A lot of lenses coming for the Canon EOS R full frame mirrorless camera system. Here is an updated Canon RF lens roadmap.

How To Use A Giant IMAX Lens On A Canon EOS R, And Shoot Portraits

Imax Lens

Weel, this is an exotic setup for a mirrorless camera. An enormous IMAX lens used on a Canon EOS R, and to shoot street portaits.

Coming from the folks at The Slanted Lens, the video below shows how you can adapt an IMAX lens o your EOS R, and what kind of pictures you might shot with it. The focus is on street photography and portraits.

What the heck is that huge lens? That Crazy Huge Lens is an IMAX Lens. You will be surprised at the cool street portraits we got with this thing. Take a look at how Jay P rigged this with his Canon EOS R camera and the amazing results.

Not bad, eh? Might be a nice DIY weekend project.

These Are The Canon Cameras We Can Expect To Get Released In 2021

Canon Cameras

2021 has just started, we all hope it will be better than 2020. And some might also be curious to learn what Canon cameras might get released in 2021. A curated list of the top 2020 rumors has been compiled for your rumors fun and speculations.

An EOS R camera with an APS-C sensor

While we are still having a hard time to buy it, the long running rumor of an EOS R model still surfaces every now and then. Indeed, this rumor started the week after the EOS R was released. Such a possibility was denied by a Canon exec in an interview back in 2018. Everything is possible but for the time being we are not sold on this rumor nor on the imminent dead of the EOS M system. Time will tell and we will see if the rumor gets moved to the next upcoming year as it happened so far. In other words: we do not think this camera will get released in 2021.

High-resolution RF body

Another long running rumor, but one that definitely is going to happen soon. We were first to leak it and there is also a related patent. Moreover, it was later confirmed by a Canon exec. So far this camera is rumored to have a 90MP imaging sensor that can go up to 300MP with pixel shift. The high resolution EOS R was dubbed EOS R5s by the rumor mills community.

Two entry level EOS R bodies

These camera will replace the EOS R and the EOS RP. No specifications have leaked so far but is seems safe to assume that they will both be placed below the EOS R6, with one of them to sell at less than the EOS RP, as another Canon exec suggested. Rumored price tage are $899 and $1499, respectively. Not sure if both will be seen in 2021. Take it with a grain of salt.

An EOS-1D X tier EOS R body

Another rumor with a high chance to become reality in 2021. Canon will release a flagship EOS R camera that is on EOS-1D X level. This too was already confirmed by a Canon exec. The camera was dubbed EOS R1 by the rumor outlets name giving squads.

Canon EOS C50 and EOS C90

Two new Canon Cinema cameras with RF mount. The EOS C50 might come in the first half of 2021, the other one’s release is yet unknown. Canon already released a Cinema camera with RF mount, the EOS C70, and it’s safe more will follow.

A Canon 8K video camera

Already teased many times, this one might definitely get announced in 2021.

So, while these is nothing new we hope you appreciate the sum up of what Canon cameras might come in 2021. Be aware that both the global pandemic and a recent fire at a supply factory might delay some of the announcements. Let us know what you think about this rich and large (and possible) Canon release schedule

Canon RF 24-105mm f/4-7.1 IS STM Review (best RF kit zoom)

Canon RF 24-105mm F/4-7.1 IS STM Review

Here is a Canon RF 24-105mm f/4-7.1 IS STM review. The Canon RF 24-105mm f/4-7.1 STM is a budget lens for the EOS R system.

It’s good to see that Canon is releasing many budget oriented lenses for the EOS R system. And it’s also good to know that those lenses perform very good, despite not being boutique lenses.

CameraLab’s Gordon Laing posted his Canon RF 24-105mm f/4-7.1 IS STM review, and he is rather positive on this lens. From his conclusion:

The Canon RF 24-105 f/4-7.1 STM is the budget kit zoom the EOS R system has been waiting for. Sure, it may lack the glamour of the brighter aperture and more exotic models, but every system needs a low-cost general-purpose zoom to bundle with the entry-level bodies as a starting point.

Thankfully modern lens design coupled with in-camera corrections actually makes it a lot better than you’d think, especially for the size, weight and money. In my tests it delivered respectable sharpness across the frame, throughout the range and even with the aperture wide-open. By employing a variable aperture that dims to f7.1 at the long-end, Canon’s been able to keep size, weight and cost down, making it a very practical and attainable option, while the reasonably close focusing increases its flexibility further.

Sample pictures can be seen here. Gordon provided a video review too.

Will Canon Give Up The EOS M Lineup After 2021?

Canon EOS M50 Mark II

Bad news for those who like the EOS M system, myself included. A new rumor suggests Canon might not continue the EOS M lineup after 2021.

The EOS M mirrorless system has already been declared dead many times. Now it seems it might eventually happen. According to the rumor, Canon will end the EOS M lineup in favour of two upcoming RF mount cameras with a APS-C sensor (so far only one EOS R with APS-C was rumored).

It’s also rumored that Canon might not release dedicated RF-S lenses (i.e. lenses for the RF mount but only for APS-C sensors). Instead, future lens design will “fill the void of no dedicated APS-C lenses”. Whatever that means. Guess it means that they are designed to work well for both APS-C and FF EOS R cameras. Sort of compromise? The upcoming RF 18-45mm IS STM might be the walk-around lens for an EOS R camera with APS-C sensor.

There will be EOS M cameras on market after 2021, and the EOS M50 Mark II won’t be the last EOS M camera. Stay tuned.
