Is the Canon EOS 90D the last iteration of the highly popular EOS xxD lineup? We got a tip pointing in that direction.
Canon will not replace the EOS 90D with a new model, we have been told. Instead, Canon will release a new APS-C mirrorless camera as replacement. The source didn’t tell if this new camera will be an EOS M or an EOS R model.
Not the first time a rumor suggests the end of the long running EOS xxD lineup. In the past we had a rumor suggesting there would be no EOS 90D and a MILC instead. It didn’t happen.
And the Canon EOS 7D series? Rumors suggests Canon might see a mirrorless future here too. This could get interesting since the EOS 7D lineup was always intended for the pros who wanted or needed an APS-C body (for instance to get more reach with their telephoto lenses). Canon has to release a truly amazing APS-C mirrorless camera to replace the EOS 7D Mark II (and the EOS 90D too, for that matter).
A recent rumor suggests an EOS R camera with APS-C sensor might be on Canon’s radar. Rumors that Canon might release an APS-C camera in the EOS R lineup are surfacing since a while. 2021 might be the year for such a camera.
I’m particularly fond of the Canon EOS xxD lineup. The EOS 40D was my first “serious” DSLR. A great camera, I still have it. Then came the EOS 70D and later the EOS 80D, the latter being my favorite all-round DSLR.
Btw, how would the next iteration of the xxD lineup be named, Canon EOS 95D? EOS 100D is already taken (the Rebel SL1 is named EOS 100D in Europe).
