The latest rumors suggest that the next Canon DSLR coming to us will be an entry-level model situated below the Canon Rebel SL1 and will be showcased at CP+ next month.
Recall that the Rebel SL1 was announced in March 2013 and turned out to be a fantastic little camera. I liked it so much that I bought one for myself. It is a great camera to carry when paired with the EF 40mm f/2.8 ST lens.
I look forward to seeing if Canon will continue this new compact line, or if this will be more like an update to the very low-end Rebel T3.
B&H has the Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM lens for $129 (reg. $199) with free 2nd day delivery and 2% rewards. Final pricing is shown in the cart.
This is a fantastic lens that should be in every Canon shooter’s bag – and at this price, it really is hard to pass up. Check it out here at B&H Photo.

B&H has the Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM Pancake lens for $149 (reg. $199) now through June 29, 2013. I love this little lens and think it’s a great addition to any Canon DSLR; however, it’s particularly pleasant on APS-C cameras with its 64mm equivalent field of view. Check it out here at B&H Photo.
The compact Canon Rebel SL1 next the iPhone 5
I’ve been running around with the new Canon Rebel SL1 for the past couple days. I’ll have some sample images and a full review later; however, I wanted to take a moment and pass along some first impressions from my brief time with the new camera. [click to continue…]
Canon has issued a firmware update for the EF 40mm f/2.8 STM lens.
Firmware Version 1.2.0 addresses the following phenomenon.
1. If pressure is applied to the lens barrel while the lens is mounted to the camera (pressure can be applied even while attaching the lens cap or while carrying the camera with the lens attached in a bag), the autofocusing function of the lens may stop working.
Note that only the following cameras can be used to install the update: [click to continue…]
