Has The Canon EOS M50 Mark II Also Been Discontinued?

Canon Eos R5 Canon Eos R8 Mark Ii Canon EOS Rf 24-50mm R6 Mark Ii Rf Mount Eos R6 Mark Ii Rf 300mm Rf 35mm Canon Eos R100 Rf 24mm F/1.8 Rf-s Canon Eos R7 Eos R100 Canon High Resolution Eos R R10 Eos C5 Canon Eos R1 Eos R5c Canon Rf 16mm Rf 35mm F/1.2L EF Lenses Tilt-shift Lenses Rumor

After reports about the discontinuation of the Canon EOS M200, now it is suggested the Canon EOS M50 Mark II is facing the same fate.

The Canon EOS M50 Mark II is one of Canon’s bestselling consumer MILCs. The fact that it might be discontinued finds us surprised. On the other hand, we expect Canon to release a very entry level EOS R mirrorless camera with APS-C sensor, the Canon EOS R100. Maybe Canon is really discontinuing the EOS M lineup.

Stay tuned…

Laowa Argus 25mm F0.95 APO Review (a serious lens, D. Abbott)

Laowa Argus 25mm

Just announced, the Laowa Argus 25mm F0.95 APO lens for APS-C sensors already has a full review.

At a glance:

  • Aperture Range: f/0.95 to f/11
  • 50mm (35mm Equivalent)
  • Internal Focus Design
  • 1 Aspherical Element, 1 ED Element
  • 3 Ultra-High Refraction Elements
  • 9 Aperture Blades
  • 62mm Filter Thread
  • Manual Focus

Dustin Abbott posted his exhaustive Laowa Argus 25mm F0.95 APO review. From his conclusion:

The Laowa Argus 25mm F0.95 APO is both similar and different than the Argus 35mm F0.95 full frame lens that I reviewed. The APO design does alter the formula, which results in more usable sharpness results at huge aperture values like F0.95.

It also means that the bokeh isn’t quite as soft, however, which might turn off some of the core audience that is interested in a lens like this.

These are all a matter of preference, however, and what is definite is that there is always room for more premium prime lenses for APS-C, a space that often gets overlooked.  This is a serious lens, and it is interesting to see Laowa bring some of their APO experience that they’ve developed in their macro lens designs into a more extreme lens like this.  You’ll have to determine for yourself whether or not the end result is something you’re looking for, but I will say this:  the list of F0.95 lenses with an Apochromatic design and a price tag of under $550 USD is a VERY short one.

Will Canon Announce The EOS R100 In 2023?

Canon Eos R5 Canon Eos R8 Mark Ii Canon EOS Rf 24-50mm R6 Mark Ii Rf Mount Eos R6 Mark Ii Rf 300mm Rf 35mm Canon Eos R100 Rf 24mm F/1.8 Rf-s Canon Eos R7 Eos R100 Canon High Resolution Eos R R10 Eos C5 Canon Eos R1 Eos R5c Canon Rf 16mm Rf 35mm F/1.2L EF Lenses Tilt-shift Lenses Rumor

Canon’s next EOS R model with an APS-C imaging sensor might not be far away, according to a new, low rated rumor. It might be the Canon EOS R100.

Rumor has it that Canon might announce the Canon EOS R100 in 2023. A set of alleged specifications also leaked:

  • 24.2 million pixel APS-C CMOS sensor
  • 4k 30p 8bit
  • There is no HDR PQ mode like the EOS R10
  • 14fps continuous shooting speed
  • 3.0-inch 1.04 million dot vari-angle monitor
  • Scheduled to be released Q1 or Q2 2023

Take it with a grain of salt. The source of the rumor is not very reliable.

The White Unicorn Is Delayed Again (Canon EOS R7 with APS-C sensor)

Canon Eos R5 Canon Eos R8 Mark Ii Canon EOS Rf 24-50mm R6 Mark Ii Rf Mount Eos R6 Mark Ii Rf 300mm Rf 35mm Canon Eos R100 Rf 24mm F/1.8 Rf-s Canon Eos R7 Eos R100 Canon High Resolution Eos R R10 Eos C5 Canon Eos R1 Eos R5c Canon Rf 16mm Rf 35mm F/1.2L EF Lenses Tilt-shift Lenses Rumor

Here are the latest about the Canon EOS R7, the white unicorn in the Canon rumors domain.

Rumored since the beginning of the EOS R era, the Canon EOS R7 is said to get announced within a few months, and then gets delayed again. We heard it being in the hand of selected photographers and undergoing field testing, then we heard it will be the next camera Canon is going to announce. But now we are told that it will come not earlier than Q4 2022.

The Canon EOS R7, featuring an APS-C imaging sensor, is a camera Canon will make sooner or later (likely, but we are still a bit skeptical). So why not start a rumor as early as possible. As bad as it can go, sooner or later the rumor will happen to be real. So far it has just been a continuous delaying of the possible announcement date.

Moreover, so far no specifications. Stay tuned for the next rumor. All Canon EOS R7 rumors are listed here.

The White Unicorn Is Back: Canon EOS R With APS-C To Come In 2022?

Canon EOS R With Aps-c

And here we are again. A new rumor about the Canon EOS R model with a crop sensor.

This time the rumor goes with high confidence, according to Canon Rumors, which gave it their highest ranking. I am still very skeptical about this to be real, but who am I to tell? Most about the EOS R with APS-C is still in the realm of the unknown, though:

The long rumoured APS-C RF mount camera from Canon is starting to appear more and more likely. […] have been told by an [sic] solid source that Canon is “definitely” releasing an APS-C RF mount camera in 2022.

[…] don’t know if we’re talking about something like an “EOS R7” or a camera (s) to take the place of the EOS M line.

Call me a disbeliever but I do still have a hard time to buy it. Guess I will be proven wrong. Time will tell.
