Canon EOS R5

There have been rumors the Canon EOS R5 and Canon EOS R6 might get delayed because of the Coronavirus outbreak. It has neither been confirmed nor denied by Canon.

Now another rumor adds some bits. It’s reported that Canon will stick to the scheduled announcement dates. However, shipments could indeed be subject to a bunch of yet unknown factors that could have an influence on dates.

The same source also reports that Canon will likely push back announcements for new lenses. If this is caused by the virus outbreak is not reported.

Canon Rumor EOS M50 Full Frame Mirrorless

Here is a Canon rumor we got about the future of the EOS M mirrorless camera system.

A new source told us that Canon is planning to expand the EF-M lens lineup with five new lenses. The commercial success of the Canon EOS M50 seems to have motivated Canon to develop new EF-M lenses.

The five lenses that Canon might release over the next two years are:

  • EF-M 15mm f/2 STM
  • EF-M 52mm f/2 STM
  • EF-M 62mm f/4 Macro IS STM
  • EF-M 18-45mm f/2.8-4 IS STM
  • EF-M 100-300mm f/5.6-8 IS STM

According to the source, the EF-M 52mm f/2 STM and EF-M 100-300mm f/5.6-8 IS STM where initially planned to be released in late 2020. The Coronavirus outbreak and the disruptions in supply and manufacturing chains will make it likely that both these lenses will be released in 2021 along with the other lenses.

The next camera Canon will release is the game changing EOS R5. All we know about the R5 is listed here. More Canon rumor stuff is listed here.

High Resolution Canon EOS R Undergoing Testing Mentioned Again, 90MP Sensor

High Resolution Canon

Last week we got a suggestion about the rumored high resolution Canon EOS R. Our source suggested a 150MP resolution, which we posted with some cautionary advise.

A new rumor about the Canon high resolution EOS R model came up. The source of this rumor suggests that 1) the high resolution EOS R is already undergoing testing by selected photographers (we got the same suggestion last year), and 2) the resolution might be closer to what we got suggested last year, i.e. a resolution somewhere around 90MP. According to the source the resolution is “significantly lower than 150mp” and “just about doubles” the 45mp in the upcoming Canon EOS R5.

The only other bit that emerged so far is that the high resolution EOS R will not be that strong on the video features side, which is to expect from a high resolution camera.

This EOS R model might get announced at the beginning of 2021. The next Canon EOS R cameras that we expect to get announced are the EOS R5 and EOS R6.

Stay tuned.
