Major Canon product announcement coming September 2018?

Canon Rumorscanon rumors

We have been told (thanks) that Canon is set to announce something important in September 2018.

Now, what could this be? There are some candidates. First, we have the long rumored full frame mirrorless camera, which is alternatively rumored to be announced towards the end of 2018 (think Photokina), or in Q1 2019 (think Photokina again).

Next, there is the Canon EOS 7D Mark III (all rumors). The latest bit we got about the EOS 7D Mark III was saying we should expect an announcement between September 2018 and May 2019. Not very a exciting hint, to be honest.

There is also the Canon EOS 90D (all rumors), which I expected to be announced somewhen between Q4 2018 or Q1/Q2 2019.

Finally, it could also be the Canon EOS 5Ds R Mark II (all rumors) that’s going to be announced in September 2018. Here too there have been contradicting suggestions about the announcement.

If our source is right and Canon is set for an “important, major announcement” in September 2018, I can’t see other candidates, and I don’t think it may be about a new lens.

What do you think, did I miss something? Sound off in the comment section.

Canon EOS 5Ds Mark II now rumored to be a 2019 affair

Eos 5ds R Mark Ii

As we always stated, the replacement for the Canon EOS 5Ds and 5Ds R is not going to be announced in 2018. It’s met likely an announcement we will see not earlier than 2019. No surprisingly, this is now making rounds on the web.

Some people is trying to suggest Canon’s prototype 120MP APS-H sensor (or some sensor built on it) may  find its way into the next EOS 5Ds. That’s crap. The EOS 5Ds Mark II will have a resolution bump, but neither an APS-H sensor nor 120MP.

Stay tuned.
