Canon will reportedly introduce new products aimed at higher-end users at CP+ Camera & Photo Imaging Show 2015, including a compact camera, DSLRs, and lenses.
Although Canon never makes a big splash at the Consumer Electronics Show, quite a huge number of its fans have expected the company to launch something more than just a few compacts during this year’s edition.
As the show is nearing its end, it is fairly obvious that the Japan-based company will not make any more announcements. However, more products are coming at CP+ 2015 and they will be aimed at more experienced users, as they will include DSLRs, a premium compact camera, and at least one lens, says a trusted source.
Premium Canon compact camera with superzoom lens to be revealed at CP+ 2015
Canon still needs to complete its line-up of fixed-lens cameras. The G1X Mark II and the G7 X are already available on the market, while the already-confirmed large-zoom compact should have been launched by the end of 2014.
It appears that the camera is now on track to be officially presented at CP+ 2015 this February. The camera will employ a 20-megapixel 1-inch-type image sensor, a 35mm equivalent lens of 24-200mm with a maximum aperture of f/1.4-2, and optical image stabilization.
This unnamed compact camera will have a body made of magnesium alloy and a 3.2-inch LCD screen on the back, but a viewfinder will not be added to its specs list.
Connectivity is very important nowadays, hence this premium Canon shooter will come packed with both WiFi and GPS.
High-end Canon DSLR and at least one Rebel could show up next month
In the DSLR department, Canon will make its move with one or more Rebel models. The most likely of them to show up is the EOS 750D / Rebel T6i, while the EOS 150D / Rebel SL2 comes as a close second.
As stated above, one of these DSLRs is definitely showing up at CP+ 2015 or around the date of this major event taking place in Yokohama, Japan.
Another product expected to drop at CP+ 2015 is the high-end Canon DSLR with a big-megapixel image sensor. The company may choose to only announce the development of this camera, but do not act surprised if you get to see the real deal next month.
Long-rumored Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L lens might finally be unveiled this February
Finally, another high-end product that is expected to show up in mid-February is the sought-after EF 11-24mm f/4L lens. It is still a mystery why Canon has not revealed this optic, yet, considering the fact that its specs, price, and photo have already been leaked on the web.
Other lenses (aimed at DSLRs with APS-C-sized sensors) could make an official appearance, too, but it is too early to speculate on them at this point. In order to find out more details, stick with us!
