What’s Coming Next From Canon?

Canon Rumors Full Frame Mirrorless Camera Canon Eos R

After the announcement of the Canon EOS 90D and EOS M6 Mark II, what’s coming next?

There is gear we know is scheduled to release. Let’s see.

Where is the high resolution Canon EOS R camera?

Rumored to be released in Fall 2019, there still are no reliable information. Suggestions we got say the high res EOS R will have a resolution much higher than the Sony a7R IV (61MP), another rumor we got suggested a resolution around 80MP. Will this EOS R model be released in 2019? We still think it will

And what about the “pro/sport oriented” EOS R camera?

In this case we have even less information, and no reliable data so far. What we know is that it should be a camera equivalent to the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II. Another bit we know, is that it will most likely be released in 2020, maybe before the Summer Olympics.

Will the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III be released in 2020?

Yes, this seems to be a sure thing. The Canon EOS-1D X Mark III will be announced before the Summer Olympics 2020. Field testing is rumored since February. No specifications have been leaked so far.

What about the Canon EOS 7D Mark III?

We are still investigating the claim that the Canon EOS 90D replaces both the EOS 80D and EOS 7D Mark II. The EOS 90D got some features previously featured on the 7D series, like a joystick, magnesium alloy, better weather sealing (compared to EOS 80D). For the time being it is not entirely clear what the future of the 7D lineup will be. On the other hand the EOS 90D is not advanced enough to be seen as a full fledged EOS 7D Mark II replacement. Another thing we wonder is: will Canon give up the highly popular 7D series? Seems unlikely to some degree.

Will there be an EOS R model with APS-C sensor?

No. This is an insistent and silly rumor that won’t disappear. A rumor not making any sense. Canon has a well selling APS-C mirrorless lineup with the EOS M system, and there is no reason to believe it will disappear. The EOS M6 Mark II has just been released and it’s common opinion that Canon is taking the EOS M system seriously.

Will there be more lenses for the EOS M system?

Yes, though we have yet no reliable intel to share.

Will there be a replacement for the Canon EOS M5?

Rumor has it that no, there will not. We are still investigating.

Will there be more lenses for the Canon EOS R system?

Yes, plenty. Canon is heavily investing in the EOS R system. We found a lot of patent applications for Canon RF mount lenses. Two new lenses have just been released, more are set to come. We are still waiting for Canon to release already announced Canon RF lenses.

And lenses for the Canon EF mount?

Canon stated that they will not continue EF lens development in 2019 (and maybe 2020). The EOS R system is where Canon is now investing most R&D resources.

What else can we expect?

The Canon C500 Mark II is coming, likely in 2020. One more Canon Cinema camera is likely. Some PowerShots are also likely for 2020.

Stay tuned, more to come.

We already knew a lot about the upcoming Canon EOS 90D. Today we know some more bits.

This May Be The Pricing Of The Upcoming New Canon RF Lenses

RF 24-70mm

We expect Canon to announce three new Canon RF lenses for the Canon EOS R system, RF 15-35mm f/2.8L IS, RF 24-70mm f/2.8L IS, and RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS.

These lenses will most likely be announced along with the Canon EOS 90D and the EOS M6 Mark II. All are expected to be announced on August 28th, 2019. Specifications (90d | M6 Mark II) and promotional videos (90D | M6 Mark II) for both cameras have already leaked.

The suggested prices for the three new RF lenses appear to have leaked in Thailand, and so starting from the price in Thai Baht we can get an idea about where the US$ prices will be.

  • RF 15-35mm f/2.8L IS 82,600 THB – $2,499
  • RF 24-70mm f/2.8L IS 82,600 THB – $2,499
  • RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS 93,500 THB – $2,799

These lenses have already been announced by Canon, and prototypes have been showcased around the world. For sure these will not be inexpensive lenses.

The same source suggests the RF 15-35mm f/2.8L IS and RF 24-70mm f/2.8L IS lenses will start shipping in October 2019, the RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS lens will be available in December 2019.

Stay tuned for more to come….
