More announcements coming
I’ve been told to expect two more announcements before Photokina begins in September. It’ll be a nice mix of DSLRs and lenses, as well as the usual PowerShot upgrades.
We expect 3 more DSLR announcements before the end of 2012, however only two of the three may come before Photokina. One of the cameras will be the full frame camera we’ve talked about before.
We still think a bunch of new lenses are coming down the pipeline from Canon. How many? By our count we hear at least 6 new lenses for the EF & EF-M mount before the end of 2012. Right now, we’re not sure how many before Photokina.
We were recently told that a new EF 100-400 f/4-5.6L IS was coming sooner than we originally thought.
All of this would leave us with a record year at Canon, with 6 new DSLRs and 13 new lenses.
We do not expect any other EOS M bodies before the end of 2012. I do expect a lens announcement or two to rekindle the hype around the system when it hits the streets in October.
