Are you ready for tomorrow’s Canon EOS 5D Mark IV announcement? Stay tuned on Canon Watch for information and pre-order links.

Some new tidbits about the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV emerged. Nokishita Camera reports that the EOS 5D Mark IV will be released in Japan on September 8th. This fits with a rumor I got suggesting the EOS 5D Mark IV will start shipping in the US before September 14th.

The EF 24-105mm F4L IS II USM and EF 16-35mm F2.8L III USM lenses are scheduled to be released late October and mid October, respectively.

New bits about the upcoming Canon EOS 5D Mark IV.

I’ve been told (thanks) that the EOS 5D Mark IV will start shipping in the mid of September 2016. Launch price should be €3,799 in Europe and $3,299 in the USA. Please note that I am not 100% sure about the US price, could also be $3,499. Maybe $3,499 is more likely.

No price hint for the EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II USM and EF 16-35mm f/2.8L III USM lenses. The EF 24-105mm will most likely start to ship with the EOS 5D Mark IV (it’s a new kit option), while the EF 16-35mm may be seen a bit later, probably in October.

Next leak after the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV of yesterday. More of the gear we expect Canon to announce on August 25/26 leaked at Digicame-Info, with images and specifications of the upcoming Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II lens.

  • Weight 795g
  • Total length 118mm
  • Maximum diameter of 83.5mm
  • Filter Size 77mm

The new EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II is 11mm longer than the Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS, and it  weights 125g more. Filter size also did not change. The new Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II looks pretty much like the lens it replaces.

We expect the Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II to be announced on August 25/26 along with other gear. Here’s the list:

EOS 5D Mark IV

A list of what Canon is set to announce around August 25 leaked at Digicame-Info. The list goes beyond what we anticipated a week ago.

We have the listing of all the gear that’s soon coming from Canon: EOS 5D Mark IV kits, new EOS 7D Mark II kits, the W-E1 WiFi adapter, and new lenses:

All our previous CW5 rated rumors got confirmed. We expect the EOS 5D Mark IV and the other stuff to be announced August 25/26. Stay tuned!

What to expect to be announced by Canon before Photokina 2016 (EOS 5D Mark IV and more)

It’s not just about the EOS 5D Mark IV. We are getting closer to the most important Canon announcement of the year so I thought it would be a good idea to sum up what we can expect Canon to announce. I give different ratings. The most likely date for EOS 5D Mark IV and other announcements is August 25 or August 26.

Announcements set for the end of August:

Canon EOS 5D Mark IV (all rumors). Likely the most anticipated DSLR of the year and still no reliable specs. Will it have 24MP or 28MP? First EOS 5D Mark IV product page already showed up – [CW5]

Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS Mark II. Said to be the new kit lens for the EOS 5D Mark IV. Still no specifications. Product page showed up on the Internet – [CW5]

Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L III. This lens too will be announced soon. A product page showed up. No specs – [CW5]

Canon W-E1 WiFi adapter. This has just leaked a few days ago. Canon will enter the market with their own WiFi adapter for SD card slots – [CW5]

Announcements that are less likely:

Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM. Not sure what to think about this. There have been rumors about a replacement for the EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS but I always thought the Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS was the lens that replaced the EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS – [CW3]

A prosumer Canon EOS M body. This is becoming the white unicorn. No reliable information, just speculation and a lot of wishful thinking. Let’s give it a [CW3]

New EF-M lenses for the EOS M system. There are patents, and rumors. We also have reason to believe that Canon started to take their EOS M system seriously. There will be more EF-M lenses, I am just not sure if we will see those lenses in 2016 – [CW3]

It’s barely 3 weeks until the day we expect Canon to make their announcements. Stay tuned, we will soon know some specifications.
