Delays Abound?
« on: May 04, 2011, 10:22:54 AM »

I am receiving lots of information about delays with current products, as well as future products.


Below is what I am told is the delay in regards to manufacturing times of new current cameras



  • 1D Mark IV – 2-4 Months

  • 5D Mark II –  1-2 Months

  • 7D – 1-2 Month


New Camera Announcements

We have always been told the 1Ds replacement would be in 2012, now we are hearing the next 5D will also be 2012. [NL] alluded to that as well.


Current time frames for new cameras.



  • 1Ds Mark IV – Early 2012

  • 1D Mark V – Early 2012

  • 5D Mark III – Late 2011 – Mid 2012

  • 7D Mark II – Late 2012

  • 70D – Early 2013

  • T4i – Early 2012


This stuff will move around, but I reiterate there is a ton of uncertainty.


Lenses?

I’ve received nothing in regards to arrival of the announced lens, I’ll keep asking.

But without the next camera just around the corner i'll never be able to shoot great images tomorrow ;-)

Apart from being the latest peice of information, is this any more reliable than the previous one that said 5Dmk3 in June/July ?
I still long for Canon to keep releasing new toys though, and love the improved Dynamic Range rumours :-)

hi guys,

i have a very good friend of mine, working for sony, and very close to canon.
He told me a month ago, that because of this terrible and sad hearthquake in Japon, every thing will run late, saying that nothing very new will come before september, october, for a new product.

Manufactories have dammages, and the elctricity is cut several times in the day.
Not easy to product something overthere.

Hope my english is not to bad :-)

Take care.

....xxxxx

Five new dSLRs in 2012, including a refresh of every one of the single-digit bodies?  I think that would be a record, and coming on the heels of the current production woes, I'd be really surprised if they attempt that.  I bet we'll see a T4i in early 2012, a 1Ds IV in late 2012, and everything else pushed to 2013.

The person who floated this rumor should have quit before he/she got to the T4i. Somebody please tell me what the specs of a T4i could possibly be?

There is about a micro-millimeter difference between the T3i and the 60D as it is. Why would Canon go through the expense of developing and marketing a camera that would simply cannibalize sales from the other models without expanding the market one bit?

ah...I hope to see 5d mark III next month..because buying 5d 2 will surely waste the money. Come on Canon..next month will be a good time to launch 5d mark III. We've waited for too long  :-\w

The delay caused all prices inflated for camera (haven't checked on lens yet). 5DMII MSRP $2,499. on BH and Adorama $2699. 7D MSRP $1699, everywhere there is $1699 is out of stock, Adorama is still in stock but they sell it at $1800. Geez, bad time to buy a camera now eh.

The 60D is still using the 40D's AF system.  Three generations is long enough.  I suspect Canon will let the current xxD AF system roll down into the Rebel line, and the 70D will get a newer AF sensor (somewhere between the current xxD and the 7D).  Just my 2¢.

Canon's website does list $2499 as the estimated retail price.  However, the release pricing was $2699 (according to DPR), and that's now the current prices at most US retailers (the ones that have stock, at any rate).  The 24-105 kit was released at $3499, and that's what B&H and Adorama were charging until a few days ago when their prices dropped $100.

Yes selling at released price is over-price. I was looking to buy a 5DMII last year and it was $2499. Camera street price is always lower or at least equal to MSRP before the quake.

No new 7D, 5D, 1D in 2011? That would be really sad.

It will crush Canon sales and profit, when Nikon comes with a replacement for the D300s, D700 and perhaps D3 this year.

Nikon is rumored to be delaying new models as well. 

http://nikonrumors.com/2011/05/03/nikon-d800-delayed-till-october-2011-d4-in-early-2012.aspx

It is very difficult to bring a new model on-line when you can't even produce the existing models.

Things are bad all around, but Sony has a opening!

Nikon might be having the same trouble. They have made no announcements about a D400 or a D800 either. Both of those are due for an upgrade like Canon's line. I wouldn't be shocked if we didn't have any more announcments this year.

I'd be ok with a 2013 release for the xxD, that's about when I'll be in the market for one.
In landscape photography, when you shoot is more important than where.
