Seems to me we are usually buzzing about these next updates. Nothing, Zilch, nada with the 1Dx2 and 5D4 updates. Just same ol stuff in rumor sections. Wth is going on with Canon??

Hoping something awesome is in the works....While we are all waiting....the Nikon camp seems to be having no complaints

Is there going to be a 5D4 after Canon released two 50 megapixel cameras?

Rumors should be starting soon I would think since Photokina 2016 is 20-25 September, 2016. That is one of the biggest shows at which manufacturers show off new products.

Yes. The two 50 megapixel cameras are specialist cameras for studio and landscape work. The 5D4 (or whatever they call it) will be the next gen wedding/event camera for working pros and high end hobbyists.

I have been reading bits and pieces but since it was delayed I was wondering. I guess storage is cheap and you can get a system that can handle those files easily but I'm not sure I'd want to shoot a wedding with that.

The next body I want from Canon is the 1DMKIV on steroids ;-)a


When you see my camera gear you'll think I'm a pro.
When you see my photos you'll know that I'm not.

why not a 1DX then?


i don't think canon is going to come out with anything ground breaking...it'll be a slightly improved sensor for high ISO, better AF, probably more MP, and a touch more DR...the previous models will be 90% of the new models, yet everyone will flock to the better newer stuff...and 5DIII will be sold on the used market for $1,200 :)

I have been reading the 1DX II is supposed to have brand new AF system.

Hrm,

Sleeping giants rarely need to let anyone know what they're doing... they know, we are watching and waiting.

I'm very interested to see the new releases over the next few years. The past few releases have been ok, but nothing that made me jump out of my seat and work some overtime.

I'm interested to see:

The next 70D.... or 80D? The all around generalist camera that isn't super expensive, with excellent (for dSLR) video abilities, resolution, ISO, bells & whistles, etc. Basically if the 80D is the 70D with a few minor tweaks and fixes that plague the current 70D body, that would be a very interesting camera especially after it hits Canon refurb sales (for example the 70D was $599 with a lens on Canon refurb.... what the heck? $500 basically, I'm a total tight wad and I would buy that, but I'm waiting, because I don't like how the 70D handles bounced flash and I use a lot of lighting, plus other weird stuff, just waiting to see the matured design in the 80D).

6D2. The 6D is already a very nice full frame camera for someone who doesn't need other features, just a great sensor, no bells really, all camera. However, as nice as the 6D is, the A7S and some other releases have just totally overshadowed the 6D for my interests. My only allure to another full frame other than the one I'm currently shooting, is to have significant gains in high ISO and dynamic range, as I don't need anything else from a full frame and prefer APS-C for the day to day that I do. The A7S has my attention the most. If the 6D2 can stay in the niche of being a low light full frame, if they can some how compete in this area, Canon might keep me in the full frame market. Otherwise, eventually an A7S will be in my kit, adapted to some Canon lenses. I'm ok with that. Not sure Canon will be able to do this though, I don't think they even really want to compete with something like the A7S as it's already a niche camera anyways. But it's the niche I have the most interest in, from a full frame perspective.

Mirrorless options. I already have the EOS-M. And I already like where the EOS-M3 is going and it's price. But I'm waiting to see what Canon drops later on, that is mirrorless, be it full frame, or another APS-C. I'm happy with it in general right now. I'd be totally happy with it if they could just speed up focus and make it snappier. The M3 already does that. But I'd like to see it go to the point of having a little EVF built in, even if it means making it a tiny bit bigger, to avoid an external EVF (I hate that thing on the M3, looks weird, makes it awkward, and defeats the point of it's size for me). So an M4 or a totally new camera, with a built in EVF, taking that glorious little 22F2 pancake, would keep me in their line. Otherwise, eventually, I may just pick up a Fuji once a used one hits the range of price I'm willing to buy it at. I'm only interested in small mirrorless for pancake lens uses, for compact, walk around, general stuff. A big full frame mirrorless doesn't matter to me at all (and again, the only niche camera in this category I care about is the A7S right now anyways).

Features I want, well, I want all the cameras from any series range to have the option to turn off the AA filter. Pentax has this. Nikon is starting to put it on their upper models. Canon is only putting it on their upper models. It should be on every model frankly. Would like to see Auto ISO with EC as an option on more bodies. MFA of course on all of them too.

I have no interest in the next 5D or 1D series releases, other than them making previous 5D and 1D series even cheaper to buy 2nd hand. I currently shoot 5D & two different 1D series, and like them. But they're not my bread and butter every day and they're still good so I don't need replacements right now.

Very best,

i'd say for sure an 80D is coming as well...that seems like a lot of cameras in one year...but they all are due for updates, but i wonder if they'll actually all come out this year...
