Canon EOS 6D Mark II to be announced April 21? [CW2]

 

Canon EOS 6D Mark IIEos 6d mark ii

The Canon EOS 6D Mark II is becoming somewhat of a mystery, with no reliable rumors about specifications so far.

Latest rumor have it Canon may announce the EOS 6D Mark II on April 21, just before NAB 2017. This date was murmured at The Photography Show 2017 in UK. Last rumors also pointed to an announcement around NAB 2017. However, things are a bit weird

First and foremost, if Canon is set to announce the EOS 6D Mark II in April, by the time there should have been some serious leaks. But there were not. All EOS 6D Mark II specification doing the rounds on the Internet leaked here at Canon Watch, and never made it beyond a CW3 rating. We still do not have the intel we usually have less than a month before an announcement. We even are not 100% sure that the EOS 6D Mark II is among the Canon gear that recently was registered at a certification authority. Moreover, the EOS 6D Mark II is pretty late on schedule.

And what about the voices saying there will be no EOS 6D Mark II but a full-frame mirrorless camera instead? This scenario is less implausible than some little informed people wants you to believe. On the other hand, the Canon EOS 6D has been such a huge market success for Canon that it’s hard to immagine they will not go further on that path.

Below you can see what we have told the EOS 6D Mark II might feature:

  • 28MP sensor
  • 45 AF points (all cross-type)
  • Dual Pixel AF
  • DIGIC 7
  • Wi-Fi and NFC
  • GPS
  • Articulated touchscreen
  • 6 fps
  • HDR Movie & Time Lapse Movie
  • Electronic IBIS
  • 100% coverage optical viewfinder with some new features

If Canon is really set to announce the EOS 6D Mark II on April 21, then there will soon be more leaks. Stay tuned, we keep you posted.

Upcoming Canon EF-S 35mm F/2.8 M IS STM Is A Macro Lens With Built-in LEDs [CW4]

Most of us were suggesting it, now we have been told it’s true (thanks). The upcoming Canon EF-S 35mm f/2.8 M IS STM is indeed a macro lens, and it has built-in LED lights for macro illumination, just as the EF-M 28mm f/3.5 Macro IS STM has.

We expect Canon to announce the EF-S 35mm f/2.8 M IS STM at the beginning of April 2017.

Stay tuned…

Canon EF-S 35mm f/2.8 M IS STM to be announced in April

canon rumors

New tidbits about the prime lens for APS-C DSLRs Canon is rumored to announce on April 5. It may be the Canon EF-S 35mm f/2.8 M IS STM.

As you can see it’s not the wide angle lens that was suggested until a few days ago. And there is this “M” in the moniker. Most likely the M stays for macro but we do not know for sure so far.

It’s a pity it’s not a wide angle lens. Hopefully it’s really a macro, possibly with built-in LED lights like on the EF-M 28mm f/3.5 Macro IS STM.

New Canon EF-S prime lens coming in April 2017?

canon rumorsEos 6d mark ii

It’s since a while that rumour are suggesting Canon will release a prime lens for EF-S mount (APS-C).

Well, the waiting may be over soon. Unconfirmed sources suggest Canon may announce this EF-S prime lens on April 5th. And they say it will be a wide angle prime lens.

Sounds good. Unfortunately the sources couldn’t disclose the final length of the upcoming lens. Someone hopes for an ultra wide angle prime lens.

Stay tuned…
