2015 CP+ rumors roundup

Here is a quick recap on what is expected/rumored to be announced from the major camera and lens manufacturers during the CP+ show that will take place next month (February 12-15, 2015) in Japan:

Nikon will announce a new D7200, Nikon 1 J5 mirrorless and several new Coolpix cameras.

Leica does not take part of the CP+ show, but a new Monochrom rangefinder is expected to be announced in February/March.

There are no specific rumors, but Pentax will most likely introduce new Q camera/lenses and probably new Ricoh compact camera(s).

For a while Sigma is rumored to announce new 85mm f/1.424mm f/1.424-70mm f/2 OS HSM and 135mm f/1.8 DG OS lenses.

Canon is rumored to announce a new RebelT6i/750D, 5D Mark III successor and EOS M3 cameras plus new 11-24 f/4L and 18-300 f/3.5-5.6 lenses. Expect also a new Canon PowerShot compact camera with a large sensor.

Zeiss will release two new Loxia wide and tele prime lenses, but the official announcement will probably be later in 2015. I expect to see prototypes at the CP+ show.

Samsung is rumored to announce two new mirrorless cameras: NX500 and NX3300. Other rumors include a new NX Achromatic (black and white) mirrorless camera and new NX lenses.

Fuji already announced several new cameras and lenses. I doubt there will be anything else/groundbreaking coming next month.

Panasonic already announced their latest GF7 camera. We may also see a new lens or two.

Anything is possible here - no reliable rumors have surfaced online so far. New FE lenses are almost guaranteed. I personally hope for a new RX2 camera with a curved sensor (I love the RX1, it's a shame that Sony never released a firmware update to speedup the AF).

Olympus will announce their latest Olympus E-M5II MFT camera with new accessories and a new 14-150mm f/4-5.6 lens. New compact cameras are also expected.

Expect the official announcement of the Tokina AT-X PRO SD 24-70mm f/2.8 (IF) FX lens.

This is all for now - I will be updating this post in the next few weeks -bookmark this page for future reference.

    Hoping for some great stuff 🙂

    I would be surprised if Sigma releases an f/2 24-70, it’ll probably be an updated f/2.8, which is fine. Any one of those primes will be awesome if that come out.

    • Eric Calabros

      f/2 makes it too big, while people want smaller size than what f/2.8 already has

      • Cinekpol

        Some people do, some people don’t. I wouldn’t mind a larger one, especially for the f/2 aperture. Current Sigma 24-70 is not particularly large or heavy.

  • CompGuy

    Hopefully we will see an a7000 or a6100

    • Neopulse

      Doubt the a6000 will get an update so soon. Was released late April-May 2014 and it sold like hotcakes for the price range especially in the Black Friday-Xmas times. I hope also NEX-7 successor hopefully gets announced including the a7R successor.

    Ricoh is also rumored to announce FF version of GR 🙂

    • have not heard that one

      • x4rd

        There is whole new tread on pentaxforums, check it out 🙂

        • Zos Xavius

          I checked with an insider and he doesn’t know anything. If this rumor is true, it is highly secret. I would expect a FF dslr first. Current rumor is this spring there will be an announcement, possibly CP+ hopefully.

          • Willis

            FF Dslr i’ts been a common rummor in the last 5 years, but it seems this year is stronger than ever. There are people relatd to Pentax distributors claiming they already seen the prototype. Possibly just a rumor again, but who knows… It’s supposed to be announced on CP+ next month.

          • The Pentax full frame DSLR has been more than a rumor – Pentax confirmed it several times ion the past: https://photorumors.com/tag/pentax-full-frame-dslr/

            The rumors for a full frame Ricoh compact camera are new.

          • Willis

            Like I said, people related to Pentax distributors, who had reliable information before (told me about the k3 some time before the announcement, for example), told me they already saw the FF, and that was “awesome”, and “it would beat the Nikon D810”. But I’m a skeptical person, I dont know if I must belive that information or not.

          • Zos Xavius

            The faithful await. 🙂

        • Do you mean this discussion: http://www.ricohforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=72&t=11364

          This is not a rumor, just a speculation based on “discussion about possibilities of the next GR”

  • Neopulse

    I’m wanting to see the new Loxia lenses and FE lenses. Hope there’s an 85 f/1.8 in the works.

  • Gregory Lemieux

    +1 for RX1 MKII refresh and/or RX2 with curved sensor 🙂

  • MS

    I doubt Sigma will announce more than one of the lenses mentioned in the article. It’s time for the new 85mm, and the wide angle primes was discontinued recently… but Sigma introduces one prime in two years, not two at one event.

    P. S. No one ever predicted such Sigma lenses as 18-300mm, 17-70mm or any other affordable lens. Nevertheless, it’s time to update 17-50mm…

  • Lorenzo

    I hope Sony announces the a7000. Otherwise I’ll buy the a7.
