A new Canon EOS R1 rumor surfaced from the interweb of rumor mills.

The rumor states that the Canon EOS R1 might get announced not earlier than 2024. Allegedly, the intel came from a Canon Explorer of Light. The rumor also suggests the Canon EOS R1 might have an 85MP imaging sensor, 24fps (mechanical raw burst), and will have improved dynamic range. Sounds good,doesn’t it?

We too got indeed a suggestion that the Canon EOS R1 might not get announced before 2024. The Summer Games 2024 come to mind as a possible schedule for the announcement.

The Canon EOS R1 is sort of long running rumor. Everyone knows that it will eventually be announced, so everyone speculates about it, sometime wilder sometimes less wild.

All Canon EOS R1 rumors are listed here.

Stay tuned.

Canon EOS R1 Now Rumored To Be Announced In Q3 2023

It seems the rumors about the Canon EOS R1 got the usual shift in expectations. Now it is not earlier than the second half of 2023.

The Canon EOS R1, supposed to replace the EOS-1D X series, is now rumored to get announced not earlier than the second half of 2023. Says the source of the rumor:

With Canon and other manufacturers still suffering from inventory shortages, this shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. We also believe Canon wants to round out the lens lineup further before the EOS R1.

Announcement dates are mostly wild speculation until a few months before the announcement. That Canon will release an EOS R1 model is sure, for that matter, we just do not know Canon’s plans for the release of the EOS R1.

Stay tuned.

A new supercharged rumor emerged from the interweb of rumor mills. The EOS R1 and not less than 5 super telephoto lenses for the RF mount.

Let’s first see the lenses. All rumored to have DO (Diffractive Optics):

  • RF 400mm f/3.5 DO IS
  • RF 400mm f/4 DO IS
  • RF 500mm f/4.5 DO IS
  • RF 500mm f/5 DO IS
  • RF 800mm f/9.5 DO IS

All plausible lenses. Why Canon should put these on the market all together is another question (or another rumor). The source mentions prototypes, so likely not all the lenses are meant to hit the shelves.

The source of the rumor also claims that Canon might announce these super telephoto lenses along with the long rumored EOS R1. Maybe just a development announcement. The usual supply chain and similar are issues are also mentioned.

All in all we think there is little beef in this rumor. We already know with good confidence that Canon might release the EOS R1in 2022. As for the lenses, to us it seems a mixed bag of wishful thinking and some lenses that sooner or later will in any case be released. So, not much you can do wrong with this rumor.

Stay tuned.

Canon EOS-1D X Mark III Company’s Last Flagship DSLR, Exec Says

Canon Eos-1d X Mark Iii Sensor

Yesterday a news about Canon broke over the Internet. Not only the source of the news wasn’t cited by the usual suspects, but it was also reported in a misleading way.

asobinet.com broke the news reporting an interview with a Canon exec, Canon’s Chairman and CEO Fujio Mitarai. In the interview. Mr Fujio Mitarai states that the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III will be Canon’s last flagship DSLR. The future belongs to mirrorless:

The market needs are acceleratingly shifting to mirrorless cameras. In line with this, we are steadily shifting people

However, that does not mean Canon will no longer produce DSLRs, as some sites want you to believe. From the interview:

Demand for beginner and intermediate SLR cameras is strong overseas, so we plan to continue development and production for the time being.

It doesn’t really come to a surprise that Canon will no longer produce a flagship DSLR, given all the efforts they put into mirrorless. The next Canon flagship camera will be the Canon EOS R1.
