*UPDATED* Here's an Updated 2017 Canon Roadmap
« on: December 05, 2016, 02:01:33 PM »
The rumormill has gone quiet for the moment, though we expect it to pick up ahead of CPS next month. Below is what we believe we know is coming in 2017, and we expect there are going to be other products as well.

DSLR

  • Canon EOS 77D
    • Release Date: Either for CES in January or CP+ in February
  • Canon EOS Rebel T7i
    • Release Date:Either for CES in January or CP+ in February
  • Canon EOS 6D Mark II
    • Release Date: Late spring or early summer 2017.

PowerShot

  • Canon PowerShot SX70 HS
    • Release Date: Unknown
  • Canon PowerShot G9 X Mark II
    • Release Date: Ahead of CES in January

Lenses

  • Canon EF-S 18-55 f/3.5-5.6 IS STM II
    • Release Date: Either for CES in January or CP+ in February
  • Canon EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM
    • Release Date: Unknown
  • A second lens released alongside the Rebels
    • We’re told there may be an “interesting lens” coming around the same time as the Rebels.

Cinema EOS

  • Canon Cinema EOS C100 Mark III
    • Release Date: Unknown, but NAB would be a logical guess.
  • Canon Cinema EOS anamorphic lens
    • We think at least one is coming for NAB in April.

EOS M

  • EOS M3 replacement
    • Release Date: Likely coming in February ahead of CP+

We’ll update the roadmap on a regular basis as we learn more about Canon plans.

It's going to be a cheap year for me then.
6D, 30D, 383L+, 28f1.8, 50STM, 100f2.0, 5.5"f8 scope, 12"f5 scope.
Personal Gripe:   "I could care less about.." = there are things less important too me, this may be my most important thing.
"I couldn't care less about.." = this is the bottom of my list.. it is so unimportant.

* Sharlin wonders how close the 8x0D will be to the 80D. They will probably retain the 19pt AF system. DPAF is more than not, I'd wager.

And by this you'd pay more for the kit lens than for the 1300D/Rebel T5.
Try your next wish ;)


Edit:
"Your" lens already exists and is called EF-S 15-85mm f3.5-5.6 IS USM. But it is slightly more expensive than a normal kit lens.
And the main reason therefore are not the additional 30 mm on the long end nor the 3 mm on the wide.

@Canon Rumors
Can you please try to name the bodies (if known) also in their other brand-names like Canon f.e. 760D (european market) or Kiss X5 (asian market). Thanks in advance. It's always quite difficult to coop with the Txi/Txs names if you're not used to.So this will be an 800D + 810D equivalent?
5DC, 5DM3, 85 1.2L II, 80-200 2.8L, 100 2.8L IS, 14 2.8, 35 1.4, 75-300 IS, 135 1.8, 40STM, 24-85, Helios 44-2, Zeiss Lenses, and real cams like Zenza Bronica ETRSi or Fuji GX680

The probability of this happening is exactly zero. It would be the stupidest decision ever made.

Does this mean we should count out the previous CR1 for Canon's "internal roadmap to merge the 5DS(R) into a 5DS Mk2 in 2017"?

I was getting excited about the 5DIV sensor tech being applied to the already appealing 5DS line :D

About 18 months back (give or take) there were some CR2 level rumors on the TS-E 45 & 90mm lenses being updated with newer versions (although the 90 was likely to be some a different focal length longer than 90).

The rumors on that just sort of went dark and I haven't seen anything further.  Is that rumor dead or is there still something expected?

So if I have this right:

  • Still no FF mirrorless, not even a low risk fixed lens offering like the RX1, Leica Q, etc.
  • No replacement to numerous 20+ year old mid-grade USM primes (20 f/2.8, 28 f/1.8, 50 f/1.4, 85 f/1.8, 100 f/2)
  • No higher quality lenses for EF-M
  • No wide + fast + coma free prime purpose-built for astro
  • No budget relatively affordable not super expensive long 200-600 zoom to compete with the influx of new offerings, and also to entice the higher-end crop camp to stay with Canon instead of giving the D500 + 200-500 f/5.6 VR a spin.

AvTvM might actually be right this time.  I appreciate there's a lot of 'compulsories' in the pipeline (Rebels, 6D2, etc.), but one would think there'd be room to address some long-skipped-over areas of improvement.
