Canon engineers talk EOS R and the future of the system

By Canon Rumors | October 22, 2018 | Canon EOS R

DPReview had a chance to talk to the folks from the Canon EOS R development team. They spoke with someone from each of the main parts of development, someone from physical design, optical design, UI design and the product design team. Apparently, the design team was given more freedom for the EOS R system, than any previous Canon camera project.

Roger and Aaron at Lensrentals.com have continued their series of taking apart new cameras and lenses, this time doing a teardown of the brand new Canon EOS R.

From Lensrentals.com

It was rather a boring disassembly, really, about what we should expect for Canon doing a Canon 6D Mark II quality mirrorless camera. It’s neatly laid out and nicely engineered inside. One thing that struck me is that it’s not very crowded inside there, or as we like to say ‘they left a lot of air inside’……

Do I think future Rs are going to have IBIS? No, I don’t. Canon has been very clear that they think lens stabilization is superior. The space is probably just a matter of ergonomics and perhaps heat diffusion. But there’s certainly room for it. Read the full article

Review: Canon EOS R by TDP

Review: Canon EOS R by TDP

Bryan at The-Digital-Picture has completed his extensive review of the brand new Canon EOS R full frame mirrorless camera.

Canon seems to have released a very impressive first full-frame mirrorless camera and have what looks to be the most advanced lens mount in the game, and just like other reviews, Bryan thinks the EOS R will be a great tool for a lot of photographers.

From The-Digital-Picture:

Canon aimed this first R model at a very broad market, leaving out a rather small number of advanced features such as a very high drive speed when focus-tracking, in-body image stabilization, dual memory card slots and ultra-high resolution, but keeping the price at a very attractive level. The easy-to-use EOS R will very strongly appeal to both amateurs and seasoned professionals. Read the full review

Two Canon EOS R series bodies coming in 2019 [CR2]

Two Canon EOS R series bodies coming in 2019 [CR2]

By Canon Rumors | October 18, 2018 | Canon DSLR Rumors

I think we all expect to see the new EOS R line of cameras and RF line of lenses to grow quickly. Canon has the R&D and manufacturing resources to make it happen.

We’re told that two EOS R series bodies will be coming in 2019. One will be slotted below the Canon EOS R itself and will come first. The second body will be a “professional” series camera coming later in 2019. What “professional” means is unknown at this time. It could be a baby EOS-1D X Mark II built for speed and video, or it could be a high megapixel body meant for studio and landscape work. We probably won’t get clarity on this until into 2019.

While we have heard that an EOS R series camera with an APS-C sensor is a possibility, this source noted that they’ve seen nothing to suggest one is coming in 2019, saying “We won’t be getting an EOS R version of the EOS 7D Mark II”.

Canon will also be focused on DSLRs, as at least four new DSLR bodies are expected in 2019.

By Canon Rumors | October 18, 2018 | Third Party Lenses

The long rumoured Zeiss Otus 100mm f/1.4 was expected at Photokina last month, but it didn’t officially materialize. A few days ago, Nokishita posted some images of the upcoming lens.

This will be the fourth lens in the Otus lineup. The others include the Zeiss Otus 28mm f/1.4, the Zeiss Otus 55mm f/1.4, and the Zeiss Otus 85mm f/1.4 This series of lenses is generally regarded as uncompromised expressions of what Zeiss is capable of.

We’re told that new diffractive optics super telephoto lenses are on the way, but they may not be for the EF mount.

An unknown source has told us that the 600mm f/4 DO IS that Canon showed at the last Canon Expo could be making its way to the RF mount instead of EF. The same source also claims that two additional DO lenses are in the works, and both are likely going to be for the RF mount.

None of these lenses are expected in 2019, but they may be part of the 2020 roadmap.
