San Jose, USA, June 23, 2021– Lexar, a leading global brand of memory solutions, is proud to announce the development of SD Express memory cards.

Lexar SD Express memory cards will leverage the PCI Express® (PCIe®) 4.0 specification delivering a maximum data transfer rate of nearly four gigabytes per second (GB/s).

These cards will also leverage the NVMe Express™ (NVMe™) protocol and are backward compatible.

The Canon Rumors Discord channel has been relaunched

The Canon Rumors Discord channel has been relaunched

By Canon Rumors | June 22, 2021 | Canon Rumors General

I have decided to re-launch the Canon Rumors Discord server due to popular demand. There will be some changes with how I moderate the server.

There will be no political talk. I think most rational people know that this type of discussion leads nowhere positive in the current environment. I have been guilty of it a few times on Twitter, but I realized my mistake in doing so. There are countless other places for people to discuss those topics.

I will build the server slowly once I see the flow of conversation and grant certain requests.

Kolari Vision is now offering a cooling solution for the Canon EOS R5

By Canon Rumors | June 21, 2021 | Canon EOS R

Kolari Vision, known for its filters and camera modifications is now offering a cooling upgrade service for the Canon EOS R5. They claim their modification will nearly double 8K recording time at room temperature and triple the record time after a 5-minute cool-down period.

The pricing for this service is $399 USD.

Keep in mind that such a service will likely void your 1-year Canon warranty.

Announcement Soon: Canon RF 16mm f/2.8 and Canon RF 70-400mm f/5.6-7.1 IS USM

Announcement Soon: Canon RF 16mm f/2.8 and Canon RF 70-400mm f/5.6-7.1 IS USM

By Canon Rumors | June 21, 2021 | Canon Lens Rumors

The long-rumored Canon RF 14-35mm f/4L IS USM will be announced soon as reported easrlier this week, and it was a longtime part of the Canon RF lens roadmap.

Canon will also be announcing a Canon RF 70-400mm f/5.6-7.1 IS USM in the near future. This is a non-L lens. While I cannot confirm the aperture range of this lens yet, I have reported it as an f/5.6-7.1 IS USM on the roadmap.

The third lens will be a Canon RF 16mm f/2.8 prime lens. This is a non-L prime lens and has not appeared on the roadmap until now. This is an interesting prime lens for a full-frame sensor. If an APS-C RF mount camera is coming, this would be a nice and compact 25mm f/2.8.

More to come…

Canon RF 14-35mm f/4L IS USM to be one of the next lenses announced

Canon RF 14-35mm f/4L IS USM to be one of the next lenses announced

By Canon Rumors | June 20, 2021 | Canon Lens Rumors

Canon will be adding another wide-angle zoom to the RF lineup sometime over the next month or two. Expect to see a Canon RF 14-35mm f/4L IS USM  as a little brother to the Canon RF 15-35mm f/2.8L IS USM.

The Canon RF 14-35mm f/4L IS USM uses the product code 4857C005.

Our Canon RF lens roadmap has had the RF 14-35mm f/4L IS USM on it for quite some time.

I don’t know the price at this time, but if I had to give a prediction, I’d say $1199-$1299 USD.

After the development announcement of the Canon EOS R3, the internet went a bit silly with stories about who is actually manufacturing the image sensor in the Canon EOS R3. Why it mattered? I don’t know, but I stayed away from the claims made by a bunch of sites.

PetaPixel reports that Canon has directly told them the following about the Canon EOS R3 image sensor.

The sensor in the upcoming EOS R3 camera is Canon designed and manufactured.

I’m glad this issue has been put to rest and we can get on with things.

Two new Canon RF lenses appear for certification

Two new Canon RF lenses appear for certification

By Canon Rumors | June 18, 2021 | Canon Lens Rumors

Two unreleased lenses have appeared for certification in Russia. This brings the total of known unreleased lenses to three.

The most talked-about lens recently has been the long rumoured Canon RF 35mm f/1.2L USM.

Usually, once lenses reach certification agencies, you can expect them to be announced within 90 days. However, there could be some delays because of the manufacturing challenges that still exist.

New unreleased lenses

  • 5050C005
  • 5051C005

Previously known unreleased lens

  • 4857C005

The following three lenses were announced alongside the development announcement of the Canon EOS R3, and none of these have the same product codes as the lenses above.

You can see our RF lens roadmap here, keep in mind this list may be incomplete.

Patent: Canon RF 35mm f/1.2L USM as well as an RF 24mm f/1.2L USM and RF 28mm f/1.2L USM

By Canon Rumors | June 17, 2021 | Canon Patents

Is Canon planning to make f/1.2 the new standard for all of their L prime lenses up to the focal length of the RF 85mm f/1.2L USM?

The Canon RF 35mm f/1.2L has been rumored for quite some time and has appeared on our RF lens roadmap since the beginning. There have also been previous patents for an RF 35mm f/1.2L USM.

Canon News has uncovered another patent for an RF 35mm f/1.2L USM optical formula, along with two other f/1.2L prime lenses that would be highly desired, an RF 24mm f/1.2L USM and (oh joy!) an RF 28mm f/1.2L USM.

If all of this comes to fruition, this will be a very hard set of prime lenses to beat.
