Canon 50D Photos With 18-200mm IS Kit Lens

in Canon,News

UPDATE: The Canon 50D has been announced on August 26, 2008. Please see Photography Bay’s Canon 50D Reviews and Resources page and Canon 50D Official Announcement page for more.

You can pre-order the Canon 50D now from via the following links:

The Canon 50D has been revealed with an EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS kit lens option. The image to the left is an official image from Canon, which appeared on this page [Update: Now password protected] from Canon Japan a third party site.

[Update: As some readers have pointed out, the location of the Canon 50D page is not on an official Canon site, nor is it Japanese - the language is Chinese. It looks like it could be a developer for Canon. I am also of the opinion that this page is related to the leak on the official site a couple days ago. I think we will see an announcement on Aug. 25th or 26th to confirm the leaks/rumors.]

Below you will find more official images of the Canon 50D. And, for those of you concerned about excessive noise in a 15.1 megapixel sensor, there’s an ISO 1600 sample image below as well.

For more info regarding the specifications and announcement news (when it comes) stay tuned to Photography Bay’s Canon 50D page.

Correction. The link is not Canon Japan but Canon China

The japaneese site seem to be a bit full of errorlinks…this might be a fake site…

3 bill August 24, 2008 at 12:12 pm is not a canon site. Just because someone puts “canon” in the name it does not make it an official site whether in Japan or China or anywhere else.

Thank you for information!

Looks good, but it is indeed not the Canon Japan (nor China) page. These pages are subdomains under the domain. Which probably means they have nothing to do with the real Canon website.

You can see the ORIGINAL Canon China pages yourself just by searching google. While those pages are now hosted on some third-party server, it looks like they were ripped directly from Canon.

Google: 50d

It is a fake.

The site is registrated for
Dog Creative Inc.
Postal Address Taito-ku
6-30-6 Higashi-ueno
Watanabe Building 2F

But not bad for a fake.

The metadata on the sample picture seems to suggest it was taken with a 50D. Why would someone fake this?

9 Terje F August 25, 2008 at 3:23 am

Well, I just baught a 40D, and I must say I cant find anything new on these pictures…
I guess these are hoax, you photoshop’d a 40D and change 4 to 5….

The 50D is real…I’ve seen it here in Hawaii being used by Canon Reps…if you think that the 50D is a fake then simply go back to the frig and get another gallon of icecream and pork out. I love it when know-nothing dweebs make such statements as though they are fact.

Checked the meta-data of this sample pic after downloading. Indeed states image was taken through a EF 600mm lens with a camera the Canon 50D, whatever that is… ;-)

and its so difficult to edit exif data these days and nearly impossible to photoshop images. the leaked specs look really crap, not even close to nikons – ill keep my 40d till the 5d mk3 comes out.

13 Bill August 25, 2008 at 3:31 pm

This is all fake nonsense – like Mark’s intelligence. Mark – you are an idiot.

14 Daniel August 26, 2008 at 12:33 am

If its real than Canon is cheap to use the same 40D body to save money. If so it better be a $1200 or so 50D camera like the 40D current price. I think its fake cause the 50D would have some if all buttons rearranged on the same 40D body just to make it look new and the new internals. But if they want to go for the all out battle vs. Nikon. It would be a slightly shaved 40D body, weight less, buttons rearranged, and newer look.

50D was true, just announce by Canon
