No More New Photographic Gear From Canon in 2017 [CR3]
« on: November 02, 2017, 01:17:06 PM »

Earlier this week we posted new Canon gear that had appeared for overseas certification, this lead to some speculation that we’d be seeing more new cameras and lenses in 2017.


I have confirmed that this is not the case. There will however be a lot of gear coming in early 2018 for CES in January and CP+ in February.







We’re still trying to nail down without a shadow of a doubt what the new lenses and flash will be. We were told that the new flash was scheduled to be released in 2017, but ended up being pushed into 2018.


I don’t want to speculate on the two new lenses, so I’ll let you know what they are as soon as I can [CR3] them.


More to come…

There is more than enough to chose from and too many folks need to work on their skillset instead of feeding the GAS troll. Like me!

Unless one of the new lenses is an EF 50 prime.  I will feed that troll all day.

And it's not quite a gear 'syndrome' if there are just two things you want (that lens and spot metering at any AF point in a non 1-series body).  It's more obsessive behavior than a systemic buy-to-be-happy or 'hoarding everything new' problem.

600mm F4 DO would be fantastic.

Well there's only really the 7D3 left in terms of the definite-for-sure-100%-totally-coming releases, and that was always expected for 2018. With only two months left and no time to ship any new products to stores before the primary purchasing season, it would make no sense for Canon to announce anything new from now until the new year.

600mm F4 DO would be fantastic.
I swear you're a goddamn bot.

No 4k? I'm leaving for Sony

No new camera models to counter every other new camera model by another manufacturer?  I'm selling it all to Keh.com

No digifilm? I'm joining the Yashica kickstarter

Top ranked customer service and solid dependable products? I'm too cool for that!

After the 85mm f/1.4L IS USM, I expect Canon to release a 50mm f/1.4L IS USM soon, only priced way beyond what I'm willing to pay.

At this point my wish list starts & ends with the 16-35mm f/2.8L mkIII, which I'm saving to buy in a few months.

No more gear from Canon this year? Good, my economy can't handle more G.A.S at the moment!
Preferred gear: 5D IV, 35/1.4L, 85/1.4L IS, 70-200/2.8L IS, Elinchrom RX
Backup: 5D II, 17-40/4L, 85/1.8, 100-400/4.5-5.6L, Yongnuo + 622

I really hope they put out a 135 IS in 2018. That would be one killer lens.

I am really in the need of sth. wider than 70mm to combine with the 70-200 4.0 IS and I really want a larger aperture + IS. The 50 1.4 IS would give me 7 stops more light without tripod (with 4 stop IS).
Two things are essential: moderate footprint of the lens and good max reproduction ratio of 1:4 or 1:5 to make it a good universal lens.
Price wise? 1000 bucks would be o.k. if it is "small", has a small close focus distance and gorgous IQ.
Most used tools: EOS 200D + EF-S 60mm + 4.0 / 70-200 IS AND/OR EOS 5D i  + 4.0 70-200 IS + 2.8 100 Macro

So, if I heard you right:

f/1.4
IS
Max mag 0.20x - 0.25x
Small design
Gorgeous IQ

Methinks you won't get all five of those in a non-L instrument.  I think future 50s are likely to be one or two of the following three directions:

Stay small --> it's a non-L 50 f/1.4 USM replacement

Go for sharpness --> it'll be huge pickle jar a la Otus or Art (this would be an L lens, see attached)

Go for magic --> heavy but compact ball of glass; sort of a straight sequel to the current 50L

But I do not believe you can shoot for the moon on sharpness, bokeh and in a compact format. Small size would limit how much magic or sharpness you can deliver without requiring Hubble telescope-like tolerancing and cost.
