According to latest rumors from a new source, Canon may announce Canon SX60 HS (or IS) camera at the end of May 2014, with a focal length of 20-2000mm (camera will feature 100X optical zoom).
We have no doubt about Canon capability (see the 100X compact zoom lens patent by Canon), but the current market competition is of 60X-65X, at 2015 we will have a bunch of 70-75X megazoom camera and on 2016 we will sure have 80-85X megazoom camera from Fuji, Sony, Nikon & Canon.
The 100-105X zoom compact zoom lenses slot is reserved for 2017-2018, if Canon announces a 100X optical zoom camera it will sure break the competition rhythm, BTW… I will sure buy Canon SX60 HS camera and add it to my camera collection.
Expected announcement date is Late May 2014.
