Further readings for the Canon EF 24mm f/2.8 IS USM
To provide photographers with a broader perspective about mobiles, lenses and cameras, here are links to articles, reviews, and analyses of photographic equipment produced by DxOMark, renown websites, magazines or blogs.
After releasing high-speed 35mm and 24mm primes, Sigma has turned its attention to more moderate f/2-speed models. But rather than competing head-on with fixed focal length models, the company has introduced a high-grade f/2 zoom instead. Read on to find out how well this intriguing model performs.
Designed specifically for use on smaller APS-C sensor DSLRs, the new EF-S 24mm is a wide-angle pancake prime featuring Canon’s STM step autofocus motor for smooth video capture. At just $149, it looks like a “no-brainer” for Canon APS-C video shooters, but how does it compare optically against a vast range of other options available? We dissect the DxOMark Lens Metric Scores to find out.
With a full-frame 18-Mpix CMOS sensor and twin Digic 5+ processers that’s capable of continuous bursts of up 12 fps – the fastest of any professional DSLR currently - the Canon EOS-1 Dx is the firm’s flagship press camera. We’ve assessed it with over 100 EF mount lenses, to see how well they perform. Read on to find out which models are the best optically and which, if any, you should avoid.
We’ve had the opportunity to test the new ultra-high speed Samyang 24mm F1.4 prime, and thought we would alter our usual review format to take a look at the best lenses for Canon full-frame users. Read on to find out how well the Samyang performs in our tests and if that or a rival model is the best choice.
Introduced in July this year, the EOS 70D at first sight seems like a regular update to the maker’s mid-range EOS 60D model. It shares a number of features with the firm’s existing SLR range including a 19-point cross-type phase detection AF system, a 3-inch (1.040M dot) articulated touchscreen and built-in WiFi connectivity with remote viewing and image transfer. The camera can also shoot at up to 7fps and has 1080/30p video recording with stereo sound using an optional external microphone.
After almost 25 years, Canon has updated one of its oldest prime lenses with the new Canon EF 24mm f/2.8 IS USM. Adding optical image stabilization and a ring-type ultrasonic autofocus motor, the new fixed, wide-angle lens is an update to the Canon 24mm f/2.8 wide-angle prime originally released in November of 1988.
Adding to its range of image stabilised lenses Canon has brought out this new EF 28mm f2.8. 28mm is a useful focal length and while f2.8 is not very wide, the IS makes this an attractive proposition. Taking into account that this is optically pretty good too and the result is quite promising. Photographers looking for a good all round wide angle for their kit bag could do much worse.
