Another Canon Camera Shows Up For Certification, And It Might Be An EOS R

More Canon gear appears at a certification agency. Based on the internal code-name we assume it’s an EOS R model.

The new camera has the moniker DS12856. Now, we know that Canon gear having internal codes starting with “DS” refer to an interchangable-lens camera. Since we do not expect any new EOS xxxD/Rebel, we might assume it refers to an upcoming EOS R model. Which one is the guess. The most likely candidate so fare seems to be the highly anticipated high resolution EOS R. It might also be the flagship EOS R model, but we are less confident on this one.

Stay tuned.

More Big White Telephoto Lenses Coming To The Canon EOS R System, Next Year


No surprise that after the leaks of the last days more telephoto lenses for the RF mount are rumored. Nothing to expect for this year, though.

Canon might be set to release an RF 300mm f/2.8L IS and an RF 500mm f/4L IS lens in 2021. Canon is migrating more and more of their EF lenses to the RF mount.

The RF 300mm f/2.8L IS and an RF 500mm f/4L IS are said to be much lighter and also shorter than their EF mount counterparts. A 300mm f/2.8L IS zoom might also be in the works.

More Unreleased Canon Gear Appears At Certification Authority (Speedlite EL-10?)

Speedlite El-10

More unreleased Canon gear appears at a Russian certification authority. Yesterday it was about three lenses, today it is about a new Canon Speedlite.

The new Canon Speedlite has the internal code DS401243. We think it might be the already rumored Speedlite EL-10. This new Speedlite flash would sit between the EL-1 ($1,099 )and EL-100 (currently discounted to $129), would make a lot of sense.

Stay tuned, stay safe.

Three Unreleased Canon Lenses Show Up For Certification

Canon Lenses

Three new, unreleased Canon lenses showed up at a certification authority in Russia.

So far we have no idea what these Canon lenses are about, nor for what mount type they have although it seems safe to assume the lenses are for the EOS R system.

The lenses have the following internal codes:

  • 4857C005
  • 5053C005
  • 5054C005

When gear appears at certification authorities it usually a matter of weeks or months before the announcement. Any idea what these lenses could be?
