance. This is especially true for the broader center quality which is as good as on the best prime lenses. The outer image field is also superb in the lower zoom range. The corners soften a bit at 70mm but remain easily on a good level. That’s on a 45-megapixel sensor. On 20 to 30 megapixels, the lens is almost perfect. The native image distortions can be noticeable at 28mm but not an issue beyond. The native vignetting is quite high at f/2 but that’s no different from prime lenses. Auto-correction comes to the rescue in both cases, of course. Lateral CAs are absolutely negligible. The quality of the bokeh is good but there is a little room for improvement here. However, that’s complaining on a very high level really. The rather massive focus-breathing isn’t ideal for videos though.

The build quality is excellent which isn’t surprising given its professional target audience. The materials and assembly quality are top of the class. Weather-sealing is a natural feature at this price point anyway […] Read the review at Optical Limits…

Canon RF 100-400mm f/5.6-8 IS Review (solid lens for the money, D. Abbott)

RF 100-400mm F/5.6-8 IS Review

Here is another Canon RF 100-400mm f/5.6-8 IS review, by one of our favorite gear reviewer. Although it is not an “L” tier lens, the Canon RF 100-400mm f/5.6-8 IS gets a lot of very positive reviews.

At a glance:

  • RF-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
  • Aperture Range: f/5.6 to f/45
  • One UD Element, One Aspherical Element
  • Super Spectra Coating
  • Nano USM AF Motor
  • Maximum Magnification: 0.41x at 400mm
  • Optical Image Stabilizer
  • Customizable Control Ring
  • Rounded 9-Blade Diaphragm

Dustin Abbott posted his exhaustive Canon RF 100-400mm f/5.6-8 IS review. From Dustin’s conclusion:

[…] a truly portable lens that brings this incredible focal range into the kind of size and weight combination that many more photographers can cope with.

[…] For the money, this is a solid lens. It definitely has its limitations, but it pulls off this challenging focal range in a pretty convincing faction…and that small size might mean that even those with deeper pockets might pick one up just for the sake of its portability. This is a solid move for Canon, and the RF 100-400 IS is a lens I suspect will sell very well for them.

[…] it will also work fine for those that shoot action, birds, or wildlife in reasonably good light. The autofocus is quick and quiet, and I had no problem locking onto subjects. Just be realistic about the kinds of lighting situations that you’ll be able to get enough shutter speed to stop action, and you’ll be fine. I can see this lens being a “bridge” lens for many – the telephoto option they can afford now while they save (or hope) for a more premium option in the future. For the money, this is a solid lens.

As usual Dustin Abbott’s reviews come with sample images, comparison charts, and all the information you might want to know. Dustin’s reviews are what I look for when I am about to purchase new gear. As usual Dustin Abbott also releases a complete video review. See below.

Canon RF 35mm f/1.2L or f/1.4L Eventually Coming Summer 2022?

Rf 24mm F/1.8 Rf-s Canon Eos R7 Eos R100 Canon High Resolution Eos R R10 Eos C5 Eos R1 Eos R5c Canon Rf 16mm Rf 35mm F/1.2L EF Lenses Tilt-shift Lenses Rumor

Canon RF 35mm f/1.2L is rumored almost since the beginning of the EOS R system era. And it’s rumored for a good reason: their is no doubt Canon will eventually release this lens, sooner or later.

The Canon RF 35mm f/1.2L got a new mention, and it’s suggested the lens is already in the “hands of testers and marketing folks and recently appeared in an internal dealer roadmap”. There is a bit of uncertainty if it will be f/1.2 or f/1.4, though. Why not both?

All Canon rumors are listed here. Stay tuned.

Canon RF 14-35mm F/4L IS Review (a beauty delivering lovely results)

Canon RF 14-35mm F/4L IS Review

Here is a Canon RF 14-35mm F/4L IS review. A rather enthusiastic review, we might add.

At a glance:

  • RF-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
  • Aperture Range: f/4 to f/22
  • Three UD Elements
  • Three Aspherical Elements
  • Air-Sphere and Fluorine Coatings
  • Nano USM AF System
  • Optical Image Stabilizer
  • Customizable Control Ring
  • Rounded 9-Blade Diaphragm

ePhotozine posted their full Canon RF 14-35mm F/4L IS review. They gave the lens a 5/5 rating and an “editor’s choice” mention. From their conclusion:

Some lenses just gel and just get on with the job, performing flawlessly and smoothly and not getting in the way of image-making. This is such a lens; what a beauty it is and what lovely results it delivers.

The extra 1mm compared to the existing 15-35mm lens should not be underestimated, as such a difference is much more significant in an ultra-wide than, say, the difference between a 100mm and 105mm lens would be. The loss of 1 stop of speed does mean a lighter, more compact lens that also costs significantly less. This makes a good choice for travel photography.

In summary, a superb offering from Canon and without doubt an ‘Editor’s Choice’.

Canon RF 100-400mm f/5.6-8 IS Review (a surprising lens and pretty darn good)

RF 100-400mm F/5.6-8 IS Review

Here is a Canon RF 100-400mm f/5.6-8 IS review. An affordable lens for the Canon EOS R system.

At a glance:

  • Aperture Range: f/5.6 to f/45

  • Super Spectra Coating

Admiring Light posted their Canon RF 100-400mm f/5.6-8 IS review. Says the reviewer in the conclusion:

[…] the RF 100-400mm f/5.6-8 IS USM [is a] a surprising lens. When it was first introduced, it was easy to dismiss as a slow, cheap consumer zoom that probably wasn’t very good. Well, it does have a slow maximum aperture, and it is fairly inexpensive, but it is pretty darn good. While it isn’t going to challenge the RF 100-500mm f/5-7.1L in ultimate image quality, the lens manages to produce images with very good sharpness, nice bokeh and overall high image quality. The lens also has an excellent image stabilizer, fast and accurate autofocus and is small and light enough to be a lens that makes it into your bag every day.

This last part is key. Before this lens, I usually dreaded carrying lenses longer than 200mm. With the 100-400mm, it’s a pleasure to have in my bag. It can fit in the vast majority of camera bags with no issues, and weighs less than the RF 24-105mm f/4L. This compact size, along with the excellent AF and good optics makes this a perfect lens to carry for daily shooting. It’s a great bargain and a lens most Canon R shooters should consider for their kit. Highly recommended.
