The EOS 80D Replacement to be a Big Leap Forward [CR2]
« on: June 22, 2018, 02:35:05 PM »

We’re hearing very little about new DSLRs from Canon, outside of a few mentions about the replacement for the EOS 80D.


We’re told that the next version of the camera will be a “big leap forward” for the line. With product cycles being longer, Canon is apparently aware that “future proofing” cameras will become an important part of their sales strategy.


The EOS 80D was announced 855 days ago at the time of this post.


The same source also claims there’s a possibility that the EOS 80D replacement will not be called the “EOS 90D”, which is something we would find odd if true.


It sounds like a lot of marketing presentation information is at play here, as it’s all very vague. However, it does line up with some of the changes internally at Canon that we’ve heard about.


There is no mention of when the replacement for the EOS 80D will be announced.

why? before EOS 100D it is "end of the line" anyways. So why not change the numbering scheme in time and not when there really is no more alternative left? EOS 99D anyone?  ;D

Well they better be true and proper leap forward this time round!

Thanks Sony.

To translate Canonspeak:  "Future proof"  =  "Compete with Sony"

Are they confusing 7D III specs with an 80D successor?  Combine the n0D and 7D lines? 

Doesn't seem like there's a lot of room to take a big leap forward on the 90D (or whatever) without killing the 7D II.  I'd like the 7D III to come out first unless Canon is trying to get me to buy the 90D and then wow me again with the 7D III so I buy that too.

Will there finally be a 4K video implementation worth having?

I remember back when the 80D was announced I was disappointing in the lack of 4K due to the A6300 release that was earlier. I thought it would be the last Canon to not have 4K or to offer horrendous implementations of it and here we are over two years later with just bad implementations available and some cameras still without.

I'm quite happy with the 80D to be honest.. it's a really decent camera.

I had hoped to move to full frame but the 6D MkII seemed a step back. Hopefully this really is a leap forward... but damn it I want to move beyond crop!

Maybe they don't want to stomp on the legendary T90?

At any rate, I'm pleased to see this.  I waffled on an 80D to replace my 60D, but really wanted a 7D2 with the 80D screen.

“big leap forward” bla bla bla, that's just marketing talk.

The 80D was a fine camera and the 80D replacement will also be a fine camera. The big question is what specs this new camera will get. Is Canon just trying to release something equal to existing older Sony cameras like the A6300 and A6500 or will they try to leapfrog them? With Canon being Canon there is a good chance that they will just release something equal which could end in the usual disappointment because according to the Sony rumor page we're getting slowly closer to the next generation of Sony A6xxx cameras.

Big leap forward?  Really?

I'm guessing the 90D is going to be exactly what we think it is. 

This is -- at least to me -- one of the more straightforward sequels to predict:  I think it's going to be an 80D with a newer sensor, 4K w/ working DPAF.  (Am I nuts?)

If only Canon had been aware of this wild notion, "future proofing", when they decided on the 6D2...

/sarcasm.

Yada yada yada!

Nice to know by [CR2] that "something" will happen to the x0D line.

But sorry CR, this piece of (miss-) information is so far away from any kind of being worthy of a rumor, that I'll just *yawn*.

I know, rumor business is hard sometimes, but without "spice" (bits of information) this is not worth one single molecule of salt (NaCl).

*yawn again*

We won't see a 90D for just about another 12 months, so hearsay is all we can really go on right now.

But good to know it's [CR2]  ::) :P

Sorry, but if you're right with the 12 months - I have no opinion on this - everything can/won't happen.
(Of course the prototypes are built, and in field, but nothing is clear yet - except for some Canon people).

To me this is no piece of information, it isn't even a rumor, so you are right: "hearsay" - no it isn't even that.
And I haven't seen a [CR2] just for "hearsay" since I've been reading here as of 2009.

Meh!

(and yet I haven't been prominent in bashing at Canon or even canonrumors - no! I appreciate this site and the forum, but this here is bo****)
