A first set of specifications for the upcoming Canon EOS R8 leaked over the Internet.…
Once again we get a suggestion in our inbox saying Canon will not release a successor to the EOS 90D. No more xxD DSLRs?
The source states that Canon will not release a replacement for the Canon EOS 90D. At least not as a DSLR. Not the first time we hear this. Apparently Canon sees no more reasons to invest in consumer DSLR and wants to fully switch to mirrorless technology. Not sure how reliable this rumor is. Or maybe it’s just me not wanting Canon to kill the xxD lineup. I owned Canon EOS xxD DSLRs since the EOS 40D and in my opinion they should not stop producing xxD cameras. But who am I to tell? I just love Canon EOS xxD cameras.
Can the EOS M lineup replace the EOS xxD lineup? Not really. The EOS M does not have a comparable native lens ecosystem and I think users who love the Canon’s xxD DSLRs are not yet ready to fully embrace mirrorless technology. When I have to choose between my EOS 80D and my EOS M3 I usually choose the former. It’s just better ergonomics for me.
So, not sure how much I believe this rumor. However, I wonder what would be the name of an EOS 90D replacement, if one will be released. EOS 95D? What do you think?
