September 28, 2017 Canon EOS 6D Mark II Review

One of my most popular articles that I’ve ever written was entitled, “Why I chose a Canon 6D over a 5D Mark III”. The original Canon 6D was a bit of a unicorn: on paper it wasn’t very impressive, with a weak AF system and some obvious limitations imposed by Canon to create separation from […] [Read more...]

August 15, 2017 Canon EF-S 35mm f/2.8 Macro IS STM Review

Last year Canon introduced a novel concept that might have been lost on a lot of Canon shooters due to it being implemented on a lens for Canon’s mirrorless EOS M system – the EF-M 28mm f/3.5 Macro IS STM that I reviewed here. That concept was a macro lens with a built-in LED ring […] [Read more...]

July 11, 2017 Canon EF-S 35mm f/2.8 Macro IS STM Image Gallery

Canon has just released a brand new lens for it’s EF-S (APS-C crop sensor) cameras – the new Canon EF-S 35mm f/2.8 Macro IS.  This lens offers a different approach to macro than the existing EF-S 60mm f/2.8 USM lens.  It has a wider focal length, Image Stabilization, an STM focus motor, and a unique [&helli [Read more...]

February 13, 2017 Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM Review

  Before I was a professional reviewer I used to haunt a few popular photography message boards, and in many ways little has changed since becoming a reviewer. I don’t have quite as much time to spend on them, but I do like to gauge interest and feedback from real photographers both upon announcements of […] [Read more...]

January 30, 2017 Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM Image Gallery

Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM Image Gallery Opinions have wavered on this new affordable telephoto lens from Canon, but I’ve been anxious to test it for myself.  The operation of the lens is excellent, and I’m extremely impressed once again by the behavior of the Nano USM autofocus technology.  I can [Read more...]

January 23, 2017 Canon EF-M 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM Review

  New EF-M mount lenses have been fairly few and fair between, but 2016 saw two very solid lenses released: the EF-M 28mm f/3.5 Macro IS STM lens (my review here)  and this lens, the Canon EF-M 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM. The 18-150 STM is both similar and different to past EF-M zooms.  It is […] [Read more...]

January 16, 2017 Canon EOS M5 Review

Canon’s venture into mirrorless has had mixed success. The EOS M cameras have largely been critical flops despite having some unique strengths largely due to arriving with limited feature sets when compared to the competition. Canon has also really lagged in the key areas of autofocus, burst rate, and buffer size, reducing the [Read more...]

December 20, 2016 Canon EF-M 18-150mm IS STM Image Gallery

New lenses for Canon’s mirrorless system have been somewhat few and far between, but the Canon EF-M 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM that launches with the new EOS M5 camera is the second this year (first being the rather excellent little 28mm f/3.5 Macro IS lens).  This lens provides a first party “all-in-oneR [Read more...]
