The Canon EF 200-400mm f/4L IS USM lens with built-in 1.4x teleconverter has been a wildly popular topic over the past year, with virtually everyone who has used it giving the lens nothing but praise. For a $12,000 lens, it seems to get around quite a bit.
It really shouldn’t come as much surprise that Canon may be leaning toward other optical formulas that use a built-in teleconverter. [click to continue…]
Recent rumors suggest that the Canon EOS M2 will be announced at or just prior to CES 2014 in early January 2014. The camera is rumored to be slightly smaller than the original EOS M and feature an improved AF system. The EOS M2′s newly-leaked specs are below. [click to continue…]
New rumors of an upcoming Canon EOS 1 series model suggest that the camera will be announced around the same time as a Nikon D4X in 2014. The significance of this is so that Canon can avoid the debacle it encountered with the 1D X launch.
Recall, that the 1D X was announced in October 2011, but didn’t become available until summer 2012. Meanwhile, Nikon announced the D4 in January 2012 and started shipping units just a couple months later. [click to continue…]
Another update on the oft-rumored Canon 7D Mark II points to a release date sometime in the first half of 2014. Previous rumors pointed to a second quarter announcement for the camera, so this latest update remains consistent.
A couple of key new pieces of info point to a price point around $2000 and its positioning as a pro APS-C camera. Additionally, the 7D Mark II is rumored to feature a variation of a new AF system from an unannounced EOS 1 Series camera.

Rumors for the Canon EOS M successor continue to build for an early 2014 launch. Previously, the camera(s) was rumored to feature the 70D‘s 20.2MP APS-C sensor and the excellent Dual Pixel AF functionality.
It’s no real surprise to hear more on the EOS M2 since it has already showed up in Canon’s own DPP software. I wouldn’t be surprised to see the EOS M2 in early January at CES 2014.
That teaser we saw from Canon Korea last week looks to be a white KISS model, which is known to be the Rebel line in the US. In all likelihood, we are going to see a white Canon Rebel SL1 or T5i released instead of an all new DSLR. Additionally, this may be just an Asia thing and the US and rest of the world may not see the new version of the camera at all.
