    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.

    1). Canon EF 70-200 mm f/2.8L IS III USM 

     

    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.

      Effective Pixels: 24Mp Sensor Size: APS-C (22.3 × 14.9mm) Max Image Resolution: 6000 × 4000 Max Video Resolution: 3840 × 2160 @ 23.98p ISO: 100-25600 Lens Mount: Canon EF-M Weight: 390g / 0.86lb Warranty: Limited 1-Year List Price: US $779 | UK £650 | DE €699 Current Price: Amazon  
      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.

      The rumor, or more precisely Canonrumors.com, has it that we can expect the premiere of two full-frame mirrorless Canon cameras in the middle of 2019.
       
      The first camera will be equipped with the 30.4Mp sensor and it will probably be a sensor similar to the one used in Canon EOS 5D Mark IV. The second “budget” model will be equipped with a sensor of lower resolution, possibly around 24Mp.
       
      Of course, both cameras will record videos in 4K and in the higher model we can expect more advanced solutions.
       
      Mounting of the new Canon cameras is, as for now, a secret, but it seems that we can expect something “sexy”. As for now, we don’t have any reports concerning new Canon cameras names.
       
      Competitiveness in the industry has never resulted in anything bad when it comes to the customers so, after the announcements of the premieres of full-frame mirrorless Nikon and Canon cameras, the market of such devices, dominated by Sony, should become more diverse.
