Report: Canon EOS 80D/7DII Replacement and EOS M5 Mark II Next From Canon?

EOS 80d Eos M5

A new report on the series of rumor outlets says that Canon is about to replace a mid-level DSLR. The same report also mentions what we are mentioning since a while now, that the replacement for the Canon EOS 80D and the EOS 7D Mark II could be one camera for both.

The report also claims what we’ve already posted many times, that the replacement for the EOS M5 will be announced within 2019.

So far no reliable information have been leaked about the specification for the EOS 80D/7DII replacement.

Stay tuned.

Canon EOS 80D And EOS 7D Mark II To Be Replaced By One New APS-C DSLR? [CW2]

Canon Rumors Full Frame Mirrorless Camera Canon Eos R

We have been told (thanks) that Canon will not release a replacement for the Canon EOS 80D and the EOS 7D Mark II. Instead, there will be one model to replace both.

So, no EOS 90D nor EOS 7D Mark III? The suggestion comes from a new source, so take it with a grain of salt. It’s entirely possible, though. Given the success Canon’s mirrorless cameras are having (both EOS M and EOS R systems) it’s plausible that Canon starts investing less in APS-C DSLR development. Moreover, both replacements are long overdue.

If this rumor is reliable, expect a new Canon APS-C flagship with plenty of features, combining the best of the Canon EOS xxD series (e.g. tiltable screen) with the best of the EOS 7D series (e.g. weather sealing, sturdiness), and an entirely newly developed sensor.

We are rather cautious with rumors flooding our inbox after a major Canon announcement, since in our experience they rarely are reliable. However, it’s not the first time we hear about Canon planing to put the EOS xxD and EOS 7D line-ups together. Given the sheer amount of more or less entry-level oriented Canon APS-C DSLRs, it definitely possible.

Stay tuned.

Unreleased Canon Gear Leakes Through Certification Authority (EOS 80D and EOS 5Ds replacements?)

Canon Rumors Canon Full Frame Mirrorless

Nokishita posted a new list of camera codes used in certification authorities.

Note that both DS126751 and DS126761 are either DSLRs or full frame mirrorless cameras. One might be the replacement for the EOS 5Ds(R) or the rumored high resolution EOS R model. It’s suggested that both models have a full frame sensor, either in a DSLR or a MILC. However, DS126761 seems to refer to a more entry level oriented camera and thus may well point to the Canon EOS 80D or Rebel SL2 replacements (maybe something got lost in translation?). Both are expected to be announced in the first half of 2019. P2355 refers to a PowerShot camera and might be the PowerShot G7X Mark III. No signs of the EOS 7D Mark III here.

Canon EOS 90D to be announced before end of 2018?

EOS 80d Eos M5

After a while, we got a new Canon EOS 90D rumor.

Latest has it that the EOS 90D is the next DSLRs Canon is set to announce, and that this may well happen before the end of 2018.

We had contrasting rumors in the past, suggesting a 2018 announcement first and a 2019 announcement after that.

If you have a look at Wikipedia, you’ll see that the interval between Canon xxD models has been around 3 years for the latest models.

  • Canon EOS 40D – August 2007
  • Canon EOS 50D – October 2008
  • Canon EOS 60D – August 2010
  • Canon EOS 70D – July 2013
  • Canon EOS 80D – February 2016

Given the fast pace the industry is evolving, I wouldn’t be surprised if Canon decides to put the EOS 90D (all rumors) on market before the next big holiday shopping season. The Canon EOS 80D was and still is highly popular and having a replacement ready for Christmas wouldn’t hurt Canon.

However, there other candidate DSLRs for an announcement in 2018, who may not be likely but still possible.

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. Personally, I’m starting to think this will be a 2019 affair.

Though less likely than the ones above, 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.

Stay tuned.
