There are going to be some more gear announcements heading into Photokina 2012 in Germany. I have heard between 10-13 lenses will be announced in 2012 from Canon. No word if that includes any lenses for the predicted mirrorless camera.

How many of those would be cine lenses, upgrades a-la the new 18-55mm IS (read: make the lens cheaper to make), or cause a sticker shock?

I've waited for the EF 8-15mm to come out since it was announced, planning to upgrade my 15mm f/2.8. The price cause me a sticker shock, so I waited for it to come down. Last month I gave up on that, and bought a Sigma 8mm f/3.5

Yes, I've read here that the Yen is strong. My salary is neither paid in Yens nor is linked to the Yen, and the raises I've got hardly compensate for the local inflation rate. If Canon doesn't take that into account when pricing it's new lenses, I'll keep on buying Sigma & Samyang.

[Taking local taxes and currency exchange rates into account, Sigma & Samyang lenses cost the same as in the U.S., while Canon lenses are up to 25% more expensive. Even parallel / gray import are often >5% more expensive here than in the U.S.]

Just add in at least once thing with the new 100-400mm design and I'll be a happy camper:

Weather-sealing! ;D

This lens will be a best seller, with weather sealing, new optical formula, better IS, F/4 max aperture, inner zoom once its price will drop a little bit ;)

Any updates on the ship date of the 1DX?
I posted a topic about that a while ago. Seems to be correct because I have been invited to a sneak demo next Tuesday... ;D

I was in the market for a T3i and now i see a T4i is on the way. I just can't stop checking Canon rumors and the FB page of CR.
Can't wait to reed about some T4i possible specs. I just hope the T4i commes befor the summer.

@gene_can_sing: Do you haw any proof of not true 1080p video claim? or some links to reviews? I'm curious cous i'm interested in video.

I'm allso interested in the comparison of lens mounts EF- EF-s and whats all out ther (ok now you know in new to photography) and what are the adwantages of one vs the other?
Are ther any good articles out ther?

So you want to have a lens which is 100 more in reach than the 200-400, and has the same max aperture of F4.
What do you think the price of such a lens would be, if the 200-400 is already USD11.000?

I never said that... The actual 100-400 has a f/4.5 max aperture, the next one apparently will have a f/4 max aperture. i didn't talk about constant f/4 aperture ;)

EF 100-400 f/4-5.6L IS II (the current version starts at f/4.5)

Then this wouldn't be a Mark II version...
EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses

excuse my english ...
i sold my t2i before the 5dmarkIII was announced  hoping for a drop on the 7d price, which didn´t happend. Only the price of the 5dmark II went down, i could get 5dmarkii but i just buy the tokina 11-16mm which is useless in that camera. Now i don't know what to do, get the 7d or wait a little longer and see if the price of the 7d drops or canon announce the 7d mark ii.  :/

I'd guess its more likely the 7D's used rather than new price will drop in the near future with users upgrading to a 5D mk3 with improved AF and FPS. If the 650D or 70D were annouced with a new sensor that could perhaps lead to a 7D price drop.

I'd love a standard zoom that zooms internally like the 70-200. You could really weather seal that sucker! Something like a 24-105 would be great, although it would almost certainly end up being larger/longer than the current one. For that kind of great weather sealing, I'll take it.

For what it is worth, when I read the title of this message, my first thought was: "Yep, a general breakdown is probably what's next all right..."

meh, the only think that excites me on that list is the 35L, which could stand to be a little sharper wide open and some weather sealing.  I've been holding off on getting this lens in hopes of an upgrade this year.

The 5D3 is the first Canon DSLR in a while that didn't appear with a new lens. I expected the 35/1.4L II and/or the 100-400/4-5.6L to be released with it.
