    Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS III USM Announcement

      News

    Canon presented the EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS III USM lens, dedicated for professionals. Unfortunately, no breakthrough has taken place and the changes in comparison to the predecessor are rather minor.

     

    The optical system consists of 23 elements placed in 19 groups (5 low-dispersion lenses and one fluorite lens), the 8-blade aperture can be closed up to the value of f/32 and the stabilization system has the efficiency of 3.5 EV. The lens is equipped with an ultrasonic ring autofocus drive – the minimum focus distance is 1.2m. One of very few novelties of a new lens are anti-reflective ASC coatings. The front and rear lens have been covered with fluorite coatings, which help in keeping the lenses clean.

    The body of the lens presented today is made of magnesium and fully sealed, thanks to which it is resistant to dust and splashes. In the set, we will find a tripod mount and a sun shield. The lens weighs 1440 and its dimensions are 89 x 199mm.

     

    The lens will appear on sale in August 2018 and it will costs $2100.

      DESCRIPTION OF THE CANON EOS M50
      Canon EOS M50 is an attractive camera from the EOS M series because Canon has placed a wide range of functions in a small body. Some of these functions appear in the cameras from the series for the first time.

      The camera is equipped with the 24-Mp CMOS sensor (with the ISO range  of 100 - 51200), in APS-C format, supported by the latest DIGIC 8 processor, which enables continuous shooting with the speed of 10f/s and recording films in 4K. However, in the second case, we will be limited by  a 1.6× crop factor (2.25× with the stabilization system turned on) and a phase-detection autofocus.

      The camera is also equipped with a phase-detection Dual Pixel AF, which has been well-rated by us during the tests. The autofocus is perfect for recording films and it is supposed to become event more efficient, thanks to 143 AF points and 100%vertical frame coverage (with selected lenses). 

      What's more, we also have a 2.36Mp built-in electronic viewfinder, which will be surely appreciated by more professional photographers, and a rotating touch LCD screen, with the resolution of 1.04Mp, which is supposed to significantly facilitate camera operation and navigation through the photographs and the preview mode. 

      Canon has also introduced a new, C-RAW, image format, which saves full-size RAWs in a 40% smaller file, extended wireless functions (by adding a possibility of sending photographs immediately during takim them), a possibility of silent photography (electronic shutter mode) and support for the EOS Utility program, which enables easy tethering and controlling the camera from the computer.

      With the use of M50, we will also be able to record time-lapses in 4K and slow-motion films in HD, with the speed of 120 f/s. In addition, as one of really few cameras in its class, it offers a microphone connection, thanks to which it may become popular among vloggers and other people who like to record films and transfer them to the Internet.

      Two of the biggest telephoto Canon lenses - EF 400mm f/2.8L IS III USM and EF 600mm f/4L IS III USM have become renewed. In their third versions, the devices have significantly lost on weight, they became sealed and their ergonomy has significantly improved. 
       
      Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L IS III, with the dimensions of 163 x 343mm, lost more than one kilogram - from 3850g to 2840g. A slimming treatment of the bigger of the lenses, EF 600mm f/4L IS III USM, has been a little less successful and the lens now weights 3050g (its predecessor -  3920g) and it has the dimensions of 168 x 448mm. Both lenses have been sealed and the white finishing which characterizes the lenses from the L series is thermal insulation, thanks to which the devices are supposed to work better in extreme temperatures. In order to facilitate keeping the lenses clean, the external surfaces of the first and the last lens have been covered with the fluorine coating. 
       

      1). Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L IS III USM
       
      Both lenses are equipped with the control elements on the body enabling focus adjustment, blocking and stopping focus settings. With the use of the ring knob we can go to two pre-programmed focus positions at any time. The focus mode, focus range, programmed focus restoration and the IS controllers are placed ergonomically.
       

      2). Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L IS III USM
       
      The optical systems of both lenses are similar - in both of them we have seventeen lenses placed in thirteen groups, a 9-blade aperture which can be closed up to f/32, while the nominal aperture for 400 mm is f/2.8 and for 600mm - f/4. In both lenses we will find the elements of fluorite lenses and the SubWavelenght Structure Coating (SWC) so we can expect significant reduction in chromatic aberration, flares and blurring while maintaining high quality of the reproduced colors, high resolution and contrast. 
       

      3). Canon EF 600mm f/4L IS III USM
       
      The autofocus has also been treated as priority. New Canon lenses are equipped with ring USM motors with autofocus and an effective processor enabling fast and quiet AF work. Both lenses make it possible to obtain the  "pull-focus" effect with focus regulation and focus preset. Manual focus adjustment in full-time is also available and the focusing speed can be adjusted also by manual electronic regulation. 
       

      4). Canon EF 600mm f/4L IS III USM
       
      The lenses are to appear on sale in December and they will cost respectively:
