Years in the making, the Canon 5D Mark IV is finally official and ships in a couple weeks (September 8 to be exact). If you’ve been following the rumor mill, there isn’t really much of a surprise here. It has everything we’ve expected and looks pretty good across the board. [Read more…]
I loving seeing these displays of lenses and other photo product cutaways at trade shows and expos. At the Canon Expo in New York last week, Canon had its EF 16-35mm f/4L IS USM and EF 11-24mm f/4L USM lenses on display with them cut perfectly in half.
This gave us a view of the incredible engineering that goes into these modern professional lenses.
After plenty of leaks, the Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS USM and EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM lenses have been officially announced. As expected, the 16-35mm f/4L IS USM lens comes in at a significantly higher price point ($1199) than the non-stabilized EF 17-40mm f/4L USM lens.
However, a nice surprise for Canon APS-C shooters is that the EF-S 10-18mm lens comes in at a very affordable $299. The 10-18mm zoom range (16-28.8mm full frame equivalent) mates nicely with Canon’s current affordable EF-S 18-55mm and 55-250mm lenses, both of which also feature the new STM focus motor.
