A Japanese site interviewed a Canon exec. When asked about a possible Canon EOS R7…
A trusted source told me that the EOS 5D Mark IV and EOS 6D Mark II will feature a sensor with Canon’s Dual Pixel CMOS Auto-Focus technology. Apparently Dual Pixel AF will not come with the EOS-1D X’s next iteration. The same source told me that the EOS 6D Mark II will feature a tilt-able display.
Dual Pixel AF on Canon’s next enthusiast and semi-pro full-frame DSLRs makes sense. First, Dual Pixel AF is a groundbreaking technology that has to and will be featured on all next Canon DSLRs. Second, Dual Pixel AF is a videographers dream. The 5D Mark IV will be committed to videography as the 5Ds before. Third, Canon just announced their first STM zoom lens with EF mount (i.e. for FF DSLRs), the EF 24-105mm IS STM; Dual Pixel AF and STM lenses work perfectly together. The fact that there is a full-frame STM zoom lens gives some credit to the rumor.
What do you think?
