The Canon 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM lens first debuted in 1998… 1998! In November that’ll be sixteen years on the market without a replacement, and while lenses aren’t typically replaced as frequently as camera bodies, hope that Canon would manufacture a ‘sequel’ to the trusty old lens still runs strong.

Well, those hopeful hearts now have something to rejoice about, because the Canon Rumors has received a concrete tip that the 100-400mm followup will indeed be arriving alongside the 7D Mark II just in time for Photokina in September. Read more…

One of the hopes people had for the Nikon D810 was that it would feature 4K video, but even though Nikon made it obvious in the press materials that this camera is a capable video machine, the rumored 4K capability never came to fruition.

If you’ve been following the most recent rumors regarding the long-awaited Canon APS-C flagship 7D Mark II, you know that the latest news is that Canon has some fancy new sensor technology in the works, and that it’s supposed to re-establish Canon as an imaging leader.

None of the rumor sites have been able to pin down what this sensor tech actually is, but its existence seems a near certainty; and now, it looks like the 7D won’t be the only release to benefit from it. Canon may be refreshing the 5D and 1D lines as well. Read more…

A reliable source earlier today told Canon Rumors to expect some new sensor technology when Canon finally reveals its followup to the 5-year-old 7D. The source didn’t share many details, but this is supposedly “more than an ‘evolutionary’ technology” — something new that will appear in all Canon DSLRs from this point on but is not the Foveon-like tech spotted in some patents.

With the 7D Mark II supposedly being put through its paces at the World Cup, more details about the tech in the forthcoming APS-C flagship are bound to turn up, so keep checking back and go browse our previous coverage to hold you over in the meantime.

Here’s a quick but exciting update for Nikon full-frame shooters. According to Nikon Rumors, who reported in May that the D800/E replacement would arrive sometime in June, the so-called D800s will officially make its debut on June 26th.

NR used the word ‘confirmed’ with this rumor, so we’re assuming it’s as accurate as a date gets without actually being announced by Nikon itself. For more info on the camera, which looks to be an incremental but perhaps still worthwhile update to the D800/E duo, check out our previous coverage that includes a full list of rumored specs.
