Canon may soon announce a new color option for the Canon Rebel T6, a gray camera body with a brown grip. Canon’s Rebel T6 is EOS 1300D in Europe and Kiss X80 in Japan

Please note that this grey Rebel T6 may well be one of the Canon DSLRs that have been registered at certification authorities a few weeks ago. These Canon DSLRs that have been registered are currently rumored to be the Rebel T7i and Rebel T7s.

Zeiss Milvus 18mm f/2.8 Review – Photography Blog:

The Zeiss Milvus 18mm f/2.8 is a pleasure to use, thanks to its superb build quality and smooth focus ring. As this is a manual-focus only lens, you’d expect this aspect of the operation to be intuitive, and so it proved, especially as the Sony A7R II is geared up for accurate manual focusing, where focus peaking really helps speed up the process and improve the accuracy. The fact that it’s weather-sealed is also a real plus point.

Canon Rebel T6 Review: Can a modest upgrade sustain the popular entry-level Rebel through another generation? – Imaging Resource:

If you’re looking for a DSLR camera which shoots better photos than your smartphone or small-sensor compact camera can offer, and you’re on a very tight budget, well… you’re not likely to find a more affordable DSLR than the Canon T6. At least, not without taking a trip down memory lane to buy an older model. And that older camera likely won’t play nicely with your smartphone, making it harder than it needs to be to put your photos online for friends and family to see, so it’s probably smarter to stick with current offerings.

Canon release firmware updates for EOS 70, EOS 6D, SL1, Rebel T5i and T6

Eos 70d

Canon released a bunch of firmware updates for a set of DSLRs. The update…

corrects a phenomenon in which when using the camera with the EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM or EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM lens, even if lens aberration correction is set to “Enable”, correction will not be applied.

The EOS 6D firmware update won’t fix the EF-S 18-135mm since this lens can’t be used on a full-frame body.

The updates:

Canon will likely add these fixes to more firmware updates for other DSLRs.
