Canon always has a big presence at TPS – this year is no different. The really big news is the freshly unveiled EOS R3. It’s been in the pipeline for some while, but we now know it is a 24-megapixel model that shoots at up to 30fps – and is aimed at pro sports and news photographers. Get to the Canon stand and be one of the first to try it out. The EOS R3 might steal the limelight, but there’s so much more. The EOS R5 is a remarkable machine with its 45 megapixels, the ability to whip through full resolution Raws at 20fps, and an in-body lens stabiliser that offers up to 8EV benefit. It has already proven itself a great performer, but if you haven’t had a chance for a close look, the Canon stand is the place to go. The EOS R lens system has also seen some new arrivals over the
past year. The RF 14-35mm f/4L IS USM brings super-wide views, while for close-up shooters, the RF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM gives a maximum magnification of 1.4x – and has a 5EV stabiliser, too.
Tamron is now moving forward quickly in the mirrorless lens market, notably with products for Sony E-mount. Recent launches include the 17-70mm f/2.8 Di III-A VC RXD, the 28-200mm f/2.8-5.6 Di RXD – the first such lens with an f/2.8 maximum aperture – and 150-500mm f/5-6.7 Di III VC VXD. Tamron’s extensive product range will be showcased at TPS, so pop along if you’re on the hunt for some decent glass.
Tamron is a major player in the independent lens market, and its range of high-quality, competitively priced products for DSLR and mirrorless cameras makes them a popular choice with enthusiasts. For DSLRs, highlights include the SP 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Di VC USD G2, bringing affordable long-lens photography within reach of many. And there’s the SP 70-200mm f/2.8 Di VC USD G2, a telezoom that competes with similar lenses from rival brands.

Appreciated and much-loved by photographers of all levels and genres, Olympus Micro Four Thirds cameras save you bulk and weight, without compromising creative potential. The 17x13mm format might be small, but exhibition-quality prints can be produced with incredible clarity, lifelike colour reproduction and minimal noise. Another upside of the format is the extra potential with long telephoto lenses. There is a 2x crop factor, so a compact 200mm focal length lens on a Micro Four
Thirds camera gives the same effect as a 400mm lens in the 35mm format. This has enormous benefits to wildlife and action photographers in particular. At TPS, Olympus will be showing off its deep-bodied OM-D E-M1X, and the OM-D E-M1 Mark III, among other models. On the lens front, a major attraction is the M.Zuiko Digital ED 150‑400mm f/4.5 TC1.25x IS PRO. This incredible telezoom has a built-in 1.25x teleconverter; when it is in play, you get a maximum 500mm focal length, equivalent to 1000mm in the 35mm format.
