Bad News Closing out 2013? [CR2]
« on: September 20, 2013, 06:19:31 AM »

Nothing new for the EOS/EF family in 2013?

We’ve received word from a very good source that Canon has no more product announcements for EOS or EF in 2013. There is always the possibility of a “development” announcement, but no new product will be announced or shipped in 2013.


The same source had previously said that only 1 entry level DSLR will begin shipping in Q1 of 2014.


EOS M?

I hoping to hear confirmation from the same source as to whether or not EOS M is included in the “no new products for the EOS/EF line in 2013″.


CR’s Take

I think manufacturers are going to ride out a pretty stagnant year and try to build a lot of hype for 2014. Economic recovery around the globe will further recover and we should expect a very exciting 2nd half of 2014 for new gear.

This makes room  for a high MP body and a 7DII. And hopefully some new (and improved versions of current lenses) glass

Wouldn't bank on economic recovery 'cos the factors causing it aren't going away  :(

IMHO, world economy has little to do with the dismal performance of Japanese camera companies. Blame it all on camera phones.

This is a really beneficial rumor: It is beneficial to our bank accounts, because people won't be likely to purchase anything new, simply because there ain't nothing new.

Hurrah! More time to save up for the mythical (and hopefully truely awesome) 7D MKII and a 100-400 replacement (hopefully around f4).  Fingers crossed it'll be before July next year, in time for the holiday...

That's great news, because I've already spend every € I had allocated for Canon gear, so no new products won't make me regret for example getting the old 17-40L - thanks for my peace of mind, Canon :->

I wouldn't mind a new, smaller rt flash though, dunno if this counts as "eos" gear or not, this is getting embarrassing with Yongnuo releasing one radio flash/trigger after the other.
