Rumor Has It: On the Rumor Mill and the Photo Industry

leaked

Rumors, leaks, and sneak peaks dominate headlines in photo gear news. More often than not, the appearance, specs and even price of a new piece of gear (this applies particularly to cameras) is known well before its manufacturer announces it themselves — a fact that should come as no surprise to frequent PetaPixel readers.

Another leak sprung over the weekend — if, that is, you believe it’s a leak and not a strategic move by the company. This one, however, doesn’t have to do with an upcoming camera, but rather some new glass. It’s the first official-looking photo of the rumored Sigma 24-105mm f/4 lens. Read more…

Rumor: Canon To Replace the Speedlite 430EX II with a 450EX in Early 2013

Canon is reportedly planning to introduce yet another model name to its Speedlite family sometime early next year. Canon Rumors hears from a good source that two new Speedlites will be arriving in the first or early second quarter of 2013. Both are said to be replacements of the bestselling 430EX II, which was announced back in June 2008.

Viewfinder-Equipped Canon EOS M Will Reportedly Arrive Late Next Year

One of the big complaints people have about the Canon EOS M (besides the horrendously slow autofocus) is the lack of a viewfinder. While autofocus can be improved through firmware updates, you can’t simply add an EVF or OVF to a camera by rolling out a download. Luckily, there appears to be a second EOS M camera on the way that does offer an electronic viewfinder.

Two New Canon Lenses Coming Soon? 24-70mm f/4 IS and 50mm f/1.4 IS

Last week we reported on rumors of an upcoming Canon 24-70mm f/4 IS lens. The latest word is that the lens is “coming soon”, and won’t be announced alone. In addition to updating the popular 24-70mm focal range with image stabilization — useful for video recording — Canon may also be planning to announcing a second lens, reportedly an image-stabilized followup to the much-loved Canon 50mm f/1.4.

Image-Stabilized Canon 24-70mm on the Way, But Will Be a f/4, Not f/2.8

An update to the image-stabilized Canon 24-70mm lens rumor that we shared yesterday: Canon Rumors is reporting with certainty that the lens is in fact on the way. However, the lens won’t be an IS version of the f/2.8, as previously reported, but an entirely new Canon 24-70mm f/4L IS. In other words, the lens will give up a stop in max aperture in exchange for IS.

Image-Stabilized Version of the Canon 24-70 f/2.8L Rumored to be Floating Around

When Canon unveiled the followup lens to its popular Canon 24-70mm f/2.8 L back in February, many photographers found it strange that the lens eschewed Image Stabilization even while two wide-angle prime lenses announced at the same time had IS. After all, a $2,300 lens that extends to 70mm on the telephoto end seems like it would benefit more from stabilization than 24mm and 28mm lenses. If you’ve been yearning for a “Brick” (as the 24-70mm used to be called) with IS, here’s some good news: the lens reportedly exists, and may already be floating around in the wild for initial tests.

Rumors: Multiple High-MP Prototypes in the Wild, Canon Miffed About Rumors

PhotoPlus is going down over in New York City in the second half of this week, and that’s when we might be hearing a peep out of Canon regarding its rumored high-resolution DSLR. If there’s any mention of the camera at all, it will probably at most be an “in development” announcement that confirms rumors but doesn’t reveal too much else.
