Image quality results from the Canon EOS 5Ds R have been added to the Canon EF 135mm f/2L USM Lens Review.
 
The 135mm f/2 lens is notably absent from the third party lens lineup, leaving the Nikon 135 f/2 as the only directly comparable lens. Zeiss has an amazing MF-only alternative – here is that comparison (1Ds III tests).
 
If 100mm f/2 can get the job done for you, the Canon EF 100mm f/2 USM Lens could be considered a close-comparable with a more-affordable price. If shooting at f/2, the 135L will make you happier.
 
B&H has the Canon EF 135mm f/2L USM Lens in stock.

From the ExpoImaging YouTube Channel:
 
Erik Valind demonstrates how to fill in shadows with ambient light using the Rogue Super Soft Silver/Natural White reflector and shows the difference between standard silver reflectors and the new Rogue Super Soft Silver Reflector.
 
Note from Sean: A reflector is an inexpensive, simple piece of gear that every portrait photographer should have at his/her disposal. If you are new to photography and want to explore portrait lighting, investing in a reflector is a good place to start. And if you do not have an assistant to help you hold/position the reflector, consider picking up a light stand and reflector holder as well.

Canon has temporarily extended its DSLR rebates with a few minor [confusing] modifications. As usual, the rebate amounts depend on bundled lenses and accessories. However, many of Canon's consumer-grade DSLRs currently qualify for two separate on-going rebate programs through June 18. After that point, the second rebate program continues through July 2nd.
 
Because of the complexity of the programs, we'd rather you get the information straight from the sournce rather than try to summarize the programs here.
 
Canon's Current DLSR Instant Rebates
 
A few items to note:
 
  1. The 5D-series and 6D instant rebates are scheduled to expire June 18; the 1D-X/1D-X II rebates run through July 2.
  2. The 1D X Mark II Premium Kit will continue qualifying for a $300.00 rebate (free Cfast card and reader) through July 2.
  3. The 7D II and 70D instant rebates are scheduled to expire June 18; the 80D rebates run through July 2.
  4. The Rebel T6i instant rebates are scheduled to expire June 18; the remaining Rebel-series cameras feature rebates going through July 2, but exactly which kits qualify for rebates depends on the date range of purchase (June 12 - June 18 or June 18 - July 2).
  5. The EOS M3 instant rebates are scheduled to expire June 18; the EOS M10 rebates run through July 2.
Unfortunately, Canon decided to dramatically scale back the number of lenses and flashes which qualify for instant rebates in the now-current program. By my count, Canon removed 34 items (30 lenses + 4 flashes) and added only 1 (the Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM).
 
However, there is a silver lining. Some of the more popular L-series zooms are still on the list and several of those rebates actually increased $50.00 compared to the last rebate program.

MELVILLE, N.Y., JUNE 1, 2016 – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, announced today its partnership with Emmy Award nominee Candace Cameron Bure, host of TV’s The View and star of the hit Netflix series Fuller House, in support of the Canon Little League Photo Contest powered by PIXMA Printers. As part of the "Picture Perfect Season” initiative that kicked off last month, Bure will be on hand at the Little League Baseball World Series in South Williamsport, PA, on August 21 to meet the winners and unveil the winning photos.
 
“As a mom and sports enthusiast, I’m a huge fan of activities that bring families together to create special memories,” said Bure. “I’m excited to join Canon and Little League in this celebration of family photos, and showcase the love of the game.”
 
Fans are encouraged to make the season last a lifetime by submitting some of their favorite photo moments to the Canon Little League Photo Contest. By submitting photos through June 30, fans will have the chance to win one of three trips to join Candace in South Williamsport, PA, and see their photos on display in the World of Little League Museum in the Richard “Hank” Bauer, Jr. Little League Photography Exhibit in the World Series Gallery presented by Easton Foundations.
 
“Canon is delighted to welcome Candace to this year’s Little League World Series, to join us as we encourage fans everywhere to capture and share quality memories of this exciting sporting event,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, president and COO, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “She is a great supporter who understands the power of the printed image and the importance of sharing those images with fans worldwide.”
 
The Canon Little League Photo Contest powered by PIXMA Printers focuses on three themes:
 
  • Stepping Up To The Plate—an in-action game shot
  • Fandemonium—a photo that showcases fandom
  • Team Spirit—a photo that showcases team spirit
So whether it’s a whole crowd cheering in the stands or a victorious Little League team on the field, all images should capture the spirit of what it means to be a fan. Entries will be judged on the use of the theme and on the quality of the image and overall impression.
 
For tips and tricks on capturing the winning shot, fans are encouraged to print PIXMA’s “Picture Perfect Season Toolkit”.
 
Canon Little League Photo Contest: NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. Open only to legal residents of the 50 United States and the District of Columbia who are age 18 and older and a legal adult at the time of entry. The photo contest started at 9:00 a.m. ET on May 2, 2016 and ends at 9:00 p.m. ET on June 30, 2016. See OfficialRules for complete entry details and restrictions, photo guidelines and prize descriptions. Void where prohibited. Sponsored by Canon U.S.A., Inc.
