After CES Whats Next for Canon?
« on: January 18, 2013, 03:22:46 PM »

After a decided lack of exciting Canon DSLR announcements  at CES, the next big show coming up will be CP+ from January 31  – Feb 3 2013.  Canon and Nikon each have  huge spaces reserved for their exhibits at the Pacifico Yokohama, Japan exihibition hall and traditionally have made some major announcements at CP+.


Will the long awaited EF 200-400mm f/4 L finally be announced?  It was two years ago in 2011 at CP+ that Canon announced that lens development program, so what better place to announnce the lens formally.


Many are also thinking a 70D or the 7D Mark II is due.


We do not have any inside information or leaks at this point, so this is just pure speculation, but Canon is almost certain to announce some new products.


New lenses are the toughest products to predict, but recent new lens rumors beyond the 200-400mm f/4 L  might find fufillment at CP+ as well.


Expect  more to come and rumors will abound as the show gets near. If there is to be a major announcement, it should happen in the next 10 days.

14-24L and the high MP body would be sweet!

I do expect the 14-24L to be announced. The world have waited long enough.

Well, perhaps we'll get an "in development announcement", and then a formal announcement at CP+ 2015.  ::)

I second that- would really like a 14-24 and the 7DII to be announced.

Well, perhaps not "shabby", but they are lagging behind in some important areas - mainly in the sensor department (DR and resolution). They still haven't fixed the banding / pattern noise either.

And don't even get me started on how they still don't have a decent UWA-zoom available (none that is sharp across the frame, like the Nikon 14-24).

Yes. I think new sensor technology will be announced one way or another. I really hope the big MP camera is at least announced as "in development" Better to have an actual release date...  ;-)

Although highly unlikely according to various opinions, announcing the 14-24 would be simply wonderful.
The 7D Mark II (separately) would potentially be an even bigger surprise.

In regards to a high MB Canon, I suspect it's mostly vaporware for now.  Looks to me like Canon was caught by utter surprise by Nikon's D800.  What was Canon corp to do as a response, admit, "uh, we don't have S___ for a high MB camera."?  No, to save face and try preventing a sea of defections, they start rumors of "uh, yeah, we're working on one.  Yeah, that's it, we're working on one."  And when months pass with nothing but words emerging from Canon, they change their tune to "It's new technology... yeah, that's it, that's it, that's why we can't show anybody anything.  It's neeewwww technology."

(h/t Jon Lovitz)
Yeah, I guess Canon doesn't have a response for those high amount of MB the D800 file size have because of the high amount of MegaPixels in that camera. Not a bad thing necessarily.
Are you somehow implying that the high MP file size bothers you? Are you also thinking that disk space / external disk space is expensive or hard to get?

In that case, think again!  ;D Disk space is getting bigger and cheaper by the day. It is also getting physically smaller, so don't tell me that extra disk space is a nuisance.

I'd have no problem with storing 36MP files, or even 60MP files for that matter. No problem with processing them either.

Well, then you get a buffer of a couple of minutes. My point was he said MB and not MP

That is what I thought until I compared it to the 14-24 from Nikon. The 16-35 just doesn't cut it when it comes to landscape photography, and you will see why when you compare the lenses.

If Canon's 14-24 is at least as good as Nikon's (I am sure that it will be), it will be one of Canon's best lenses ever, right up there with the 70-200 IS II.

Don't lie to yourself man. ;) Are you forgetting what you wrote in your signature?

thanks for reminding me! I just hope that it comes out soon, to lower in pricetag once I get ready to pull the trigger. I am undecisive...But yes, holding to the signature line could be the better choice. Thanks! ;-)

Actualy, the 50 mp high ISO images decompress to about 150-200mb, and they are a pain to post process, particularly with brush adjustments in LR and adding NR.  I've processed 700 images from a nights shooting with my D800 and with a reasonably fast computer, and it takes much longer to post process than a 22mb 5D MK III.  Storage is not the issue, its cheap, but having to change CF cards twice as often is a pain.  I finally bought 64mb cards to help with that.
