I guess there won't be any new lenses at CES?
« on: January 09, 2012, 11:23:14 AM »
Who else thinks Canon has no new lenses to show at the upcoming CES?

It is only one day left now before it starts, and Canon still haven't said a single word about showing new lenses at the event. This makes me doubt that they have anything to show.

I sure hope that I am wrong.

I believe you are right.  They will announce "L" lenses with a DSLR body.

You will get an applaud if they announce a 5D3. 2 applauds if 5D3 with Kit lens 24-70f/2.8 ii IS and Finally 3 applauds from me, if they also announce interactivity with iOS/Ipads in form of an SDK!   ;D

Rats.  I was hoping for some non-L lenses (e.g. 50/1.4 mk2).

Anything from Tamron and Sigma?

I actually think they are going to announce the 5D3 because Nikon stole their thunder with the D4 and the D4 doing f8 so now they are having to defend that decision, So dropping a 5D3 on everyone will be a nice "look a distraction" and will definately bring out the oooh ahhhs. of course then Nikon will drop the D800 and steal the thunder right back again :D aint competition fun?

Been waiting so long that I don't want to get my hopes high for the 5D3 ...   :(

There is the other factor at play here.

There are no rules that say Canon MUST announce what they are planning on showing at CES before the show.

Imagine getting there at 9am or whatever time it opens and seeing people rush the Nikon display, then the rumble starts as people are whispering about the Canon stand.... you head over there to see a nice shiny new 5D3.

Suddenly by doing so they not only have taken a massive shine off of Nikon but "stole the show" as it were, with their surprise announcement.

And thats how these shows SHOULD be. They should be a place for "consumers" to go to and ooo ahhh over new gadgets they won't be able to afford for many years to come.

If they announced everything before hand then you could just stay home and read about it on the interwebs.
Yes, i shoot video on a DSLR.

The most important factor is natural disaster. This is a company that had to shut down temporarily because of the devastation from a major Tsunami and suffer through continuous Earthquakes. I'm not certain, but they may also have had to forage through a limited supply of chips due to flooding in Thailand.  It hasn't been an easy year for Canon.

Well I did think it was odd that they extended the rebates on a bunch of lens from being the Sat. before the show till the beginning of Feb. hints at maybe a Canon reveal right after the rebates end.

In a related note, Monday the 9th having been a National holiday in Japan (think hordes of girls in kimonos who are all 20 years old storming shrines throughout japan), I didn't expect any announcements yesterday. 

From some of the posts here of interviews with Canon, they keep re-iterating that CES is a consumer show I had expected new non-L/EF-S lens to be announced.  Still have my hopes up that that will be the case.  A new 50mm 1.4 would be nice as well as 30mm f2.

5Dmk3 - 16-35L - 24-105L - 70-200L F2.8 mk2 - 35L - 50mm 1.4 - 100L - 600xt-rt

Same here! I keep praying they release a response to Sony and Nikon's 35mm 1.8 at a similar price point. Yes I know there is already a 35mm 2.0 from Canon but I've used it and returned it shortly after. The thing is loud and soft until stopped down a few. Yes there is the Canon 28mm 1.8 but in my country that lens is close to $700. Yes there is a Sigma 30 1.4 and too be honest it's actually a fantastic lens optically,  but the AF was hit or miss for me and wasn't worth the stress of not knowing if I got the shot or not, plus I'd like to stay with Canon for future reasons.

All I'd like is for Canon to release a fast prime lens in the 28-35mm range for us APS-C users. I know I'm not alone as this is something that has been wished by many a forum users for years. JUST DO IT ALREADY, Canon!

Yeah the pickins are slim in that range and the 24mm has all sorts of issues.  I really want a 50mm equivalent lens on my kiss x4 so i just screw it and decided last week i'll be picking up the 35L 1.4 after CES is done from the states... Will be saving close to $700 but picking it up the U.S.  (Japan is still charging close to $1900 USD for that lens...

Yeah that is a fantastic lens but for me it's just not worth it as I'm just a hobbyist and don't make money of my shots. My fiance would freak if I spent that much on a lens...lol

Might sound funny but I recently used a friends Nikon D7000 and 35mm 1.8G on a weekend night walk and have to say I was extremely impressed with the AF system compared to my Canon. If I don't hear of a new APS-C prime soon I may just jump ship. It's all about the tools and Nikon right now offers the tools I want.
