Canon EOS 80D, PowerShot G7 X II, SX720 HS & EF-S 18-135 f/3.5-5.6 IS USM Coming Shortly

In preparation for CP+ in Japan this month, Canon is set to announce new consumer products. We reported that the EOS 80D was coming in February, and along with it will come what may be a new kit lens, an EF-S 18-135 f/3.5-5.6 IS USM (the recent patent may have been for this lens) along with two new PowerShot cameras, the G7 X II and SX720 HS.

There will also be something called a Power Zoom Adaptor being announced, but there is no information on this.

Canon EOS 80D Specifications

  • More AF Points
  • Upgraded AF system

This is all we’ve been told about the upcoming DSLR.

A Canon Rumors forum contributor thetechhimself noted that Canon themselves updated their knowledge center around the time of the EOS-1D X Mark II announcement and listed the EOS 80D, which likely means an announcement is imminent. You can view it at Canon USA here.
