We’ve speculated recently that Canon will not be releasing next iterations for the EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R, and instead will move the high megapixel cameras to the EOS R line.
A few more people have told us that this will indeed be the case and that an EOS R camera with slightly more than 75mp is in development. This camera could appear sometime in the 2nd half of 2019 we’re told. Though an exact announcement date is a long way from being decided.
One source added that the high megapixel EOS R will come once 4 or 5 more native RF mount lenses are announced, with one of the new lenses being “the best landscape lens in the Canon lineup”.
There are no more imaging announcements in 2018, but early 2019 should see the PowerShot and EOS DSLR lineup getting new additions, and a bit later another EOS R camera body, though the next EOS R body is expected to be “entry level”.
More to come…
