Update – What’s That? A “1″ Series Camera Body with no Model Marking Pointing to a Canon Event in October?
Update: thanks to Keith I was able to get the (German) text of the flyer. It says: [...] seien Sie live dabei. Erleben Sie die Highlightprodukte von Canon begleitet von einem spannenden Bühnenprogramm und Seminaren rund um das Thema Professional Imaging. Einen dieser Termine sollten Sie sich unbedingt vormerken, jeweils 13-20 Uhr. Translated it means: [...] be there with us. Experience the Canon product highlights along with exciting stage performances and seminars around the topic of Professional Imaging. You should absolutely save one of these dates, each at 13-20pm. The flyer refers to several dates. Could this just be a Canon event for pros where Canon shows all their professional stuff?
Intriguing image spotted by Northlight Images. According to NL there are ‘professional’ Canon events in Germany in October, starting on the 12th in Berlin. Why intriguing? Because it shows an “1″ series camera body without any model designation. However, checking Canon Germany’s homepage I could find only three events scheduled for October, none appears to be related to DSLRs, let alone to a camera announcement. The three events are:
- Canon InMotion2013 @ Druck+Form in Sinsheim
- Canon Business Lounge in Mülheim/Ruhr
- Fotobookfestival in Kassel
So before you (and me) are hoping to see a big announcement it is better to slow down expectations.
The Phoblographer was CineGear Expo NY and met up with Tokina, and they had a chance to try out Tokina’s three new Cinema lenses: the 11-16mm T3, 16-28mm T3, and 50-135mm T3 – all prototypes. The lenses will be available for PL mount and Canon EF mount, the 11-16mm T3 will be available also for m43 mounts. The three Cine lenses are equivalent to the Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8, Tokina 16-28mm f/2.8, and Tokina 50-135mm f/2.8; the differences are all in the ergonomics needed for a cinematographic use. Build quality appears to be very good. This is a first impression about the three lenses, The Phoblographer writes:
We spent a total of around 20 minutes with the lenses, and so far we think that many folks who spring for the purchase will be in for a treat. To date, these might be the most affordable cinema zoom lenses with a constant aperture on the market. And considering just how good Tokina’s glass is, we think that potential buyers should first be able to justify the purchase to themselves and figure out how they’re going to make money from the purchase. Otherwise, Rokinon’s cinema zooms may be more in your price range.

Canon announced a mail-in rebate program for a big bunch of their “L” lenses. The mail-in rebates (up to $300) end January, 14, 2014. Things appear a little bit confusing to me, since not all lenses seem to have the same kind of mail-in rebate (Amazon appears to differ from Adorama and B&H). After clicking the links check how much mail-in rebate you will get.
