Canon EOS-1D X Mark II and EOS 5D Mark IV tidbits (and where to get fresh and unsophisticated Canon rumors)

Do you want your Canon rumors fresh and as directly from the source as possible? We can help.

There are a few sites, mainly in Asia, that first post leaked and reliable info about Canon products. The sites are:

According to the first two sites listed above, Canon will release two more DSLRs along with the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II and the EOS 5D Mark IV (click here) in 2016. One of these will likely be the EOS 80D, the other, I guess, the long overdue Rebel SL2. The aforementioned, and usually pretty well informed sites, suggest the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II will be announced for CES 2016 (and be on display there), the EOS 5D Mark IV in February 2016. A 24MP sensor is rumored for the EOS-1D Mark II, while the EOS 5D Mark IV should have a 28MP sensor (as posted first here on Canon Watch). We also reported that there could be a model split for the EOS 5D Mark IV, this is also confirmed by the aforementioned sites.

According to information I got from the editors of these site, the codename for the EOS 5D Mark IV is “invincible Buddha“. The 5D Mark II was “magic rabbit” and the 5D Mark III was codenamed “invincible umbrella”. According to the people who contacted me, the EOS 5D Mark III saw a drastic price drop in Hong Kong, which usually is a sign that an announcement of a replacement isn’t far away.

I am following anything coming from these sites, and will try to stay in touch with the editors. Stay tuned, we will soon know more.

Canon patent for EF-M 55mm f/3.5 macro lens

canon patent

A Canon patent for an EF-M 55mm f/3.5 macro lens for the EOS M system.

Canon is working on the future of the EOS M system, and there is a lot to come in 2016. This patent is just a hint about Canon’s mirrorless plans. This is a patent for an APS-C sensor, so the rumored Canon full-frame mirrorless camera is not involved here. However, we spotted a Canon patent for a similar optical formula some time ago (50mm f/3.5 IS). According to my sources, Canon’s full-frame mirrorless camera has been delayed because of mount-related issues. Another rumor we got, states that early prototypes of such a camera are already undergoing lab tests. Hard to say when we really can expect this camera, but I am sure it is coming.

Canon is now taking their EOS M system seriously. The EOS M3 was the right step in the right direction, and is a great camera. Some clickbait sites are saying that the EOS M3 is one of Canon’s worse releases of 2015. That’s utterly dumb and likely the oddest statement about Canon in 2015, and has the sole purpose to get traffic by smashing Canon. I have to say that I am surprised to see how many people feels the urge to smash the Canon EOS M3, as they did before with the EOS M. Guess this is just childish, and profitable. I own both cameras, along  with APS-C and FF bodies. Well, I am now on travel for the next 2 months and guess what camera I have with me? Right, the EOS M3. A great mirrorless camera with an image quality that outperforms most of the competitors.
