Is Canon readying the release of the replacement for the original EOS R? A new…
The lack of IBIS (In Body Image Stabilisation) on the Canon EOS R stirred a lot of discussion. Along with the “no dual card slot” it’s the most mentioned shortcoming of Canon’s first full frame mirrorless camera.
No wonder that most rumors about future EOS R models revolve around IBIS, especially since a series of interviews with Canon execs killed a lot of potential EOS R rumors.
As most of you likely know, we expect Canon to announce at least one more EOS R model this year, and according to our sources it will be a high resolution model which could replace the the EOS 5Ds(R) lineup.
Latest from the rumor outlets has it that Canon has an EOS R model with IBIS and a 100MP sensor in the pipeline. Canon Rumors seems to be pretty confident about the fact that Canon will release an EOS R model with the specs listed above, though we will not see “such a camera until 2020”. It’s also unclear when Canon will embrace IBIS on their full frame mirrorless cameras.
Canon Watch’s take: While it’s entirely possible that Canon might working on a 100MP EOS R with IBIS, we feel at this point it’s little more than wishful thinking. We do not expect such a camera anytime soon. What we expect, is an EOS R model with a sensor resolution around 50MP.
If you want to know what Canon is going to do with the EOS R system we recommend you have a look at this interview.
