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

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.

    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

  2. Curaitis says

    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?

  4. Terje F says

    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….

  5. Mark says

    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.

  6. Dave Austin says

    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… ;-)

  7. pp says

    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.

  8. Daniel says

    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.
