Canon EOS R Replacement In The Pipeline? (won’t be the R Mark II, though)

Canon EOS R With Aps-c

Is Canon readying the release of the replacement for the original EOS R? A new rumor suggests so.

Canon might release the replacement for the EOS R towards the end of 2022 or early 2023, according to the rumor. This EOS R replacement “will sit below” the EOS R6 ad will not be a new version of Canon’s entry level full-frame model, the EOS RP. The previously rumored “ $899 full-frame R series camera” is now said to have disappeared because of the usual supply chain issues.

Stay tuned.

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.

Canon RF 100mm f/2.8L IS Macro Review (great lens with some added weirdness)

RF 100mm F/2.8L Macro IS Review

Here is a new Canon RF 100mm f/2.8L IS Macro Review. The Canon RF 100mm f/2.8L IS Macro is a lens getting many positive reviews. A rather interesting lens for any EOS R owner.

At a glance:

  • RF-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
  • 1.4x Magnification with Autofocus
  • Aperture Range: f/2.8 to f/32
  • Minimum Focusing Distance: 10.2″
  • Super Spectra Coating
  • Smooth and Quiet Auto Focus
  • Optical Image Stabilization; Hybrid IS
  • Control Ring for Direct Setting Changes
  • 9-Blade Diaphragm
  • Weather-Sealed Construction

The experts at Optical Limits posted their Canon RF 100mm f/2.8L IS Macro review. From their conclusion:

The Canon RF 100mm f/2.8 L USM macro IS is a great lens with some added weirdness. Optically, it is capable of delivering very sharp images straight from f/2.8 – just as you would expect from a moderately fast macro lens. Image distortions are basically negligible even without correction. Lateral CAs are on the low side as well and can be easily corrected anyway. This can’t be said of the raw vignetting which is comparatively high at f/2.8 so auto-correction should remain activated. The quality of the bokeh is generally pleasing with a smooth background blur and nicely rendered highlights. The foreground blur isn’t ideally rendered but that’s usually of lesser concern. Bokeh lovers may also like the SA feature on the lens but, to be honest, for most of us, it’ll remain an oddity that you have to pay for without using it. Maybe video makers can appreciate it more than photographers. That being said – the massive focus-breathing doesn’t help with videos. A bit concerning are the RSAs when stopping down – focus shifts aren’t helpful at very close focus distances. It’s something to keep in mind when shooting at least.

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

Beware of rumors surfacing a few days after Canon announced a new camera. They usually are not reliable, especially not when they are long running and constantly rescheduled like the high resolution Canon EOS R rumor.

However, a new rumor with high confidentiality surfaced, suggesting Canon might announce a high resolution EOS R model in 2023. A high resolution EOS R model is rumored since the inception of the EOS R system. It’s a “sooner or later is has to happen”-rumor, as we saw many others in the last 12 years.

The high resolution EOS R is said to get announced in the first half of 2023 with a development announcement coming towards the end of 2022. If you want to browse all “high resolution EOS R” rumors of the last years have a look here. Yeah, no doubt Canon will sooner or later release such a camera.

Stay tuned for more rumors galore, and take everything with a huge grain of salt.

Canon RF 100-400mm f/5.6-8 IS Review (super lens, highly competitive price)

RF 100-400mm F/5.6-8 IS Review

Here is a Canon RF 100-400mm f/5.6-8 IS review. One of the less expensive lens with an exceptional performance.

At a glance:

  • RF-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
  • Aperture Range: f/5.6 to f/45
  • One UD Element, One Aspherical Element
  • Super Spectra Coating
  • Nano USM AF Motor
  • Maximum Magnification: 0.41x at 400mm
  • Optical Image Stabilizer
  • Customizable Control Ring
  • Rounded 9-Blade Diaphragm

ePhotozine posted their full Canon RF 100-400mm f/5.6-8 IS review. And like the other reviews we featured, this one too is rather fond of the lens. They gave the Canon RF 100-400mm f/5.6-8 IS a 4.5/5 rating and a “Highly Recommended”. From their conclusion:

Canon RF users are being treated here with a super lens, with real pulling power to bring in those more distant subjects, plus the bonus of having an impressive close-up ability. And all at a highly competitive price. If only there was weather resistance then it really would be hard to beat.

Lenses that go beyond 300mm have always had a serious price penalty, but it does look as though this is now breaking down and bringing that 400mm reach more within a reasonable budget.

For the Canon RF user, this lens looks to be a bit of a no-brainer, with most of the right features, the right quality and the right price. ‘Highly Recommended’.

Read the review at ePhotozine…

I agree that this lens is a no-brainer for every EOS R owner. More Canon RF 100-400mm f/5.6-8 IS review stuff is listed here.
