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 EOS Rs Rumor: Announcement Date Gets Another Mention

Canon EOS Rs Rumor

Here is a Canon EOS Rs rumor. The announcement date of the high resolution Canon EOS R we leaked in the past got another mention on the Internet.

Please note that the upcoming high resolution EOS R model has been dubbed “EOS Rs” by the Internet community and that it is not an official Canon moniker.

However, latest murmurings about the Canon EOS Rs suggest it will be announced ahead of CP+, starting at the end of February, and that fits perfectly with the already rumored announcement date. Along with the high resolution EOS Rs, Canon might also announce two new, possibly budget-oriented RF mount lenses.

It seems that the sensor resolution we leaked back in April is still the rumored resolution. We were told the EOS Rs will feature 75MP (but 80MP have also been rumored). So far we do not have really reliable intel about the the EOS Rs, all we know is what is rumored (take with a grain of salt):

  • 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)

The list originates from a source who claims to have shot a prototype of the EOS Rs.

Stay tuned, the next Canon EOS Rs rumor will come soon, and also expect first reliable leaks in the next weeks.

Canon EOS-1D X Mark III Announcement Next Week, Price And All The Important Specs

Canon Eos-1d X Mark Iii

Here are some more bits about the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III.

The Canon EOS-1D X Mark III will be announced next week at CES 2020. The price will be $6,499.

The EOS-1D X Mark III will have a 20MP resolution, and we are pretty sure this will stir a lot of heat on the Internet since the 1D X Mark II already had 20MP. Here are the most important specifications for the EOS-1D X Mark III, and as you can see there is some impressing stuff:

  • 20.1MP resolution sensor
  • 16 fps (20 fps in Liveview)
  • Up to 5.4K (5472 × 2886) internal RAW video recording
  • No crop in 4K or RAW recording
  • Autofocus not available when recording RAW or 4K/60p
  • 191 AF points (155 cross-type) in DSLR mode
  • Liveview AF focuses at -6EV, PDAF with optical viewfinder focuses at -4EV
  • No Dual Pixel AF when shooting 4K 60p or RAW video
  • ISO 100-102,400 (819,200 extended)
  • Dual CFexpress card slots
  • RAW Buffer: 1,000+
  • RAW + JPEG Large buffer: 1,000+
  • RAW + HEIF Large buffer: approx. 350
  • Price: $6,499

Wow, a 1000+ buffer on RAW shooting! But no DPAF at 4K/60p. Bummer. Also, it should now be sure that IBIS will not be on board.

Announcement next week during CES 2020. Stay tuned.

Unreleased Canon Lens Appears At Certification Authority (RF mount?)

Top 10 Cameras Canon Rumors Full Frame Mirrorless Camera Canon Eos R Pro Eos R Canon Lens Explorers Of Light

According to Nokishita, a Canon lens for a ILC has been registered at a Russian certification authority. The SKU of the lens is 4111C005AA (image below). Since when are lenses registered at certification authorities?

canon lens

We think this most likely refers to an upcoming RF lens for the Canon EOS R full frame mirrorless system. Or does it refer to the already released RF 85mm f/1.2L DS, mentioned in the image above? Which one we do not know for the time being. Recent rumours suggested Canon is set to release some consumer oriented lenses for the EOS R. If true, this lens might be among them.

Among the next Canon releases we expect the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III (all rumors), already announced development-wise but still shrouded in mystery. The EOS-1D X Mark III is expected for February 2020. There is still uncertainty about the sensor resolution. While both 20MP and 24MP are rumored, we think the latter is more likely.

Canon might also release up to three EOS R bodies in 2020. One will be the high resolution EOS R, also expected for February 202, the other one might be the pro-oriented EOS R, though this one might well slip into 2021. And then there might be the EOS R Mark II in 2020. One of these upcoming EOS R bodies is rumoured to have a hybrid EF/RF mount. Time will tell.

One of the hottest speculation about upcoming Canon cameras concern IBIS (In Body Image Stabilisation). Some rumors suggest it will be featured on the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III. We think this is unlikely. There is no reason to doubt that 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. But it’s likely that the first Canon camera to feature it will be a mirrorless camera in the EOS R lineup, and not the flagship DSLR.

Stay tuned for more.
