I think it’s safe to say we can put to rest the idea that IBIS will be coming in a Canon DSLR. It does not look like the EOS-1D X Mark III will be equipped with it and that IBIS will be reserved for the EOS R system, at least for now. Nikon will apparently be putting IBIS in the upcoming D6 and anonymous sources may have just figured Canon was going to do it too, especially after an IBIS patent showing a DSLR drawing appeared back in July.
Canon executives are now telling folks in the media that they are “considering” a high-end EOS R body with dual card slots and IBIS.
A representative with Canon told Digital Camera World with careful wording that a Canon is “considering” making an high-end EOS R camera.
There’s a high-end EOS R in consideration,” said Canon UK’s product intelligence consultant, David Parry. “So we are considering bringing a high-end EOS R to the market.
I think it’s safe to say they are well past the point of “considering” making such a camera and that one is in advanced development. A timeline is unknown, but I wouldn’t be shocked to see it come after the EOS-1D X Mark III is officially announced and shipping.
