As previously reported, Canon has released a firmware update for the Canon EOS R. It turns out it was released at the end of November but hasn’t yet been posted by Canon USA for whatever reason.
Canon News has uncovered a patent for various super zoom optical formulas, and they’re all for the RF mount except for one that appears to be for EF-S.
We have received another set of specifications for the upcoming high-megapixel EOS R body, we dub it the “EOS Rs” for now. Canon may call it something else. The source claims to have shot with a prototype recently and that the plan is to announce the new camera in February 2020.
We have been told a couple of times now that a “pro” EOS R mirrorless camera that is in the works will have some kind of a hybrid EF/RF lens mount. So this basically means that you’d be able to mount both types of lenses without the use of an adapter.
Lensrentals.com is having their annual Black Friday sale, it’s a great time to save big on rentals and sales at their sister site Lensauthority.com.
6ave (99.6% approval) is selling the Canon EOS R body for $1449 (Reg $1799) for a limited time via ebay.
Canon News has uncovered a complex and interesting optical formula patent from Canon, this one is for an RF 35mm f/1.4 Soft Focus lens design.
Canon obviously needs some “affordable” prime and zoom lenses for the RF mount, and a few JPO patent applications seem to suggest we’re getting closer to that being a reality.
A new Canon camera has appeared for certification and is likely some kind of new Rebel.The only information about the camera from the certification agency is the camera will use the LP-E17 battery and is equipped with Wi-Fi (IEEE802.11b / g / n) and Bluetooth4.2.
2020 is shaping up as a big year for new product announcements from Canon, especially on the prosumer and professional fronts. The EOS M lineup will likely see at least one new model as well, as the EOS M50 will likely need a successor.
