Eventually A Canon Announcement in November? (EOS M2 Rumor)

EOS M2 Rumor

Most recent rumours suggest that Canon won’t announce anything EOS-related during the last months of 2013, at least not for the DSLR line-up. However, something may be in preparation. The EOS M2 is rumoured as a candidate for an announcement.

CR reports that “a major retailer” is going to show off new gear, the presentation appears to be scheduled for the third week of November, and Canon seems to be involved. The suspect of the case is the successor of the Canon EOS M, for the time being usually named EOS M2.

An announcement of the EOS M2 so short before X-Mas appears not to be the best marketing strategy, unless Canon can ship from day one and starts a phenomenal marketing campaign to get ready for the X-Mas sales.

Canon Ships New EOS 5D Mark III Kit Starting November 2013

EOS 5D Mark III Kit

It was rumored, now it is official. Starting November 2013 the basic EOS 5D Mark III kit will be shipped with the EF 24-70mm f/4L IS lens and no longer with the Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM lens. There are (unconfirmed) rumors that Canon may discontinue the 24-105mm , which also gives a meaning to the recently announced Sigma 24-105mm DG OS lens. I am curious to learn if the old 5D3 kits (with the 24-105mm) will see consistent discounts.
