Announcements Before Photokina
« on: September 05, 2012, 08:22:09 AM »
Next Week
Canon will be announcing new product next week in the lead up to Photokina. A few people have received invites to various press conferences around the globe.

So what can we expect to be announced?

Printers
At least two new “pro” Pixma printers. These will be direct replacements for the Pixma 9000 Mark II & Pixma 9500 Mark II. They’ll be be a smaller Pixma Pro-1, one with dye and the other with pigment.

There will be no 17″ Pixma printer announced this go around, but there are murmurs we will finally see one in the near future.

PowerShot
More PowerShot announcements are expected, a G12 replacement I’m told is likely, as well as a new fast lens PowerShot. 

EOS Body
There is next to no talk about a new EOS body for Photokina. The next camera will be a smaller full frame camera, when is still the question.

Lenses
There has been talk of a new 400 f/5.6L being announced and not much else. I’ve had one other suggestion that a new couple of lenses for the EOS-M system could also be announced. A macro maybe?

I was really looking forward to Photokina this year but it seems pretty clear now that there will be nothing on the EOS front so not really interested now. Have to admit though there is still a little bit of me really want’s Canon to come out with a surprise….. you never know…. Naw who am I kidding…… well maybe   :o :-\ >:( :'(

So that's not even a [CR] but a fact? I guess Canon will wait for the Nikon 600d or the 5d3 sales stalling, which might be a while. And if there's no new crop camera on the horizon that confirms that Canon cannot do any better sensor-wise than the current 18mp model, or only boost the mp with massive dr/iso tradeoffs.

that's really disappointing, I was hoping for something more than P&S and printers. 


Their midrange SLR range is starting to get tired and old with both the 60D and 7D badly needing replacing. I thought Photokina would have been the perfect platform to have launched something new and fresh to hit back at Nikon after their recent releases.


Oh well, I guess we'll just have to wait.  Again.

I couldn't have agreed more.

Thats depressing. No new EOS FF until when ? I thought the 3D should be announced? What happened to the 6D in October?

How do they badly need replacing? An update with better AF in both (and AFMA back in the 60D) would be nice, as well as an extra ISO stop, but, they are both perfectly fine cameras. Neither is crushed by their Nikon equivalent, or other competitors for that matter, and both are much better than a mirrorless alternative.

I think one thing people are forgetting is that for a year after a body is released, its price is very high...like, 50% higher than they sell for right now. Do you really believe the new 7D is going to be worth $17-1800+ for the body when the current one can be had for $1100?

If a new full frame isn't a very good possibility of being announced then I suppose a 5D2 is in my near future. I was kinda hoping a new EOS body would show and perhaps drop the prices a bit on 5d3 and 5d2.

Very disappointing given all of the talk about new DSLR cameras in the previous months.

On another front I just looked at the Canon USA site and saw the MSRP for the 7D dropped to $1599 from $1699.

so you prefer not to have any new stuff... i see.   ;D

i have 2000 euro waiting for a new backup FF body.
no way i buy another 5D MK2 and the 5D MK3 is to expensiv for a backup body.

So you too wanted something better than the 5D2 but cheaper than a 5D3?
