Canon has begun teasing the launch of a new product, inviting its fans to get their cameras ready as “something big is coming” presumably in the near future.
The rumor mill has constantly hinted that Canon is working on a considerable number of products which will be announced ahead of the Photokina 2014.
The company is aiming to reveal new cameras and lenses in early September, so that the Photokina attendees will know what they will be able to see at the world’s largest digital imaging event.
Canon India has just posted a teaser on its official Facebook account, which could be just a small hint that the EOS 7D Mark II DSLR will be revealed soon.
Canon teaser says that we should get our cameras ready because “something big is coming”
It is not unusual for companies to tease their upcoming products. Canon, Nikon, Sony, and many others have done it before. This time, the teaser comes from Canon India, which is claiming that “something big is coming”.
This sounds like an important announcement, especially considering the fact that the company’s fans are invited to get their cameras ready.
There are no further details regarding what is coming, but we can take a look at previous speculations in order to get an idea of what may be launched sometime in the next few weeks.
Canon India may be teasing the EOS 7D Mark II DSLR camera
The first thing that comes to mind is the sought-after Canon 7D Mark II. This DSLR camera has been rumored many times before, while its predecessor has just been discontinued after a five-year life cycle.
For those of you who are unaware of the subject, it is worth noting that the rumor mill has said that the new DSLR will have a design inspired by the original EOS-1 SLR camera.
Sources have pointed out that the 7D replacement will feature a redesigned top plate which will be flat, just like the one found in the EOS-1, a device which can be seen in the Canon teaser.
Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II lens would also fit the description
If it were to take size into consideration, then the teaser could be pointing to a telephoto zoom lens. The Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II lens should have been launched a long time ago. However, this one has been delayed for unknown reasons, too.
This lens is a strong candidate, but the rumor mill is claiming that both the EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II lens and the EOS 7D Mark II DSLR are coming this fall, so we should not rule out any possibilities.
Either way, take this information with a pinch of salt and stay tuned!
