« on: February 27, 2012, 06:11:44 AM »

70D?
IXUS?

It's time for the 650D. Don't expect the 70D before the Photokina in Cologne this autumn.

I'm hoping for something to rival the D800, which the 5D3 obviously won't do.

The D800 has 36MP, full weather sealing, pro AF, non AA-filter version e.t.c...

I think it's about time Canon release a mirrorless line.  ;D

Also, I hope I am not the only one who thinks the Pentax mirrorless using existing mount a terrific idea. After all, size isn't just about how thin the camera is, which is directly related to the flange range.

For that it should be named 3D and we've all been waiting for it...

I think we will see another FF this year but probably in Photokina... So another vote for 650D

Why would they bring out a 650D, when the 60D is less than 18months old and still selling well?

The new 7D will come out before the new 60D, as the new 60D will inherit the new 7D's sensor etc, and the 7d is older.
The 600D is even newer than the 60D, so apart from the 7D (and the new 5D MkIII), I think Canon would only bring out a new DSLR into a new category and not to replace any current models for the time being at least.

I could understand that Canon would bring out a mirrorless camera, using the new sensor from the GX1 and the ability to use EF-S lenses, as this would be a great idea for Canon and would give them an instant large range of lenses for the new mirrorless camera, but I doubt they will bring this out for another year or so, so that the GX1 can get some runs on the board first.

Maybe they will bring out the mythical 4000K video camera?

The XXD bodies have come out every year like clockwork.  They are aimed at beginners who are seen as very sensitive to wanting the very latest model, even if the only difference is minor, they are often not into fussing over fine details.

There are always a few new things to play up in a new model.  They have to do it, because all the other players come out with a new model each year.

The 60D is kind of a oddball.  Canon downgraded the XXD series to create a differential with the 7D, and now, the XD and XXD are too close to each other.

I think Canon will raise prices to spread out the products, maybe $2K for a 7D MK III and $1400 for a 70D.  DSLR's are selling very well, so they likely think they can bump prices.  However, they have to stay competitive with Nikon.  Competition is good!

1) Why does everyone seem to forget that the XXXD are NOT the entry level DSLR - the T3 / 1100D is

2) It;s a little early for a new XXXD - T4i / 650D, they are usually closer to summer to build up hype for Xmas

3) It is a little early for a 70D unless the 60D were a dog in the market; it isn't

4) wouldn't it be lovely if Canon were to bring the rumored new line of bottom of the line FF camera, a $2K price breaker (call it a 55D, a 5D lite, whatever) to complement the 5D Mk III

Didn't I read in some earlier post (which I cannot seem to locate for reference) that the second DSLR to be announced by April would be another full frame body?
