Canon Working On Another f/2 Zoom Lens For The Canon EOS R System?

Canon Eos R

Another low ranked rumor surfaced form the web.

Canon might be working (even “hard working”) on another zoom lens with f/2 for the EOS R system. There is already an f/2 soon lens for the EOS R system, the remarkable Canon RF 28-70mm f/2L.

No hints on the focal length of the rumored lens. Actually we are still waiting for Canon to release a series of EOS R lenses they have already announced, among them what is usually referred as the “holy trinity” of lenses: RF 15-35mm f/2.8L IS, RF 24-70mm f/2.8L IS and RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS.

Please take this with a solid grain of salt. We (and it seems others) are flooded with unreliable EOS R related rumors. It’s the hype of the moment.

Stay tuned.

Canon Set To Announce 300mm Lens For EOS R With New And Unique Feature?

Canon Eos R

After the rumor about a 500mm telephoto lens for the Canon EOS R full frame mirrorless system, a 300mm lens rumor surfaced from the web.

It’s suggested Canon might announce a 300mm f/2.8L IS lens for the EOS R system along with the above mentioned 500mm lens. The announcement is expected somewhen in 2020. This 300mm f/2.8 IS lens for EOS R is said to sport a “new and unique feature for super telephoto lenses”. No hints what the feature is about. Both lenses could be announced along with the rumored EOS-1D X equivalent EOS R model.

It seems 2020 will be an important year for the EOS R ecosystem with lots of lenses that are said to be announced. In the meantime we are still waiting for Canon to release some RF mount lenses they have already announced (development).

All Canon rumors are listed here.

A Professional, EOS-1D X Equivalent Canon EOS R Model Might Come Earlier Than Expected

Canon Eos R

While we are still waiting for the high resolution Canon EOS R model, the rumor mill has suggestions about the EOS R model coming after.

Apparently Canon has decided to accelerate the development of a professional EOS R model, i.e. a mirrorless camera that can compare with Canon’s flagship EOS-1D X Mark II.

The same rumor suggests this EOS-1D X equivalent full frame mirrorless camera could be announced along with the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III, and it could happen in the first or second quarter of 2020. To be honest, Canon itself said they might make such a camera.

Our take: take it with a grain of salt. EOS R related rumors abound and so far the reliability is very low. The source of the rumor also ranks it low.

We now know what gear Canon is set to announced next. Stay tuned.

Canon Eos Rp

Canon is set to announce new gear soon.

According to Nokishita, this is what we can expect in the near future:

  • The Canon PowerSHot G7 X Mark III
  • Canon RF 24-240mm f4-6.3 IS USM lens (EOS R mirrorless system)
  • Canon EW-78F lens hood
  • A new Canon EOS RP kit with the Canon RF 24-240mm f4-6.3 IS USM lens

The PowerShot G7 X Mark III already leaked through certification authorities, images also have already leaked.

I’m glad to see that Canon will soon release an affordable zoom for their EOS R mirrorless system. That will for sure be very appreciated by users.

Nikon Set To Launch A $900 Full Frame Mirrorless Camera?

Full Frame Mirrorless

Nikon might be set to launch a full frame mirrorless camera with a price below $1,000.

That’s what Japanese news site Nikkei reports (machine translated):

Nikon will introduce a new mid-price mirrorless camera product in fiscal 2019. The same interchangeable lens can be used in the product that corresponds to a sister model such as the high-end model “Z7” launched by the company in the autumn of 2006. It is expected that the price will be in the 100,000 yen range, which is easier for the general consumer to pick up than the leading 200,000 to 400,000 yen model. The aim is to develop the demand of users other than existing enthusiasts.

100,000 Yen are roughly $900. That would be a killer price for a full frame mirrorless camera. The only real entry-level FF mirrorless camera currently on the market, the Canon EOS RP, is priced $1,299.

A full frame MILC at $900 would take the market by storm. What do you think?
