    An RF mount L macro lens will be announced alongside the high-megapixel EOS R camera

    Unique? How about a tilt/shift Macro lens. That would be unique, but perhaps quite useful given the shallow DOF that wider apertures give us. Being able to move the focus plan around a bit would be beneficial.

    Patent: Multiple small RF prime lens optical formulas

    The 20 would be interesting in f/2. Throw in a 28/2 and a 50/2 or 50/1.4 and you'd have a decent family of moderately-priced wide-normal lenses. Maybe an 85/2 also. I know that they're working on the high-end first, but us regular people need lenses too. Although I have no problem adapting my...

    Patent: 83mp full-frame image sensor from Canon

    A natural projection of the new 32.5 mpx 90D/M6 II sensor. If that sensor is as good as some are saying, then this will be a really nice body from Canon. They'll certainly have the top-notch glass for it. Now, as for the 1-series, mirrorless or DSLR, I'm thinking that a new 30-32 mpx sensor...

    Our favourite hands-on preview of the Canon EOS 90D and EOS M6 Mark II

    Jared definitely prefers the mirrorless over the DSLR. And he makes a compelling case for just that. One thing I'd argue with him on - he suggests getting NO EOS-M glass. I disagree. While all the Canon EF glass is compatible with the adapter, there are a couple of nice gems in the M lineup...

    Canon officially announces the EOS 90D and EOS M6 Mark II

    I have a feeling that 2 bodies are going to be coming down the pike, perhaps after the holidays or in the spring - the real replacement for the M5 and the real replacement for the 7D2. And what will those bodies bring? Same/similar sensor to these, but with some tweaks, improved AF, higher...

    Patent: Canon RF 17-70mm f/3.5-5.6

    Yes, an ideal focal length for APS-C, or a nice ultra-wide zoom for FF. Also, with the cropped 4K on the R, it would be a nice lens for video.

    Poll: Are you going to be preordering the Canon EOS 90D or Canon EOS M6 Mark II?

    Pre-order? No. Might be interested in the M6 II, or an M5 if/when it comes out. Kind of holding out on the next RF mount body.

    Canon EOS M6 Mark II promotional video appears to have leaked

    Very interesting. Even more interesting than the 90D, mainly because I seem to be favoring the potential of the mirrorless.

    Canon EOS 90D promotional video appears to have leaked

    Looks like a pretty nice package overall. Interesting...

    An APS-C sensor equipped EOS R camera mentioned again [CR1]

    Size matters - look at the size of lenses for the M mount compared to the RF mount. What advantage, other than the price of the body, would an APS-C RF camera offer?

    An RF super telephoto zoom on the way, likely in late 2020 [CR1]

    200-500 f/5.6 IS and a 1.4X teleconverter would make a very good birding kit. Especially with a pretty fast sporty body.

    A new EOS Rebel is coming this month, possibly an EOS Rebel T8i or entry level EOS M camera[CR1]

    I think it's a pretty safe bet that there is always a new rebel coming. Sometimes, just a dressed-up version of the previous model with a couple of new features, and sometimes, an entirely new model. But there's always a new rebel right around the corner.

    Here is an updated list of unreleased Canon gear from certification agencies

    I might as well throw my WAG out there. M5-II M6-II Minor revision to M-100 Lenses - Smaller kit lens Super-zoom, say 18-200 or something like that Maybe an f/4 zoom, 16-55 or something of that nature. Ok, those last 2 put the W in WAG.

    Canon Releases DPP 4.10.40 & Picture Style Editor 1.22.40

    DPP is just a couple of features short of keeping me from needing other software like Lightroom to process photos. I'd gladly pay a little extra for those features in DPP as opposed to renting from Adobe.
