These registered Canon gear has not been announced yet (EOS 6D Mark II?)

 

canon rumorsEos 6d mark ii

There is still a list of Canon gear that was registered at certification authorities but has yet to be announced by Canon.

Please note: some sites are insisting the Canon EOS 6D Mark II is among the list. While this for sure captures the interest of the masses, it’s also good to be honest to say that there is no hint in the list pointing to the EOS 6D Mark II (which, btw, is late on schedule). The other Canon DSLR many want to spot in the list is the Canon EOS SL2, which I am sure will be announced soon.

The Canon EOS 6D Mark II is becoming more mysterious month after month. First, there are some persistent rumors (1 | 2) that there will be no EOS 6D Mark II but a mirrorless full-frame camera instead, and second, no one had any reliable intel about the EOS 6D Mark II so far. This is a bit unusual even for a company dedicated to secrecy like Canon.

The list of Canon gear registered at certification authorities:

DS126631

  • Digital single-lens reflex camera
  • Wi-Fi · Bluetooth installed
  • Equipped with latest wireless module ES202

DS126671

Back to the EOS 6D Mark II. Canon Watch posted bits of suggested specifications over the last 2 years. Summing it up, these are the EOS 6D Mark II specifications thar have been suggested to me:

  • 28MP sensor

  • Articulated touchscreen
  • 6 fps

All Canon EOS 6D Mark II rumors, all Canon rumors.

Irix 11mm f/4 Firefly

The Irix 11mm f/4, manufactured by TH Swiss and not shipping yet, is a highly anticipated lens. Christopher Frost Photography posted a pretty informative, 10 minutes video-review of the Firefly version of the Irix 11mm f/4 (the other, more rugged one is Blackstone). He used a Canon EOS 6D and an EOS M3 to test the Irix 11mm f/4.
