so 2014... "the year of the lens".
and the no. 1 canon rumor website has no clue at all what´s coming?
NSA secrets are leaked but canon is tight as an oyster?
80% of the articles on this website are deals lately.
sure the website has to make money but the lack of true rumors is a bit disappointing.
You may want to temper your expectations about the site, kiddo.
1. CR, as I understand it, is a passive reporting site. When they are told something from a reasonable source, you as a reader have a place where you can find out about it. I don't seem them doing "investigative journalism," spending days and nights on the phones cultivating deep sources, poring over arcane documents and shipping information, etc. I believe they also walk a fine line -- Canon is not averse to legal actions. I may be wrong, but I think there have already been skirmishes here.
2. As I've often said, the state of journalism in the photography world is abominable. The information about what's coming is not that hard to get -- there are too many suppliers and shippers involved to be otherwise. A good journalist could get indicative information that could be confidently reported. Hell, Apple can't keep secrets. There's also the point of playing the game a certain way. Many manufacturers use controlled leaks, and that does not appear to be common in the photography equipment world.
Finally, as for NSA "secrets" getting out, you may have noticed the people who got the info out are now tightly locked up in limbo situations. I wouldn't expect CR to go out on that kind of a limb.
So, in between the waves of really juicy rumors, we bide our time here in forum chattering mostly about silly things.
