Anyone have any speculation on what the new lens' could be?

Personally I am hoping for the rumored 50mm f/1.8 IS but there have also been some rumors lately of a replacement to the 100mm-400mm

The problem is: It could be anything. Here are some of my suggestions:
  • It might be a more lightweight mark II 800mm lens, taunting all those happy 600mm mark II owners to upgrade
  • It might be a new 35mm to put some distance between Canon's offering and Sigma's offering
  • It might be a new TS-E lens for product photography (wasn't something like this announced already?)
  • It might be a new 20mm wide-angle (for whatever reason I like that focal length, but this one is merely wishful thinking on my part)
  • It might be another movie-oriented lens

The last one is what I really expect (and don't need or want at all).

I really hope that Canon doesn't release another rebel series dslr.. I still see t3i being sold and don't even see the t4i much and even less of the t5i.  the price differences are so minimal now too.  Just stop.  lol  Who wouldn't be happy to see a new rebel like every 1.5-2 yrs?  Maybe it's just me?  anyways, rumors rumors~~

Let's just hope it will be a 7D Mark II so that at least this waiting game is finally over and we will have a nice new camera to talk about and not just the frustrated concerns regarding what we have come to expect to be released.

Exactly…instead of frustrated discussion of what we expect, there will be frustrated dicsussion of the reality.  :P

Reading some tea leaves:

  • May is not a good time for the 7DII: too close to Photokina, but yet, not quite close enough.
  • If it is a Rebel/XXXD it will almost certainly have the 70d sensor.
  • They've milked the T3i for a long time, yet it is still the number one selling DSLR on Amazon. Seems like a dilemma to me.
  • Canon is disappointed by the SL1 sales. A safe approach might be to make the SL2 the next camera with dual pixel sensor.
  • If it is not the 7DII, then I think that increases the odds that the 7DII will have a new sensor.

The Rebel updates aren’t for us, they’re for people who don’t have dSLRs, or have an old Rebel that’s been sitting in a drawer since 6 months post purchase and think that buying a new camera will rekindle their ‘love for photography’.  If they keep bringing in fresh meat then they don’t have to worry about attrition loses of cantankerous enthusiasts that sit on a website discussing Canon product.  They pretty much already got us right where they want us.

I'm off to shoot the sunrise with my 5 year old camera body, then blow my canon budget on a road bike. Have fun!

Buying a good road bike is possibly even more of a challenge than getting a good camera, there are just so many options!!  ;)

Are you going to get a CANONdale road bike?

Heh. That's precisely why a new Rebel makes sense.

Canon now has two entry-level Rebels - the new T5 and the SL1. Both are $500 models, basically.
To charge a premium for the higher-end Rebel, Canon needs to better differentiate it from the entry level models.
Hence, it makes the most sense for Canon to update the 700D/T5i next. Probably with the 70D sensor and video features.

maybe there will be a software upgrade announcement for the current 7d. Maybe this amazing upgrade will cost 300$ and give us the security, that no 3rd party batteries are used.... as a special goody it may contain a lens correction profile for the 18-55 STM lens

The higly anticipated lens announcement may be an 18-55 ii STM lens, which optically matches the layout of the software upgrade, with a perfectly weather sealed AF swich, printed on the lens in premium white and cant be switched unwanted

Has there ever been a 7DII release-date related rumour at the CR2 level? (but as they say, sooner or later, it'll eventually be true lol)

I'm not sure if there has been, but note that this one is not.  It's a CR2 rumor of a new dSLR, and "the assumption is" (presumably CRguy's assumption) that it will be the 7DII.  Personally, I agree with the sentiments above that it will be a new Rebel/xxxD body (assuming one is announced at all).

If you go by the fact that the 7D is old, outdated, and the 70D gives you a better (arguably) camera for a lower price and is killing 7D sales, then the 7D2 would have to be the next update.... but you can't forget that the Rebels are the vast bulk of Canon DSLR sales and that an updated ( even very minor) Rebel will have far more impact on the bottom line than the 7D2 will have...

Despite my almost delusional desire for a 7D2, to me it makes sense that the next camera will be a new Rebel.... after all, the T5i is a year old and overdue for a replacement.....

Unfortunately, I agree. It's a Rebel... New Rebels are released every year around this time...

Frankly, I think they need a new Rebel.

The T4i was well received, but that was 2 years ago.  The T5i was largely considered a rebadged T4i and was NOT well received because of it.

To most, the T5i is a 2 year old design.  Looking at what Nikon has to offer, at least on paper, their entry level cameras look more appealing.  I believe they all (at least the current versions of each series) have wifi and (for what it's worth) auto focus in video, which the T3i does not (not sure about the T5).

Since these are the models that sell in the highest volume and they are a gateway product, they need to be kept fresh and competitive.

I think the T6i needs dual pixel and wifi, which will in my opinion, make it class leading.  This doesn't seem like a stretch for the next Rebel, but we'll see.  I don't think anybody expected the T5i was going to offer so little over the T4i.
