Latest murmuring on the web has it that Canon might have abandoned the development of a DSLR in favour of a mirrorless option.
The source of the rumor suggest that Canon ditched the replacement for the EOS 5Ds (R) in favour of a mirrorless option. This fits well with a rumor we got some weeks ago suggesting that the next EOS R model will feature a high resolution sensor in the range of the EOS 5Ds. A hint in this direction was also given by a Canon exec during an interview. It’s indeed very likely that Canon will release a high resolution full frame mirrorless camera instead of a DSLR.
For the time being the rumor mill is going a bit astray, struggling to get news. A lot of what we can expect 2019 has already been disclosed in interviews given by Canon execs. Even the future RF mount lenses roadmap has been disclosed early, which is unusual for Canon.
