Updated Canon 2016 Roadmap

Updated Canon 2016 Roadmap

By Canon Rumors | June 10, 2016 | Canon DSLR Rumors

There has been a lot of new information come out in the last few months about what we can expect from Canon in 2016. I’m just going to give a round-up of what to expect for the folks that missed some things, or are new here (yes, we do get new readers).

EOS DSLR Bodies for 2016:

  • Canon EOS  5D Mark IV (confirmed)
    No other DSLRs are expected from Canon in 2016. We expect the announcement in August, with delivery coming soon after Photokina.

EF Lenses for 2016:

  • Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L III USM (confirmed)
    We expect to see this lens announced some time this month. It looks like the announcement has been moved closer to Photokina.
  • Canon EF 70-300 f/4-5.6 IS II USM (confirmed)
    We expect to see this announced before Photokina in September.
  • Canon EF 24-105 f/4L IS II USM (confirmed)
    We expect to see this announced alongside the EOS 5D Mark IV in August.

EOS M Bodies for 2016:

  • A “prosumer” EOS M body (confirmed)
    We think we’ll get a new APS-C “prosumer” EOS M body some time before the end of 2016.

EOS M Lenses for 2016:

  • Unknown at this time

Cinema EOS Bodies for 2016:

  • Canon Cinema EOS C700 (confirmed)
    We should see this announced the first few days of September.

Cinema EOS Lenses for 2016:

  • Anamorphic Lenses
    We think you’ll see at least one anamorphic lens announced with the Cinema EOS C700
New EF 24-105 f/4L IS Replacement Coming With 5D Mark IV [CR3]

New EF 24-105 f/4L IS Replacement Coming With 5D Mark IV [CR3]

By Canon Rumors | June 9, 2016 | Canon Lens Rumors

We reported yesterday that a new kit lens was coming with the EOS 5D Mark IV in August.

We have confirmed that the kit lens will indeed be an update for the EF 24-105 f/4L IS, which makes a lot more sense for a camera such as the EOS 5D Mark IV.

We have been unable to confirm if the new L lens will support the Power Zoom PZ-E1.

To re-iterate, yesterdays report of a Non L kit lens coming with the EOS 5D Mark IV was incorrect and it will indeed be an L.

We’re told that a new kit lens will be coming with the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV in August. It will basically be a full frame version of the EF-S 18-135 f/3.5-5.6 IS USM (nano USM) and will likely be compatible with the Power Zoom Adaptor PZ-E1. The lens may have appeared in a post from earlier today.

We don’t know the focal length at the moment, but we should find out soon.

More to come…

*UPDATE*

The new kit lens will in fact be an L lens with IS, likely a replacement for the EF 24-105 f/4L IS.

First EOS 5D Mark IV Leak?

*UPDATE 2*

The instagram post has been removed.

We’re also pretty confident that the lens on the camera is a replacement for the EF 24-105 f/4L IS.

*UPDATE*

Here’s the reported “leak” of the EOS 5D Mark IV as claimed by Levi Siver. I’m not sure about this one, as I think we’re still a bit early for the “official” leaks that we saw with the EOS 5D Mark III launch.

IA forum member pointed out the lens hood of the attached lens and that they couldn’t identify it. We do know the soon-to-be-announced EF 16-35mm f/2.8L III has a new lens hood, the EW-88D.

*Original Post*

I’m currently on a game drive in northern Uganda, but I figure is pass on what is claimed to be the first picture leak of the upcoming EOS 5D Mark IV.

You can read about it at EOSHD.

We know the EOS 5D Mark IV will be announced in August, with delivery coming soon after.

I have a few things about the camera that I’ll be publishing soon.

Patent: Canon EF 1000mm f/5.6 IS DO

Patent: Canon EF 1000mm f/5.6 IS DO

By Canon Rumors | June 6, 2016 | Canon Business General

Howabout a 1000mm replacement for the EF 800mm f/5.6L IS? A patent showing the optical formula for an EF 1000mm f/5.6 IS DO has appeared.

We’ve seen the prototype for a future EF 600mm f/4 IS DO BR already, and the likelihood of seeing more DO lenses I think is pretty high. A 1000mm lens would be a great replacement for the current 800mm lens.
