Recently we’ve become aware of 6 different unreleased Canon ILC camera bodies that have come up for various types of certification. The only camera out of the lot that we’re pretty sure is coming this year, is an EOS M5 Mark II ahead of Photokina in September. Beyond that, everything is currently a guess.

There are reports that two of the DSLRs mentioned will be the EOS 80D and EOS 7D Mark II successors, both of which are very popular models in the lineup. Unfortunately, we have been unable to confirm that this is the case. Good sources have said repeatedly to me that there would not be a major DSLR release in 2018 and that 2019 is still an unknown.

Now, these certifications can happen many months in advance of an actual announcement, so it’s possible we’re looking a Q1 2019 camera bodies. Which, if true, there’s no chance of having any real specifications to report beyond guesses and logical next steps in the EOS xxD and EOS 7D line. If either of them is coming in 2018, Canon is doing a stellar job of keeping the lid on things.

We’ll obviously provide an update on these camera models as soon as we’re able to.

More to come…

That would be an interesting option - buy a battery meter with a lens attached.

More interested to know what lenses are coming out? More precisely a 180mm or 50/60mm FF macros. Also interested to see what Sigma and Tamron bring to Photokina in terms of macros.

Good news for Canon lovers that there are some potentially unpredictable releases out there, especially with regard to MILC cameras.

Canon is now actually starting to disrupt their own product line and shake things up a bit, as recent executives have discussed.

Canon hasn't started to disrupt anything yet, it's just rumors. I'll believe it when I see an actual product with an actual review.

I completely agree with you but I'm trying to be positive here that they've seen the light- pun intended ;)

I'm pretty sure with a decade of disappointments in the DSLR industry, they've forgotten how to disrupt.

October 2005 the Canon 5D Mark I came out.
September 2008 the Canon 5D Mark II Came out with a larger screen and video shooting capability that shot 30fps, not 24p (23.997 fps) and not 30p (29.997fps).

I would be really surprised if Canon came out with something amazing.  I still use Canon but I also own Sony.

Canons are great for using on weddings that make good money and I can get Canon to turn a repair around in under a week.  Their service is hands down second to none.

Sony is better as far as flexibility in creative options imo.

Don't fret, it's definitely OK to be punny on hump day!  ;D

Curious:  what has been the typical lead time between a code-named body dropping for certification vs. a public reveal?  3 months?  6 months?  Longer?

So a company no longer produces new products, they 'disrupt' their own product lines? It seems that being 'disruptive' has become a mark of success....

People may point to Canon and draw analogies with Kodak and Nokia (who actually remained very successful, just not in their original high profile products) but in business, the disruptor is often the first one to go out of business when they realise they cannot maintain their advantage, become ossified in being disruptive for the sake of it and don't know how to develop what they have got.

Or, with a decade and a half of market dominance in the DSLR industry, they’ve seen no need to disrupt.  Not necessarily a good thing for us as consumers, but that’s life.
EOS 1D X, EOS M6, lots of lenses

no they haven't.

even if they add more mirrorless that's not going to disrupt anything.

A company produces new products that disrupt their own product lines before competitors do. This has been talked about in tech / business circles for years. An old school example is that Apple’s iPod mini was selling well under Steve Jobs. But that didn’t stop them with coming out with a new product, the iPod Nano, which was a much smaller version with newer tech. It killed iPod mini sales eventually but became a much more successful product in the long run. Apple came out with a smaller, more advanced version of the iPod before someone else did, hence disrupting themselves.
