The Canon Rumors Buyer's Guide Launches
« on: September 04, 2017, 11:09:23 AM »
After much procrastination, we have finally launched the first version of the much requested Buyer’s Guide. The purpose of the Buyer’s Guide is help with buying decisions,  to learn a bit more about product cycles, buying options and related rumors.

What do Buy, Neutral & Don’t Buy mean?

  • Buy: New & current version, no replacement coming soon.
  • Neutral: The camera or lens could be nearing the end of its product cycle.
  • Don’t Buy: New version imminent, don’t buy if you want the latest and greatest.

We plan to add new features slowly over the coming months to the Buyer’s Guide based on user feedback.

I like the camera body information with product cycle information. Hope that will be added to the other products as well.

MPE 65 neutral?!? Expected new version? Alternative option to the MPE65?
5D2 full spectrum, 5DsR, a bunch of Zeiss (some other) primes, for documentary natural history, macro, and micro.

Clicked on link to park cameras uk for 1dx2. Price is 4,799.00 not £3499 as you quote. Most U.K. Prices vary from yours except 6d2. Keeping this guide up to date will be a nightmare for you, but 10/10 for trying, thank you.

Looks good. My only suggestion would be to add the MSRP or possibly the "Canon Store" prices as well.

The listing name for older 100/2.8 macro (the non-is one) should be corrected.
Current lising title erroneously contains the L.

Nope, stolen! I did talk to Arnold a while back to make sure it was ok. :)

Camera bodies line up along with computers as far as product cycles, lenses are a bit different and I'm still trying to figure out what will be useful for glass.

In your lens rumors posts you've often mentioned individual features, rather than the age of the design.  Maybe you could start by compiling a list of specific features/attributes of lenses, then try to guess which drive upgrades.  Clearly, IS and AF speed/accuracy are notable motivations to refresh a lens, and maybe video-oriented features, also.

This is really good - thanks.

Canon 6D II Days Since Last Release 67
Days Between Previous Releases  EOS 6D: Announced Sep 17, 2012 1,746

It would be nice if there was a count-down to the next release :)

Days until Canon 6D III = only another 1,679 (4 yrs, 7 months, 6 days)

I have found the Mac Rumors guide extremely helpful. I don't buy computers or electronic gadgets very often, so my diligence about product cycles and tendency to upgrade specs relate to that habit. Similarly for cameras. Right now I'm looking toward a 6D2, so that one is fairly obvious. If I do buy a FF, I know I'll be wanting to add some lenses. I don't have any EF lenses wider than 50mm. Thanks for this addition to the site.
