Canon didn’t announce any new DSLR cameras at NAB 2017 and they recently released the new instant rebates: Save up to $550 on selected Canon Cameras. So, what’s coming next? What can we expect from Canon in 2017?
1. Canon EOS 6D Mark II: the replacement of Canon 6D, is expected to be announced in late Q2 or early Q3 of 2017, before September 2017. There are some rumors around the web saying that Canon EOS 6D Mark II will NOT come in 2017. I don’t think this is true and I don’t think Canon will abandon the 6D line. We know the Canon 6D has been a great seller for Canon, and Canon EOS 6D successor is eagerly anticipated. So, hard to abandon a product line when it is successful.
