p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · New Lenses and Cameras Canon should offer


Each year brings new camera and lens offerings, few of which hold any interest for me, as someone who shoots mostly wildlife. 2017 was a case in point: E.g. 50mm TS-E, 85 1.4, etc. Although the 100-400 update was welcome.

Hopefully 2018 will bring some new goodies from Canon which will actually be useful (to me ): Here's a list:

* 600 f/4 DO.
* 800 f/5.6 DO
* 200-500 zoom
* EF (not EF-S) 24-250 IS, or similar. A true all-purpose full frame travel lens, lighter than the 28-300L.
* Updated 50mm 1.4. Ring USM + IS.
* 1Ds mk iv. 45 mp, 8FPS, all the 1D goodies. and/or:
* 1D mk v. APS-H sensor, 30MP, 10FPS.

Plus, higher dynamic range sensors, with improved ability to recover shadow detail.

All of these, except maybe the sensors, would seem to be very do-able, and I would think the demand would be there. But instead Canon seems to focus on strange, specialized lenses, and on keeping the resolution of the 1D series limited.

Thoughts?

I’m a fan of the FD400/4.5, pretty long and fairly fast. Would take at least a 1.4EX. Nice and light for a lens that long. An update for the EF mount with IS would be nice.

I think with sensors getting such good performance at higher ISOs, a pellicle mirror camera would be really interesting. The 7DIII or a 1DXII variant would be an interesting platform.

ETA: I was hoping for the recent FD mount anniversary that we’d get a digital F1N and maybe a couple of lenses to go with them. Kind of seeing Nikon’s Df and raising the bar a level. Look at how well the latest Leica M10 has been selling. A year after introduction, it is just coming into an ‘in stock’ situation.

Being an APS-C DSLR user I'm not really interested in new Canon FF models unless they change the rules of the game with something like a Sony A7R3 with EF mount. For APS-C bodies I don't see interesting options on the horizon, a better 7D3 is bound to come this year but almost certainly too heavy and expensive for my taste. Given that it took Canon over eight years to upgrade the old 12-18MP sensors to the current 24 MP with better low ISO DR, I'm not expecting much improvement in APS-C sensors over the next few years. Improved DR at 400-1600 ISO would be great but I don't see it happening, hopefully they will prove me wrong ;-)

Lenses I'm looking for:

* 4/300mm IS upgrade with top quality optics, updated AF and IS systems and hopefully DO construction that makes it much smaller and lighter, similar to Nikon 4/300PF.
* long macro lens with IS that is light/compact enough for handheld use, e.g. a 3.5/180 IS macro or 4/200 IS macro.
* high quality "walkaround" standard zoom for APS-C that is better, lighter and maybe slightly brighter than the aging 15-85IS, something like f/2.8-f/4, 15-50mm IS.
* compact high quality APS-C SWA prime e.g. f/2.8 16mm or f/4 16mm IS.
* a high quality bright standard lens like 1.4/50 IS would be nice, but it's probably going to be expensive and not high on my list because most of the time the cheap 1.8/50STM would do the job.

I can't hear any of my sensors, so they must not be very noisy...

An xxx-600mm zoom, I don't care if it is a drain pipe or a pancake so long as it is optically good.

The main clients of the 1-series are photo journalists. They don’t need more resolution, esp not if that would slow transmission of the images.

The next version of the 5DsR should have 2 variants available.

5DsR mkII with new sensor, increased DR and better AF

5DsR-E , same as above but with a high res EVF (no OVF at all), fully mirrorless.

In the ten years since I switched to Nikon, the 1Ds4 hasn't appeared so my hopes are low. I would even be pleased with the mythical 3D but that's been even longer a wait. On the lens front, Christmas came to me in the form of the TS-E 135/4L. Surprising things happen in life! Am using it on my Sony A7ii, but I see a 1Ds3 in my future (the ol' 1Ds is looking a bit too rustic for my needs).

With fully articulating screen ... or better yet, detachable to use as a viewable remote.

Yes I think the EVF model could be ok with a tilt/swivel screen as it would be more of a slower use type camera and typically not used in the rough and tumble environment that would damage it.

I would prefer a screen like on the Pentax K-1 as it works better when the camera is mounted in portrait with an L bracket. The Canon tilt-swivel loses a lot of movement in this case.

I too was hoping for a re-incarnation of the H at 30+ mp. Perhaps in the 7D line as the 7DX. As long as they maintain the IQ in the 1D series, I'm satisfied with lower mp... just keep the noise away

Two lenses I would like to see - a new 300 f/4 IS with updated IS/optics and a 400 f/5.6 with IS. Both are long overdue for an update.

I only want 1 product from canon in 2018.

A mirrorless 50-60mp camera (with bundled adaptor).
Using the 5d4 on sensor adc's and no AA filter like 5dsr, 'pro' level build and ergonomics.
