    IBIS is coming to select next generation Canon DSLRs [CR2]

    I guess not. The guess around the Canon rumors community seems for the moment to ba a 1DX mkIII (2020) and probably a 5D mkV later (2021?). But who knows?. If they can make a 90D by now - they could also make a 6D mkIII in some years. However - I don't think so my self. Canon has obviously not...

    Patent: Canon camera with in-body stabilization and in-lens stabilization working together.

    It is actually an guess from another user, and only relate to EF lenses with IS. The guess is that having IS and IBIS working together on the EF dataprotocol could be a problem becuase of slow datacommunication between EF lens and "R-series" body.

    Patent: Canon camera with in-body stabilization and in-lens stabilization working together.

    No - it is not a monopoly, but it has always been Canons strategy to divide their cameras into consumer segments. So does Nikon, so does almost every other manufacturer in a lot of other industries, also computer and cell phone industry. Even Sony with their A9 model and different models in the...

    Patent: Canon camera with in-body stabilization and in-lens stabilization working together.

    I makes perfect sense from a technical point of view as well from a marketing point of view (making RF lenses to stand out), that IBIS+IS will be for RF lenses only. However a EF lense with no IS (as 24-70 f/2.8) will benefit from IBIS in an RF body. (but the buyer of an prof "R-series" camera...

    Is the EOS 7D Mark II the last in the 7D series? We’re told that it is [CR1]

    It makes a lot of sense. Being a 6D shooter myself, I think we will neither see a 6D mkIII as well. A guess that there will be a 1DX mkIII, and maybe a 5DmkV and that will be last two fullframe DSLRs. And then now the last prosumer X0D/7D in one body. But hey - it will be 10+ years from now...

    The Canon EOS Rebel SL3/200D II/250D/Kiss X10 is coming very soon. Images & specifications leak ahead of the official announcement

    i simply don't get all the fuss about a damn Rebel camera. It is not supposed to be cutting edge - just a new model in the lineup.

    The future of the Canon EOS-1D X series [CR1]

    With the newly updated EF (L) lenses I quess that Canon will stay loyal to the EF mount for years to come. 2019 will be the year for EOS-R and RF. 2020 - 2021 will probably give us some hints on the future of the DSLR series and EF mount.

    Canon EOS RP Specifications & Images

    To me the main question is, what Canon will do with their existing fullframe DSLR line. Being the happy owner of the 6D "Classic", and more than a handfull of good glasses, I am split of what to do. Finally buy a 24-70 L f/2.8 , and then - later - a 5D mk IV og a V (when ever it comes) - of...

    The follow-up to the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II may come in 2019 [CR2]

    Do I understand this right? - Isit CRs guess that the 1DX III will be the last with EF-mount? - so 4-5 years from now, the will not be a EF mount option for 1DX series - it will be an RF mount?

    RF mount video products in the works, could see an RF Cinema EOS camera

    I also think it will be at least 5 years out before there will be no new EF lenses. I know that the FD to EF mount switch in 1987 is not comparable, because the FD mount died almost instantly, but in the first 5 years Canon released 8,8 NEW EF lenses PER year, hereof 12 (twelve) in the first...

    The first RF mount super telephoto lens will be a DO lens [CR2]

    Sony has a current lead in new cameras, and their approach to development and product cycles is more "agile" and fast than Canon. However, Canon is very big company - doing many other things than cameras and optics - and with a lot of momentum. It maybe take some time to pick up speed - but when...
