Since yesterday's post, we've been getting a lot of information from unknown sources. I'm going to just post them all here without a rumor rating and you can do what you'd like with this information.
Canon EOS R Information:
- Name: Canon EOS R
- RF Mount (New mount, possible EF compatibility?)
- No reports of new “RF” lenses being announced alongside the body.
- Similar ergonomics to the EOS M50
- Slightly larger body than the EOS M50
- Will compete with the Sony A7 III & Nikon Z6
- 24mp or 28mp (Two different reports)
- Announcement September 5, 2018
As I mentioned, I won't be rating any of this information going forward. We only have one more week to wait to wait for the reveal.
But we can't wait a week! :( Help
Wow, only hold the lens while strapping the camera to your body?:)
Now, what does R stand for? Reflex (ironic), Resist (as in resist change), Resolution (not with 28MP, Retails for less than Sony?
None of these are very good but that’s all I can think of before I have my coffee. :coffee:
If I recall correctly the 5DS/R took everyone by surprise as did video on the 5Dmkii. Canon have a good track record on keeping things quiet.
I hate waiting, even if i can't afford it. Does the body sound too small ?
Someone is trolling us.
yes, yes yes. That would be fully in line with my "highly esoteric" o_O expectations. :p
No problem, if Canon decides to call new mount lenses "RF" instead of "EF-X". Although RF sounds like a "Rangefinder" acronym to me. :)
PS: maybe I posed as an inside source and sent those "specs" to CR guy :eek: ... just joking, would never do that.
Here's how you do it. "If this leaks ahead of announcement, no bonuses for anyone."
Could still happen, but yes. Also the EF-M 32 prime announcement has me thinking we might see an M5 II (or possibly even higher end EF-M rig) instead of a FF announcement.
Sounds like Canon may be releasing their FF mirror less earlier than planned in response to the announcement of the Nikon Z6 and Z7.
