After all these years, I still get burned on misinformation from time to time, though a lot less than at the beginning. I should have stopped at the C-Log.
When you're right, no on says anything. When you're wrong..... omg! The hate emails have started already
For the record, The EF 85mm f/1.4L IS is real and will be coming in a few months (along with the 6D2)!
I'm sure canon is receiving some hate emails too.. i noticed some on dpreview stating it as fact yesterday. lol.
it was a pretty amazing rumor though. the dude spent alot of time on it.
maybe it has been discussed and bandied about.. do you remember how fare back the C700 specs were?
or it could be a mythical beast called a 5DC.. that canon will upgrade 5D Mark IV's into for a fee.
For the kicker, those C700 specs that came out OVER A YEAR BEFORE the actual release, I thought came pretty close to the actual camera other than the different form factor. (i.e. Remember that massive brochure on the very C500-like C700x? - the pages are STILL on Google Images and they are darn close to being spot on with the real C700 camera in terms of specs!)
I'm gonna say that SOMEBODY knows more than they're letting on ...SOOOOO.... don't be too surprised to see a Full Frame Mirrorless Canon Camera any day now or even a large-sensor Medium Format Canon Camera in the near future (i.e. within two years!).
Maybe the film side is much leakier, as they are dealing with producers, hollywood,etc probably given them prototype units as they need them,etc. it was even a brochure format if i recall. it was pretty much dead on. In all the years of following canon rumors, it's the only time I can recall soemthing like that happening so far in advance.
and thank you btw, for your longer sentences, so much easier to read.
I wouldn't be shocked by a full frame 6D like mirrorless EF mount camera alongside the 6D EF mount DSLR.
IMO .. I think that would be easy for canon to do. I could be wrong though - all that EVF firmware,etc is tied up into the powershot firmware, so it could be alot of heavy lifting adding all that into a EOS camera.
