Canon EF-M 11-22mm IS STM Image Leaked, Announcement Soon (next EOS M coming?)

Canon EF-M 11-22mm

Digicame-info (translated) posted a leaked image of the EF-M 11-22mm IS STM lens for the EOS M system. The image comes from a trusted source.

The lens is very compact. For the time being it is not clear if the lens will extend or not. Word is about a “lens storage mechanism”. The lens could be announced very soon.

As far as I know the announcement of the next EOS M system shouldn’t be that far away.

Rumor: EF-M 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM Lens For Canon EOS M May Be Around The Corner!

EF-M 11-22mm 

Digicame-info (translated) broke the news just a few minutes ago: It appears that a new lens for the Canon EOS M system is around the corner. It should be an image stabilized 11-22mm f/4-5.6 lens, the EF 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM. Unfortunately there are no more specs leaked for this lens, just that the filter diameter will be 55mm. I guess the lens will be very compact.

Such a wide-angle zoom was murmured in the past, so I think the rumor is quite plausible. Moreover, Canon’s Masaya Maeda clearly stated that Canon is working on more lenses for the EOS M system.

If you live in Germany, top rated eBay seller medialand4you (99.5% positive ratings) has a hot deal: Canon EOS M with EF-M 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens for ridicolous .

Could The New EOS-1D C Firmware Turn an EOS-1D X In An EOS-1D C?

EOS-1D C Firmware EOS-1D C Firmware

A few days ago Canon announced a firmware update for the Canon EOS-1D C, which, among other fixes, brings 25fps at 4k. The firmware is not available by download, instead you have to take your EOS-1D C to an authorized Canon service center in order to get it on your camera. This is unusual.

The Phoblographer reports about users that are suggesting Canon doesn’t want the firmware to get in the hands of EOS-1D X owners. Why? Because the hardware of both cams is nearly (if not totally) the same and the EOS-1D C firmware could turn an EOS-1D X in an EOS-1D C, a higher end gear with a much heftier price tag ($11,999 vs the $6700 of the EOS-1D X). Btw, the EOS-1D X also got a firmware update in the last days.

The Phoblographer is currently investigating the issue with Canon.

The EOS-1D C is sold for $11,999 at the following shops: B&H and Adorama, and you can rent it here.

Slight correction of the latest Canon EOS 70D rumor. It appears that the July announcement regards a brand new AF technology that Canon has developed. The new AF tech will first be featured on the Canon EOS 70D which is said to be announced immediately after the announcement of the AF technology.

Very interesting news, though there are no more tidbits about what makes up the new AF technology.

For the time being we are stuck with the EOS 70D spec list we posted back in April:

  • 18mp Sensor (Same as SL1)
  • DIGIC V
  • 6.5fps
  • SD Card
  • Wifi
  • GPS
  • 3.2″ Touchscreen LCD (No mention of swivel)
  • Magnesium Alloy Construction
  • Weather-sealed
  • Slightly larger than the EOS 60D
  • $1199 USD Body Only

It appears that we are definitely close to the announcement of the EOS 70D. Excited?

That’s what the latest Canon EOS 70D rumor suggests. The successor of the Canon EOS 60D (price & specs) could be announced in July 2013. For the time being the EOS 70D is undergoing final tests by some selected Canon Explorers of Light. Commercials are also said to be produced in different spots on this planet of ours.

Canon Rumor: A New EOS M Camera This Summer?

 

Latest Canon EOS M rumor. It could happen that Canon announces a new EOS M system camera during summer 2013, along with some new EF-M lenses. One of the lenses should be an 18-135mm zoom lens with compact size, the other a telephoto zoom lens (but no specs here).

The bad news: the rumor suggests that Canon considers the EOS M part of an entry level segment, hence there will be no new primes for the system.

Actually there is a very good EOS M deal going on on eBay. eBay seller bigvalueinc (>57000 ratings, 98.2% positive) has the Canon EOS M with the EF-M 22mm f/2 STM pancake lens on sale for . Free shipping. All four color option are available.
