Now that the announcements for the Canon EOS 90D and Canon EOS M6 Mark II are done, what can we expect next from Canon?
Canon Cinema C500 Mark II (Pictured above)
- This cinema camera will be announced on or around September 5, 2019, ahead of IBC in Amsterdam. Here are some of the rumored specifications.
Canon EOS M100 Mark II
- We think an update to the entry-level Canon EOS M100 will come before the end of 2019.
Canon EOS Rebel T8I:
- We’ve heard rumblings about a new Rebel, and it wouldn’t shock me to see it announced alongside the EOS M100 replacement.
Canon RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM
- This should be officially announced in November, and begin shipping in December at a cost of around $2500.
Canon EOS RS (High-resolution EOS R camera)
- Before we get the truly professional EOS R series camera, we’ll likely see the announcement of a high-resolution EOS R camera, we dub it the “RS”, but that’s not an official name. This camera will be a replacement for the Canon EOS 5DS and Canon EOS 5DS R.
- There has been no good information on when this will be announced, but I wouldn’t be shocked to see it announced before we close out 2019, if that doesn’t happen, look for a pre CP+ announcement. That trade show begins at the end of February.
Canon RF 85mm f/1.2L DS USM:
- The last of the 6 latest RF lenses should be officially announced in late 2019, early 2020.
Canon EOS-1D X Mark III:
- With Nikon announcing the D6 next week, we think we’re going to see some kind of announcement for an EOS-1D X Mark II before CP+ in February. We have not heard an awful lot about the flagship DSLR as of yet.
I think if we’re logical about things, 2020 will be the big year from Canon for new prosumer and professional gear announcements.
