EOS Bodies / Re: February & March are Announcement Months for Canon [CR2]
« on: November 16, 2012, 09:17:52 AM »
Looking forward to some big mature changes, stabilising the EOS-M range. big pixel and a 7D refresh. Could a EOS-M with a viewfinder and a 7D renaming scheme be one and the same thing?

EOS Bodies / Re: A Brief 2013 Canon Roadmap [CR1]

I wonder if 40M is the new 20M, basically will all bodies start to have circa 40Mpixel sensors including the APS-c rebels? 
If so should we hold out for this next generation?
(Assumptions are that more pixels cone with enhanced Dynamic range/colour depth etc.)

Lenses / Re: Two Lenses to be Announced Shortly.....

Doesn't really matter. It will be months before you ever see one. What happened to the 200-400 that was all over the place at the Olympics? Pictures of it in the wild emerged a long, long time ago and nothing to be said.
It hasn't been officially announced yet, big difference, in case that escaped you

It still doesn't matter, months pass even after they are announced.  How long ago was the 500 and 600 II's announced?  They have only recently started becoming available.  Don't hold your breath with Canon, it will drive you crazy.
With so much of the development pipeline in the public view, its getting towards the stage where almost all of the current camera's you can actually buy from Canon are obsolete before you get them.
Come on Canon - shorten the announcement to delivery window.

Canon General / Re: Canon's MAP Pricing Goes Into Full Effect Today
« on: November 01, 2012, 08:11:23 AM »
Does MAP ensure that supplier margins are preserved, and so competent suppliers can now offer a better service and real photography advice rather than continually being under cut by the box shifting chains?

No one likes high prices, or unnecessary fat in the supply chain but we do like support and advice we can trust.

Lenses / Re: Canon EF 24-70 f/4L IS Coming [CR3]
« on: October 30, 2012, 05:26:31 PM »
The current MK2 24-70 is said to have amazing IQ, if this f4 version is sharp and great using the same design too then it leaves the 24-105mm as a less sharp kit lens. so yes for a decent price this would be good - but still not a f2.8 :-( 
Also we need to ask how this fits into movie cam use?

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS 3D at 46.1mp Next Month? [CR1]

So Canon and Nikon are developing almost the same products together.

EOS Bodies / Re: 46.1mp Canon DSLR Previewed at PhotoPlus 2012? [CR1]

16 Bit and 46MP :-)

Re the update, shame there is no flip out flash :-(

EOS Bodies / Re: Another Spec List for the Entry Level Full Frame EOS
« on: July 25, 2012, 09:30:59 AM »
If its announced in PhotoKina then i hope stock is ready for just after Christmas.
News on Dynamic range seems light though - and canon does not seem to do so well there.

EOS Bodies / Re: first pic of canon mirrorless?
« on: July 20, 2012, 06:50:51 AM »

Why would canon reuse an old part number?

Lenses / Re: New Canon 50mm Coming? [CR1]
« on: July 17, 2012, 09:33:34 AM »
Maybe there is a big mega pixel camera coming out and it needs a super resolving lens to make it worthwhile.

Ouch $849.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon's Next Full Frame Camera [CR2]
« on: July 16, 2012, 10:56:28 AM »
With that extra ISO and the pop up flash, this could be my one camera does all upgrade from the 60D.
As long as its got good results up to 3200.
Is this my new hobbyist studio/events body. If so i'll take a 17-40mm lens too please.

With most of the recent lenses having a video angle - is this one just for SLR use? or is Apodization needed for a video related performance issue?

EOS Bodies / Re: New Product Announcement Invites for July 23, 2012
« on: July 10, 2012, 09:32:35 AM »
Good - lets get another one out the way so that the Low cost FF rumours can start again.
The 650D looks to rock and is pushing the 60D and the 7D out to pasture - there are lots of great new SLR's to come.

Lenses / Re: A New EF 50 f/1.8 IS? [CR1]
« on: July 09, 2012, 04:09:23 AM »
Remember the vast majority of cameras Canon now sells are APS-C, so 50mm is the new 80mm and IS is definitely helpful under some situations at that focal length.

And if a smaller sensor is in a future mirrorless camera then that 80mm could be 105mm??
Canon have only recently been building lenses for video and mirrorless that also fit on EF mounts.
