Patent: Superzoom lenses for EF and RF mounts

Patent: Superzoom lenses for EF and RF mounts

By Canon Rumors | November 16, 2018 | Canon Patents

Japan Patent Application 2018-180203 shows off some optical formulas for superzooms with both EF and RF mounts.

EF mount optical formulas included in this patent:

  • EF 35-350mm f/3.5-5.6
  • EF 35-400mm f/4.5-5.6

RF mount optical formulas included in this patent:

  • RF 25-300mm f/3.5-5.6
  • RF 30-350mm f/2.8-4.5

A superzoom with some speed would definitely be a welcomed addition to the RF mount and the EOS R system.

Back in September, Sigma announced the Sigma 70-200mm F2.8 DG OS HSM Sports along with four other new Global Vision lenses. The shipping dates of the 5 lenses all seem to differ from one another.

According to Nokishita, the Sigma 70-200mm F2.8 DG OS HSM Sports will begin shipping worldwide on December 14, 2018. The current rumored pricing is ¥164,700 including tax ($1450USD). Expect the USA price to be well below the converted price.

Preorders and official pricing will come on November, 16, 2018.

The predicted first half of 2019 Canon product announcement roadmap

The predicted first half of 2019 Canon product announcement roadmap

By Canon Rumors | November 14, 2018 | Canon DSLR Rumors

The rumor mill has slowed considerably since the launch of the EOS R system, which was to be expected. There are no more Canon cameras or lenses being announced for the rest of 2018. I suspect we’re going to see more emphasis from Canon on rebates and deals for Black Friday and the Christmas shopping season.

We should start seeing announcements almost immediately in 2019.

CES – Las Vegas, USA // January 8, 2019 – January 11, 2019

We think we’re finally going to see a replacement for the Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II for CES in January. We’re told this camera will be able to shoot 4K with DPAF. We may also see another G series PowerShot camera, but details have been scarce so far.

We may also see some other unique camera products, such as this 360-degree camera.

We do not expect any ILC announcements for ahead of this show.

CP+ – Yokohama, Japan // February 28, 2019 – March 3, 2019

This tends to be a bigger show for higher-end consumer and prosumer announcements.

We’re expecting to see the replacement for the EOS 80D at CP+. It’ll be a 4K capable APS-C DSLR. While we cannot confirm it’ll be called the EOS 90D, there’s a good chance it will be. There have been some mentions that the APS-C DSLR lineup will be getting a bit of a shake-up in 2019.

We also expect to see new EOS M cameras, but no new lenses for the EF-M mount.

There is a possibility that we’ll see another EOS R body and at least one RF lens announced for this show.

NAB – Las Vegas, USA // April 6, 2019 – April 11, 2019

This is generally a Cinema EOS show for Canon, and not much in the way of DSLRs or mirrorless cameras should be expected.

We think we may finally see the ILC version of the XC style camera body. There is some thought this camera may also come with an RF mount, but we cannot confirm that at this time.

We don’t expect any other Cinema EOS body, as the EOS C300 Mark III seems to be slated for later in 2019.

There’s still nothing about an EOS C500 replacement, but we’re still quite far away from the show and that could obviously change.

Photokina – Cologne, Germany // May 8, 2019 – May 11, 2019

This is the first spring Photokina show, as they are moving to a yearly cycle in the spring going forward. We’re not sure how companies are going to react to this new way of doing things, and if there will be any attempt to get products announced for the show in May.

We think this would be the latest that Canon announces a new EOS R body and the new “holy trinity” of RF lenses, the RF 16-35mm f/2.8L, RF 24-70mm f/2.8L IS and RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS.

As previously mentioned, the focus from Canon is going to be on the RF mount when it comes to lenses, but a few DSLRs will likely also be announced next year.

We have nothing reliable to report about an EOS 7D Mark III at this time.

Canon EOS C300 Mark III coming in late 2019, with possible 8K option [CR1]

By Canon Rumors | November 13, 2018 | Canon Cinema EOS Rumors

We’re being told that the next iteration of the C300 will be coming in late 2019.

On an interesting note. We’re told that the EOS C300 Mark III will be launched at 4K but will be able to be upgraded to 8K for an additional cost after purchase. We have no information on how the upgrade would work, or how much it would cost.

Other features will include 4.4.4 as well as a new electronic image stabilization, but no details were given for the latter.

Testing for the new Cinema EOS body is already under way.

More to come…
