Canon’s prosumer APS-C DSLRs the EOS 7D Mark II and the EOS 80D are both quite long in the tooth. Unfortunately, there has been very little information about their replacements.
Canon has mentioned that DSLR development will continue for the foreseeable future, which is good news for every Canon shooter that doesn’t have interest in a mirrorless camera at this time. No new EF lenses are coming in 2019, but a few DSLRs definitely are.
Which new DSLRs are coming?
I’m not sure what to make of the recent bit of information we have received, but we’re told that the APS-C DSLR lineup will shrink in model numbers and that the EOS 80D and EOS 7D Mark II cameras will be amalgamated into one DSLR body. The EOS 77D will remain the DSLR above the Rebels, and perhaps an update to the EOS 77D is also coming.
We’ve seen an amalgamation from Canon before, and that was with the release of the EOS-1D X. That camera took the place of the EOS-1Ds Mark III and the APS-S H specced EOS-1D Mark IV...
