The Rebel T4i is expected to be announced on or around March 2, 2012. The camera’s specs are not yet known, but reports say that it will come with a new EF-S 18-135 lens, which will be equipped with a silent autofocus motor.
Invites are already out for a press event on March 2nd; and if it’s not for the Rebel T4i, then we’ll expect it to be the new 5D camera–if it hasn’t already been announced on February 27/28 that is.
In related news, the Canon EOS-1D X is going to be delayed until April or May of this year.
One of the speculated reasons for its delay includes software-related problems.
