Canon Rumor: EOS R Cameras Announcement In February And May 2020

Canon Rumor

We reported many times that Canon is set to announce two new EOS R models within the first half of 2020. Here is a new Canon rumor about these cams.

Once more these announcement dates get a confirmation. You can expect the high resolution EOS Rs to be announced in February 2020, and another yet unknown EOS R camera in May 2020. Please note the “Rs” is a moniker created by the rumor mills and not an official Canon denomination.

We still do not have reliable information about the specifications of the high resolution Canon EOS Rs. So far these specifications have been rumored for the EOS Rs:

  • 75mp full-frame CMOS
  • Sensor “focused on the dynamic range”
  • Frames per second “… Sounded similar to the EOS R”
  • DIGIC 9
  • Dual Card Slots
  • Joystick the same as the EOS-1D X Mark III
  • Larger and higher resolution EVF than the EOS R
  • Fully articulating LCD screen
  • Fully weather-sealed
  • Similar ergonomics as the EOS R (No touch bar)

We know even less about the second EOS R camera that will get released in 2020. It might be the Canon EOS R Mark II, but it could also be another kind of EOS R camera, though we do not think it will be the rumored pro-oriented EOS R camera.

Will IBIS come to a Canon camera anytime soon? We are pretty sure Canon is working on IBIS, given the remarkable collection of patent applications dealing with it and the fact that a Canon exec told the world about. And it’s very likely that the first Canon camera to feature it will be a mirrorless camera in the EOS R lineup.

Stay tuned for the next Canon rumor.

Canon EOS R Rumor: Announcement Of Two Bodies In First Half 2020 Gets Another Mention

Canon Eos R Rumor

We already knew that Canon is going to announce two new EOS R bodies before Summer 2020. But it’s always good to have a confirmation through a new Canon EOS R rumor.

And that’s it: latest rumor from the web (re)confirms the rumor suggesting Canon will announced two EOS R cameras within the first half of 2020. One, the high resolution model dubbed EOS Rs by the rumor mills, is rumored to get announced soon, February being a candidate timeframe. The second EOS R camera that’s rumored to be announced in 2020 might be the EOS R Mark II.

Unfortunately we are still lacking reliable intel about the specifications for both rumored cameras. The only new thing we learned, according to the source, is that Canon will be “stepping it up a gear” with the next EOS R bodies.

As for the EOS Rs, the only specification list we have suggests that the sensor resolution we leaked back in April is still what we can expect. We were told the EOS Rs will feature 75MP (but 80MP have also been rumored). The EOS Rs might have these specifications:

  • 75mp full-frame CMOS
  • Sensor “focused on the dynamic range”
  • Frames per second “… Sounded similar to the EOS R”
  • DIGIC 9
  • Dual Card Slots
  • Joystick the same as the EOS-1D X Mark III
  • Larger and higher resolution EVF than the EOS R
  • Fully articulating LCD screen
  • Fully weather-sealed
  • Similar ergonomics as the EOS R (No touch bar)

It seems there are no doubts left that Canon will feature IBIS on future EOS R cameras, given the remarkable collection of patent applications dealing with it and the fact that a Canon exec told the world about. And it’s very likely that the first Canon camera to feature it will be mirrorless.

Say tuned for the next Canon EOS R rumor.

Canon EOS R Mark II Rumor – A Set Of Possible Specifications Surfaces

Canon Eos R Mark Ii Rumor

Here is the latest Canon EOS R Mark II rumor.

A set of possible specifications for the upcoming Canon EOS R Mark II surfaced from the web. The Canon EOS R Mark II is expected to get announced in 2020, though we do not yet have a reliable timeframe.

We suggest you take the following list of possible Canon EOS R Mark II specifications with a grain of salt:

  • 32MP image sensor
  • IBIS (In Body Image Stabilisation)
  • DIGIC X (A different version than the CPU featured on the EOS-1D Mark III)
  • 12fps
  • ISO 100 – 51,200
  • 1 SD card slot
  • 1 CFexpress slot
  • No crop 4K video with DPAF (Dual Pixel Autofocus)
  • No RAW video
  • 5mp EVF
  • May get a new naming scheme

All in all the list sounds plausible. We have no doubts that Canon will feature IBIS on future cameras, given the remarkable collection of patent applications dealing with it and the fact that a Canon exec told the world about. And it’s very likely that the first Canon camera to feature it will be mirrorless.

It’s a bit early for reliable specifications (assuming an announcement mid 2020) but stay tuned, the next Canon EOS R Mark II rumor will come soon.

Canon RF Lens Rumor: A Nifty Fifty And Maybe A Pancake Lens Coming In 2020

Canon EF 40mm Canon Rf Lens Rumor

Here is a new Canon RF lens rumor.

It’s suggested Canon will announce two relatively inexpensive lenses for the Canon EOS R full frame mirrorless system: a 50mm f/1.8 (Nifty Fifty) lens and maybe also a pancake lens with f/2.8.

The source claims that at least the f/2.8 pancake is “definitely in the works” and that we might expect the announcement within the first half of 2020.

The same source claims the 50mm f/1.8 lens has already been shown on a roadmap document, though without any timeframe for the announcement.

This rumor has a high likelihood to be reliable. First, a 50mm f/1.8 lens seems to be just a must for any full frame system, so it’s nothing but straight logic to expect Canon to release it. Secondly, a pancake lens with f/2.8 is also just straight logic, at least at some focal lenght. Both lenses are for sure on Canon’s RF mount roadmap.

Stay tuned for the next Canon RF lens rumor.

Canon Is Likely To Announce An RF 70-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS Lens For The EOS R This Year

Canon RF 35mm F/1.8 Review Macro IS STM RF 70-400mm

Canon will most likely announce a new lens for the EOS R full frame mirrorless system, the RF 70-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS.

A Canon patent application for such a lens can be found in a Japanese patent application database. There are no hints about the announcement date, just that it will happen in 2020. The source says the size of the rumored RF 70-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS will be more or less the same as the Canon RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS

Seems to be a nice addition to the EOS R lens lineup, and will be a budget oriented lens (I totally missed the “L”), which I’m sure will make happy a lot of people.

All Canon rumors are listed here.
