The EOS M lineup of cameras was designed by the PowerShot group within Canon, and with the PowerShot line pretty much, we imagine those people have moved onto new teams, so we could get a re-imagination of what a super compact ILC from Canon looks like.
This could also signal the evolution of the “Rebel” name.
Keith over at Northlight Images has uncovered some optical formulat patents for lenses that are likely to arrive over the next year or so. One being an RF 11-24mm f/4L, which is definitely needed in the RF lineup. A Canon RF 10-24mm f/4L has been on our roadmap for quite some time.
The second is a zoom fisheye lens that builds off the Canon RF 8-15mm f/4L USM. The optical formula in the patent is for a Canon RF 8-24mm f/4L USM, which sounds like a very cool lens. As with the EF version of the zoom fisheye, it will work as a circular fisheye on a full-frame sensor and as a ‘normal’ fisheye on the crop sensors found in the Canon EOS R7 and Canon EOS R10.
Canon 11-24mm f/4L USM optical formula
Focal Length: 11.33mm – 23.30mm
Half Angle of View: 59.63° – 42.88°
Image Height: 21.64mm
Entire Lens Length: 135.40mm – 130.90mm (front element to image sensor)
Valhalla, N.Y., May 31, 2022 – FUJIFILM North America Corporation today announced the launch of its next flagship X Series mirrorless digital camera, FUJIFILM X-H2S (X- H2S). The most advanced X Series mirrorless camera yet, X-H2S includes advanced features for both still photography and video. It is also the first APS-C digital camera of its kind to feature Fujifilm’s 26.16MP X-TransTM CMOS 5 HS imaging sensor, a stacked, back-side illuminated imaging sensor with a signal reading speed up to four times faster than Fujifilm’s previous X-TransTM CMOS 4*1.
X-TransTM CMOS 5, combined with the newly minted X-Processor 5 (which doubles the camera’s processing power compared to X-Processor 4), greatly enhances overall image fidelity at lower ISOs and reduces noise at higher ISOs. Subject-detection AF, which maximizes the tracking speed and accuracy of moving subjects is now made possible through the incorporation of an AI processor.
Valhalla, N.Y., May 31, 2022 – FUJIFILM North America Corporation is pleased to introduce FUJINON XF150-600mmF5.6-8 R LM OIS WR telephoto zoom lens (XF150- 600mmF5.6-8 R LM OIS WR). Engineered for photographers who rely on extreme zoom capabilities, even in the most challenging photographic situations. From distant wildlife to sprawling landscape photography, XF150-600mmF5.6-8 R LM OIS WR is designed to create long-distance images with pinpoint accuracy.
“The outstanding coverage that is achievable with this lens places a range of far- reaching subjects–including wildlife, nature, and landscape details–firmly within frame,” said Victor Ha, vice president, Electronic Imaging and Optical Devices Divisions, FUJIFILM North America Corporation. “An incredible focal range paired with fast, reliable autofocus, and a perfectly balanced, lightweight design removes barriers between photographers and their subjects, so their only limitation is their own creativity.”
The lens consists of 24 lens elements in 17 groups including three extra-low dispersion (ED) elements and four Super ED elements, to deliver an advanced level of image resolution edge to edge across the entire zoom range.
Covering 35mm equivalent focal lengths of 229mm – 914mm, image makers can extend the reach of XF150-600mmF5.6-8 R LM OIS WR through either FUJIFILM XF1.4X TC WR or FUJIFILM XF2X TC WR teleconverters. The lens’s longest focal length extends to 1200mm (35mm equivalent of 1828mm), closing distances in an instant.
The fast autofocus system, driven by a linear motor, attains precise focus quickly and accurately, even in the super-telephoto range, where focusing can be difficult due to a shallow depth of field.
As with any camera launch, this time the Canon EOS R7 and Canon EOS R10, the day after has people asking “what’s next?”. We get it, that’s what we’re in the business of.
The information about what’s next is fairly vague, but we think there are some realistic rumors floating around.
The next RF mount camera will be a full-frame model and it won’t be the Canon EOS R1, as we expect that at some point in 2023, even if folks wish it was coming sooner. With Canon still having issues meeting the demand for the Canon EOS R3, I think that expecting new tech from Canon in the near term is unlikely.
We will see a replacement or two for the Canon EOS R and Canon EOS RP. While the Canon EOS RP is still selling quite well because of the pricepoint, the Canon EOS R is pretty much forgotten about now.
Past rumors have suggested that Canon will introduce the world’s most affordable full-frame camera and another full-frame camera that will sit below the Canon EOS R6.
Lenses? You can check our roadmap. I imagine new higher yield lenses will come once supply issues abate further. You can check out our roadmap here, which we’ve had up for quite some time and has been extremely accurate.
Canon will address the Cinema EOS lineup in August we have been told, we believe that we’ll see some 8K options for the lineup.

Dan Watson had a chance to spend 3 days with the Canon EOS R7 and has posted an initial review on YouTube. As always, these reviews are done with “pre-production” cameras, but it’s safe to say that these are 99% of what you’ll be able to purchase soon.
From Dan Watson:
Took the Canon R7 for an awesome 3 day test with sports, wildlife, portraits, and obviously, some crazy cinematic video…and it didn’t disappoint.
