First Canon EOS 5Ds R Mark II suggestions appear

Eos 5ds R Mark Ii
Replacement for the EOS 5Ds/5Ds R coming in 2019?

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.
