Canon's Roadmap for 2013 [CR2]
« on: January 27, 2013, 05:50:46 AM »

What’s coming this year

A very reliable source has told us what Canon has planned in 2013 as far as product launches go. This is looking to be a slower year for new Canon products, especially when compared to 2012.


None of this includes new Cinema EOS products.


Cameras

There will be 3 DSLRs launched in 2013, two of them will be “entry level” and one will be “mid level”. The two entry level cameras will probably be a new Rebel and a 70D.


The midlevel camera is probably the EOS 7D Mark II. This camera will get its own launch festivities sometime in the second half of 2013 we’re told.


There will also be one new EOS-M body, which is a pretty logical step forward for the platform.


Lenses

4 new EF lenses will be launched in 2013, there was no mention of exactly which lenses it would be. We all know the usual suspects, and everything points to a new 100-400L and that would sit nicely next to a new 7D.


We’re hoping to get a more detailed breakdown of the upcoming lenses soon.

I believe in a 100-400 L II when I see it. This lens is the successor of the never going to be updated 24-70 2.8 IS / II here on CannonRumors ::)

It would be nice to have an update on the 50mm f/1.4 - at least I am curious about it.

What would be the improvement in a new 50 f/1.4 have over the old one?
As an amateur the current lens works pretty well for me. Took a picture just yesterday. Very low light. Only source was a flatscreen. No NR applied.

7 D II in the 2. half of 2013 ->  :'(

The  100-400 L successor will be a favorite for me, because my >10 year old pulling zoom 100-400 is sometimes hard to handle if it is cold. But it will be much more expensive....


I am for a little while in the hotel @ Kitzbuehel (Austria (Europe)), freezing a little bit, because it is very cold here on the venue.
Seen Arni, and 2 persons that carry interresting Canon Cameras and lenses. But they turned away, when they saw that I was interrested in their gear. 2 Mid sized bodies with a lot of lenses. One big lens with an bulge on the beginning near the Cam. One mid sized turning zoom.
They used an handheld laptop to look at the pictures the other photographer made, when the skiiers passed. Taking the temperature and measuring something with an sensor that was glueing on the Lens.

Today it is more easy to shoot, the speed is moderate. Yesterday, my 7D and my 60D had some problems with the horrible speed of the skiers. Many unsharp pics...

But one photographer had an super zoom: Green, very fat. Seems to be very heavy. And mounted on an special  tripod. This guy moved around "Rumpelstilzchen". Using an big Nikon.

Nice shot.

I started with the 50mm and 7D. I tested the Canon and didn't like it. I ended up with the Sigma. The Sigma is great on APS-C but not such a great performer when using with the 5D MKIII. So I checked 3 copies of the Canon on the FF. Below f2 not very sharp. So, I am still waiting what Canon can offer in a new model. Just curious.

It really depends on what the level definition is - looking a the prices for "top-level" cinema eos & 1dx $2.5k might still qualify for mid-level, esp. if a $1.5k 70d is now "entry level" :-o

I wouldn't be surprised if the new cameras are either very expensive (7d2) or very gimmick-oriented (70d = 60d + wifi + gps + afma + touchscreen). After all the very plain 6d is $2000, so a more af/fps/fw-capable camera that only lacks high iso performance should be at least as expensive.

I think that...the best thing would be that if someone would make an adapter to allow canon lenses to be used on Nikon bodies, you would see a sales drop in Canon bodies.
Canon is taking waaay too long to get their proverbial $hit together.

Let's see... 100-400 f/4-5.6L IS II, 14-24 f/2.8L, and TSE-90 f/2.8L, and TSE-45 f/2.8L.

That's four, right? :P

Canon seems to be thinking they float outside evolution.
