The latest Canon news/rumors

Canon made several headlines in the past few days - there is a Canon Rebel T4i product advisory about defective rubber grips that could cause skin allergies or irritation and another product advisory for the EXIF data of the Rebel T4i.  There could be also some issues with the EF-S 18-135 IS STM lens. This video shows the precision and quality of Canon's cameras production process:

There is a new Canon patent filed in Japan with calculations for a 600mm and 800mm f/5.6 DO lenses.

Similar to Nikon's AF-S 50mm f/1.8G lens Canon is also rumored to announce a new EF 50 f/1.8 IS lens.

There are some new rumors that the upcoming Canon mirrorless camera could have an APS-C sensor.

    For treatment of exposure to Canon rubber grips gone wild:

    IMMEDIATELY flood affected skin with water while removing and isolating all contaminated clothing. Gently wash all affected skin areas thoroughly with soap and water. If symptoms such as redness or irritation develop, IMMEDIATELY call a physician and be prepared to transport the victim to a hospital for treatment.

      Or:
      Immediately put the Canon down, go to the store, and buy Nikon. Problem solved.

        Yes… then you won’t need the rubber. The camera is the contraceptive.

          But you might get a virus when you update the firmware.
