New Canon 1-Series and 5D X Rumors

Canon 1 Series

All recent rumors point to 3 key cameras for Canon in 2013 – the 7D Mark II, 70D and Rebel T5i. The latest rumors on the Canon front, however, point to even further out into 2014.

The oft-rumored high-MP Canon DSLR seems to be trending toward a 2014 launch date instead of this year. Rumored sensor sizes are 40MP or better on a full frame chip for the EOS-1 series body.

Additional rumors point to a quicker-turnaround for the 5D Mark III than we saw in the last generation – perhaps as early as 2014. The 5D X  (or whatever the camera would be called) would likely see a marginal kick in specs as compared to the jump in performance we saw from the 5D Mark II to the 5D Mark III.

Canon 2013 DSLR, Mirrorless and Lens Roadmap: 7D Mark II, 70D, Rebel T5i and More…?

 

Canon 7D Mark II Rumors

Canon Rumors picked up on a juicy tip from a “very reliable source” with regard to Canon’s roadmap for 2013.

The key points?

3 New DSLRs: Two are entry-level and one is mid-level. The likely suspects are a Canon Rebel T5i and 70D filling the entry-level roles and a 7D Mark II (the original 7D is pushing 4 years old now) taking on the mid-level announcement. Some of the more recent rumors have put the 7D Mark II with a 24MP sensor and a February announcement date.

New EOS-M Mirrorless Camera: This has been rumored for quite some time and would almost certainly be an easy guess with a rumor/leak. The question is whether Canon has learned from the mistakes on the current EOS-M model and will deliver a successor that’s worth the effort.

4 New EF Lenses: Unknown which exact ones will debut this year, but the EF 100-400L IS lens is begging for a replacement.
