A Shake-up Coming to the APS-C DSLR Lineup? [CR2]
« on: April 13, 2018, 09:14:05 AM »
It doesn’t appear that 2018 is going to bring us any interesting new DSLRs, we’re still being told that there won’t be another DSLR of significance released in 2018 (An announcement is always possible).

We’re also being told that the APS-C lineup is going to see some kind of a “shake-up” in regards to any EOS 80D and EOS 7D Mark II replacements. The EOS 80D is just over 2 years old and the EOS 7D Mark II will be 4 years old in September.

The source mentios that the shake-up is likely that the EOS 80D/EOS 7D Mark II duo will be split into 3 cameras with the EOS 7D Mark III being the top camera in the APS-C lineup annd two more cameras below it, one being an EOS 90D and a camera between the two.

With what we have seen recently with Canon’s Rebel and EOS M lineup, I think there’s always a possibility of more sku’s appearing at other levels of the product catalogue.

Wow, getting a bit crowded, eh? With the 77D, I could see the 90D being bumped a bit higher in order to differentiate, but 77D–90D–??–7D3? Although I must say I might actually be in the target audience of that ??, depending on the eventual specs of the 7D3.

APS-C lineup.  Could one of these be a mirrorless with an EF EF-S mount?

Canon 8D or 9D ? I feel like there is too much bodies close to each other.

That seems like a lot of segmentation. What niche could fit in between that slot?  7DS? 7DC with no-crop 4K and a flippy screen?

Regardless, from all the rumors it sounds like Canon is planning a big 2019.

exactly what the market wants ... even more marginally different mirrorslappers. 
7D III, 90D and an 88D on top ... Canon wants to celebrate "mirror-calypse" with a final firework it seems. :-)

How about the 7D III for moderate resolution/high FPS, the 8D??? for extreme resolution/low FPS, and the 90D for balance between the two. A high resolution APS-C sensor would certainly shake things up as far as competition goes - 48MP or so.

How about a 7Dsr, 50 MP on a APS-C sensor?

I was thinking along those lines as well. It would be a great way for Canon to throw a wrench into the rising market share of mirrorless APS-C systems by Sony and Fuji. I think the new EF-S glass is good enough to resolve 50MP or so. And that kind of camera would certainly be targeted towards users who already have a decent collection of full-frame EF glass anyway, or would at the very least, encourage them to buy some good quality EF glass to take advantage of the camera.

Just turn the 80D line into a mirrorless and keep the high performance 7D successor as a DSLR.

Yes, that does seem to be exactly what the market wants.  The real market...not the 'millions and millions of people' in your imagination.

The consumers in the  "market"  actually dont know  EXACTLY what they want, that is why Canon can flood the lower end  with weak and marginally different cameras and apparently they sell.
