It’s EISA awards time, and this year Canon’s latest cameras and lenses have picked up three EISA awards. The amazing 50MP EOS 5DS / EOS 5DS R twins were awarded the title of European Professional DSLR Camera 2015-2016. The EOS 7D Mark II was awarded the title European Prosumer DSLR Camera 2015-2016 and the EF 11-24mm f/4L USM received the European Professional DSLR Lens 2015-2016 award.
EISA is an association of nearly 50 special interest magazines drawn from 22 European countries. EISA was started in 1982 when the editors in chief from five European photo magazines came together to select the camera of the year for the first time. The European Imaging and Sound Association emerged in 1989 after a further 10 titles joined the group.
And so to the awards for 2015-2016…
About the Canon EOS 5DS/5DS R, EISA says…
The Canon EOS 5DS and 5DS R are the highest resolution full frame DSLRs on the market. The two models give photographers a choice: the EOS 5DS includes an optical low-pass filter to suppress digital imaging artefacts, while the EOS 5DS R cancels its effect for the sharpest possible images. The 50.6-million-pixel sensor, dual DIGIC 6 processors, reduced mirror vibration and reliable metering deliver superb image quality, while the 61-point AF with 41 cross-type points ensures reliable and fast AF performance. These two cameras are the perfect choice for professional photographers for whom ultimate image quality really matters.
About the Canon EOS 7D Mark II, EISA says…
The Canon EOS 7D Mark II is one of the best APS-C DSLRs ever made, offering features normally only available in professional full frame models. The 65-point AF system gives fast and responsive focusing in a wide range of conditions, even when tracking fast moving subjects. It can shoot at 10 frames per second, with a huge buffer even when shooting in Raw. The build quality is superb, with full weatherproofing that can cope with almost any conditions. Overall the 7D Mark II is perfect for sports, action and wildlife photographers who like to capture the most fleeting moments.
About the Canon EF 11-24mm F/4L USM, EISA says…
With the 11-24mm F/4L USM Canon’s engineers have constructed one of the best wideangle zooms ever made. The world’s widest rectilinear zoom provides class-leading image quality, with exceptional sharpness at all settings even on high resolution sensors. Distortion, chromatic aberration and vignetting are all kept reasonably low. Construction is superb, with weather sealing for outdoor use, and the autofocus is fast and silent. Full-frame users specialising in landscape, architectural or interior photography who demand exceptional optical performance need look no further. It’s bulky and expensive, but for those who can afford it, it’s an absolutely outstanding piece of glass.
