New Product Announcement Invites for July 23, 2012
« on: July 10, 2012, 08:05:58 AM »
From the Czech Republic
Invites for the July 23, 2012 product announcement date seem to be making their way around to folks.

It’s suspected this is when we will see the announcement of Canon’s first mirrorless interchangeable lens camera. We may finally get the official announcement for the EF 200-400 f/4L IS 1.4x lens as well.

I am excited to see what Canon's mirrorless camera will bring but I doubt I will be buying in.  I'm happy with my SLR, compacts and iPhone systems.

If Canon managed to introduce real alternatives to cameras as the Fuji X-Pro 1 I'd be on board. But alas...

Something close to the fuji system would be awesome. The x100 and pro-x1 are intriguing cameras. However, and correct me if I'm wrong, I don't think the g1X sensor is up to those standards and I don't think we'll see a new sensor with the mirror less.

C'mon Canon. Still hoping for aps-c.
I enjoy taking pictures!!!

I'm ready to see what the 60d and or 7d replacement will be.  I like the crop sensor to reach wildlife and bird shots and I am ready to upgrade to the latest and greatest crop sensor camera (replacement for a 40d).  I will then be set to go for a while as I recently added a 5d Mark III as well.
5d Mark III, 24mm f/1.4L II, 24-105 f/4L IS, 70-200 f/2.8L IS II, 100 f/2.8L IS macro, 135 f/2L, 3x 600EX-RT, ST-E3-RT, EF 1.4x III

APS-C is the minimum, but something like the Leica M9 would be amazing!

C'mon Canon. Give us a full frame mirrorless or go home.

Good - lets get another one out the way so that the Low cost FF rumours can start again.
The 650D looks to rock and is pushing the 60D and the 7D out to pasture - there are lots of great new SLR's to come.
Canon 60D, 24-105, 50 F1.8. 430EX II.
Sigma 10-20, 70 F2.8, 70-300. Studio.
Giotto tripod, Hoya filters.

...is pushing the 7D out to pasture

No. 60D perhaps, it matches most features of the 60D but not the 7D. It's still vastly superior.
Canon 5D Mark III w/BG-E11, Canon 7D w/BG-E7: EF 24-70mm f.2.8L, EF 70-200mm f2.8L IS II, EF 40mm f2.8 Pancake STM, Speedlite 430EXII + 430EXI, Canon EOS 3

The 7D firmware upgrade is supposed to come in August. My guess is that the 7D will be around for another year. At least I hope so. I just bought a refurbished 7D from Canon Direct for $1087. The shutter release on my 40D is becoming increasingly erratic.

Most folks are curmudgeons until they actual use the thing they gripe about.
