Received word today that Canon has 2 lenses planned for announcement on January 3, 2012. That’s a week before CES.
The 35 f/1.4L II and the 24-70 f/2.8L II are both mentioned. The source claims there is no IS in the 24-70.
The source has been right about lenses in the past, but I’ll keep it at [CR2] until I hear from others.
CES (& PMA) is Coming!
The Consumer & Electronics Show takes place in Las Vegas between January 10 – January 13, 2012. This is the first year that PMA will be combined with CES for a full consumer electronics experience.
I’ll be there for a few days to bring the Canon perspective from the show. I’m sure the 1D X and C300 will be front and center. If there is a product announcement before CES, it would probably be in the January 3 – January 5 time period. Canon has previously announced lenses as well as cameras the week before CES.
I hope to get a few interviews set up, if there’s anyone brave enough to talk to me. The ideal interview? a few minutes with Chuck Westfall… real or fake.
CES is obviously a well covered event. However, if there’s something you specifically want covered. Please make a comment in the forum thread associated with this post and I will try to accomodate.
The entry level A series cameras will be replaced at CES.
A new product line will be launched, however it won’t resemble the TX1/SX1. It’s still unclear what it will be. Everything seems to be under tight lock and key. It’s said to be a consumer product.
No SLR or lenses for CES.
Anything new coming?
I’ve heard Canon will introduce a new product line at CES, it may only consist of one product to start.
It will not be a PowerShot, nor an EVIL (Mirrorless) camera system.
I’ve been told to think along the lines of the TX1 and SX1 but with some crazy framerates and perhaps a larger sensor.
Do not expect any lenses or S.L.R.’s to be announced. Just consumer stuff this go around.
More to come soon.
I received some vague information that Canon will announce something beyond point and shoots for CES, which runs from January 6 – January 9 in Las Vegas.
It is a camera of some kind, no word on exactly what.
I have been told there will be no lenses announced with the product.
I hope to have more information soon, and I expect I will.
