It’s shaping up to be quite a year at Photokina in Germany, with Leica, Sigma and now Canon all expected to drop some serious equipment at the expo. The Canon news comes by way of Canon Rumors, who got wind from a known source that both the 7D Mark II (or whatever the replacement will be called) and a new telephoto lens will both officially arrive in September.
Regarding the camera, we’ve heard enough interesting bits to keep us entertained until the bigger leaks start happening a few days (or sometimes hours) ahead of the release. The lens, on the other hand, we have no info about. CR says people are ‘hoping’ it will be a replacement for the old EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM.
The rumor site is speculating that the exact date the embargo/NDA will list is either September 9th or September 12th, with Photokina starting on September 16th. So mark your calendars, and stay tuned for more info.
