The Canon EOS R Mark II and EOS 5D Mark V Are On Canon’s Roadmap

Eos 5d Mark V

Wondered what’s going to happen with Canon’s full frame DSLR lineup? Well, Canon still wants to update the 5D series.

New rumor has it that both the Canon EOS 5D Mark V and the Canon EOS R Mark II showed up in an internal roadmap document.

We think it is out of doubt that Canon will replace the EOS 5D Mark IV, sooner or later, despite the success of the EOS R lineup. And it’s also to expect that Canon will announce a replacement for the EOS R, sooner or later. Canon is transitioning from DSLR and the EF mount to mirrorless and the RF mount, but it will not be a matter of a few years.

While the source of the rumor did not mention a timeframe, it’s safe to assume that both the EOS 5D Mark V and the EOS R Mark II will not be released that soon. Don’t expect it for the beginning of 2020. At least the EOS 5D Mark V might not be a 2020 affair but get released not earlier than 2021.

Stay tuned.

Nikon releases the DX-format Nikon Z 50

Experience the superior rendering capabilities and rich power of expression of the Nikon Z mount system in a compact and lightweight body

TOKYO – Nikon Corporation (Nikon) is pleased to announce the release of the APS-C size (Nikon DX-format) Nikon Z 50 mirrorless camera, as well as NIKKOR Z DX lenses.

Details regarding the NIKKOR Z DX lenses can be found in the following press release, issued today:

The Z 50 is Nikon’s first DX-format mirrorless camera. It inherits its design and operability, reliability, and future possibilities as a mirrorless system from the Nikon Z 7 and Nikon Z 6, further improving on those characteristics and condensing them into a compact, lightweight, and durable body capable of superior rendering capabilities and rich power of expression. It is equipped with the Z mount, which is compatible with both the NIKKOR Z DX and NIKKOR Z FX, ensuring support for all NIKKOR Z lenses and allowing users to enjoy great variety in imaging expression.

The Z 50 has an effective pixel count of 20.9 megapixels, and is the first Nikon DX-format camera to be equipped with a CMOS sensor that incorporates focal-plane phase-detection AF pixels. Adoption of this image sensor, along with the EXPEED 6 image-processing engine, has made a broad range of standard ISO sensitivities — ISO 100-51200*1 — possible for superior image quality with very little noise throughout that range. The camera is also equipped with features such as mid-range sharpening and Creative Picture Control, enabling support for creative imaging expression equivalent to that offered by the Z 7 and Z 6. When NIKKOR Z lenses are used, the Z 50 demonstrates superior resolution and rendering capabilities with both recording of still images, and videos.
