We have published earlier that Canon will announce a new version of existing 35mm F1.4L lens, there was expectation that Canon will announce EF35mm F1.4L II USM on 14th August, 2015 at the cost of $1,899. But due to some unknown reason it was not announced till date.
Now Digicame-info came with the first image and specs of the upcoming Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L II Lens which is the confirmation of its announcement within few days.
The specification of the lens:-
Lens construction: 14 sheets group 11
2 aspherical lens (Grinding aspherical one large diameter glass molded aspherical one)
One UD lens
One BR lens
The diaphragm blades 9 blades (circular aperture)
A minimum focusing distance of 0.28m. Maximum magnification is 0.21x
Finally EOS M4 rumors hitting the web and hence we can expect Canon EOS M4 is coming in 2016 with advance core specification compared to the current Canon EOS M4. The source also added that Canon will also announce multiple zoom and price lenses in 2016.
Canon EOS 3 was of Asia only release but Canon EOS M 4 will be a global release and it will sure up-lift the face of Canon mirrorless to a new level.
A portion of the interview of Canon Managing Director Published before the announcement of Canon 5DSR camera.
Take a look at the interview (published on September 25th, 2014)
Masaya Maeda, the Managing Director and Chief Executive, Image Communication Products Operations confirmed that Canon is working on serious mirrorless camera system other than EOS-M
Currently no Canon camera offers more than 22MP. Do your DSLR customers ask for higher resolution? Maeda: Yes. We know that many of our customers need more resolution and this is under consideration. In the very near future you can expect us to show something in terms of mirrorless and also a higher resolution sensor.
We have already seen the Canon 5DS and 5DS R DSLR with super resolution 50MP fullframe sensor..what left is Canon Fullframe Mirrorless Camera.
In the last post we have discussed that Canon 5D Mark IV is at-least 6 months away from now according to the information was published over Canonrumor.com. But you should also know that the post was actually reply to MichaelVadon (dpreview forum member) who claims that 5D Mark IV is coming will arrive in Q4 of 2015.
From few weeks MichaelVadon putting a lot information related to 5D successor (which is really hard to believe since the source is new).
We are putting all the info here since his post getting a lot attention of not only dpreview forum members but worlwide rumor mills also reposting the same stuff again and again. My mail-box is almost full with email alerts from regular readers, all the emails have same question “is that true?” with a link pointing towards dpreview forum thread created by Michael.
According to a article published over famous rumor mills the Canon 5D Mark IV announcement is at-least 6 months away from now. It is expected that Canon will announce Canon 1DX Mark II before the announcement of Canon 5D Mark IV camera and if it’s true than Canon will sure wait to get a sufficient sales volume of Canon 1DX Mk II.
We do hope this time Canon will bring out advance phase AF module compared to its old 61 point phase AF module/sensor used inside Canon 1DX and 5D Mark III. The other most important feature we are waiting is introduction of Dual-pixel CMOS AF technology in fullframe still camera, however Canon already implemented Dual-pixel CMOS fullframe AF sensor inside its C300 Mark II Cinema announced on 8, April 2015.
Take a look at the AF speed of Canon Fullframe Dual-pixel CMOS AF sensor below.
Latest patent surfaced over the web that shows a constant aperture zoom lens for 1 inch sensor camera.Tt’s a big achievement for Canon for achieving constant F2.8 aperture through-out the zoom range since till date no Canon compact camera have a constant aperture based high quality Zoom lens,.

Canon Compact Cinema 4K Lens We expect that the upcoming lens will be used in the next version XC10 camera, probably XC20 or CX10 Mark II camera. The camera will arrive sometime in in late 2016 or in early 2017.

It’s look like Canon is fully per-pared to announce the firmware update of its flagship Canon 1DX camera. It’s a fact and not a rumor since according to a Canon 1DX user and dforum.net forum member PSNet he found firmware 2.0.8 installed on his camera after coming back from Canon professional service. However the user didn’t discuss about improvements included in the latest version of the firmware update.
We have to keep in mind that after a major firmware update of Canon 7D [see our post published, on June 28th, 2012] camera Canon took almost two years to announce Canon 7D Mark II camera.
Will the upcoming firmware update can delay the announcement date of Canon 1DX Mark II camera ?
However at this moment I don’t expect the upcoming firmware will bring any major changes in the core specification of the camera and it will only fix minor bugs related to new / wide angle lenses. Hence you don’t have to worry about the delay of Canon 1DX Mark II camera, it will arrive before Q1 of 2016.
