Canon’s next mirrorless camera is the EOS M20, to be announced in August 2017

Canon’s Next Mirrorless Camera Is The EOS M20, To Be Announced In August 2017

We knew Canon would release a new entry-level mirrorless camera since registration at a certification authority leaked over the web. And we anticipated it might be named EOS M20.

New rumor has it that Canon will announce the EOS M20 at the end of August 2017.

No specifications so far. Being the replacement for the EOS M10 and an entry-level MILC, it will not be a powerhouse, though some of the tech and features of the EOS M5 and EOS M6 might be on board.

Stay tuned.

No one knows the exact release date for the Canon EOS 90D and 7D Mark III but they try

canon rumors

Pointless rumors surfaced on the web. Announcement dates for the Canon EOS 90D and EOS 7D Mark III are suggested.

The first half of 2018 is when Canon is said to announce the 90D and 7D3.

It’s way too early for a reliable rumor about the announcement for these cameras. Pointing to CP+ for the announcement of at least one of these DSLRs makes sense but still is pure speculation.

We knew the announcement date of the EOS 6D Mark II only a few weeks before it happened, after many supposed announcement dates that all were wrong. The approximately one dozen of wrong announcement dates for the 6D2 all came from the same source that’s now suggesting the dates for the EOS 90D and 7D Mark III.

Enjoy the camera you have and don’t waste time with rumors.


Canon EOS 6D Mark II retail price in Japan leaks, it’s around $2100 converted, available in August 2017

Canon EOS 6D Mark II Retail Price In Japan Leaks, It’s Around $2100 Converted, Available In August 2017

Nokishita posted the Canon EOS 6D Mark II price tags for Japan.

  • EOS 6D Mark II body: 243,000 Yen (approx. $2,160)
  • Kit with EF 24 – 105mm F 3.5-5.6 IS STM: 290,520 Yen (approx. $2,590)
  • Kit with EF 24 – 70mm F4 L IS USM: 353,160 Yen ($3,150)

My take: the rumor suggesting a price of $1,999 for the Canon EOS 6D Mark II in the USA is still to consider. Even if the conversion from Yen is around $2,100, it doesn’t mean the price in the USA will the more or less exact conversion from the Yen. A price of $1,999 for the body is still likely.

The availability of the EOS 6D Mark II in August 2017 also seems confirmed once more.
