Canon to Make a Big Splash at Photokina? [CR2]
« on: July 30, 2014, 09:32:37 AM »

*UPDATE*

The something “big” teaser from Canon India turns out to be a photo contest. See it here.


We’re told there are tons of new DSLR products coming for Photokina this September. The announcement for the new stuff should happen on September 4th or 5th, depending on where you are in the world. Our source has mentioned a DSLR body as well as a host of lenses for various budgets.


What will be announced?

First up, the successor to the EOS 7D will be announced. We’re told that there’s “a lot of the 1D X” in the new camera. As well as some revolutionary sensor technology.


What about lenses?

We’re getting more confirmations that the EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS will be replaced by a new version with a rotating zoom instead of the push/pull design that the lens currently uses. It looks like Canon India is teasing a new “big” lens on their Facebook page.


The following lenses I’d rate as [CR1], as they’re the first time I’ve heard about them for Photokina this year.


We’re told that at least one EF-S lens is possible, most likely a replacement to the EF-S 18-200. The lens could be replaced with an 18-300 IS STM.


Another lens we’re told to expect is targeted at the EOS 6D user. It will be a “cheaper version of the 28-300L” lens. Canon is lacking a big range non L zoom for full frame cameras.

Will the EF-S lens have weather sealing?  I'm concerned about it getting water inside from the 'big splash'.  I believe we'll see a 7DII.  Nothing other than a bona fide Canon press release will make me believe in an updated 100-400L.   8)
EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses

If they were talking about a camera,  why would they state "Get your camera ready"? My guess -a new online photo sharing service  ;)

The single most interesting thing is going to be the sensor in the new camera.  I want to know if Canon is going to compete with Sony or keep putting lipstick on  their current sensor technology.  This will help me decide where my  future camera dollars are going to be spent.

A lot of 1Dx in the 7DII ... Interesting!

This is exciting and worrying .. if it's too good, I might have to open my wallet ... again  :-\
or maybe put the 5DIII up for sale.

I think it means Get your camera ready, so that you can to sell it and upgrade to the 7D MKII.  :P

They are hinting at a new big lens.  It might be a new 100-400L.

My existing one is not up for sale - Yet ;)

I hear you brother.  No new sensor and I buy a Sony A7R
