Our friends over at Northlight received some information about a possible upcoming EOS R camera. After some direct communication between us, there appears to be some validity to the information.
First up, this is another source pointing to the inclusion of IBIS on an upcoming EOS R body. We were told previously that the IBIS system simply wasn’t ready for the EOS R release, though there were prototypes with IBIS floating around during testing. It’s safe to say that Canon will embrace IBIS in an upcoming release.
Secondly, is a 100mp EOS R in the pipeline? It’s highly possible. We’ve been told that Canon scrapped the development of an EOS 5DS/R follow-up and that their next high megapixel camera will be for the EOS R system. I don’t think we’ll see such a camera until 2020, as I believe there need to be some more native RF lenses announced to handle landscape and studio shooters.
