Canon may soon announce a new, entry level DSLR, which most probably means they will announce it at CP+ (2/13-16). The DSLR that’s going to be announced is said to be positioned below the Rebel SL1/EOS 100D, and to be a brand new model. The announcement appears to be quite likely to occur for the CP+ show.
The same rumor states that there will be 2 more DSLRs that will be announced this year, one of them should be the replacement of the EOS 7D, the other, third one is not specified.
No specs nor other information for the entry level and the other DSLRs.

In all cases, prints on luster and gloss papers looked beautiful. Colors just pop off the paper, with cleaner color in saturated areas than I was able to get from the Pro-1.
If you do most of your printing on photo papers, particularly luster and gloss, and you shoot a lot of landscape/flower type photos, the Pro-100 is a clear winner.
The Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art is more than a simple refresh of the previous version of the lens. It is a completely new designed lens, with a performance that Sigma claims is on the same level as the Zeiss Otus 55mm f/1.4. A bold claim, but given Sigma’s recently released, awesome lenses, this is a claim we should take seriously.
[...] the most impressive information we gleaned? When discussing their goals of image quality and sharpness for the lens, Sigma mentioned they’re confident they’ll surpass competitive products from Canon and Nikon and are instead gunning for Zeiss’s new 55mm Otus lens. It’s a serious claim. The Zeiss 55mm f/1.4 Otus lens — with its $4000 price tag — is squarely aimed at high-end professional shooting such as fashion, advertising and editorial work.
