What Canon DSLR Will Be Announced Next Month?

By Anthony Thurston on January 19th 2014

We made it through CES without any major DSLR announcements from Canon. Which, if you ask me, is not entirely surprising. They did announce a few point and shoots and other consumer tech, but on the DSLR side of things, crickets…


Given that Nikon dropped the D4s bomb, many have speculated that Canon would be doing something similar soon. That is not the case, at least not according to the latest reports from the Canon rumor mill. According to these reports the next Canon DSLR announcement will actually be a new entry level DSLR, something below the EOS 100D (SL1).

No details about the camera have been leaked as of yet, so there is not much to say other than the expected announcement. The rumors say that they suspect that the camera will be announced in Tokyo during CP+ this February. They also said to expect two Canon DSLR announcements this year beyond this entry level model, one is expected to be the 7D replacement (even if it’s not a 7D Mark II) and the other is likely a new EOS-1 D for the World Cup.

Canon 50mm f/1.4Beyond camera land, it was also mentioned to expect “a lot” of Canon lenses to be announced this year. Maybe Canon will actually start updating many of their older lenses, many of which have designs that are 20 years old. Currently, the only Canon lens rumors I am aware of are, the 50mm update and a possible 400mm F/5.6 update. So beyond that, your guess is as good as mine.

Finally, regarding Canon, make sure to check out our Canon Lens Wars series. We just released the 50mm results and will be bringing out the 70mm results soon. If you are curious how each Canon lens stacks up to the others at the same focal lengths, then this series was made just for you.

    Its going to be be Canon 1DXs which they have been working on to shut down the D4, as if they needed to any more, then Canon 5D Mark IV which will feature 4K recoding and use new CFast cards and SD cards. Compact flash is a thing of the past. My other thoughts are discontinuing the 7D series because its really no diffrent form the high end consumer DSLR’s. I would like them to change the 6D a lot to become the newish 7D Mark II

      I disagree, the 7D was way ahead of the rest (below the full frames of course). I am looking forward to the 7D mkII. Higher Megs, faster fps, and of course two of the newest processors. I’ve got my fingers crossed.

    hopefully we will see another fullframe soon maybe between the 1dx and 5d 3

    Hmmm, I’m leaning more and more toward switching to Nikon. **gasp**

      Sony for me, but if Canon releases a global shutter DSLR I might stay. I’d really want a full frame mirrorless with a global shutter though.
