The Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM is an EF mount L-Series zoom lens that provides a fast aperture of f/2.8 which does not get smaller when the lens is zoomed (a phenomena that occurs with most zoom lenses). It features highly effective image stabilization, as denoted by the IS designation, and covers what is arguably the most important focal length range for many professional photographers, zooming from perfect portrait to moderate telephoto.

The Canon EOS 80D is the latest iteration of Canon’s APS-C-chipped DSLRs that began with the introduction of the (no kidding) three-megapixel Canon EOS D30 in 2000. I’ve owned and shot with every camera in this series through the Canon EOS 60D. I so dearly loved my Canon EOS 50D, now converted to infrared-only operation, that I couldn’t imagine anything better, at least until I got the Canon EOS 60D. What happened to the Canon EOS 70D? I guess I must have missed that one. No matter, I was eager to put the Canon EOS 80D to work because of the specs and features it offered.

When I checked Canon’s website to verify the specs on the Canon EOS 6D Mark II ($1,899, body only; $3,099, for the test camera supplied with the Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM “kit” lens) I was a bit surprised to see it termed a “gateway” for enthusiasts to step up to a full-frame DSLR. That’s a new one to me, but that indeed is what this camera is. Packed with pro and enthusiast features alike, the Canon EOS 6D Mark II is a thoroughly modern DSLR that incorporates the latest technology and a navigational setup that makes moving through and selecting from its many options a breeze.

Canon’s workhorse, full-frame DSLR, the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV, offers a 30.4MP sensor system, while its forerunner used a 22.3MP sensor. The 30.4MP sensor in the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV offers Dual Pixel Raw images and updated Raw converter software, Digital Photo Professional 4. In addition, the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV’s sensor offers Dual Pixel CMOS AF, which first appeared in the Canon EOS 70D and is helpful when shooting in live view mode or when recording videos.

The Canon EF100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM is an EF mount L-Series Macro lens that provides life-size (1:1) reproduction ratio (macro magnification) and fast, quiet autofocus on Canon full-frame and APS-C (cropped-frame) DSLR cameras.

Ultra-wide zoom lenses don’t always get the attention they deserve, as compared to their sexier long-telephoto cousins. But when it comes to versatility under a wide range of shooting conditions, lenses in this category can’t be beat.

Don’t be fooled by the small size of Canon’s new PowerShot G1 X Mark III camera. This little powerhouse not only looks like a miniature DSLR, it offers many of the sophisticated features found in much larger, mid-level DSLRs. And while Canon calls the new G1 X Mark III a “point-and-shoot” camera, it delivers far more than you’d expect from this nomenclature.
