Patent: Canon RF 100-400mm f/5.6-7.1

Patent: Canon RF 100-400mm f/5.6-7.1

By Canon Rumors | February 20, 2020 | Canon Patents

Canon News has uncovered a patent for an RF 100-400mm F5.6-7.1 optical formula. We know an RF 100-400mm lens is coming, but we think it will be held off until 2021 from what we have heard.

Canon RF 100-400mm f/5.6-7.1:

  • Focal length: 119.97mm 218.00mm 360.96mm
  • F-Number: 5.50 6.50 7.10
  • Half angle of view: 6.50° 3.59° 2.17°
  • Image height: 13.66mm  13.66mm  13.66mm
  • Total lens length: 179.62mm 192.93mm 233.56mm
  • BF: 15.03mm  15.03mm  15.04mm

Canon appears to be going a different direction with their longer lenses for the RF mount than the other manufacturers. They seem to be more interested in reducing the size and making the usability more comfortable. It also helps that they have a bunch of stellar EF lenses that will work just fine with your RF camera if you want the faster speeds.

Five Canon RF lenses show up for certification

Five Canon RF lenses show up for certification

By Canon Rumors | February 18, 2020 | Canon Lens Rumors

Five SKUs for upcoming Canon RF lenses have appeared at a Russian certification agency.

  • 3986C005
  • 3987C005
  • 4112C005
  • 4113C005
  • 4114C005

Of these SKUs, we can assume one is for the Canon RF 100-500mm f/4.5-7.1L IS USM. It’s also possible that two others are for the two extenders that were announced.

The Canon RF 24-105mm f/4-7.1 IS STM has the SKU 4111C002.

The other two could be for an upcoming macro, pancake and/or DO super-telephoto lenses. We do expect further lens announcements quite soon.

I was told today that three L lenses were coming in 2020.

Canon will announce a new Cinema EOS camera ahead of NAB [CR3]

Canon will announce a new Cinema EOS camera ahead of NAB [CR3]

By Canon Rumors | February 18, 2020 | Canon Cinema EOS Rumors

We have confirmed that Canon will be announcing a new Cinema EOS camera ahead of NAB in April.

The new camera will follow the same form factor as the recently released Canon Cinema EOS C500 Mark II and will have a user interchangeable EF and PL mount.

This is likely going to be the follow-up to the Canon Cinema EOS C300 Mark II and not the coming 8K Canon Cinema EOS camera, though I wouldn’t be shocked to finally see a development announcement for the 8K camera.

We hope to nail down the specifications for the new camera shortly.

What’s next from Canon in 2020?

What’s next from Canon in 2020?

By Canon Rumors | February 17, 2020 | Canon DSLR Rumors

Now that we’ve seen the big first-quarter announcements from Canon in the EOS-1D X Mark III and the development of the EOS R5, RF 100-500mm f/4.5-7.1L IS USM, extenders as well as the vertical video shooting EOS Rebel T8i. We always want to know what’s coming next.

I’ll break down what we know at this time, you can consider this information between [CR2] and [CR3].

Canon EOS R6

We expect this camera to be announced in May, with a June shipping date. The announcement and ship date aren’t yet confirmed, but that’s what we have been told.

Canon EOS R6 Specifications:

  • 20mp full-frame CMOS sensor
  • IBIS
  • 12fps mechanical and 20fps electronic.
  • 4K @ 60p
  • New battery (Not sure if it’s the same as the EOS R5)
  • June 2020 launch (We think a May announcement)

Canon EOS R5s //  Canon EOS R3

We have been told that the high-megapixel EOS R camera will launch in Q4 of 2020. We have no specifications for the camera at this time. We also don’t know if it’ll be called the EOS R5s or EOS R3, but both would make sense.

Lenses

We have been told that a pancake lens is coming in 2020, we think a May announcement could be likely.

We have also been told that Canon will announce at least one DO super-telephoto prime lens for the RF mount. There is a possibility of two being announced. Expect slower aperture lenses, since Canon already has the amazing big white lenses that are easily adapted to the RF mount.

A fast ultra-wide L prime will also be announced in 2020.

That’s all I have been told about lenses for the moment, but I expect to hear more very soon.

By Canon Rumors | February 13, 2020 | Industry News

This shouldn’t come as a surprise after the MWC trade show was canceled yesterday, but the CP+ trade show in Yokohama, Japan has been canceled.

From the organizers:

Given there is no effective treatment or containment measures to deal with the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), organizers of CP+2020 have decided to cancel the event due to overall concerns, mainly the risk to the health and safety of visitors and exhibitors. The event was originally scheduled to be held over 4 days at PACIFICO Yokohama from February 27.
