If it's more than 150 on the wide end, then I definitely won't be interested.  If I want a narrow range of focal lengths, I'll get a 400/5.6.  I want a zoom because I need a zoom.

Sony makes a 70-400.

Canon's recent L zooms are cited as having prime like image quality. I could live with a 200-400 like that.

The new 70-200 is like that, it has a bigger than 2x zoom range, and because it's both wider and faster, its harder to build than a zoom ending in 400/5.6 with the same zoom range.

It shouldn't be hard at all for Canon to build a 100-400 replacement with at least the optical quality of the 70-200 ii.

Yep, it's a rumor site, step right on through the mirror...

But then what's the point in talking about any rumor here?

let's just strip it down to "a camera and a lens will be released, probably in September". That's pretty generic and hard to refute until September.

But if you say "APS-C and telephoto" I should think a full frame camera and a wide angle zoom are in the works, possibly?

Seems to me you're trying to butter both sides of the bread.


RUMOR

Deal with it.

Exactly.  A rumor is, by definition, uncertain.  Ascribing a detailed level of specificity to the terminology used in a rumor seems rather foolish.

There were rumors a while back suggesting a new wide angle lens would be released...and now we have the 16-35mm f/4L IS.  According to your viewpoint, the rumors were flat out wrong because the 16-35/4L is not a wide angle lens, it's a ultra-wide zoom lens.

The point is, construing a rumor stating 'telephoto lens' as excluding the possibility of a telephoto zoom lens is not logical.

Not according to my viewpoint, and don't put words in my mouth.

And pay attention!

I pointed out that Canon have a specific, limited identification of what is meant by "telephoto" in their lineup. I pointed this out as an interesting consideration - not because I am a pedant trying to one up other members.

agreed!
And even if we were to say that the Canon website listing the lenses was the ultimate authority....note that the 200-400 is listed as a super-telephoto... not a super telephoto zoom, and not a telephoto zoom...

I hope this sufficiently confuses the issue :)
The best camera is the one in your hands

A consideration...but an irrelevant one, and not terribly interesting.

A rumor is not a precisely-crafted press release.  It's word-of-mouth, sometimes two or more conversations distant from the source (e.g. a friend of a friend who's an engineer at Canon says...)

There is ZERO reason to believe that Canon's precise definition (even if true) has carried through to this CR3 post.

You are trying to create a Swiss watch from Swiss cheese.

CR3 makes this near real...right?

Real.  Just like aliens.



Aliens are real.  The rest of us are just figments of their imagination.

Of course they are real. They cross the border in their droves every day.
