From NL
They received a comment that the xxD isn’t dead, it’ just resting. They’ll use the camera to give a longer time between the 7D and 7D Mark II.

Weekend Rumor Mill
Two comments came in saying not to expect the 1Ds Mark IV announcement until mid August.

Lenses
A lens announcement in the late spring as well as in August.  As usual, no word on lenses.

There will be a new 300 2.8 & 400 2.8 being tested at the World Cup and not yet for sale.

2011
A 5D Mark III will be coming as well as a new full frame camera below the 5D Mark III.

We will also see a new EF mount video camera system.

Site Design
I’ve had a new site design completed for about a week now and will be doing the switch on Sunday. So expect some minor downtime.

I’m also working to troubleshoot some back end issues that make the site unavailable every so often. The problem has been isolated.

  1. I don’t know why but, I could see the 60D with a full frame sensor, 12-15 Mp like the 5D mk1, cca. 6 FPS, and 25k ISO..

    before someone states how much of a dumbass I am.. think about it.. say it’s a improved 5D 12Mp sensor.. with nice ISO performance.. a few more AF sensors and 6 FPS.. now how nice would that be? the AF would not be as good as 7D, less MP, lower FPS buut it would be a heck of a lot better than the rebel..

    the only downside for canon would be the EF-S.. not selling? but hey.. the EF would go in kits like hell.. and they are quitesome more money than crop lenses..

    I would buy one for sure.. if not that.. the 5D mk3 :)

  2. Not likely. Well, I don’t know too much about marketing. But I guess, it’s not likely to have an FF body between the rebels and the 7D

  3. i didn’t say it was likely, just that i could see it.. it would be a re-wisited 5D with a few more FPS and higher iso/performance.. all the camera you would need with the iso performance due to FF.. but it is highly unlikely.. atleast untill 70D or 80D, then if canon keeps pushing the Mp like he does.. FF will be a MUST in the xxD series.. unless they still go with the 90D and then come up with a new series for the FF xxD sucessor.. most likely if i think about it.. :)
