Canon Sweden executive Robert Westin says the launch of the new Canon products will happen on January 24th.
Along with the long expected EOS 7D, Canon is expected to launch a successor to 400D/Rebel XTi. As with 5D this camera also reached it's end of 18 month marketing cycle and during the winter holidays we saw great promotions for 400D/Rebel XTi also.
We already saw older 350D/Rebel XT not being promoted anymore and the expectations are that the 400D/Rebel XTi will replace the 350D/Rebel XT on the entry-level market to compete against Nikon's D40x.
The replacement for 5D must come due to the Nikon's introduction of their first full-frame DSLR back in August 2007. Also the 50, released in August 2005, is becoming obsolete, even though the price dropped quite a bit.
Another segment where we are expecting news is in the lens lineup.
2.0.3 firmware released - As we previously announced the 2.0.3 firmware was released by Canon, today. Details and firmware download can be found here.
