Canon EOS 80D review

 

Unbeatable autofocus puts Canon's EOS 80D at the top of its class for video.

The 80D is a proper upgrade to the 70D, and retains the Editors’ Choice. It may not look different, but there are significant improvements under the hood, namely the autofocusing, superior stills, and Full HD videos that are top-notch. The 80D is a...

Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM

 

The Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM is a sharp lens with a long zoom range and a fast USM motor that pairs well with Canon's Dual Pixel AF technology.

7.5x zoom ratio. Crisp optics. Smooth Live View focus. Optical stabilization. Power Zoom accessory available.

Shows some distortion. Dim corners at widest aperture.

Conclusions The Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM is a solid zoom lens. It delivers crisper images than the 18-55mm that ships with many entry-level Rebel cameras, and more than doubles its zoom range. Its focus motor is more powerful than the...

Canon EOS 80D with 18-55mm STM lens

 

It costs $1,200 (£1,030, AU$1,880) for the body and $1,600 (£1,380, AU$2,400) for a kit with the updated EF-S 18-135mm f3.5-5.6 USM lens that supports new the power zoom adapter.

The Canon EOS 80D is fast, and if you play with the settings can produce excellent photo and video quality.

The automatic white balance isn't very good, and it doesn't have a terribly broad set of features.

With better performance and photo quality than the 70D, the Canon EOS 80D is worth the upgrade, but it's got a lot of competition for the money.

Canon EOS 80D review:

 

Canon delivers a decent update to its popular prosumer action-capable camera, the EOS 70D . The 80D gets a new version of the company's Dual Pixel CMOS sensor with a faster on-sensor autofocus system, plus some minor additions. It has some notable...

Canon EOS 80D Review

 

The Canon EOS 80D is an enthusiast-level DSLR, and the successor to the 70D. It sports a new 24MP APS-C CMOS sensor which, like the 70D, offers Canon's Dual Pixel on-sensor phase-detection autofocus system. The 80D also gains a new 45-point hybrid AF...

Canon EOS 80D

 

Upon completing the Canon EOS 70D review, I declared that, if I had to pick a do-everything-well APS-C format camera that does not cost a fortune,the Canon EOS 70D would have been my recommendation.The Canon EOS 80D now takes this camera's place in...

I would not be completely forthright to omit a last piece of advice to those considering the addition of an 80D to their kits.While "80D" appears a fine name in print, quickly saying the name to someone who is unfamiliar with the model name will likely...

Canon EOS 80D Review

 

The Canon EOS 80D is a prosumer APS-C digital SLR camera. Successor to the three year old 70D, the EOS 80D features a 24.2 megapixel CMOS sensor, an updated Dual-Pixel CMOS AF system which now additionally offers continuous autofocus during live view...

The Canon EOS 80D builds on the big leap forward that its predecessor made principally by adding continuous autofocusing for live view stills shooting and upgrading the image sensor and focusing/metering systems. So although it looks outwardly very...

Canon 80D Review

 

Sporting a new, higher-resolution 24MP sensor, a faster processor and a beefed-up 45-point AF system, the Canon 80D builds upon foundation laid out by the 70D and its excellent Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology. The 80D performs very well on multiple...

Very good image quality; Better RAW high ISO performance than predecessor; Improved buffer depth; Very fast AF; Dual Pixel CMOS AF is excellent; f/8 AF support; 1080/60p video; Headphone jack; Very good battery life

New kit lens isn't very sharp; No 4K video; No clean HDMI out; 29:59 minute video recording limit; Phase detect AF not as sensitive in low-light as expected (Dual Pixel AF better in low-light)

2016 prosumer camera shootout: Canon EOS 80D vs. Nikon D500 vs. Sony A6300

 

If you're looking for a prosumer-level interchangeable lens camera, your shortlist should definitely consist of the Canon EOS 80D, Nikon D500, and Sony A6300. But which is our favorite? In this review, we pit these three APS-C cameras against one...

To be honest, this was a closer fight than we expected, as all three cameras have their strong suits. One thing that really stood out during our testing was just how good the autofocus systems of the various cameras performed.
