Pro Mirrorless Mentions and More

By Canon Rumors | November 9, 2015 | Canon DSLR Rumors

Keith over at Northlight received some suggestions of new products to expect in 2016.

Pro Level Mirrorless Camera (and more)

  • Expanding the EF-M system
  • First ConnectedCamera device
  • New technology sensor (APS-C)
  • Built in EEVF viewfinder
  • Pro level AF performance
  • Best in class video capability
  • Pro build quality with enhanced ergonomics
  • Wider support for the EF lens family

This won’t come until after the EOS M3 gets an update in early 2016.

There was also a mention of a new full frame camera being announced for Photokina, Perhaps the EOS 6D Mark II? We expect to see an EOS-1D X and EOS 5D Mark IV before the September 2016 show.

More to come…

Superzoom Development Mentioned Again [CR2]

Superzoom Development Mentioned Again [CR2]

By Canon Rumors | November 9, 2015 | Canon Lens Rumors

We’ve received another mention about the development of a new superzoom. We weren’t given the focal length & range of such a lens. We also weren’t told if this would be a direct replacement for the EF 28-300 f/3.5-5.6L IS.

We are wondering if this development is for the Cinema EOS line and not for the stills crowd. I have a hard time believing the EF 28-300 f/3.5-5.6L IS was every popular enough to warrant further R&D dollars for a new version.

On a side note, we’ve been receiving a lot of nonsense lately from a certain group of people, and a couple of other sites are having the same issue. We know who they are and are working to filter out the “rumors” they’re sending in. A few things in the last week or so that we have posted, has turned out to be from them.

Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 Replacement Ready? [CR1]

Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 Replacement Ready? [CR1]

By Canon Rumors | November 6, 2015 | Canon Lens Rumors

We’re told that the replacement for the 22 year old Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 is ready for production and could be announced any time within the next few months.

  • Ring-type USM
  • DOF scale will remain
  • Closer minimum focusing distance than the current lens
  • No IS

This is the first mention we’ve heard for this lens in a long time and it comes from an unknown origin, take it with the appropriate grain of salt.

More Mentions of EF-M Prime Lenses [CR1]

More Mentions of EF-M Prime Lenses [CR1]

By Canon Rumors | November 5, 2015 | Canon Lens Rumors

We’re told again that two new EF-M prime lenses will appear in the first quarter of of 2016.

  • EF-M 15mm f/2 STM
  • EF-M 35mm f/1.8 STM

While we’ve been told by multiple people that the EF-M 35mm f/1.8 STM was coming, this is the first mention of an EF-M 15mm f/2 STM. 

We speculate that we’ll see a macro for the EOS M system sooner than later.
