New Canon EOS-1D and EOS-5D Mk IV Cameras In 2014

More signs Canon is coming out of its funk, regrouping in 2014 and starting the New Year with exciting product announcements. A recent 'high level' dealer presentation in Tokyo suggests there will be at least two new full frame DSLR cameras coming next year, in addition to other cameras and EF Lenses.

The 2014 Winter Olympics and World Cup are two big sporting events that will highlight Canon's technological prowess in state of the art photography and the EOS-1D Mega Pixel Camera will be the premier announcement event for them. This camera is the replacement to the retired EOS-1Ds Mk III and may be announced after the sporting events (the second half of 2014, but expect to see prototypes at the games) with delivery commencing early 2015.

The second full frame camera will be the EOS-5D Mk IV. The current Mk III model is highly successful and Canon plans to make it even better but I hope they will not make the same mistake and underprice the new Mk IV. The new mega pixel EOS-1D camera will probably retail for about the same price ($8000) as the old EOS-1Ds Mk III.

In addition, the EOS-7D Mk II is also coming out next year, plus an assortment of PowerShot and Rebel replacements. It will be an exciting year and I am beginning to feel a revival of a 'sleeping giant.' I have been a Travel and Wildlife photographer using Canon equipment for 25 years and you can see my works on Keep checking back for the latest rumors and news.
