New Canon EF-S Lens Rumored for First Half of 2013

Canon Rumors has info that Canon will bring some new EF-S lenses for its APS-C format cameras during the first half 0f 2013 to go along with the rumored Canon 7D Mark II.

Rumored lenses include an EF-S zoom fisheye lens, as well as a new macro IS lens. As noted by CR, the EF-S 18-200mm IS lens is due for a replacement and would be a logical choice to get Canon’s new STM focus motor to play nice with video AF on entry-level DSLRs like the Canon Rebel T4i and its eventual successor.

Hasselblad has unveiled plans to launch a high-end mirrorless camera with a Sony E-mount.  Dubbed the “Lunar”, the camera will sport a 24.3MP APS-C sensor and capture full HD video.

The Hasselblad Lunar appears to be a rebadged Sony NEX-7 with lots of Hasselblad fluff on the outside.  The body and grip of the Lunar will feature carbon fiber, titanium, wood, leather and precious metals, including gold, to help drive up the price to around €5000 (no word yet on US pricing).

The Hasselblad Lunar should arrive in the first quarter of 2013.
