Patent: Canon RF 17-70mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM

Patent: Canon RF 17-70mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM

By Canon Rumors | January 23, 2020 | Canon Patents

It looks like Canon is serious about the 17-70mm focal range for a new lens design as discovered by Canon News. This isn’t the first time we’ve seen mention of an RF 17-70mm lens, which leads us to believe we are likely to see this introduced at some point.

This would be a nice kit lens for a new entry-level EOS R camera body.

This patent also shows two similar EF designs.

Canon will release four new full-frame cameras in 2020 [CR2]

Canon will release four new full-frame cameras in 2020 [CR2]

By Canon Rumors | January 21, 2020 | Canon DSLR Rumors

We have been working hard trying to piece together a Canon roadmap for 2020 in regards to camera bodies, and we think we have most of it figured out. The following information comes from a few different sources and is mixed with a little bit of common-sense.

This roadmap is only for full-frame ILC cameras, we have no information on new PowerShot or EOS M camera bodies.

We have been told that Canon will release four new full-frame cameras in 2020, and we’re pretty certain about three of them.

Canon EOS-1D X Mark III

This has already been announced and will begin shipping in the middle of February. You should preorder two of them.

Canon EOS Rs (unofficial name)

This has long been rumored as the next EOS R camera body, and we think there will be a good chance that it is in February ahead of CP+. It’s also possible this gets announced in May.

Major Canon announcements in February and May of this year [CR2]

By Canon Rumors | January 20, 2020 | Canon DSLR Rumors

We reported earlier that there were two new EOS bodies coming in the first half of 2020. We have no been told to expect those announcements to occur in February and May of 2020.

We were also told to expect the EOS RS (High-megapixel) body to come first, with an “unknown type of body” in May.

Another source has said it won’t be the EOS R Mark II in the first half, but a lower megapixel body to “rival the A7 S line”. We have been unable to confirm this with more than one person at this time.

More to come a bit later today.

Fundraiser: Australian Fire Relief Charity Shirt

By Canon Rumors | January 18, 2020 | Industry News

Jared Polin AKA FroKnowsPhoto is doing a good thing and has created an “I SHOOT RAW” t-shirt to raise funds for the relief efforts in Australia.

From Jared:

By now everyone knows what’s going on in Australia. There’s been massive devastation and up to a billion animals have perished. Matt Granger reached out to me about creating a shirt to raise funds for charity and this is the design I came up with.

All profits from sales of the shirts will go directly to the “Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors”, that’s Steve Irwins Zoo. Feel free to order as many shirts as you would like as all the profits go to a great cause.

Check out the fundraiser

Please Note: Unfortunately due to a trademark issue with G Star RAW, ‘I SHOOT RAW’ shirts cannot be shipped to the EU and various other countries in that region.
