We’ve known for a while what is likely coming ahead of CP+ this month, the trade show starts March 1, 2018 in Yokohama, Japan.

Canon EOS M50 A mirrorless camera between the EOS M6 and EOS M100. We expect the price of it to be close to the EOS M6.

Canon EOS Rebel T7 The replacement for the EOS Rebel T6.

Canon EOS Rebel T100 A new low cost model below the EOS Rebel T7.

Speedlite 470EX AI Auto Bounce Judging by the name, this will be a flash with some new technology.

New Lenses If new lenses are announced, they’re likely to just be new kit lenses. We haven’t seen any evidence of anything too exciting, but there’s always a chance.

We’re hoping for a surprise coming from Canon for CP+, perhaps a development announcement or something exciting with the EOS M50.

And that's just it? What about the special VIP invitation? A separate event?

Wouldn't it make sense to announce the EF-M 50mm equivalent at the same time?

Speedlite EX470...

I'm at a loss here - The 430-iii has radio... swivel/tilt... just smaller than the 600. What's to add to make a 470? Is there really a need for a size between the 600 and 430? I was hoping the new flash would be 3xx or 2xx size with radio, at least as a slave.

Does the M Prime rumor fall outside the February list? As I saw nothing about the invite  story changing to the M50 I am now wondering what is really solid on the EF-M lens front.

Yes, the EF-M prime is scheduled for September ahead of Photokina.

+1 I was hoping for 270EX III-RT or something like that, since it was supposed to be small and to have some prosumer level features

There is no RT in the new flash name so we can assume there is no RT in the flash. I'm not exactly sure what other technology they can stuff into a flash, other than to make it smaller. If it used LPE6 Batteries, that would be cool, I guess  :D
