Canon has announced a handful of new products including the new EOS M100, a compact EOS M body succeeding the M10 in Canon's mirrorless lineup, a new 85mm F1.4L lens and a trio of tilt-shift macro lenses.
Canon's latest mirrorless camera features a 24.2MP APS-C CMOS sensor paired with Canon's DIGIC 7 image processor. ISO range maxes out at ISO 25600 and connectivity options include Wi-Fi, NFC and Bluetooth.
On the back is a tilting 3.0-inch 1.04m dot touchscreen LCD for selecting focus points and changing camera settings.
Tapping the touchscreen focuses using the M100's Dual Pixel CMOS AF, the same autofocus system found on Canon's latest cameras. Like other EOS M cameras, the M100 is compatible with all EF-M lenses as well as EF and EF-S lenses with the EF-EOS M Mount Adapter.
The EOS M100 is expected to arrive in October with a MSRP of $799.00.
This new image-stabilized lens is the first from Canon in a 85mm focal length prime. It doesn't replace the EF 85mm f/1.2L II in the lineup but gives photographers the option of choosing either a wide f/1.2 aperture or a slightly slightly less wide f/1.4 aperture with 4 stops of image stabilization.
Inside are 14 lens elements in 10 groups and a circular 9-blade aperture. The lens is weather- and dust-resistant and has a 77mm filter thread.
Three new tilt-shift lenses were also announced. The TS-E 50mm f/2.8L Macro, TS-E 90mm f/2.8L Macro and TS-E 135mm f/4L Macro offer additional control over perspective and depth-of-field compared to their non-tilt-shift counterparts.
All three use Canon's moulded aspherical glass and UD elements for "edge-to-edge resolution, improved image quality over previous Canon TS-E lenses and minimum distortion". The 50mm and 135mm use Canon's SubWaveLength Structure Coating (SWC), which reduces flare and ghosting, while the 50mm and 90mm both have Canon's new Air-Sphere Coating (ASC), which provides "amazingly high, anti-reflective performance, particularly when alleviating incidental light that can enter a lens."
The TS-E 50mm f/2.8L Macro, TS-E 90mm f/2.8L Macro and TS-E 135mm f/4L Macro is announced to ship in November, $2,899.00 each.
Macro Twin-Lite MT-26EX-RT Flash
Accompanying the trio of new macro tilt-shift lenses is the MT-26EX-RT, a new macro twin-lite flash with adjustable, detachable macro twin lights, intended for fine-tuning the light's direction. With both lights firing, the MT-26EX-RT has a guide number of 85.3 feet.
The MT-26EX-RT is also expected at the same time as the macro lenses, November 2017, at a retail price of $1,299.00.
