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

Canon Eos R Firmware

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 Firmware

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.

Sony a7R IV vs Sigma fp vs Canon EOS R vs Canon EOS RP Size Comparison

Sony A7R IV

Let’s see how the brand new Sony a7R IV compares to the competition when it comes to size and bulk.

Below is the size comparison (from camerasize.com) between the Sony a7R IV, Sigma fp, and Canon EOS R.

It’s amazing how small and compact the Sigma fp is (while still having a full frame sensor). I do not know how the Sigma fp will look and can be handled with a telephoto lens attached, but it definitely looks cool with its diminutive form factor.

And what to say about the new a7R IV? Impressive at least. Guess the a7R IV is the new reference standard for the competition. While I am happy that Canon only releases thoroughly tested gear (which as good as never lets you out in the rain, or overheats and turns off), I also wish they could push technological innovation a bit more (especially on the specifications/feature side of things).

Sigma Might Release Four Lenses For The Canon EOS R (tell us which one you’d like to see first)

Sigma Canon Eos R Art Prime Rf Mount

Good news for Canon EOS R fans.

In a few weeks Sigma will for the first time announce lenses designed specifically for the Sony Full Frame Mirrorless system. These:

  • 35mm f/1.2
  • 45mm f/2.8
  • 12-24mm f/2.8
  • 24-70mm f/2.8

That’s not the entire story. We have been told (thanks) that Sigma will release these lenses also natively for the Canon EOS R full frame mirrorless system. The source couldn’t tell a timeframe for the RF mount versions. All we know is that they will be released “sometimes later” (i.e. after the release of the Sony versions).

That’s really good news. Sigma makes outstanding lenses and releasing those lenses for the EOS R system will be a great contribution to its lens ecosystem.

Which lens would you like Sigma to release first for the Canon EOS R?
