[CR3] & [CR4] Explained
Currently we operate with a rating system ranging from [CR0] to [CR3]. [CR3] is something we deem as fact.
However, some folks have pointed out past [CR3]‘s that proved not to be true. The reason is because we used to go up to [CR4]. If you do a search for [CR4] things on Canon Rumors, you’ll find a few.
When I changed the rating system, I guess I never thought about the effect that ditching the [CR4] rating would bring about.
Thanks for bringing it to my attention.
Just to summarize
The new Rebel will be the product announced on the 25th of March. It should fall into our previous spec list.
Still no definitive word on a jog wheel.
Others are speculating an articulating LCD. Could you keep the screen at 3″ and make it articulating on that small body?
I’m asking around about a possible lens introduction, nothing yet.
Someone did say that perhaps Canon would launch a “Movie Lens” type of thing. It would be kitted with the new Rebel. Panasonic has done this with the GH1, so that’s probably where the idea came from. I think we’re still too early into the DSLR movie mode development for that sort of thing.
Introducing TWO new Canon Tilt-Shift Lenses?
Images from Germany:
We reported the possibility of 2 tilt-shift lenses for PMA, one of our new sources has come through if this is true.
A pair of Tilt Shift lenses?
As we reported a few days ago, there’s a chance there will be two tilt-shift lenses launched for PMA.
Apparently a German forum has picked up on that.
TS-E 17mm Ã¢â€šÂ¬2499
TS-E 24mm Ã¢â€šÂ¬2299
We’ll find out soon.
Just had another source saying there will be no 500D as originally planned at PMA. I still don’t have any [CR4] level information on this topic.
A good source says to still expect 2 lens announcements at PMA. Nothing definite on which lenses. Actual launch of new lenses could still be a few months off.
The only flash I think is realistic for PMA would be the 300 EX style flash.
People keep emailing about the Rebel, these are the specs as I know them. A couple of updates from previous posts, some of it is the same.
Proc: DIGIC IV
LCD: 3Ã¢â‚¬Â³ VGA LCD
AF: 9 Point AF
AF: Face Detection
Feature: Movie Mode w/contrast detect AF
Announcement: January 24, 2009 (?)
Possible Feature? [CR3]
I am being told you may see the jog wheel finally added to the Rebel line. $200 Canon cameras have it, why shouldn’t the Rebel?
The XSi may not be discontinued. It could stick around for 6 months or so. So yes, that would make 3 Rebel’s in the EOS lineup.
Don’t be shocked to see Canon raise lens prices come Jan/Feb 2009 to offset currency issues. There will also be normal price increases because sell through rebates end on December 31, 2008. Camera bodies should be safe, as Canon will be winding down a bunch of models outside of the 50D and 5D2.
Powershots may see a 5% increase in dealer cost.
It looks like allocations have been set for the 5D Mark II for at least a few retailers. Expect shipments to begin next week.
I’m told most mom & pop stores should get the allocation they asked for.
Price Drop Coming
Expect another price drop in the next little bit on the Rebel XS for Christmas. With the D40, A200 and K-m being priced very aggressively, the XS will have to compete.
I'm told to expect $549-$599 (It's $699 right now) Canadian for the 18-55 IS kit for Christmas.
Not exactly exciting… I know…..

If anyone has a screencap of the above cameras, I'd like to see it.
Where oh where is the 24-105? FOUND IT!
Canon UK has removed the 24-105 f/4L IS from its website.

Could be a web guy playing games, could be telling us something.
A reader pointed out it was listed under the IS section. DOH! Thanks for the keen eye.

[CR3] 24-70 f/2.8L IS is coming down the pipeline, it's also picking up steam on various forums. This could be the new 5D kit lens.
[CR4] 18-200 f/3.5-5.6 IS also appears to be a done deal.
I spoke of these 2 lenses months ago.
[CR3] There's also a very good chance of a new 400mm lens. Which one? I'm not sure yet.
The obvious candidates for replacement.
A new 100-400 or new 400 f/5.6 with added IS.
Someone else has suggested Canon could release a 400 f/4L IS. Not a DO. There could be a big market for this such lens. It would probably be a lot less money too.
[CR2] Other suggestions I've received.
EF 100 f/2.8 IS Macro
EF 17-50 f/4L IS
Both of these lenses sound feasible, just not in the near future.
Canon's lens lineup is missing a great performing ultra wide angle for full frame cameras. The 16-35 & 17-40 leave a lot to be desired at their widest focal range. Nikon's 14-24 is an amazing piece of glass, but quite useless for a lot of landscape photographers that use filters. Canon needs to release a new ultra wide that is out of this world and can be filtered. I know a couple landscape photographers that have gone from 17-40's to 24-70's just because they couldn't take the weaknesses anymore.
I know a lot of people agree with me.
The problem is the 16-35 II is relatively new, as is the 14 II. The only hope would be a replacement of the 17-40. Maybe we'll see a 2nd version in the next year or so.
