Canon EOS-1D X Mark III Undergoing Field Testing?

Eos-1d X Mark Ii

Rumor has it Canon has started to field test the replacement for the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II.

The EOS-1D X Mark II was released in 2016 so it seems a bit early for an announcement. However, being this the top professional Canon DSLR it wouldn’t be strange if Canon spends a lot of time testing it.

Our bet is Canon will announce the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III before the Olympic games in 2020. So far no specifications have leaked.

Stay tuned.

Tamron Set To Announce 35-150mm f/2.8-4 VC USD And 35mm f/1.4 USD Lenses Very Soon

The two lenses are the 35-150 f/2.8-4 VC USD and SP 35mm f/1.4 USD. Both lenses will be available for Canon and Nikon mounts. According to the source, the Tamron sp 35mm f/1.4 USD aims to be the best 35mm lens ever.

Canon EOS 80D And EOS 7D Mark II To Be Replaced By One New APS-C DSLR? [CW2]

Canon Rumors Full Frame Mirrorless Camera Canon Eos R

We have been told (thanks) that Canon will not release a replacement for the Canon EOS 80D and the EOS 7D Mark II. Instead, there will be one model to replace both.

So, no EOS 90D nor EOS 7D Mark III? The suggestion comes from a new source, so take it with a grain of salt. It’s entirely possible, though. Given the success Canon’s mirrorless cameras are having (both EOS M and EOS R systems) it’s plausible that Canon starts investing less in APS-C DSLR development. Moreover, both replacements are long overdue.

If this rumor is reliable, expect a new Canon APS-C flagship with plenty of features, combining the best of the Canon EOS xxD series (e.g. tiltable screen) with the best of the EOS 7D series (e.g. weather sealing, sturdiness), and an entirely newly developed sensor.

We are rather cautious with rumors flooding our inbox after a major Canon announcement, since in our experience they rarely are reliable. However, it’s not the first time we hear about Canon planing to put the EOS xxD and EOS 7D line-ups together. Given the sheer amount of more or less entry-level oriented Canon APS-C DSLRs, it definitely possible.

Stay tuned.

No More Than 6 Canon RF Lenses Coming In 2019

Canon RF Lenses

Latest has it that Canon might announce two more RF lenses beyond the six lenses we already know they will announce. The rumor isn’t entirely clear about when Canon might announce these two lenses, citing some plans Canon might have had in the recent past and then abandoned, and considering 2020 too as the year for a possible announcement.

The focal lengths Canon might have up their sleeve are the RF 100-400mm f/3.5-5.6L IS USM and RF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS. Both are supported by patent applications filed by Canon.

It’s pretty clear that Canon takes their EOR R system very seriously, and that the company will invest a lot in the development of the eco system (i.e. lenses). A lot of new RF lenses are set to hit the market in the next years, that’s for sure. For the same reason a lot of RF lenses related rumors will hit the Web in the next months.

Latest on the EOS RP is listed here. Hands-on and first impression reviews are here. A rather interesting interviews with Canon execs is featured here. The EOS RP user manual can be downloaded.

Canon Has An EOS R Model With IBIS On Their Agenda


The image on top shows a slide that was presented during the Canon EOS R announcement/presentation (so we were told).

If real it might give us reason to think Canon is indeed working on a full frame mirrorless camera with IBIS (In Body Image Stabilisation). Canon execs always stated that optical IS (i.e. image stabilisation in the lens) is the better technology. It seems they are about to change their mind, or maybe their just responding to user requests.

The Canon EOS RP, the company’s first entry level full frame mirrorless camera was announced yesterday. And it has a price that we didn’t expect from Canon. In an interview with Imaging Resource, Canon execs stated clearly that the EOS RP has the same internals as the EOS 6D Mark II, something we reported over two years ago.

I wonder when we will see a Canon mirrorless camera with IBIS, in one, two, three years?
