Two New Canon EOS R Cameras Coming in 2019 (entry-level and professional)?

Canon Eos R

Is Canon set to announce two Canon EOS R cameras in 2019? It’s likely.

We already reported a rumor we got, stating Canon will announce a high resolution EOS R camera, i.e. a EOS R body with a sensor resolution around 50MP. This rumor was indirectly confirmed by a Canon exec in an interview.

The rumor that surfaced a few days ago differs somewhat from what we have been told. It’s suggested Canon will announce a more entry-level oriented EOS R camera, positioned below the actual Canon EOS R, and then a more professional EOS R body that’s close to the EOS-1D X Mark II. The former should be announced first, the latter will be build for speed and video. However, the more “professional” EOS R might also be the high resolution model we told you about.

Rumors about Canon’s plans with the EOS R lineup abound on the web, This rumor comes from the more reliable spots on the Internet. We think there is high probability it’s going to happen. Both an entry-level and a professional EOS R body are also what we expect Canon to deliver in the next year(s).

The Canon EOS 7D Mark II Shows Up As Discontinued at B&H Photo (EOS 7D Mark III Rumor)

Canon Eos 7d Mark Iii

Thanks Peter.

Not that we didn’t know Canon will announce the Canon EOS 7D Mark III soon.

B&H Photo lists the Canon EOS 7D Mark II body only option as discontinued. First signs were already visible in April 2018.

Yes, it is a sign the Canon EOS 7D Mark III is coming (all rumors). The next announcement date candidate is ahead of Photokina 2019 (in May 2019), so it would be Q1 2019. We give it a 50% reliability at the time of writing. So far very little has leaked about the EOS 7D Mark III. All we know comes from leaked data from wireless certification authorities.

I wonder if the Canon EOS 7D Mark III will eventually have a tiltable display. There will also be an obvious increase in sensor resolution. What else can we expect?

Stay tuned, there is more to come…

The Next Canon EOS R Will Be A High Resolution Model

Canon Eos R

We have been told that the next Canon EOS R system camera to be announced will sport a high resolution sensor.

This makes sense. Nikon announced two full frame mirrorless cameras, the Z6 and Z7. The Nikon Z7 is the high resolution model, featuring a 45MP sensor. It’s to expect Canon will follow the same path. The Canon EOS R has a 30MP sensor (the Nikon Z6 has 24,5MP).

A Canon EOS R model with a sensor around 50MP has to be considered plausible..

This rumor doesn’t come entirely as a surprise. A more pro-oriented EOS R model is rumored since a while, and it seems just straight that Canon might feature a sensor with a resolution similar to the EOS 5Ds. In this way Canon could replicate their highly successful EOS 5D line-up with mirrorless technology. Moreover, all the Canon RF lenses appear to have been build with a 50MP sensor in mind.

It’s still unclear when the next Canon EOS R is going to be announced. Ahead of Photokina 2019 (May 2019) seems to be a good candidate announcement.

Stay tuned, there is more to come.

The Canon EOS M5 Mark II and EOS M6 Mark II Are Coming in 2019

Canon Eos M5 Mark Ii Mirrorless

Rumor has it that Canon might announce two new Canon EOS M cameras in 2019.

We can confirm this. As we wrote before, the Canon EOS M5 and Canon EOS M6 are scheduled to be replaced. We know from different sources that we will see a Canon EOS M5 Mark II and a Canon EOS M6 Mark II in 2019.

Most likely the EOS M5 Mark II will be announced first. We are not yet sure if it will be announced before Photokina 2019 (May 2019) but various hints point to Q1 2019 for the announcement.

It’s also rumored that the Canon EOS M5 Mark II (all rumors) will sport 4K video with Dual Pixel Auto-Focus, something we definitely hope to see.

Canon is continuously expanding their EOS M system, and there is no doubt the EOS M system is here to stay. Rumors about a Canon EOS R with APS-C sensor shouldn’t keep you awake at night. This will not happen. Btw, the Canon EOS M50 is the best selling mirrorless camera in Japan. I just wish Canon would be a bit quicker when it comes to new lenses. That’s something they may learn from Fuji and their excellent lens ecosystem.

Despite still having a rather limited lens offering for the EOS M system, it’s clear that the company believes in it. The latest lens for the system is the Canon EF-M 32mm f/1.4 STM.

Is The Next, Higher Tier Canon EOS R Coming in Q1 2019? [CW2]

Rumor has it that Canon might announce a “full-blown” EOS R camera around February 2019, ahead of Photokina 2019.

We recommend you take it with a huge grain of salt. While entirely possible, we have some doubts and didn’t get any hint let alone a confirmation from our sources.

There are no specifications at this point and we also have a bit of a hard time to figure out what a “full-blown” EOS R might be. Something on EOS-1D X Mark II level?

What we know is that Canon is set to announce three new RF lenses in 2019.

Stay tuned.
