Upcoming High Resolution Canon EOS R Might Have Up to 80MP

Canon Eos R

We have been told (thanks) that the upcoming high resolution Canon EOS R camera might have a resolution of 80MP.

We are not sure what to think about this, for the time being. The last rumor we got about the high res EOS R body, was that it will have resolution that’s higher than the new Sony a7R IV (having 61MP).

The rumored resolution for this EOS R body has always been something around 75MP. A resolution of 80MP is new to us. However, it’s possible. Canon for sure has the know how and the manufacturing facilities to make such a sensor. Moreover, it seems quite clear that Canon wants to regain the crown of full frame sensor resolution.

As you probably know, we think that Canon will not release a new iteration of the EOS 5Ds/EOS 5Ds R. Instead, most likely, Canon will release a mirrorless version to replace these cameras. Given that the EOS 5Ds/EOS 5Ds R have a resolution of 50MP, and given the fact they were released in 2015, a jump to 80MP doesn’t seem that much a stretch. And it’s just 5MP more than the so far rumored resolution. Finally, we have reasons to believe the upcoming high res EOS R has already undergone field testing.

What do you think? Stay tuned…

Leaked Certification Data Suggests A New Canon Rebel Or Entry Level EOS M Are Coming

Canon Rumors Eos R Full Frame Mirrorless Eos M

As we wrote after yesterday’s updated list of yet unreleased Canon gear, it appears a Canon Rebel DSLR or a EOS M50/M100 replacement might be on its way. The leaked certification data refers to the LP-E12 battery, which is used by these cameras (and some PowerShots).

We do not yet know if the Canon Rebel or entry-level EOS M camera will be announced along with tthe Canon EOS 90D and possibly a new EOS M5/M6 camera around August 28th, but it is possible. So, can we expect a new Canon Rebel or entry level EOS M camera. Definitely, as we know after yesterday’s leaked intel. Some new EF-M lenses might also be announced.

Stay tuned.

Canon Might Announce a 35mm f/1.2L Lens For The EOS R System

Canon RF 50mm F/1.2 EOS R System

Is Canon set to release another f/1.2 lens for the EOS R system in the near future?

After the RF 50mm f/1.2L and the RF 85mm f/1.2L Canon night announce a 35mm f/1.2L lens. This sounds plausible to us (despite the fact there are too many low reliable RF mount rumors around). First, 35mm is a very classic focal length on full frame (Canon already released the relatively inexpensive RF 35mm f/1.8 IS Macro). Next, another f/1.2L lens makes sense for a system like the EOS R, designed to mount high performing optics. Indeed, we are pretty sure the rumored RF 35mm f/1.2L will not be the last f/1.2 lens for the EOS R. Maybe a 24mm f/1.2L is next?

The Canon RF 35mm f/1.2L lens is said to be released somewhen in 2020. Canon still has to release a bunch of lenses they already announced. If this lens is going to be released for sure it will not be a lens for people on a budget.

We expect Canon to make an announcement on August 28th. The Canon EOS 90D will be announced, possibly along with the EOS M6 Mark II and some lenses for the EOS M system. The rumored high resolution EOS R body will most likely be announced later. This camera will replace the EOS 5Ds/5Ds R.

All Canon rumors are listed here.

Stay tuned…
