Ok so a little digging around from what the Canon execs are saying, I'm thinking there could very well be 2 SLR's Jan 24th. and 1 in August.

Especially since Pentax is certainly going to announce the K20D, Canon wants a shot at some some awards in 2008.

I just still think the 450D is to early, if it came out in the summer that would be a right time.

Of the three guesses, the 450D (or whatever it will be called) is almost certain to be announced. 5D Mk II will be announce in 2008 but no one here knows if it will be announced now or in the fall. 3D is still in the rumor stage.

Aye it is but that would be so cool, to have a 45 AF point eye controlled focus camera. Talk about industry shattering.

I don't buy the 3D/7D reports... 450D and 5DII don't seem that unlikely, though. Guess we'll see shortly...

According to tradition, 1dIIIn will be released mid of this year.
While I guess with a 3D as companion.

This the stuff I think Canon SHOULD announce in PMA and before the Olympics:

EOS-1D Mark IV with 307,000 pixels screen, approx. 14 mpx and 10 fps, with PERFECT AF
EOS-3D: 1D3 sensor, 8 fps, 1D II AF (with some tweaking), same screen as 1D4, 1D-like battery grip
EOS 7D: 5D successor, with the same sensor as the 1D4, AF from the 40D, and same 307k px screen
EOS 450D/DR XTx: Successor to the 400D/DR XTi with some nice additions

:D


EOS 5D Mark II | EF24-105 f/4L IS | EF100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS | EF200 f/2.8L II | 580EX | Manfrotto 055xProB + 808RC4, and 679B

EOS 450D is 6MP full frame and EOS 450Ds is 8.6MP full frame - bye bye to EF-S mount.
For PMA Show 2008.

EOS-3D is 12.8MP full frame with 6 fps, new 60-point AF eclispe and DiG!C III, Live View w/AF, 3.0" OLED screen and more. Basically a "preview" of advanced technology to come and the 3D serves as the testbed, just as it did on the 5D (Picture Styles, low noise and 2.5-inch LCD). In time for Photokina 2008 in September.

I don't see an entry level DLSR going below 10MP's no less dropping to 6MP's. The entry level consumer sees MP's before anything else.

I think an entry-level FF (or xxD FF) is right around the corner.
Probably won't be released this February, but it wouldn't at all surprise me if a sub $1500 USD street priced FF camera is released within the next 9-12 months.
Think FF 40D/50D for a couple hundred dollars more (to cover the increase in CMOS cost).

Additionally, remember that Canon's new CMOS sensor factory is opening soon. This should allow them to drastically increase both CMOS quantity AND quality.


5D4 | 5D3 | 16-35 f4 IS | 24-105 f4 IS | 70-200 f4 IS | 100-400 II | Sigma 20 f/1.4 ART | Sigma 35 f/1.4 ART | EF 1.4x III | EF 2x II | 430EX II |
