EOS Magazine had the prospect to interview Mike Burnhill of Canon Europe and talk about the way forward for the EOS R system in addition to DSLRs and lenses.

There are some fascinating bits of knowledge all through the interview as Mr Burnhill discusses the continued want of DSLRs in addition to the actual fact EF lens improvement goes to proceed and we should always see some new ones in 2020.

Talking about DSLRs:

AA: Will Canon be introducing extra DSLR cameras?

MB: Yes. Canon nonetheless sees demand for all types of cameras – together with DSLR and mirrorless – so we’ll proceed to provide throughout a number of product strains. We’ve solely simply phased out the EOS-1 movie digicam as a result of there have been nonetheless individuals shopping for it in sure markets, and we’ll see the identical with the DSLR cameras.

Mike addresses a query about an APS-C EOS R digicam, one thing we really feel is inevitable.

AA: Which brings us onto APS-C with the R system…

MB: Yes, the system might help it, however once more it’s not a precedence as a result of now we have the M, and what we have to fill out is the lens vary for the EOS R full-frame.

I’ll over analyse what Mr Burhill mentioned about future EOS R system cameras.

AA: Do you see a full-frame digicam coming in at a worth beneath the RP? 

MB: Yes.

AA: And a professional model earlier than the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo?

MB: Well, that’s the million greenback query…

He straight solutions the primary query with a “Yes” and doesn’t reply the second query. In my expertise, this implies the “full-frame camera” beneath the EOS RP isn’t on the official product roadmap and he gave his opinion.  Not answering the second query tells you that there’s undoubtedly a professional degree EOS R physique in superior improvement and is formally on the roadmap and nobody can speak about it.

I think someday within the subsequent 12 months we’re going to be getting that professional degree digicam physique (not the high-resolution mannequin). You can try the complete interview here.
