Canon EOS 5D Mark IV Last Of Its Kind, No EOS 5D Mark V?

Eos 5d Mark V

A few days ago we got a rumor suggesting the Canon EOS 90D and EOS 7D Mark II will not get a replacement. It seems we might see no Canon EOS 5D Mark V either.

A new and rather confident rumor suggests Canon will not release a 5D Mark V to replace the 5D Mark IV. The source of the rumor says Canon already stopped the development of the 5D Mark V some time ago. The source also claims that the EOS 5D lineup will not live on as a mirrorless version. Wasn’t the EOS R5 intended as a mirrorless EOS 5D series equivalent?

While we are somewhat inclined to believe Canon will not replace the EOS 90D and 7D II, we have a harder time with the EOS 5D Mark IV. This is a highly popular camera among professional photographers, and they are notoriously less fond of mirrorless technology than your average camera user. The EOS 5D Mark IV was announced almost 4 years ago and would be ready for a replacement. Less than a year ago there was a rumor suggesting the 5D V was on “Canon’s roadmap”.

So, no Canon EOS 5D Mark V?

The Sony a7S III Hasn’t Yet Been Released And Already Someone Compares It To The Canon EOS R5

EOS R5 Firmware Update Sony A7s Iii

The Canon EOS R5 is definitely an exciting camera. For a YouTuber it must be so exciting that he compares the R5 to the yet-to-be released Sony a7S III.

Max Yuryev takes the rumored specifications for the Sony a7S III (from well informed site Sony Alpha Rumors) and does a tentative comparison with the EOS R5. I’m not even sure the EOS R5 and a7S III are similar cameras with similar purposes.

Canon EOS 90D and EOS 7D Mark II Last Of Their Kind?

Canon Eos 90d Canon Aps-c Firmware Dynamic Range

Is the Canon EOS 90D the last iteration of the highly popular EOS xxD lineup? We got a tip pointing in that direction.

Canon will not replace the EOS 90D with a new model, we have been told. Instead, Canon will release a new APS-C mirrorless camera as replacement. The source didn’t tell if this new camera will be an EOS M or an EOS R model.

Not the first time a rumor suggests the end of the long running EOS xxD lineup. In the past we had a rumor suggesting there would be no EOS 90D and a MILC instead. It didn’t happen.

And the Canon EOS 7D series? Rumors suggests Canon might see a mirrorless future here too. This could get interesting since the EOS 7D lineup was always intended for the pros who wanted or needed an APS-C body (for instance to get more reach with their telephoto lenses). Canon has to release a truly amazing APS-C mirrorless camera to replace the EOS 7D Mark II (and the EOS 90D too, for that matter).

A recent rumor suggests an EOS R camera with APS-C sensor might be on Canon’s radar. Rumors that Canon might release an APS-C camera in the EOS R lineup are surfacing since a while. 2021 might be the year for such a camera.

I’m particularly fond of the Canon EOS xxD lineup. The EOS 40D was my first “serious” DSLR. A great camera, I still have it. Then came the EOS 70D and later the EOS 80D, the latter being my favorite all-round DSLR.

Btw, how would the next iteration of the xxD lineup be named, Canon EOS 95D? EOS 100D is already taken (the Rebel SL1 is named EOS 100D in Europe).

Stay tuned.

ZY Optics Announced Mitakon Speedmaster 50mm f/0.95, designed for Canon EF

Mitakon Speedmaster 50mm F/0.95

ZY Optics announced the Mitakon Speedmaster 50mm f/0.95 lens. The Speedmaster 50mm f/0.95 was designed for the Canon EF mount and will sell at $799.

The Speedmaster 50mm f/0.95 is available also for the Canon EOS R system at $679.

Press release:

ZY Optics releases the Mitakon Speedmaster 50mm f/0.95, especially designed for Canon EF cameras.

World’s only f/0.95 lens designed for DSLR systems in production

Zhongyi Optics (ZY Optics) have released the new Mitakon Speedmaster 50mm f/0.95 for Canon EF mount cameras. The new 50mm lens has a different optical design from the mirrorless version and it is currently the world’s only f/0.95 lens designed for DSLR cameras. Due to the large size of the rear element, the new 50mm f/0.95 lens cannot be made into Nikon version unfortunately.

Offering a natural 50mm perspective along with an ultra-fast f/0.95 maximum aperture, the Mitakon 50mm f/0.95 is a compact prime characterized by its bright f/0.95 aperture to suit working in low-light conditions. It also affords a great degree of control over depth-of-field for
isolating subjects from the background and producing selective focus effects.

A carefully-designed 12 elements in 6 groups optics system with 1pc of HRI (High Refractive Index) & 5pcs of UD (Ultra-low dispersion) elements successfully minimizes the chromatic aberrations and delivers exceptional image quality.

An eleven-blade diaphragm helps to produce a softly diffused out-of-focus rendering (bokeh). The enclosure of the lens is made of metal to strengthen its durability. A 82mm filter thread is equipped for mounting screw-in filters easily.

ZY Optics have been releasing f/0.95 lenses for different camera systems. A mirrorless design of 50mm f/0.95 (III) had been released in 2019 and is available in Sony FE, Canon RF & Nikon Z mounts.

Pricing & Availability

Mitakon Speedmaster 50mm f/0.95 Canon EF is now available to ship and purchase at ZY Optics official website (http://www.zyoptics.net/). The Recommended Retail price (before tax) is USD 799/pc.
