Canon: EOS 7D II, Powershot G7 X, N2, SX60HS e obiettivi

7d21Canon ha presentato in apertura della Photokina molte interessanti novità.

La prima è la molto attesa EOS 7D II, evoluzione della precedente che data 2009. Ha un sensore, sempre APS, da 20 Mpx Dual Pixel CMOS che consente l’autofocus ibrido, doppio processore Digic 6, corpo in magnesio, 65 punti AF, raffica fino a 10 fg/s e GPS integrato.
La G7 X è una mcompatta con sensore da 1″ e 20 Mpx, uno zoom 4,2x 24-100 mm equivalente f/1,8-2,8, senza mirino, ma con schermo ribaltabile di 180° per selfie, Wi-Fi e NFC, corpo molto piccolo e leggero.
La SX60HS è una bridge con zoom 65x 21-1365 mm equivalente, sensore da 16 Mpx e Wi-Fi integrato.
La N2 è un’evoluzione della precedente N.
Gli obiettivi sono un “pancake” EF-S (solo per APS) 24 mm f/2,8 STM, uno zoom EF 24-105 mm f/3,5-5,6 IS STM e un tele EF 400 mm f/4,0 DO IS II.
La EOS 7D Mk II era attesa da lungo tempo e si pone come la migliore soluzione per la foto sportiva se non si vuole investire una quantità spropositata di euri per la EOS 1Dx. Costerà infatti in USA 1.799 $ solo corpo o 2.149 $ con il 18-135 STM.
La Powershot G/ X è una sorpresa, con il suo sensore da 1″, l’obiettivo di ottime caratteristiche e le dimensioni ridotte si pone in diretta concorrenza con la Sony RX100 III. Rispetto a questa le manca però il mirino. Costerà 699 $.
La SX60HS è l’èevoluzione della precedente SX50HS con uno zoom ancora più esteso (record per la categoria insieme a Nikon!), per fortuna però anche dal lato grandangolo e l’irrinunciabile connessione Wi-Fi. Costerà 549 $.
Il 24/2,8 costerà 149 $, il 24-105 599 $ e il 400/4,0 6.899 $

In assenza dei comunicati stampa di Canon Italia riporto le principali caratteristiche in inglese.
