[Rumor] Is Canon’s High Resolution (46MP) DSLR Around The Corner? (and three new lenses too?)

CR has more hints that Canon will soon announce a new, high resolution DSLR. The talk is about a 46MP sensor.

I’m told that the coming big megapixel camera is a very new sensor design/overhaul. The emphasis is in the dynamic range of the sensor. Performance is said to be on the level of medium format, even better than the impressive D800.

The high res cam is said to get a new naming scheme (no 3D nor something with “D”). Canon should announce it at PhotoPlus in New York City in October.

There are also new lenses that are said to show up soon. The EF 200-400 f/4L IS 1.4x is expected to be announced by Canon at PhotoPlus. Finally, two f/4 telephoto lenses are rumored to be announced in January 2013: the EF 300 f/4L IS II and the EF 400 f/4L IS.

    I wonder who really need 46MP

  • How about spelling lens correctly?

  • I waited until the middle of Eebruary for Canon to announce the 46mp camera and after waiting since 2011 I finally gave up the ghost and reluctantly bought Nikon’s D800. It’s the best move I have ever made.I STILL have all my Canon glass and i will keep it for a further 6 months just in case Canon do what they clearly dont seem to be able to do and thats make a sensor with at least the same technology as Nikon. How long are we being told that they have this camera in the wild.Perhaps the techniician and camera got lost in the long grass.
