Along with the E-M5 Mark II, Olympus is also releasing an updated zoom lens for their Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras. The new lens, the M.Zuiko Digital ED 14-150mm F/4-5.6 II, has a 35mm equivalent focal range of 28-300mm and is housed within a dust and water resistant exterior.
Yesterday, Canon announced the release of two new DSLR’s: the Canon EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R. These two cameras each feature an amazing, mind-boggling 50.6 MP CMOS sensor and with that, have the distinct honor of being the highest resolution full frame cameras ever made.
Wow. Those are going to produce some seriously big files…!
Beyond the massive megapixel number, these two new cameras have a lot to like. They each feature a 61-point autofocus system, dual DIGIC 6 processors, 5fps continuous shooting (that may at first seem low, but think about the file size…), built in Wi-Fi, connection via USB 3.0, and a 3.2-inch 1.0-million-dot LCD.
By the way, the only difference between the 5DS and the 5DS R is the low pass filter. The R cancels it out, which allows for a bit of extra detail in your shots.
Canon also announced the release of an ultra-wide-angle lens compatible with full-frame digital sensor (APS-C) cameras. The Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L allows for an extremely wide angle of view, but with glass that has been optically corrected to eliminate the distortion normally seen at these low focal ranges.
