Canon EOS Rumors

The Canon EOS 5D Mark V is in the works [CR2]

We have been told that Canon still has plans to update its most popular professional full-frame camera, the EOS 5D Mark IV.

The EOS 5D Mark V apparently appeared on an internal roadmap, along with an EOS R Mark II, the source did not provide the timeline of the roadmap.

We think it makes a lot of sense to see another iteration of the EOS 5D DSLR, along with a similarly specced EOS R Mark II.

With all of the new cameras expected in 2020 from Canon, I don’t see either the EOS 5D Mark IV or EOS R replacement coming before Q4 of 2020.

I just swallowed my coffee the wrong way! Ok, I can hold onto those EF lenses a bit longer. Oh, how I fretted they'd be paperweights by now. :rolleyes: Actually, crow tastes ok if you marinate it in enough hot sauce for a day, then get drunk before eating it with rice.

Sounds like they will go the same route as the 90D and M6 mk II, same specs different systems and let the market decide what to buy.

This is excellent news.... having gone 300D, 1D ii, 5D ii, and then 5D iv (and the latter being the best of those for AF), another increment would be great.

A 5D Mk V released alongside a R Mk II is a win win, especially as their development would also be in parallel perhaps with a single team.

Outstanding! I tend to skip generations in the 5D series and currently own a 5D3. A (nearly) simultaneous introduction of a similar R camera would also be most welcome.

Who knows maybe the 5D V will have RF mount. And better maybe when you go on liveview you'll have a LCD instead of the black Viewfinder.
You forgot the mirror. The RF lenses focus is shorter than that of the EF lenses. the 5D therefore can not have RF mount.

Does Nikon or Some other company have auto AFMA on any of their dSLR's? If it works, that would be a great incentive to consider a 5DV!

I'm so excited for this camera!

I just hope Canon doesn't raise the resolution too much. 30mp feels perfect on the 5D4.
