Nikon Rumors is reporting that Nikon could release four new DSLRs before the end of the year. (Sound familiar?)
Likely candidates are a D400 (Equivalent to the 7DII); the D600 (Low-Cost Full Frame); the equivalent to the 60D/70D and an entry-level Rebel equivalent.

So, that would seem to make the four Canon DSLRs before the end of the year plausible.

At least three of the rumored Nikon DSLRS are directly equivalent to existing or rumored Canon products (60D, 7D and mythical full frame entry level) I think Canon might be done with Rebels for the year, so it's possible that a fourth camera could be a 5DHD (High Definition).

Of course, I was most heartened by the published D600 specifications and rumor that it could be released around Photokina. I don't see Canon allowing Nikon to have the flagship APS-C market to itself, so if the D600 materializes, I expect the 7DII to follow shortly thereafter.

D400 and D600 seem to be almost sure by now. I expect them to be announced during the summer, and presented at the Photokina.

I don't know if there will be anything below the D3200 - whose price is likely to drop significantly. The other 2 missing APS-C by Nikon should be the D5200 and the D7100.

I don't necessarily agree. I usually give Brian's opinion a lot of cred. While he may not have the insider stuff a company exec does, he also doesn't have to shovel any BS at me. Seems like it evens out to me.

Like it is said, opinions are like tailbones -- everyone has one, and some of us show them off more than others.



And for what it's worth, your opinion on the positioning of the 1DX is a whole lot less valuable than any comment from a Canon exec.
You're offended? Oh, really! Life IS offense -- get used to it.

Okay Canon Rumors Guy, time to be straight up with folks.

I assume the CR2 portion of the rumor is that there will be up to four new DSLR bodies announced in 2012.
 

No, but we can CR3 that it's a CR2 rumor.  Where is the ef 20mm f2.8L f1.8L??

Well this is a quote from Canon's press release for the 1DX:
"As the new leader in Canon’s arsenal of professional DSLRs, the EOS-1D X will be a high-speed multimedia juggernaut replacing both the EOS-1Ds Mark III and EOS-1D Mark IV models in Canon’s lineup."

Need any more be said?

one thing that could be said is that an official press release saying that an 18 replaces a 16 and a 21 doesn't necessarily change the opinions of, or how these respective cameras are viewed,  by those who use them professionally. 

Another thing that could be said is that press releases like this are designed to sell products and to optimally frame the company's acheivements to date versus the compromises they have made.

Still another thing that could be said is that the release is absent any meaningful reference to how Canons long standing tradition or legacy/whatever intends to address those distance constrained situations where getting more pixels on the image is paramount.

I love it - I say what my 'opinion' is - and I get accused of stating it as fact

I ask a simple question and I get quoted the Canon marketing release - so obviously no opinion there then.

dilbert, what's the deal?  You don't know any more for fact that anyone else on this forum.  Afterall, did you not notice the word "rumors" in the website title?  I enjoy opinions personally.  If you want just cold hard facts, you're in the wrong place.

Now what I'm really curious to see is the 1D body they mention.  Or will it not be a 1D, maybe a 3D?  Who knows.
