Sigma Might Release Four Lenses For The Canon EOS R (tell us which one you’d like to see first)

Sigma Canon Eos R

Good news for Canon EOS R fans.

In a few weeks Sigma will for the first time announce lenses designed specifically for the Sony Full Frame Mirrorless system. These:

  • 35mm f/1.2
  • 45mm f/2.8
  • 12-24mm f/2.8
  • 24-70mm f/2.8

That’s not the entire story. We have been told (thanks) that Sigma will release these lenses also natively for the Canon EOS R full frame mirrorless system. The source couldn’t tell a timeframe for the RF mount versions. All we know is that they will be released “sometimes later” (i.e. after the release of the Sony versions).

That’s really good news. Sigma makes outstanding lenses and releasing those lenses for the EOS R system will be a great contribution to its lens ecosystem.

Major Canon Announcement Set For Next Week? (PowerShot G7 X Mark III, G5 X Mark II, Cinema camera)

Ibis Canon Rumors Canon Full Frame Mirrorless Canon PowerShot G7 X

We have been told that Canon is set to hold a major product announcement next week. Is the PowerShot G7 X Mark III eventually going to be announced?

We expect Canon to announce the PowerShot G7 X Mark III (all rumors), the PowerShot G5 X Mark II, possibly the Canon RF 24-240mm f4-6.3 IS lens for the EOS R system, and maybe a new Cinema camera. The new Cinema camera will likely be the EOS C300 Mark III. In favour of a possible Canon Cinema camera announcement is the fact that both the Canon EOS C200 and the EOS C300 Mark II just got a $1,000 price drop.

A new Canon EOS RP kit with the RF 24-240mm might also be announced. Do not expect the Canon EOS 90D, it will be announced later on, most likely in Fall 2019. We also think it’s unlikely a new EOS M model will be announced.

We have been told that Canon will announce the new gear on July 9 or 10, and the PowerShot G7 X Mark III seems to be the most likely gear to be announced.

All Canon rumors are listed here. Stay tuned.

Next f/2 Zoom For The Canon EOS R System Might Be The RF 16-28mm f/2L

Canon RF 28-70mm F/2L Rf Mount Canon Eos R

Last week a rumor surfaced suggesting Canon is working on a f/2 zoom lens for the Canon EOS R system.

A few days later another rumor surfaced suggesting it might be a RF 16-28mm f/2L lens that Canon is working on. This focal length would nicely complement the already released RF 28-70mm f/2L lens.

Take it with grain of salt, the Internet is flooded with low reliability EOS R rumors. And stay tuned for more intel.
