This is really becoming annoying, now. After days of hearing that Canon is fighting to get an extension to the NDA of the photo press, it seems that several elements point to a further delay (compared to the previously probable launch date of 17th September).

After some interesting comments seen about the age of the current EF 100-400 f/4-5.6L IS tele-zoom from Canon (for example, in the recent test done by Chasseur d’Images), there is now an active rumour about the arrival of a real replacement. The Canon EF 100-400 f/4-5.6L IS II would no longer be a push-pull design… Read More

As seen on Canon EOS evolution (US web site). Importantly, the progression of the moon phases will apparently progressively reveal the new camera around the end of the month, just in tome for the opening of the Photokina fair.
The Canon France web site started to prepare the arrival of a new Canon EOS camera with an animated teaser. Visibly, it will be at the top of the range (who said Canon EOS 7D?).
Thanks to Image et Nature magazine who says so on its next cover page. So, no Canon EOS 5D Mark II or similar. It will be Canon EOS 7D. I told you that the press was currently held by the Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDAs). Here is one which failed to cover it completely…
