We’ve been told again that Canon will be announcing new gear at the end of August. Since the availability of new products rarely happens right away, there’s always the possibility of an announcement being delayed into September.
What’s coming?
The Canon EOS 90D received another mention from this source, along with another camera body. If I was to bet on what that second camera would be, I’d wager it’s a new EOS M body. Likely to replace both the EOS M5 and EOS M6.
The same source also said new lenses were coming at the same time. Canon has stated there would be no EF lenses coming 2019. I could see the EOS M getting a new kit lens, as well as the official announcements of the outstanding RF mount lenses, the RF 70-200mm f/2.8L, IS USM, RF 24-70mm f/2.8L IS USM, RF 15-35mm f/2.8L IS and RF 85mm f/1.2L DS USM.
More to come…

I've been waiting for a canon 24-70 2.8 IS forever... That's the lens that I'm really waiting for to buy into the RF system.

Mid August has been typically a time that Canon has announced new products. The goal is to have the latest and greatest gear available in time for the Christmas Holiday season. Buying seems to pickup by October / November.

Those RF lenses would be nice; new M body too. Is February then likely for a new R body?

I thought we were getting the high megapixel R in 2019, not 2020. It would be disappointing to see no further R body releases this year.

This is their chance I think to save people from going into the Sony a7r4. That camera is a beast. It's coming in September so I hope canon will announce something for their RF system, even if it means waiting past September for a better R model.
For quite a while now, a big part of Sony's growth strategy has been to get owners to switch brands at the $3500 price point with attractive specs. We shall see whether it works any better this time than it has in the past. As time goes by, more and more buyers are pretty happy with the cameras they already have, especially considering the costs of switching brands. On the other hand, with the a7r4, Sony may have come out with some interesting competition for the a9.

It will be interesting what the 90D is.
Will it have as good weather sealing as a 7DII.
Will it show any improvements on a 7D II performance wise?
For sure it will be someway better than the 80D.
The 80D already has a better sensor than the 7DII, so the 90D could be even better, and possibly 30 mpx as well. Canon AF systems have improved, and using the 1DXII system as in the 5DIV could be a significant improvement. I'm looking forward to adding a 90D to my armoury as I miss my 7DII, which I shouldn't have sold.
