Canon Abandoning EF Mount and Lenses in 2019?!

Coming into 2019, one of the biggest topics is Canon being fully dedicated to their mirrorless RF line for 2019. One of their European tech specialist mentioned in an interview that Canon is fully tackling the RF lens lineup and putting a brief hold on the EF mount. Is this a smart idea? Should Canon only concentrate on the RF line in 2019? Let me know in the comments below. Should Nikon do the same? Easy answer....Yes!

Canon 16-35mm f/2.8L III First Impressions & Unboxing: Why over the F4?

I give a hands on unboxing and first impressions of the Canon 16-35mm f/2.8L III. I "upgraded" from the f4 version for just a few small reasons. But despite the price tag being almost $1,000 more over the f4 you get a lens that feels professional and durable. Also, this lens have an 82mm filter mount allows me to use my current filters that I've used on my Canon 24-70 2.8 II lens. I will have a full review on this lens soon, so stay tuned! What would you like to see in the review? Let me know in the comments below.

Canon 11-24mm f/4L Review Hands On: Canon 16-35 f/4 vs Buying This $3,000 Lens

I give my hands on review of the Canon 11-24mm f/4L USM ultra wide lens. This lens runs around $3,000 USD and is a highly popular specialty lens that is great for real estate, street photography and some architecture. Is this 11-24mm worth getting or the Canon 16-35 f/4 worth it more? I discuss this in the video above, price aside. The most important thing to understand about ultra wide angle lenses, like this 11-24 f4, is how it distorts and what that produces. If you can work it to your flavor, you are good to go.

Canon Rebel SL2/200D Review: Dual Pixel AF & A Vloggers Dream

I give a full hands on review of the Canon Rebel SL2 or 200D. I also vlog for a bit and show how the dual pixel autofocus works in this $550 USD camera. Be it a smaller price tag and body build, is it an actual good camera? Yes, oh yes it is. Now the Canon SL2 is targeted at beginners no doubt; body layout, 5 fps, single SD card slot and 9 af points. There are a few design flaws as well as shown in the video involving the screen and where the mic connects. But I would highly recommend this camera to anyone starting out or wants a reliable camera to vlog with.

Canon 100mm f/2.8 L Macro IS USM Lens Review: The Number One Macro Photography Lens

I give my hands on review of the Canon 100mm f/2.8 L Macro IS USM Lens. This lens is the number one macro photography lens on the market and it has been for years. This of course is my opinion but I've used a lot, this is great. It's light weight, doesnt cost a lot and is super sharp stopped down to wide open. The Canon 100mm runs about $799 USD and is worth every penny.

Canon 6D Mark II Review: Hands-On Honest Review The Pros and Cons

I give my hands on honest thoughts of the Canon 6D Mark II. There are many pros and cons to this "controversial" camera of 2017 but the cons and complaining are coming from reviewers who never used the camera for the most part. Canon did leave out some features in this, very questionable feature and I'm not talking 4K video here. That is an entirely other discussion. But the Canon 6D Mark 2 wouldn't be selling very well if it was a great stills camera and good for video. Which both are true. The 6D II does come in at $2,000 USD, a bit high but average right at the same point the original 6D came in at. It's a lot of money sure, but its a high quality camera despite Canon's questionable choices.

Tamron 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 Di II VC HLD Full Hands-On Review: Best Wide Angle/Vlogging Lens Of 2017

I give a full hands on review of the Tamron 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 Di II VC HLD. I review this on the Canon 80D, but this is also available for Nikon. This is a $500 lens, the newest of 2017 and should be your next crop sensor wide angle or vlogging lens. The VC, vibration control, works very well on this and is super fast to track focus.

Canon EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM Hands On Review-The Must Buy Pancake Prime Lens

Here is a hands on review of the Canon EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM pancake lens. This is the must buy beginner canon lens! For $150 bucks, this lens handles pretty much everything. While it's a bit too tight for vlogging, I feel as being a first lens, it's the perfect balance of being wide enough to learn on before getting the Canon 50mm f/1.8. The only issue I encountered was slight vignetting wide open at f/2.8. Which is pretty common for cheaper lenses. But once I stopped down to f/4 and f/8, that issue was gone!
