Canon to use a Sony image sensor in an upcoming APS-C ILC body? [CR1]

Canon to use a Sony image sensor in an upcoming APS-C ILC body? [CR1]

By Canon Rumors | November 10, 2018 | Canon DSLR Rumors

We’re told that Canon will be using the brand new Sony IMX571 image sensor in an upcoming Canon APS-C ILC camera body. The source thinks it’s going to be in a mirrorless camera, but there’s also the possibility we’ll see it in a DSLR.

The Sony IMX571 is a back-illuminated 26mp CMOS APS-C image sensor built for DSLRs, which we believe includes mirrorless ILC applications. The sensor is also capable of shooting at 16fps.

Canon has used Sony image sensors in PowerShot cameras in the past, but I cannot remember the last time they used a 3rd party image sensor in an interchangeable lens camera.

Compatibility of Tokina interchangeable lenses with the Canon EOS R

Compatibility of Tokina interchangeable lenses with the Canon EOS R

By Canon Rumors | November 10, 2018 | Third Party Lenses

From Tokina:

We have thoroughly tested all current Tokina interchangeable lenses (Canon EF mount) with the Canon EOS R mirrorless camera and the Canon EF-EOS R mount adapter.

The results confirm that the current Tokina lens models showed no issues in general operations, with the following exception:

  • Tokina AT-X 17-35 F4 PRO FX

Issue: the image Cropping/Aspect ratio would be fixed at “1.6x (Crop)” and cannot be set at “Full (3:2)”.

We are currently preparing a firmware to fix the issue, which will be specifically notified about in due time.

APS-C Canon EOS R body likely [CR2]

APS-C Canon EOS R body likely [CR2]

By Canon Rumors | November 9, 2018 | Canon DSLR Rumors

A good source has chimed in on the possibility of a Canon EOS R body with an APS-C sensor.

In a recent interview, a Canon executive made a comment about the EOS M and EOS R systems, saying (google translated) “Since EOS R is a full-size system, it can not be downsized to EOS M size. EOS M has a role/existence value as an APS-C system.”

A few sites took that to mean that there would be no APS-C sensor equipped EOS R body. We took it to mean that they cannot shrink the RF mount and the ergonomics needed for a “prosumer/professional” camera to the EOS M size of a camera and that a compact APS-C system like the EOS M would continue to exist for the foreseeable future.

Patent: New EF-M zoom lenses from Canon

Patent: New EF-M zoom lenses from Canon

By Canon Rumors | November 9, 2018 | Canon Patents

Japan Patent Application 2018173487 shows a bunch of different optical formulas for new EF-M zoom lenses.

Lenses included in the patent:

  • EF-M 15-130mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM
  • EF-M 18-130mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM
  • EF-M 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM

According to Canon News, the major focus of this patent application is making lighter focus groups, which would improve AF performance and prevent “wobble”, which would be important for video work.

Full frame mirrorless market share: Canon already has 22% of the market in Japan

Full frame mirrorless market share: Canon already has 22% of the market in Japan

By Canon Rumors | November 7, 2018 | Canon EOS R

BCN rankings have released the latest numbers for the full frame mirrorless camera market in Japan, and Sony’s near 100% market share took a big hit after the release of the Canon EOS R and the Nikon Z series cameras.

Full frame mirrorless market share breakdown (Japan):

  1. Sony 67%
  2. Canon 22.1%
  3. Nikon 10.4%
Sony – Blue // Canon – Red // Nikon – Green

These numbers may be inflated since Canon and Nikon just released their full frame mirrorless systems. It’ll be interesting to watch over the next few months whether or not Canon and Nikon can maintain or even increase their market share in the segment.

If we had to make a prediction, Canon will likely have 50% of the market by this time next year once they’ve released a few more EOS R bodies and lenses.

Nikon’s numbers will likely increase once the Z6 starts to ship in large numbers next month.

No word on the market share breakdown in Europe or North America yet.
