  • A large number of 15-45mm lenses are decentered.  The problem is most apparent when shooting at the wide end and stopping down never really fixes the issues. Looking at your first image shot at ...
  • And how many EF mount third party lenses were sold in the same time period?  Without a technology sharing/licensing agreement, Canon makes absolutely no money on the sales of third party lenses.  ...
  • Ensuring 3rd party products work appropriately and protecting proprietary technology are not mutually exclusive.  Smart companies do both.  Go take a look at a company like Apple.  Not only does ...
  • Replied in Two things...
    Actually, No.  Nothing in the patents stipulates that these are interchangeable lenses.  The 18-200mm design could be for a new G3X with APS-C sensor.  Also, just because these are APS-C designs ...
  • Keep in mind none of the M system cameras have IBIS. As others have mentioned, the closest match to your current setup would be the EF-M 22mm f2.0 and EF 50mm f1.8 STM.  The latter lens is a DSLR ...
  • Replied in Two things...
    Most of the designs in this patent are actually around 10mm to 13mm back focus.  Back focus is NOT the same thing as flange distance.  Absolutely nowhere in this patent is flange distance ...
  • Replied in Two things...
    1.  New Canon lenses almost never ever show up as a patent before launch.  The vast majority of published Canon lens patents are the engineering rejects.  With any new lens, Canon runs multiple ...
  • That line of reasoning is so last century.  No single manufacturer can produce every single item you may need to fully use their product.  No matter how large the product catalog, most consumers ...
  • With the slower lens and smaller sensor, the difference is fairly significant 1 and 2/3 stops.  Sony and Fuji can get within 1/2 stop using f1.4 lenses, and m4/3 can get within 3/4 stop using a ...
  • Numbers may have changed in 2018, but up through 2017, the M system market share was just too small.  Sony was selling about 3 times as many mirrorless cameras and m4/3 sales were about double the ...
  • What you think you are seeing in these two images is not reality.  Your second image with the M50 and 22mm completely missed focus.  The focus plane landed somewhere around your son's ears.  Also, ...
  • Replied in Absolutely NOT
    Or possibly a 1" sensor video camera like the XC15.

    Not only is this patent for adapting DSLR lenses, but the optical formulas are for EF-S crop DSLR lenses.  Also, the rear element of the speedbooster sits 2mm away from the image sensor.  The ...
  • No, the EF-M mount was developed as a reaction to the very compact and popular m4/3 and Sony NEX models that were the beginning of mirrorless.  Everyone was trying to sell "small", and full frame ...
  • While everything you wrote about full frame crop modes is true, please show me a 62mp full frame camera with a "lower spec and/or older generation sensor" that sells for around $1500.
  • A lower end R will not offer advanced features and the current R is basically at 6D levels. The magnification is not an "illusion".  Higher pixel density typically produces better image quality ...
  • Nope.  Consider the current photographer with a 7D series camera and a 5D series camera.  What you are proposing would be a complete disaster.  The eminent RF mount 70-200mm f2.8 will be a ...
  • The Metabones speedbooster is a 5 element 4 group design, and it is physically shorter in depth than a standard mount converter.  All of the speedbooster fits into the gap between a long flange ...
  • Will absolutely happen.  Canon would not be so stupid to abandon the pro/prosumer crop market currently served by the 80D and 7D II.
  • Currently available Canon bodies include; 6 full frame DSLRs, 11 APS-C DSLRs, 1 full frame mirrorless, and 4 APS-C mirrorless. The crop DSLRs lineup is overdue for some trimming as there are models ...
