Latest rumors suggest that Canon will announce new lenses next week. CR reports that
There is some talk about lens announcements taking place early next week. Although no one is committing to which lenses will get announced. The usual suspects are an EF 35 f/1.4L II and the EF 200-400 f/4L IS 1.4x. The latter is the most likely, with the other less of a possibility.
What about camera announcements? No news about Canon's high resolution DSLR or a more pro-oriented mirrorless camera. However, the EOS-1D C will most probably become official before the end lf 2012.
Canon EOS 60D Listed As Discontinued? Thanks to our reader Chris who emailed this. Not sure what is going on here. Amazon Germany lists both the EOS 60D body only and the kit with the EF-S 18-135mm IS lens as discontinued. The last line in the picture above says that the item has been discontinued by the manufacturer [Auslaufartikel (Produktion durch Hersteller eingestellt): Ja]. Click on the links above and scroll down to the paragraph titled Produktinformation.
Typo or an embarrassing error that may suggest an upcoming EOS 70D? The latest rumor we heard about the Canon EOS 70D was saying that there will not be any announcement soon. What do you think?
Not only camera specs and images are leaking now and then, but eventually also the mighty DXOMarks are handled as genuine rumors. And here they are: Canon EOS-1D X DXOMark leaked. For what ever this score is worth in real life, here are the (supposedly) leaked scores for the Canon EOS-1D X, yet not published on dxomark.com:
DxO score: 90
Color depth: 24.9 bits
Let’s make it short: below the Nikon D600 and D800.
Rumors about the Canon EOS-1S high megapixel DSLR are getting stronger. More information is leaking and confirms the previous tidbits. We can be confident that something regarding a high megapixel DSLR (46MP are rumored) will actually happen. However, the new information are stating that if Canon announces the high megapixel DSLR (supposedly named EOS-1S) in 2012 it will be just a development announcement, and not an announcement of imminent release. Other Canon gear has been announced years before being released. The good news: It should be rather sure that Canon is testing prototypes.
The Canon EOS-1S high megapixel DSLR is said to have the same housing of the EOS-1D X, 10fps and 46 MP. It is also said that the EOS-1S will employ a new sensor technology that delivers unseen low ISO performance. And a seldom seen price tag too: it’s said to get over the counter for $9000. That’s all we know so far. I wouldn’t bet on the name, it is not the first to be suggested (3D and 4D and 1D-S were rumored). However, suggestions that it will be a “D”-less name are getting louder. So let’s call it EOS-1S for the time being. A last word about the new sensor technology: It has been suggested that Canon could introduce a new DSLR category with the Canon EOS-1S high megapixel DSLR.
It’s time that Canon comes back with some exciting technological break-through. A 46MP monster by Canon has to be a killer DSLR. We will see…
The latest Canon EOS 7D Mark II rumor says Canon will announce the camera in January 2013 (before CP+, possibly during PMA). The Canon EOS 7D Mark II might be announced along with the EOS 700D, and there should not be an EOS 70D for some time. Instead of the EOS 70D, the EOS 7D with a reduced price tag will target the market share of the EOS 60D.
Regarding the (rumored) specs of the Canon EOS 7D Mark II: 10fps and a sensor with no more than 25MP.
It's also said that Canon is leaking false rumors to track leaks. :-)
More news about Canon’s rumored high megapixel DSLR. Most of us are quite confident that Canon will announce a high resolution DSLR by the end of October. While the few rumored specs didn’t change so far, there a new tidbits about naming and price. EOS 3D has been around for a while, now there are rumors that suggests an abandon of the “D” in the naming scheme. A new rumor suggests EOS-1S is the name of Canon’s big megapixel DSLR. The other news concerns the price, which is said to be around $9000. Looks more like a new category of DSLR than a competitor to other DSLRs.
Moreover, it’s speculated that new technology will employed for the first time in the EOS-1S. This new tech should give a superior low ISO performance of the sensor. It is still said that the new big megapixel (46 are rumored) will have the same housing as the EOS-1D X, although this will hardly be a firmware-hattrick as with the EOS-1D C.
After EOS 3D and 4D, EOS 1D-S, now I am very curios to know if EOS-1S is the name of Canon’s big megapixel DSLR. At least it sounds credible.
