EOS Bodies / Re: The New Rebel Will be Called the 760D

Why should Canon change the name?
In many magazines you can read, that the D750 is a really good cam. So if a newbe see a 750D in the internet for less than half of the price of the D750, he will maybe buy it and will never notice, that he bought the wrong cam, because a newbe doesn't really needs the features of a cam. ;D

For New York less than 2 hours left.
I think they will do something really impossible what you will not see - they will correct the compare chart of the 7DMarkII on their website, because it's still wrong.  ::)

...They’ve been told that the EOS-1D X Mark II would come first, with a potential announcement coming in very late 2014. The EOS 5D Mark III would follow afterwards….
Could you please update the text, because there is already a 5D Mark III.

Some of the specs here in the wish list for the 5D sounds like too much for the 5D, but think, it will take at least one year (2 years are more realistic) for the arrival of the new cam. Today only a few people needs 4K Video, but in two years it's like the same with Wifi today. The 6D is the lower cam, but has got Wifi, GPS and the amazing -3ev AF, which the 5DIII has not inside.

A quick recap:
Nikon - 30 million in Nov 2001, 40 million in July 2007, 50 million in Sep 2009, 60 million in Apr 2011, 70 million in May 2012, 80 million in Jun 2013

Canon - 30 million in Jan 2006, 40 million in Apr 2008, 50 million in Jan 2010, 60 million in Jan 2011, 70 million in Oct 2011, 80 million in Aug 2012, 90 million in May 2013, 100 million in Apr 2014

I was hoping Canon would take this opportunity to announce a bunch of new lenses. Doesn't look like it's happening. I am beginning to doubt 2014 is going to be the Year of the Lens for Canon...
Cool numbers, to complete the begining of canon EF, you can see this article
Production of interchangeable EF lenses for Canon EOS-series AF (autofocus) single-lens reflex cameras began in 1987 at the company's Utsunomiya Plant. Canon commemorated the production of its 10 millionth EF lens in August 1995, its 20 millionth in February 2001, its 30 millionth in January 2006...

If the audience is already waiting on the couch, there will be a need for the new 4K beamer. ;D

Lenses / Re: Canon EF 12-24 f/2.8L [CR1]

I've tested the Canon 8-15F4 and the Canon 17-40F4. At the first one I always used the long end and with the second one I used the short end most of the time.

For me it is now clear that I need an objective starting with 14mm and ends at 24mm or 28mm. Less than 14mm is cutting the edges at full frame. For more than 24mm I can use my 24-70.

So I hope a 14-24 or 12-24 will come soon to the dealers.
