2018 was definitely the “year of the lens” for Canon as well as the third party manufacturers. Canon announced nine lenses, their most since 2012, including 7 L lenses, which is the most Canon has ever announced in one calendar year.
Canon camera announcements were a different story. There has been no “professional” camera announcement from Canon since the EOS 5D Mark IV in 2016. The EOS 6D Mark II was the only full frame camera announced in 2017, a year which brought us oddities like the EOS 77D and the PowerShot G1 X Mark III.
2018 only saw 2 ILC cameras that brought about any sort of excitement. The EOS M50, which has been a very successful APS-C mirrorless camera, as well as Canon’s first full-frame mirrorless camera, the EOS R. As you all know, the EOS R also brought us the brand new RF mount.
Canon also announced two entry-level Rebel’s, the EOS T7 and the super cheap EOS Rebel 4000D for certain markets. The EOS 4000D sports a lens mount that isn’t metal!
Two non-G series PowerShot cameras were also announced. Including the long-awaited superzoom the PowerShot SX70 HS, which unfortunately was just a warmed over version of the PowerShot SX60 HS. Canon also announced the compact PowerShot SX740 HS.
We expect 2019 to be a much bigger year for camera bodies from Canon. We expect at least two RF mount camera bodies, possibly an EOS-1D X Mark II replacement as well as some upper tier APS-C camera bodies.
Canon’s first ever mirrorless camera, the EOS R, proves to be well worth the wait with its revolutionary features. Integrated into the camera is Canon’s brand-new RF lens mount, which allows the EOS R to support a new series of lenses and highly advanced optical technologies.
The EOS M50 is a compact interchangeable lens camera for aspiring photographers looking for an easy way to boost the quality of their photos and videos.
