Canon Announcements on April 23, 2013? [CR2]
« on: April 07, 2013, 09:07:06 AM »
New Stuff!
We’re told Canon is holding press events on Tuesday, April 23, 2013. We have not seen any official invites, but this does come from a known source. I will post any invites I receive here to confirm.

No mention of what products to expect, though I would think an announcement for the EOS 70D must be close.

Pay close attention to the new sensor in the Canon EOS SL1 as far as performance goes. We’re told this sensor will appear in the EOS 70D, but not the EOS 7D Mark II.

BOOOORING ... don't care at all for a 70D

Would be much more interested in a hi-end Canon mirrorless .. EOS-M "done right" ... :-)

Yeah but we knew that... They don't want to undermine the 7d2.

I fully expect the 70D will be a refreshed 7D: "new" sensor with on-chip AF, built on the same process. Better sealing than 60D, somewhere in the 6-8fps range, and decent (maybe 7D) AF. Given that 7Ds now go for 1300ish new, I'd think that 7d specs would put the 70d right where they want it in the lineup. That sets them up well for a 7d2 to be a better camera, that they can charge accordingly for.
7D x2
70-200 f/2.8L - 17-55 f/2.8 IS - 10-22 f/3.5-4.5 - 85 f/1.8 - 50 f/1.4 - 28 f/1.8
580ex II - 2x 430ex II

I have to agree with this. A 70D is just another cropster.

I hope the announcement is about the long awaited high MP / high DR body, or a bunch of new lenses. Like the 35L II, 50L II, 50 1.4 II, 135L II, 14-24L, e.t.c.

Ok, Canon has just mutilated the potential of the 70D to sell well.

And expect reviews of the camera everywhere to widely condemn Canon for this continued delivery of left overs from last week microwaved and presented as fine dining.

Well we don't know that yet for sure but if this is true this will be the 10th (I believe) Canon camera with basically the same 18mp sensor. Of course what some of us wish for the 70d may not be what we get. Anyway, nothing new a lot of us Canon users are probably used to it by now.

I agree. It will be the new firmware for 5D mark 3. (AF at f8).

LOL.. if canon has proved one thing over and over again it is that they can sell even old bread well.

what people on this forum think has absolutely no influence on the mass market.
actually it´s sad because i too would like to see canon make more progess on image quality.

not that canon cameras make bad quality images.. just that IQ has not much improved over the last years.

6D, 5D MK2, 7D, 550D... a lot of Glass.

Last time I got excited about a big announcement I was dissapointed.

This better not be some baloney about some lame extra picture styles or a new shop opening in China.

5D II | 17-40L | 24-105L | 70-200 f4L IS | 135L | SY 14mm f/2.8 | Sigma 50 f/1.4

EOS M | 22 f/2 | 11-22 IS

Correction: Canon's IQ hasn't changed or improved over the last years for anything besides those moving from the 1D series to the 1DX. Nikon, Sony, Pentax, are all delivering new sensors with better performance.

What is Canon doing?

Nothing. What a joke of a company.

Even I could beat Usain Bolt if he stands still on the track and just lately Canon seem to be standing still which leaves the chance for others to beat them.
