This is a question that comes up quite often, so I am providing a brief explanation to answer it for those users new to the Canon DSLR system. [Read more…]
Rokinon’s new 16mm f/4 ED AS UMC CS lens is now available for pre-order for $479 with expected availability on August 8. This lens is built for APS-C sensors. As such, the Canon EF-S version offers a field of view equivalent to 25.6mm on a full frame camera. While Nikon, Sony, Fuji X-Series and other APS-C cameras will get a 24mm equivalent field of view. Check it out here at B&H Photo.
A whole bunch of Canon factory refurbished lenses are available from B&H and Adorama at solid discounts over retail prices. Check out the list below. [Read more…]
Adorama has a couple of solid deals on Canon EF-S lenses right now. (Note, you must add them to your cart to see the deal price.)
Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM for $679 (reg. $859)
Canon EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM for $639 (reg. $799)
I’m not sure when these expire, so these deals may or may not be around for long.
Rumored lenses include an EF-S zoom fisheye lens, as well as a new macro IS lens. As noted by CR, the EF-S 18-200mm IS lens is due for a replacement and would be a logical choice to get Canon’s new STM focus motor to play nice with video AF on entry-level DSLRs like the Canon Rebel T4i and its eventual successor.
