Review

While the EOS R is Canon’s first foray into full-frame mirrorless cameras, the EOS R feels like anything but a first-generation product.

News/Rumors

From f/1.2 primes to the mysterious DS, here are Canon’s upcoming RF lenses

Canon's EOS R mirrorless series will gain six new lenses this year. Canon just shared a list of six lenses under development, including four zooms and two prime lenses. One has a mysterious new feature called Defocus Smoothing.

Nikon brings a classic workhorse lens to the Z series with new 24-70mm f/2.8 S

The Nikon Z series finally has a bright zoom available without an adapter. The Nikkor Z 24-70mm F/2.8 S offers new coatings and more customizable controls in a smaller, lighter body than the comparable F-mount lens.

Manufacturer
Canon
Japanese camera manufacturer Canon has been one of the largest names in the camera industry since long before photography became a digital concern. The company has been making film-based, and then digital cameras for every skill level and practical form of recording still images and video since 1934. The company is also a major manufacturer of consumer and industrial printers. Fun fact: Canon made a very brief foray into making computers and “word processors” (typewriters) in the early 1980s, but gave up on the technology by the end of the decade.
