Ahead of Canon announcement: new leaked images, and more information about camera naming scheme

The Canon EOS M50 is named EOS Kiss M in Japan

A few days ahead of the announcement of Canon’s first 4K enabled MILC, a new SpeedLite, and two entry-level DSLRs, we can put order in the naming scheme Canon has chosen for their new gear (courtesy of Nokishita). We also have new images for your viewing pleasure.

  • The Canon EOS M50 (specifications) will be named EOS Kiss M in Japan (and Asia?). Two color options will be available, black and white. The kits will come with these lenses: 15-45mm, 18-150mm, and two double zoom kits. Shipment is expected for March 23, 2018
  • The Rebel T7 has this name in the US. It’s named EOS 2000D in Europe, EOS 1500D in China, and EOS Kiss X90 in Japan (Asia?). Why an entry-level camera needs four different monikers is sort of a mystery to me. May be to counter grey market import flows. There will be a body only option, and one with a kit lens. Shipping expected March 23, 2018.
  • As for the time of writing it’s not sure if the EOS 4000D (EOS 3000D in China) will be released in Japan.

Canon will also release an EOS M100 limited kit in pink by early April 2018 (Japan only, sorry for pink fans). The SpeedLite 470EX-AI is expected to ship late April 2018.

Canon will announce the new gear on February 25/26. Stay tuned.

The images below leaked at Nokishita


This is the Canon EOS 2000D, images and specifications

Canon EOS 2000DImages and a first set of specifications of the upcoming Canon EOS 2000D leaked at Nokishita.

  • 24.1 million pixels APS-C
  • DIGIC 4+
  • Full HD video
  • 3.0 type liquid crystal
  • ISO: 100-6400
  • Wi-Fi installed
  • Size: 129.0 × 101.3 × 77.6 mm
  • Weight: 475 g

The EOS 2000D is clearly more upmarket than the also leaked EOS 4000D.

The Canon EOS 4000D and EOS 2000D are the monikers for the EU market. The new Canon DSLRs will respectively be named EOS 1500D and EOS 3000D in China (and likely in the rest of Asia). The reason for this is probably known only to Canon’s sophisticated market strategists. However, we thought there were three new entry level DSLRs coming but it turns out it’s two new DSLRs (most likely).

Announcement is expected for next week. Stay tuned.

More Canon cameras to be announced soon (EOS 3000D and EOS 4000D)

Canon Rumors

The EOS M50 and the EOS 2000D aren’t the only new and upcoming Canon DSLRs. Two more DSLRs have been registered at the Eurasian Economic Commission.

Canon will soon announced the EOS 3000D (registration document) and the EOS 4000D (registration document). Both DSLRs will be available as body only option, and as kit with EF-S 18-55mm IS II and EF-S 18-55mm DC III lenses.

When will all this new gear be announced? We are pretty sure January (CES 2018) or February (CP+ 2018) 2018 are the months when Canon will announce the EOS M50, EOS 2000D, EOS 3000D, EOS 4000D to the general public.

Btw, what is Canon doing with all these 4-digit, entry-level DSLRs? Isn’t it a bit too much to offer so many entry-level DSLRs?


The Canon EOS M50 may be a midrange MILC, comes in 2 colors & 2 kits (and there is also an EOS 2000D/Rebel T7 coming)

Eos M50

Registrations of unreleased Canon gear showed up at the Eurasian Economic Commission. You can see the document above.

We already know that Canon will announce a new MILC named EOS M50. From the document above we learn the EOS M50 will come in two colors (black and white), and in two kits, respectively with the 15-45mm IS STM and the 18-150 IS STM lenses. The EOS M50 registration document can be seen here

Where will the EOS M50 be positioned in Canon’s mirrorless line-up? Given the two digits in the name, the the EOS M50 will most likely be positioned between the EOS M100 and the EOS M5/M6. A midrange MILC from Canon, so to say.

Another Canon camera was registered at the Eurasian Economic Commission, the EOS 2000D. Given that the EOS 2000D will replace the EOS 1300D (Rebel T6 in USA) it’s no surprise it comes as a kit with the  EF-S 18-55mm IS II lens. The EOS 2000D will most likely be named Rebel T7 in the States. The EOS 2000D registration document is here.
