No More Than 6 Canon RF Lenses Coming In 2019

Canon RF Lenses

As usual after a major Canon announcement, rumor mills go wild with speculations.

Latest has it that Canon might announce two more RF lenses beyond the six lenses we already know they will announce. And then not. The rumor isn’t entirely clear about when Canon might announce these two lenses, citing some plans Canon might have had in the recent past and then abandoned, and considering 2020 too as the year for a possible announcement.

Neither is it clear what focal lengths Canon might up their sleeve, though the RF 100-400mm f/3.5-5.6L IS USM and RF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS appear to be candidates. Both are supported by patent applications filed by Canon.

It’s pretty clear that Canon takes their EOR R system very seriously, and that the company will invest a lot in the development of the eco system (i.e. lenses). A lot of new RF lenses are set to hit the market in the next years, that’s for sure. For the same reason a lot of weak, RF lenses related rumors will hit the Internet in the next months.

The Canon EOS RP Is Not A Filmmaker’s Darling

The Canon EOS RP is already getting a lot of positive feedback from the shooter’s community. The filmmakers are less fond of Canon’s entry level full frame mirrorless camera.

Below you see a set of hands-on/first impression (p)reviews from various movie making folks. I’m not so much into movies but as a stills photog I can’t wait to get an EOS RP. For more photographer oriented previews see here.

Maybe not everything below should be taken too seriously, especially not the last video.

This Photographer Switched From Sony To The Canon EOS R, Here Is Why

Eos R

Photographer Tyson Robichaud switched to the Canon EOS R after years using Sony cameras (and other brands too). In a recent post he reviews the Canon EOS R, compares the EOS R to the Sony a7R II, and explains why he switched to Canon.

Tyson’s review is a real world review, with many sample photos, ISO test charts and more useful insights. As you can see below, Canon’s sensor is still behind Sony’s when it comes to high ISO performance.

ISO 12800 – Sony a7R II on the left, Canon EOS R on the right (image © tysonrobichaudphotography.wordpress.com)
ISO 25600 – Sony a7R II on the left, Canon EOS R on the right image © tysonrobichaudphotography.wordpress.com)
ISO 51200 – Sony a7R II on the left, Canon EOS R on the right image © tysonrobichaudphotography.wordpress.com)

In his conclusion he writes:

The EOS R has a lot going for it, and a few bizarre omissions/inclusions in my personal opinion.  How those sit with any given shooter will certainly come down to personal needs and expectations for the cost.

Short and sweet, the image quality is still behind the better performing, comparably priced full frame cameras right now.  That, in and of itself may be enough for many to steer clear and go elsewhere with their hard earned money.  The tradeoff for that IQ, in my experience, has been a much better and more solidly operating tool in most every regard.  Less the omission of in body stabilization, and some of the odd and arguably excusable/ignorable design choices, I find the EOS R to be provide a better shooting experience for me, compared to my Sony cameras.  Canon, for their faults, have always been great at building a camera that integrates well with the shooter, and photographic task at hand.

If you want to learn about the Canon EOS R we highly recommend Tyson’s review. It’s the kind of camera review I read before deciding which camera to buy.

Yesterday Canon announced their second full frame mirrorless camera, the Canon EOS RP.

Canon Has An EOS R Model With IBIS On Their Agenda

Ibis

The image on top shows a slide that was presented during the Canon EOS R announcement/presentation (so we were told).

If real it might give us reason to think Canon is indeed working on a full frame mirrorless camera with IBIS (In Body Image Stabilisation). Canon execs always stated that optical IS (i.e. image stabilisation in the lens) is the better technology. It seems they are about to change their mind, or maybe their just responding to user requests.

The Canon EOS RP, the company’s first entry level full frame mirrorless camera was announced yesterday. And it has a price that we didn’t expect from Canon. In an interview with Imaging Resource, Canon execs stated clearly that the EOS RP has the same internals as the EOS 6D Mark II, something we reported over two years ago.

I wonder when we will see a Canon mirrorless camera with IBIS, in one, two, three years?
