DSLR & Lens Coming on January 15, 2013? [CR1]
« on: January 12, 2013, 04:48:11 PM »

More announcements next week?

Beyond the announcement of the “Canon Experience Stores“, I am being told a DSLR and lens is coming next week as well.  It’s “probably” going to be the EOS 70D and not the EOS 7D Mark II, it wasn’t mentioned which lens was coming.


I think the 70D is going to be an incremental update to the 60D when it is announced. Whereas the 7D Mark II will likely see more of an upgrade in feature set.


No confirmation from known sources on these announcements, beyond the Canon Store being unveiled.

Could it be another STM lens? If the 70d was to include the video focusing 'capabilities' of the 650d then that might be a possibility.

Slow week at CR?  Yet another CR1's to pass the time?  ;)
What happened to the Jan 8th 35L II and 14-24L UWA from last week?  :P

That's a bit of a relief actually - 70D now is much more likely to use the same sensor as the 650D, which paves the way for a upgraded higher mpx count on the 7DII at say 22-24mpx and top flight AF, leaving room for the 700D, 750D & 80D to catch up until a 7DIII ;-)

So if it's not the 70D or 7D MkII, what on Earth will it be? Is it really "Rebel" time again, or perhaps it's this rumoured smaller DSLR that Canon kept on claiming was possible before they launched EOS-M (anyone remember the recent viewfinder patent)?

7D II would be a significant deal for Canon...they won't just drop such a SLR body cold via a CR1 rumor here.

We would have heard a lot more through different well-orchestrated PR channels to maximize expectations and hype...Canon would make a big song and dance about it and promote it with teasers etc....

If we are lucky we may get some mangy second rate product... but given the CR1 rumor track record recently, nothing at all may come on the Jan 13th other than another CR1 rumor for Jan 21st.

Its called "keep the pot boiling". :P

+1 agreed.

Plus it is silly to expect something major every few weeks!!!

First it was January 8th and now it's January 15th.

Hmm, I can be a 'source'  too then.

Just predict every week that there will be an announcement next week.
By the end of the year, I'll be correct at least once.

given the shortage of 60D here, as my reseller told me, i think a 70D will come very soon.

Not necessarily - the 60d segment simply got obsoleted by when the 600d->650d moved up (better af than 60d) and the 7d price dropped. It would be very unusual if Canon would release the 7d2 and 70d at the same time, much more likely they release the more expensive model first to make as much money as they can.

Its called "keep the pot boiling". :P

Suits me because even rumors about the 7d2 build pressure on the 6d that has dropped a lot in the last weeks :-)
