A New 100-400 & Coming Announcements [CR2]
« on: July 25, 2012, 06:58:07 AM »

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.


Bodies

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.


Lenses

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.


EOS M

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.

A new 100-400 would be appriciated, but I still think the 200-400 will start shipping before the announcement!

I'll be interested (as will a lot of you!) in a new 100-400, as I've been waiting a few years for it. That will round out my collection (8-15, 16-35, 24-105, 70-200, 100-400).

I hope they don't put much plastic in it and raise the price too much (unlikely). Looking for

  • new IS
  • updated optics
  • Get rid of push pull?
  • new expensive price, gah

great news if true. sold my not quite sharp enough 100-400L a few years ago, getting by w/a 70-300 IS.....can't wait to see this one, even if it means running up some debt to get into the lens arsenal.... :)

I hope for a new 300 f/4 or 400f/5.6 but i doubt if the 100-400 f/4-5.6 is as good and sharp as the 70-300 f/4-5.6 !

I have been waiting for a long time for a 100-400 II ... f/4.0-5.6, with 4EV IS, regular zoom rather than push pull, and further improved image quality on the long end ... say, same as 70-300L @300mm ... at 400mm and a pricetag of not 2k €/USD.

current model is scarcely available worldwide and price has been steadily picking up over the last two months
I bet my 2 cents that an announcment is not very far. With IS it will be above 2k

Yeah, I think the new 100-400 is going to be the replacement for both the old 100-400 and the 400 f/5.6, as CR mentioned as much a while back.

Either way, updates to the non-f/2.8 300mm and 400mm lenses would probably put them more in the $2000-2500 retail space, which kind of kills their market anyway. Seems like the just over $1000 L lens marketplace is gonna be disappearing over the next few years

Care to name the 6 lenses you've heard mentioned?  Does this include the 200-400mm f/4 that was previously mentioned as 'in devolopment' and is currently in use in very limited quantities at the top sporting events.  I'm guessing the 100-400mm replacement is also included in that number, what are the other 4?

i'm guessing the 24-70 II , the 24 f/2.8, the 28 f/2.8 and the 500 and 600 mm?

Sounds like new math to me.  Seems like we're counting lenses when they're announced as 'being in development', counting them when they're officially announced, counting them when they're supposed to be released but are delayed, and also counting them when they actually hit the streets.  For some recent lenses, that means counting them in three successive years!
EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses
