*UPDATE* Announcements on March 22, 2013?
« Reply #1 on: March 07, 2013, 02:35:56 AM »
UPDATE
Invites appear to have gone out for March 21, 2013 in the Czech Republic, the invite can be seen below.

A Thursday announcement day is a bit different. Most announcement days I can remember are either on a Tuesday or a Friday. I’ll probably see more invites in the coming days that will clarify the date.

Canon EOS 70D Coming?
A few places are mentioning March 22, 2013 as an announcement date for Canon. We’re expecting the new Canon EOS 70D to be announced, and it will be a big step up from the EOS 60D in terms of technology.

Also expect some lower end PowerShots to be announced on the same day as the EOS 70D. There is no word on a lens announcement.

By the way. If this had been a Nikon event, and new Nikon gear were to be announced, it would already be revealed at Nikonrumors, with pics and info.

Why is Nikon so much better at leaking their stuff?

Canon has always been tight, they're even tighter now. Having images of gear 2 weeks before an announcement is pretty rare in both camps. However, Canon has leaked images in the past for big announcements.

I would think a 14-24 would HAVE to be announced with a high megapixel beast as the 1ds3 was announced with the 14 II...so hopefully Q3/Q4 announcements this year, but would love to be proved wrong!

Lenses if anything announced with a crop camera this quarter I would guess:
+ 100-400 II or some 70/80-400 (Sony and Nikon have released similar lenses this quarter or would seem like a nice lens to announce with the 7D II later?)
+ 50 F/1.4 II / 50 F/2 IS or some new EF-S 35mm 1.8 (Nikon catch up)
+ 35mm 1.4 II

Though I could also see Canon not playing catch up again and throwing a curve ball with some new 45 and 90 tilt shifts! Or in tribute to the 17-40 released in early 2003 a new "affordable" <$1k ultra wide angle EF zoom version like Nikon's 18-35!

Hope so. Not only for the 70D. Also for any other announcement further down the road and on every higher priced product level as well. Especially sensor tech for improved IQ at ultra high ISOs 51k and beyond. Am I dreaming? Yes. I never stop.  8)

Not that I want to side with the majority of pessimists in this forum, but a big step up in technology might just mean WiFi and GPS just like the 6D. I'd love to be wrong, the XXD line has been going downhill in popularity since the 40D (And of course, the release of the 7D). If they can bump both XXD series and 7D up a notch in sensor tech (the usual small bump for high ISO, but an even bigger bump in lower ISO DR) and more AF points with higher sensitivities I would at least be happy with that in addition to the spec of the "current" models.

I'm more keen on a 70D announcement, coz it would be vital as I'll be upgrading in a month or two.

Considered both 60D and 7D as old if i were to upgrade now, so its either a 70D or go FF with 6D for me.

Definitely keeping tab on this.
Tsk! Come on son..

I'd go 6D if finances aren't an issue.

... However, Canon has leaked images in the past for big announcements.

Yes, Canon is almost famous for "accidental" postings of press releases, product spec pages, images, etc... within two weeks of an announcement - often on "official", though obscure, sites. :)

Im thinking it (if its a 70D) will be a slight upgrade to the current 7D but with wifi and gps kind of like the 6d was to the 5d2 and a 7d2 announcement will follow a little bit down the road. Would be nice to see them both at the same time! Either way it better have a nice AF system with more than 11 points...
