3 Lenses for Photokina, but...[CR2]
« on: July 27, 2010, 01:52:34 PM »

…. another soon after?

I’m told we can expect 3 new lenses to be shown off at the Canon EXPO and Photokina.
Canon lauched 3 lenses with the 7D last year, so it’s not unprecedented.


A 4th lens would be announced in the November/December timeframe with a “new camera body”.


Sadly, no confirmation on which lenses will arrive.

Canon Expo is September 2-3
Photokina is September 21-26

Should be a big month.

Why not buy a used 40D now and keep it as a second body when the 60D surfaces? The decline in 40D values has slowed at this point, I would guess, and you would have the latest (greatest?).  How will you feel if you find that the 60D comes out 3 months later and is a stunner? The used 50D prices will plummet at that point, right?

I feel your pain.  This has been a real grind....

I sincerely hope the 5D mk3, 24-70 /2.8 IS and 35 /1.4 II would come out.
I would buy them all 3 at once.
Then I would be complete with my 70-200 which i would prefer to use on FF instead of crop.

Back to "quality" rumour reporting I see.  Oh well, every click on the main site counts so why not post all those made up "rumours".  The qquality difference between say "photorumours" and "canonrumors" is growing by the day.

24-70 2.8 IS L
60 2.8 IS
35mm 1.4 II L

Similar to my guess, but I'll replace the 35 f/1.4L with 14-24 f/2.8L. These should go nicely with the 60D.

Couple of months later, we should see a cheap EF-S 35 f/1.8 lens (hopefully with ring USM... please please) announced together with an EVIL camera. Canon's biggest competitors Nikon and Sony already have something in this department and I'll be most surprised if Canon does not join the party soon.

I'd suggest a 7D. No risk of buyer's remorse there.

Such guesses have already been made on this site based on the dates and rates at which Canon released lenses over the past 10 years - 4-5 lenses a year, usually at Feb & Sep, and this year only 1 lens announced at January. Connect the three items, and - Voila! - extrapolate that Canon is to announce three more lenses in September, say in Photokina.

It's a sad state of affairs that it's so easy to produce CR2 level rumors.

Good point. Challenge is to get all three lens predictions correct. ;)

My guesses for September, in order of likelyhood (this should all be pretty obvious by now):

 - 60D
 - 60mm f/2.8 IS macro

Sometime either in September or later in the fall:

 - 24-70L f/2.8 IS
 - 35L II
 - 1DsIV
 - 14-24L f/2.8

Wishful thinking:

 - 135L IS
 - 200L IS
 - other fast primes or a prime-replacing f/2 zoom

Only a moron would use 14-24 on a crop body.  ;)
