The Canon Rebel T5i was just announced alongside the new, smaller Canon Rebel SL1. The Rebel T5i sticks with an 18MP APS-C CMOS sensor, which Canon seems to be pretty happy with over the past several generations of Rebel DSLRs. [Read more...]
Canon should be announcing a pair of new entry-level DSLRs, a new 18-55mm kit lens with the new STM motor and several point and shoot cameras later tonight. Stay tuned for full press releases, specs and product photos around midnight or so tonight.
For right now, the complete list of new Canon gear is below. [Read more...]
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 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.
