by [tag]David Tong[/tag] I was fortunate to try my friend’s brand spankin’ new [tag]Canon EOS 5D Mark II[/tag] with [tag]Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM[/tag] this afternoon, so here I’m am giving you a quick insight with the camera. I have to mention right now that this is not a thorough [tag]review[/tag] (I’ll write one if I get the chance to try one for more than a day) but merely a hands-on experience and some test shots under usual indoor, low-light conditions. So don’t demand high-quality samples right now, I didn’t get the chance to capture any. All the sample images are shot in Program Mode, Evaluative metering, and Large + Normal quality.

Overview From Fuji’s website: [tag]Fuji[/tag] [tag]FinePix Z20fd[/tag] features at a glance: 10 Megapixels 2.5-inch LCD screen 3x Fujinon zoom lens Stylish ultra compact design Face Detection Technology with intelligent automatic red-eye removal Dual shutter releases: One button for still capture, one for movie record, for ease of use Intelligent Flash: i-Flash detects subtle lighting differences within a scene, and then varies the flash intensity accordingly. It also uses the high sensitivity of the FinePix Z20fd to enable the camera to use less flash, preventing that “blasted with light” effect that so many digital camera flashes leave you with Dual Shot Mode: In this mode, the FinePix Z20fd quickly shoots two images in succession — one with and one without the flash — saving both. This convenient function lets the user perform an on-the-spot picture comparison and decide whether the FinePix Z20fd produced the best shot with or without flash Special scene modes: The FinePix Z20fdhas 14 scene positions including Fireworks, Beach and Snow, offering a one-touch setting for almost any situation xD/SD/SDHC compatible slot: A single media [...]
Important: This is the original Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L USM (released 2001) and has been replaced by a Mark II version last 2007. The MKII is just a lot better than the old one especially with edge details and contrast, but take this review as a solo review of the MKI and not a comparison with the new one.

The 1mm may not sound much but on a full frame camera, wide angle differences are larger than telephoto lenses in field of view.

We reviewed the venerable flagship Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM a couple of weeks ago with favorable but slightly reserved recommendation due to price and weight factors. This week, I bring you a review[/tag] of it’s smaller and lighter cousin, the Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM. Image Courtesy of Canon Specs first… From Canon The EF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM is a lightweight, compact L Series telephoto zoom lens with Image Stabilizer. The optical Image Stabilization in the new EF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM lens provides up to an incredible four stops of shake correction-a first for Canon IS lenses. The use of fluorite UD lens elements provides excellent optical performance in terms of resolution and contrast. These features, together with its water-and dust-proof construction, provide both the performance and portability to meet user demands.
