PowerShot Iâ€™m told there will be a PowerShot announcement, however nothing specific has been mentioned.
Lenses Weâ€™ve been told the 24-70 II and 35 f/1.4 II will finally be announced. The 24-70 II announcement has existed pretty much as long as this site has. I really want it announced so I can stop reading emails about it. I offer no opinion on theÃ‚ likelihoodÃ‚ of such an announcement.
The EF 200-400 f/4L IS 1.4x could also be officially announced. However, that may not happen until the new 500 & 600 start to ship.
Cameras? The only camera that is possible would be a Rebel, though Iâ€™ve received zero information one being announced in early January.
Nikon? Nikon is rumoured to be announcing the D4 & new 85 f/1.8 on Ã‚ January 6, 2012.
Will Canon let Nikon have all the thunder at CES/PMA?
The lens would be a 35mm f/1.8 with a lower build quality than an â€œLâ€ lens. However, I am unsure from the communication whether or not the lens would be an EF or EF-S mount.
CRs Take There has been a recent issue of 35 f/2 stock, however a lot of that can potentially be attributed to manufacturing challenges in Asia.
- 12mp (Larger CMOS Sensor)
- 6.5x Zoom
- f/2 The Largest Aperture
- 1080p HD Video (Upgraded Video Features)
- Optical VF Removed
- 3″ Articulating Screen (High Resolution)
- $600 USD
This will not be a mirrorless camera, but a high end fixed lens PowerShot. The departure has been hinted at previously.
CRs Take I donâ€™t doubt theyâ€™d sell a boatload of higher end, higher IQ PowerShot cameras. There are lots of people that desire a on camera solution with great IQ. The source is new, so Iâ€™d get the salt shaker out.
