Official Canon Teaser

With Photokina 2014 just around the corner, the rumor mill is running full steam now. The latest rumors point to several new DSLR products due from Canon in early September just ahead of Photokina.

We’ve hear so much about a Canon 7D Mark II lately, and it continues to be in the rumor mill. Likewise, a replacement lens for the Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS lens is also expected. [Read more...]

Canon EF 100-400mm L Lens is Next Up for Replacement?

Canon 100-400mm Lens

The Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS lens has been rumored to be replaced for over quite some time now. One of the common complaints of the about the lens is the push-pull zoom design, which leads it to be regarded as a “dust sucker.” Additionally, the lens is rather slow at the long end of the zoom at f/5.6; however, that allows it to remain compact in spite of its long zoom range.

No More New Canon DSLRs or Lenses in 2013?

Canon 100-400mm L Lens

We had lots of hope for new cameras and lenses from Canon. Particularly, I have been looking forward to a replacement for the EF 100-400mm L lens. Recent rumors, however, suggest that Canon may not have anything left to pull out for 2013 in terms of EOS and EF lines.

There has been plenty of murmurs in recent months about a pair of new EOS M models due prior to PhotoPlus 2013. (The current EOS M is still in fire sale mode.) If the sources are to be believed, however, it could be rather quiet for Canon other than the recent introduction of the EOS 70D.

Canon 45mm & 90mm Tilt-Shift Lenses Coming Soon? EF 28-300mm & 100-400mm L Lenses Too?

Canon TS-E 45mm

Following up a previous rumor, there is more noise of a pair of new tilt-shift Canon lenses due in early 2014. The  current TS-E 45mm f/2.8 and TS-E 90mm F/2.8 are well-overdue replacement and should find similar updates as seen in the recent  Canon TS-E 17mm f/4L and TS-E 24mm f/3.5L II lenses. We could see an announcement later in 2013, but rumors suggest that they won’t be available until 2014. [Read more...]

Canon EF 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6L IS USM and EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM Replacements in the Works?

Canon 100-400mm

Canon has been feeling out certain users’ thoughts for replacements to the EF 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6L IS USM and EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM lenses. One of the common complaints of the two lenses is the push-pull zoom design, which leads them to be regarded as “dust suckers.” Additionally, the lenses are rather slow at the long end of the zoom at f/5.6; however, that allows them to remain compact in spite of their long zoom range.
