Canon has introduced an accessibly priced stabilized ultra wide-angle zoom complete with a stepper motor that should appeal to stills photographers and budding movie-makers alike. Read on to see how well this new model performs.
In the first part of our comprehensive lens recommendations for the new entry-level Canon EOS Rebel T5 / 1200D, we’ve assessed a raft of primes from both the maker and third parties to see how well they perform on the camera. As well as highlighting the best performers we’ve also taken a closer look at the best on a budget.
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.
With its compact and lightweight body, the Canon EOS 100D / Rebel SL1 / Kiss X7 is the smallest DSLR in the firm’s line-up. While it adopts a similar performing sensor to the EOS 700D, the body is around 25% of the size of that model by volume and presents its own set of challenges when selecting lenses for it. In this review, we’ve taken a look at the optical quality of 130 different lenses fitted to the camera but this time we’re also making some limited recommendations about the handling and video capabilities.
