First Canon EOS 5Ds R Mark II suggestions appear

First Canon EOS 5Ds R Mark II Suggestions Appear
EOS 5Ds R Mark II coming in 2018?

It was already murmured that a Canon EOS 5Ds/5Ds R replacement might come in 2018. Now some specifications appeared as well. It’s suggested that the two current 5Ds models will become one, and that working prototypes of the EOS 5Ds R Mark II are already undergoing testing.

Let’s see the specifications:

  • No low pass filter.
  • All new 60.1mp image sensor.
  • A new type of low megapixel mode.
  • 4K video (video is not a big part of the cameras design).
  • Identical body to the EOS 5D Mark IV.
  • Focus peaking present, may appear first on another DSLR.
  • Expect all the other features such as DPAF, Wifi, Touchscreen and GPS.

All in all a list of plausible specifications. That Canon will abbandon the 5Ds (with low pass filter) also makes sense. The EOS 5Ds R sold much better than its sibling with low pass filter.

The announcement may happen in Q3/Q4 2018, i.e. In over a year possibly.  Take this with a grain of salt.

    not seeing 60mp and DPAF on this. DPAF costs around 1/3 to 1/2 EV of DR and canon’s been showing off a 120MP DSLR in a 5D body for the last 2 years and saying it’s in development and it’s coming.

    • CW Steve

      I agree. I think it will be well over 60MP.

      • there’s almost no market for 50+ megapixel DSLR photos. Why would they make something without a demand?

      • Rick

        I think people are doing a little D850 wish listing on the 5Dsr ..

        people are though forgetting this:

        and a sept 2018 timeline for this to come out.. makes a big deal of sense (3 years of development). Dual digic 7’s should take care of the fps issue. going to take alot of CFAST cards though ;)

    Here’s hoping Canon will include the focus stacking software of D850.
