As with any rumor site, once products are announced the inevitable question is what’s next? I have some information about what’s next, but there is still some areas of the Canon lineup I don’t have much information about.
- RF 50mm f/1.8 IS STM
- RF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM
- RF 18-45mm IS STM
- RF 100-400mm IS USM
- RF 24mm f/2.8 IS STM Macro
I expect that both the RF 50mm f/1.8 IS STM and RF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM will be announced in late August or early September, but I have not confirmed that as of yet.
The other 3 lenses are likely being held over to 2021.
There are other L lenses in the pipeline too, likely for late 2020 or early 2021.
I am told a bunch of “cool” adapters for the RF mount are coming in 2020, I cannot clarify what the adapters are at this time.
EOS R Cameras
There is no other EOS R camera scheduled to be announced in 2020, as always, that can change.
I wouldn’t be shocked to see the lineup get an update to the EOS RP and a higher megapixel version of the EOS R5 with fewer video features.
EOS M Cameras
I have been subtly told a couple of times that Canon will announce a “flagship” EOS M camera later in 2020. That information was pre-COVID, so those plans may have changed.
Expect at least one EF-M lens to be announced in 2020.
Canon DSLR (5D Mark V)
I haven’t heard a peep about a new Canon DSLR in a very long time. An EOS 5D Mark V probably has a place in the market, but I’m not sure if Canon agrees.
