New DSLR and PowerShots in May [CR2]
« on: April 02, 2014, 06:23:56 AM »
We’re told to finally expect some significant camera announcements from Canon in May. There will be a couple of PowerShot’s announced, most notably the SX60 IS and its 100x zoom, as well as a DSLR. The assumption on the DSLR is that it will be the follow-up to the EOS 7D.

We should also expect at least 2 new lenses, with one possibly being EF-S.

There will be a bunch of announcements in August as well, as Canon gears up for Photokina 2014 in Cologne, Germany.

Who wants to bet that come may 1st, we'll get a CR2 about new cameras in June?

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!

so there is a guy who knows something. but he knows not what it is. ;)

im curious how this rumor biz works.

if someone knows that canon will announce a DSLR he sure knows what DSLR?
if not he is just reporting a rumor HE heard from another source.

is there no source, no real deep throat, who actually has some inside information?
it seems most rumors come from "unknown new source".

it doesn´t have to be a developing engineer. that´s maybe a bit much asked. ;)
but there are plant workers, package designer, etc. etc. 

even if those people don´t know stuff month in advance, at some point the manufacturer have to start producing material for the camera... and the camera.

some (not all) stuff is immediately available after announcement.

how is canon able to controll information that much?
with outside companys and assembly-line worker?

camera rumor sites seem to be pretty clueless untill the official announcement.

We'll see...this may be more of the slow 7DII water torture drip-feed of possible announcement scraps we're fed on a monthly basis.
Guess the 7DII has to happen some time, so why not May?  ;D

At this point I think I'd prefer a 6dmkii with 5 FPS and 19 pt AF. Still not as good as the 5dmkiii but at least something a little more usable

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)
Hurry up Canon and do something with your sensors! :P

I believe next Slr will be a eos rebel/kiss/xxx series camera to replace the eos 700d.  7d replacement might come at photokina. also any word on when will canon replace ef 50mm macro? that is the oldest lens in canon line-up and needs to be replaced soon.

+1
More likely photokina for the 7D MKII and a 750D as yearly update in April/May. The real question is, when will the 7D MK II actually be available?

+1. Most rebels are announced around now.
What I do today is important because I am exchanging a day of my life for it.

Probably a rebel camera with the sensor from the the 70D, they couldn't release another 18mp rebel camera or could they!

completely forgot about the 135mm soft-focus. although last time I talked with a canon dealer in India, I was told 135 soft focus is not available anymore in stock. probably that lens has been discontinued. even adorama doesnt have that lens listed on their site.
