Canon Might Announce a 35mm f/1.2L Lens For The EOS R System

Canon RF 50mm F/1.2 EOS R System

Is Canon set to release another f/1.2 lens for the EOS R system in the near future?

After the RF 50mm f/1.2L and the RF 85mm f/1.2L Canon night announce a 35mm f/1.2L lens. This sounds plausible to us (despite the fact there are too many low reliable RF mount rumors around). First, 35mm is a very classic focal length on full frame (Canon already released the relatively inexpensive RF 35mm f/1.8 IS Macro). Next, another f/1.2L lens makes sense for a system like the EOS R, designed to mount high performing optics. Indeed, we are pretty sure the rumored RF 35mm f/1.2L will not be the last f/1.2 lens for the EOS R. Maybe a 24mm f/1.2L is next?

The Canon RF 35mm f/1.2L lens is said to be released somewhen in 2020. Canon still has to release a bunch of lenses they already announced. If this lens is going to be released for sure it will not be a lens for people on a budget.

We expect Canon to make an announcement on August 28th. The Canon EOS 90D will be announced, possibly along with the EOS M6 Mark II and some lenses for the EOS M system. The rumored high resolution EOS R body will most likely be announced later. This camera will replace the EOS 5Ds/5Ds R.

All Canon rumors are listed here.

Stay tuned…

Next Canon EOS R Will Have Higher Resolution Than Sony a7R IV

Canon Eos R

We have been tipped with a rumor about the upcoming high resolution Canon EOS R body.

We already had a bunch of rumors about the high res EOS R, this one is not really adding something to the heap. The source stated that the upcoming EOS R will have a resolution “way beyond the Sony a7R IV“.

The Sony a7R IV was announced a few weeks ago and sports a resolution of 61MP. Previous high res EOS R rumors suggested a resolution between 60 and 75MP. If the resolution is going to be “beyond” the a7R IV, then I guess the 75MP might nail it. That Canon will release such a camera is a sure thing, confirmed by no less than Canon execs. We also know that most likely Canon has already field-tested the high res EOS R camera. According to the source, Canon is set to become the alpha dog in the mirrorless yard.

We expect Canon to announce the high resolution EOS R body in 2019. We have been tipped with Fall as time frame but can not confirm it for sure for the time being. Most likely Canon will not announce the high res EOS R body along with the Canon EOS 90D and possibly a new EOS M camera on August 28th. Some new EF-M lenses might also be announced. And what about the RF mount lenses Canon already announced (development) and didn’t so far release? They’re on their way. Canon said they will release them in 2019 and there is no reason to doubt it.

Sound off in the comment section, and stay tuned for more to come.

This Guy Ditched Sony For The Canon EOS R – Here Is Why

Canon Eos R

Matt Gonzalez ditched Sony and chose to shoot with the Canon EOS R.

He says:

I have been using Sony cameras for years. They are great and provide awesome features for the price. I’ve used the A6400, A6300, A7Sii, A7iii, almost all of them. But I just upgraded to the Canon EOS R. I chose between the Panasonic GH5, Fuji XT3, and Sony A7ii, but I think I’m done with Sony.

He tells why he switched to the Canon EOS R in the 8 minutes video below. Enjoy.

A Pro Canon EOS R Camera In 2020 Seems To Be Very Likely, Rumor

Canon Eos-1d X Mark Ii

A new rumor suggests that a professional (think EOS-1D X equivalent) Canon EOS R body in 2020 is almost a sure thing.

A pro or sport oriented EOS R camera is rumored since a while and we know it is in development. 2020 is the year of the Summer Olympics. Canon will most likely announce the EOS-1D X Mark III before the Games, and an EOS R body which is equally oriented to sport photography might also be on Canon’s agenda. The rumor suggests such an EOS R camera might “definitely be in photographers hands” ahead of the Summer Games. However, this might mean these people is testing the camera, with an official announcement coming later on.

Before this pro/sport oriented EOS R body, we expect Canon to announce a high resolution model, possibly towards end of 2019.

Stay tuned, there is more to come.
