1Ds Mark IV & Lenses [CR2]

About time someone spoke up
A CR regular has piped up about the massive announcement of new gear coming from Canon.

I’m told to expect 2 separate announcements, one for the prosumer market and one for the pro market.

Announcement 1

  • 60D Type of camera, it could be called something else.
  • The EF-S 60mm Macro will receive IS.
  • There is a “murmur” that a new 70-300 type of lens could also be announced.
  • This will be the first announcement.

Announcement 2

  • The 1Ds Mark IV will be announced
  • EF 24-70 f/2.8L IS will be announced
  • A new f/4 wide angle with IS
  • A new L prime, unknown as to which will get replaced. The 35mm isn’t a guarantee.
  • A new Flash
  • New accessories
  • This will be the 2nd announcement and the big news for Photokina

The source says amendments could be made over the next few weeks, so keep checking back.

May Announcements? [CR1]

New Stuff in May?

Received an email today saying Canon will make some minor product announcements in the May/June timeframe.

By minor, I’d assume a PowerShot or 2 and the new remotes we were told about earlier in the week.

The only PowerShot I’ve heard anything about has been a replacement of the D10.

I think major announcements will be saved for closer to Photokina in September. There’s going to be some great stuff.

A new remote(s) for Hybrid DSLRs is apparently going to be available this summer.

It’s definitely a needed accessory for a lot of folks.
