A Shake-up Coming to the APS-C DSLR Lineup? [CR2]

A Shake-up Coming to the APS-C DSLR Lineup? [CR2]

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.

If you’re in need of some geek, Roger over at Lensrentals.com has posted a new article comparing color shift differences in cinema lenses. Included in the test are cinema lenses from Canon, Samyang, Sigma, Schneider & Zeiss

What’s the takeaway from Lensrentals.com:

For Cine lenses at least, a given brand does tend to have a given look, at least in focal lengths of 35mm and longer. The process we’ve developed seems to be correlating with real-world findings. The differences are slight, and I doubt significant at all unless you mix and match brands during a shoot without color balancing. Read the full article
